Why the national MSM has no street cred

Posted by – 9/25/08

“How to Blow a Scoop.” Hmm, indeed. What kind of response would you expect from the mainstream media if the son of a Republican state representative hacked into Barack Obama’s yahoo email account? Outrage, right? Well sure, that’s a big scoop. So why isn’t the same level of devotion applied to the story about the son of a Democrat state representative who hacked into Sarah Palin’s yahoo email account? Further:

A Republican with a personal email account? Scandal! A Democrat who hacks a Republican’s personal email account? Ho-hum.

The vast majority of the media is inarguably in the tank for Obama, and it’s impossible to pretend there is any kind of objectivity going on. Shoot, the media’s current posture makes Bill Clinton look fair-minded and unbiased by comparison! I much prefer the Huffington Post over most of the liberal rags out there. At least with the Huffington Post, you know exactly what kind of ideology is being shoved down your throat.

Clinton, McCain?

Seriously, when is Bill Clinton just going to start stumping for McCain?

“We know he didn’t do it because he’s afraid because Sen. McCain wanted more debates,” Clinton said, adding that he was “encouraged” by the joint statement from McCain and Sen. Barack Obama.

And in regards to President Bush’s address to the nation last night?

“I thought it was the clearest statement of why we’re in the fix we’re in, at least what the nature of it is and why some national action is needed,” Clinton said.

I honestly don’t know what I’m supposed to do with this newfound respect for Bill Clinton. He’s certainly not being partisan anymore, but while he’s clearly not running for office again, it kind of sounds like he’s not really even in support of his own party for this election. This will turn out bad for Obama.

Endearment to Palin:

“I think that she and her husband and their kids come across gutsy, spirited and real,” he said in an interview to be broadcast Wednesday night. “I have significant disagreements with her about any number of social and economic issues but I find her an appealing person and I think that it’s best to say that Senator McCain looks like he knew what he was doing. He picked somebody who gave him a lot of energy, a lot of support.”

Does he really support Obama? If it’s a yes, it’s the most unenthusiastic support I’ve ever seen. What do you think?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Uh…

What am I supposed to do with this weird feeling of respect for Bill Clinton?

I mean, this is what I’ve been saying for a while now. The political dialogue is much more fruitful when we don’t think we need to find some demon in the other party’s representatives. There’s enough lack of character among both parties, and that’s certainly an issue that should be rooted out for the betterment of the country, but it doesn’t typically apply to candidates for president. That’s usually the congressmen and senators. Ted Stevens comes to mind. Charlie Rangle as well.

There are enough differences between the two parties and the candidates those parties put forward to make your decisions based on their policy and how they view the role of government. Obama’s not the antichrist. And if he were, you wouldn’t be able to do anything about it anyway, so let it go.
