I usually don’t care much for Breitbart “news.” (I think they sometimes distort to the right even more than the “mainstream” media distorts to the left.) But I just read an article posted on their web site that absolutely NAILS the “performance” of the mainstreamers in covering (as in covering UP) the four ongoing Obama administration “scandals.” Here it is:


By John Nolte 6 June 2013 6:10 A.M. PDT

Well, if it is Thursday, there must be a new Obama scandal. But one thing is for damn sure, whatever that scandal is, you can bet the American mainstream media will be playing catch up and not carrying the glory of breaking a story about a major White House scandal.

Fact: Over the past few weeks, four major scandals have broken over the Obama administration, and it is a very sad (and frightening) truth that our pathetic, American, lapdog mainstream media is not responsible for breaking even a single one.

Verizon? Nope, not our guys. That was the Brits over at The Guardian.

IRS? Nope, not our guys. The IRS broke their own scandal with a planted question.

The Justice Department's seizure of Associated Press phone records? Nope, not our guys. Believe it or not, the Associated Press didn’t even break that story. Like the IRS, we only found out because the Justice Department outted itself in a letter notifying the AP of what it had done.

Benghazi? Are you kidding. With a couple of rare exceptions (Jake Tapper, Sharyl Attkisson) the media has spent the last 8 months attacking those seeking the truth (Congress, Fox News) not seeking the truth. It was the GOP congress that demanded the email exchanges around the shaping of the talking points, not the media.

Left up to the media, we wouldn't know anything about Libya. All of the media's energy was collectively poured into ensuring the truth was never discovered.

And do you want to know what makes this realization especially pathetic? In three of the four scandals (the AP being the exception), had our media been less interested in protecting Power and more interested in holding Power accountable, these huge, career-making stories were right there for their taking.

For over a year now, conservative Tea Party groups have been complaining about IRS harassment. But because Obama told them to, the media hate the Tea Party. So in the face of these complaints and even a few Congressional inquiries, the media either ignored the harassment reports or openly sided with the IRS. (No joke. See: )

Obviously, you can say the same about Libya. All the dots were there to connect: Security failures, two weeks of lies, the midnight arrest of some hapless filmmaker… But rather than connect the dots, the media played goalie for Obama against Fox News and Darrell Issa. Besides, there was a re-election to win and Todd Akin got something wrong about The Womanparts.

Moreover, there are still plenty of dots to connect about Libya. But the new SQUIRREL is OVERREACH and already the lapdogs are back in goalie formation.

As far as the Verizon story, members of Congress, specifically Democrat Senators Ron Wyden (OR) and Mark Udall (CO), have been hint-hint-wink-winking to the media that something is horribly amiss going back to December:

In a Senate floor speech in December, Wyden hinted at classified information he had received but could not share due to Senate rules that indicated the law “on Americans’ privacy has been real, and it is not hypothetical.”

“When the public finds out that these secret interpretations are so dramatically different than what the public law says, I think there’s going to be extraordinary anger in the country,” he told The Huffington Post the following month.

That is from today's Politico report on the Verizon scandal. Apparently, Politico knew of this back in December but had all their investigative researchers digging into why those short-skirted Tea Partiers had it coming, so they missed another one of the biggest stories of the year.

Politico shouldn’t feel bad, though, because when it comes to missing the four biggest scoops of the Obama administration, they have plenty of lazy, lapdog, sycophant company in that department.

Our media is not only biased, it is an utter and complete failure and embarrassment. And although there are plenty of remaining table scraps to make meals out of, the media is already losing interest in the IRS, Libya, and AP scandals, but for only one reason--they are absolutely terrified of where they might lead.

During the Bush years, it was the New York Times, Washington Post and Sy Hersh breaking story after story after story about the White House. And yes, some of that reporting was--ahem --overreach, but at least Power knew it was being watched; our democracy was safe because an overzealous media is what you call a luxury problem.

Today, it is the complete opposite and the result is an administration run amok.

Get down on your knees and thank your Maker for conservative New Media, Roger Ailes, and for the few true liberals left in the media, like Glenn Greenwald--who works for the Brits.“

Chief, this is exactly why we have large amount of patriots that are liberal that hate anything Conservative or Republican because our backbone, the mainstream media have failed us. These patriots consider the truth hate speech and witch hunting while on the flip side they demonized and opposed anything George W. Bush did. Here’s the example ”Bush lied people died “ Bill and Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Joe Biden and a host of prominent Democrats believed and said the same in regards to WMD’s. It doesn’t take a genius to know the Iraq war was optional and in hindsight it could have been handled differently; however Dubya went to Congress and got the approval to do so and all you here from the left is Bush took us into an illegal war, really. If that were true he would have been impeached in 2007 when the Democrats took over Congress. President the Senator Obama said no President has the authority to use military force without congressional approval unless there was imminent danger to the US. Was there an imminent threat to America from Khadafy in Libya in 2011? Will an Obama supporter explain to this blogosphere why Obama can break the law and get a pass, and Dubya can follow the law and don’t?

Apparently not...

This a fair post chief, I don't understand partisanship over right and wrong.

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Jun 12, 2013 at 13:15 PM

It's the American way, Funky. Think of it this way - when Bush orders Americans surveilled for national security, it's "wrong." When Obama does it, it's "right."

It's called hypocrisy.

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Jun 12, 2013 at 14:04 PM

Just saw this one??!!

Funk, I do seem to recall Ronald Wilson Reagan (President 666, all his names are 6 letters!!! ooooo-weeeeee-00000!)
authorizing a nightime jet attack on Ghadaffi's home and compound back in the 80's. Ronald didn't run that particular strike by congress before doing it. On another note, he could not "remember" very much about Iran-Contra arms dealing by Oliver North and his having known 'anything' about that particular scandal.

JimmyMack, I'm behind the power curve on this; however if what you have presented is true, the Gipper was wrong too.

sebekm commented on Thursday, Jun 20, 2013 at 16:33 PM

Good policy remains good policy; bad policy is still bad policy. Obama continues the Bush Doctrine because - regardless of what he said as Candidate Obama - IT IS GOOD POLICY.

As for the Gipper, I believed then that it was good policy to take Gadaffi out - just as it was good policy for regime change in Iraq. I fault our the leadership for not having the guts to tell the truth to the American people as to what our policy was; BUT IT DON'T FAULT THEM FOR THE POLICY ITSELF.

Obama's actions re: Homeland Security have been in the the best interests of this country. There is a distinction between homeland security and foreign policy. I don't agree with Obama on the full breadth of his foreign policy, but he's doing pretty well on homeland security. Let's hope that the latest scandals don't throw away the tools we've developed to keep Americans safe.

Once again Jimmy Mack goes back to Reagan as if that gives Obama a pass when he violates the Constitution. It makes no different which party is in power when the Constitution is by-passed. Wayne Miller, 1SG, USA (Ret)
