Mainstream media lying

  • Follow Letters

Once more the mainstream media show their obvious left-wing bias.

During an interview recently on ABC with Robin Roberts, first lady Michelle Obama misspoke when she said a Chicago teenager was killed with an automatic weapon – when, in fact, she was shot with a pistol.

Not only did they not ask Mrs. Obama about her mistake/lie, they deleted it before airing the interview. When questioned about deleting Mrs. Obama’s mistake/lie, an ABC spokesman said, “The edits made to Robin’s interview with the first lady were made solely for time.”

The missing words saved a total of seven seconds. Once more, the mainstream media prove they are in the bag for the Obama administration, and we cannot believe what they say.

Once again, the child is dead. Whether it was a case of miss speak, who knows. What does matter is that these youth have guns; they are too available and lead to death. We could find Sadam Hussein hiding in a hole on the other side of the world but we can't come up with sensible control of weapons to keep them out of the hands of the wrong people.

Some body is in the bag alright but I think it's for the NRA.

So It Doesn't Matter?

Truth Matters, so it doesn't matter that it wasn't an automatic weapon. You just feel all weapons are "too available"? Figures. This is why conservatives fight against infringement of the 2nd Amendment. It's all guns liberals are after.

It does matter because either

It does matter because either people understand what they are talking or they don't! It is very clear reporters don't do their home work (and most liberal politicians don't either) on gun issues. Diana Sawyer talked about a 22 Cal assault weapon the other night! So the press edits and does what it can to keep the Obama's from looking ignorant and like hypocrites!

In areas where gun ownership is the highest, crime is down. Guns are too available to bad people.

Ignorance has never stopped

the Obama's talking about something they didn't know anything about before. So, why should this situation be any different? And it's obvious to the most casual observer that the lame stream media are leftist and always have been.

hmmmmm.....so the attempt to ban the AR-15 because it was used at Sandy Hook (even though we know that is a lie) doesn't matter? What other lies can we tell the public to get them whipped into a fury in order to get something banned. I guess if you don't mind the Government playing you like a fiddle, then it really doesn't matter.....but to me it does.

If the press ever quits

If the press ever quits propping Obama up his support would tumble like a house of cards.

Even many Democrats just voted to kill the Obamacare tax on medical devices. That was a MAJOR funding stream for Obamacare. Obamacare is going to turn out to be a HUGE unfunded DEBT....maybe as much as the cost of the wars before it's over.

And the top health insurance companies are announcing that private insurance premiums will rise between 20% and 100% AGAIN this year prior to the January 2014 full implementation of Obamacare.

The Federal government has not set up any insurance exchanges and is totally unprepared, and unfunded, to implement Obamacare next January. Going to be a mess.

And 33 states are refusing to set up their own insurance exchanges.

It is turning out that there is NOTHING affordable in the Affordable Care Act. It's another big welfare program that is unpaid for, will be an administrative nightmare full of fraud and abuse, may not work at all, and most certainly will NOT help anyone get better care.

The gun control legislation is falling apart.

And I think most Americans are kind of feeling like the Republicans were correct about Sequestration being A-Okay so far.

This administration is a series of one failure after another propped up by the flaming liberal mainstream media.

The main stream media

The main stream media has to much invested in Obama to stop helping him. If he goes down they will loose the last thread of creditability they have left.

Don't be deceived by the lamestream media ...

Mr. Cushman is 100 percent dead on. And if that teenager had been armed with an automatic weapon, countering the pistol she was shot with, maybe she'd be alive today. Take that, MRS. Obama.

"....we can't come up with

.
It isn't the weapons that we need to control, it's the crazies.

How many sane, settled, law abiding working people have committed gun crimes that YOU know of? If you look hard enough, across the entire country, you might find one or two. I don't know of any.

Going after the nut jobs and known criminals would make far too much sense. Also, it might require pulling a little money away from vote buying giveaway social programs and that is just not going to happen is it?

Outlaw every gun in the country if you can. (But we know that will never happen.) I'll tell you what would occur next. A black market industry would develop overnight.

Criminals would get rich just as they did during prohibition. Also, secret gun shops would spring up across the nation, as they have in Afghanistan where gunsmiths turn out fully automatic AK-47s in mud huts dotting the landscape. Beautiful weapons too, rivaling anything made in Mother Russia.

Only in this country we'd be making them faster and even better.

Let's be honest. If the media were to show all of Obama's faux pas he'd look like, well he'd look like the idiot he is. And I do mean idiot!

Not to put too fine a point....

on it YoungFred, but I don't think the guy is an idiot. On the other hand, he is in no way the brilliant genius the media and his legions of salivating minions would have us believe.

At best, he is of slightly above average intelligence. An incompetent and unaccomplished charlatan (con artist) with better than average oratory skills. (Only slightly better than average.)

If all the pieces hadn't fallen into place for him and the Democrats, it would be easy to visualize him going door to door selling aluminum siding for a living.

Instead, he has come to epitomize the dangers of affirmative action.

Once he is out of the spotlight and his media support group has another Democrat "star" to focus on, his light will dim and history will drop him down into proper prospective.

America will then be faced with the daunting task of undoing much of the chaos he will have left behind.
