The End of Journalism

Sometime in 2008, journalism as we knew it died, and advocacy media took its place. There have always been media biases and prejudices. Yet we have never quite seen anything like the current media infatuation with Barack Obama, and its collective desire not to raise key issues of concern to the American people. Here were four areas of national interest that were largely ignored.

Republicans look great soiling themselves in jealousy

Far be it for REpublicans to admit that George Bush and Cheney's flaws as speakers and leaders are what cause the attraction to Obama. Not only is he a great speaker, but he's also smart and he's also opposite in that he is BLACK and He has a friggin middle name that challenges everything going on in the war on terror.

The infatuation with movie star Reagan was perfectly acceptable, right? What a load. It happens that George Bush and his VP absolutely sucked immeasurably at connecting with the public, and here comes someone who can. It has nothing to do with Messiah or infatuation. We're just ready for someone qualified and intelligent.

BTW the NRO and all those others including the "dink tanks" like Heritage, American Enterprise, Pajamas = ways for REpublicans to be employed and feed lots of lies to their dutiful zombie supporters.  


Since when is NRO "Journalism" ?

people who talk about "facts" should first understand them before offering to evaluate real journalists.
