After our embassador to Libya is murdered and his body paraded upside down through the streets, after Egyptians tear down and burn our flag and hoist an Al Quada flag and we respond with an apology which is only disavowed after our embassador is murdered....
The only thing the press can think to do is give Romney the third degree on his statement last night. He came out with a harsh condemnation of these actions long before anything was heard from the president. So today all we hear on tv is stupid questions hurled at Romney. It seems the only security the press cares about is the president's job security. Not much about the people in our embassies in the middle east.
The journalists among us have literally been shouting at Romney this morning. Where was Obama yesterday? No one knows. He's out giving a statement now and then leaving for a fund raiser in Vegas. Where are the angry media shouts to him demanding to know what he's doing and how this happened. People died yesterday folks, our people. Our head guy's body was paraded through the streets upside down.
What Romney did was remind people of our freedoms, not political and sentimental correctness.He said, "America will not tolerate attacks and will defend freedom of speech and religion. These acts were outrageous and disgusting." And our journalists are giving him hell. Our people were murdered folks. All the media cares about is making Romney look bad and protecting Obama.
As Obama said last week, I'm the president. Well. It's looking like Carter with a lot more media help.
I would be a very good thing if the media was not in lockstep with the Obama campaign every minute of the day. Hey, don't think so? How could every media outlet come up with the same talking points everyday. Coincidence? No.
I'm so sick and tired of what stands for journalism today. They betray their important role in our society for political partisanship. rant over.
