First it was Captain Legthrill, declaring to the world that his public love affair with Teh Won has come to an end. Chris Matthews apparently has gotten over his puppy love for Zero, and has crawled back into the closet with his binky and his desiccated, well beaten carcass of Karl Marx to hug.
But it looks like the rest of the presidential media fan base is following suit.
“The Justice Department’s collection of journalists’ phone records and the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups have challenged Obama’s credibility as a champion of civil liberties – and as a president who would heal the country from damage done by his predecessor.” — Washington Post
“…reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.” — Politico
This isn’t just about press rights. It’s about the right of citizens to know what their government is doing. In an atmosphere of secrecy and punishment – despite the hollow promises of transparency – that’s getting harder every day.”– New York Times
It didn’t take Benghazi. It didn’t take the deaths of four Americans and the subsequent lies. It didn’t take Fast and Furious. It didn’t even take the IRS.
It took a rogue Justice Department violating the sanctity of the First Amendment by trying to get its claws on the phone records of the Associated Press for the media to wake up and quit playing domestic abuse victim to Zero’s wife beater.
Maybe they’ll finally start reporting objectively what is really going on in this administration.
