President Obama is inexcusably irresponsible. And so is the mainstream media.
Even the press admits that the press is pathetic.
Sid Davis, who used to work for NBC Washington, criticizes: “If you watch an Obama news conference… correspondents… [act] as if they are in the room with a monarch and they have to wait to be recognized by the president.”
Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Haynes Johnson calls Obama-press relations “very stale, very structured, very pale.”
And NBC and ABC reporter Sander Vanocur adds: “You want to know what’s wrong with the press? The press is what’s wrong with the press.”
Case in point: Laura Rozen, who wrote an article on Obama’s “major address” tonight.
Her piece is wholly devoid of criticism of a tone deaf and arrogant president. That makes her – and her fellow fawners in the press – quite possibly an idiot and even more likely a traitor.
What other logical conclusion can readers reach when Rozen reports how Obama is “supposed to propose significant U.S. and international economic assistance to support fledgling Arab democracies, in particular in Egypt and Tunisia,” without once mentioning this country’s budget crisis.
Nor does she acknowledge that Egypt is no longer a reliable ally by any means. In fact, it might even become an intense enemy along the lines of Iran.
Instead she quotes multiple so-called authorities giving benign or positive commentary of the President. Her lack of proper coverage is disgraceful and downright disgusting, the very opposite of intellectualism and the very definition of subservient.
I’d say that Rozen and her affiliates should be ashamed of themselves. But that would be assuming they have any shame left, which – let’s face it – doesn’t seem likely.
