Democrat Pollster Slams MSM Over Silence on Benghazi Atrocity

Democratic Pollster Pat Cadell rightly slams the MSM over its failure to report on the terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya in which a US ambassador and three other Americans were killed. Why would they neglect this? because they want to protect Barack Obama who made a few brief regretful noises before hopping on Air Force 1 to go to Las Vegas for a fundraiser and proceeded to lie about the attack for nine days (and counting), blaming it on a spontaneous reaction to an obscure YouTube video instead of what it really was; a planned and coordinated attack, most likely as a response to his repeated football spiking, end-zone dancing by Obama over the killing of Osama Bin Laden. They are letting us know they are not defeated.

This was a major foreign policy and security failure that because it reflects badly on the Won, must not be spoken of.

Here is the take-away portion of Pat Cadell’s remarks:

“The press’s job is to stand in the ramparts and protect the liberty and freedom of all of us from a government and from organized governmental power. When they desert those ramparts and decide that they will now become active participants, that their job is not simply to tell you who you may vote for, and who you may not, but, worse—and this is the danger of the last two weeks—what truth that you may know, as an American, and what truth you are not allowed to know, they have, then, made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and, in my opinion, made themselves the enemy of the American people.

The following video captures the highlights.

The Fourth Estate is getting to look more like a Fifth Column. They cannot be trusted to tell us the truth.

Romney Releases 2011 Tax Return, Pays More Than Required, Left Comes Unglued

Seriously. The commentariat on the left are upset because the Romney’s paid more tax than owed after only partially deducting charitable contributions amounting to 30% of their income in 2011. The TaxProf has the details here.

The MSM have been trying their damnable damnedest to portray Mitt Romney as some greedy, uncaring, evil man and once again the facts turn out to not fit The NarrativeTM . Regrettably, too many people still rely on the MSM to get their news and  don’t realize they are being told brazen lies.

“Take the Goddamn Gloves Off,” Conservatives

That is what Zombie is saying over at PJ Media:

“Memo to non-leftist bloggers, reporters, and culture-shapers: TAKE THE GODDAMN GLOVES OFF.

This campaign just got real. From right now until election day, no holds are barred.

The mainstream media has dropped all pretense of impartiality. Their behavior in response to the latest Mideast crisis was blatant, outrageous — and effective. When the world erupted on September 11 and the Obama administration groveled at the feet of our barbarian attackers, the major news outlets — knowing that this was a disastrous turn of events for the Obama campaign which could not be spun in his favor — decided the only solution was to brazenly change the subject to a fabricated peripheral side issue: that Romney had committed some kind of “gaffe” by criticizing the government’s weak-kneed response.

As Obama’s dithering threatened to ignite a world war, a significant percentage of mainstream news outlets blared headlines like ROMNEY GAFFE DERAILS REPUBLICAN HOPES and ROMNEY WON’T BACK DOWN FROM FALSE CLAIM. Of course neither of these headlines (nor countless similar headlines over the past two days) was factually true: The only thing that transformed Romney’s rather mild criticism into a “gaffe” was that the media itself declared it to be so.

The MSM knows full well it manipulates The Narrative, and invariably does so to the benefit of Obama, the Democrats, and “progressivism” in general. And people like you and I know this full well too. But until now the media has at least feigned impartiality, not to trick us but in order to maintain credibility and influence over the Honey Boo Boos.

You’ll have to read the rest of it to see who the Honey Boo Boos are, and she’s absolutely right that unless we are as willing to get in the other side’s faces as much as they do ours we’ll never win the argument nor get the truth heard.

Number Six- That Would Be the Sin of Envy

Bill Whittle’s latest Firewall Video deals with number six on the list of seven deadly sins, envy, and how the left uses it to promote class warfare. I had a few things to say about envy myself a few years back, as well as envy’s kissing-cousin, greed. You can read that here but meanwhile, here’s Bill:

A Difference in Outlook–Romney versus Obama

Theodore Dalrymple nails it":

“….one is focused on creating tomorrow’s prosperity while the other is focused on redistributing today’s.”

Guess which one is which.

Media Madness, and the Reckoning – Clarice Feldman at American Thinker

Clarice Feldman has a great round up over at American Thinker about reactions to the shameful, but not unexpected, performance of the MSM during last week’s Republican National Convention.  It isn’t just the outright falsehoods they peddle but the numerous sins of omission they commit when telling the whole story doesn’t advance The Narrative.

A prime example is the failure to cover speeches by minority speakers such as Mia Love, Republican candidate for Congress from Utah, Former Democratic representative Artur Davis, who actually seconded the motion to nominate Barack Obama at the 2008 DNC convention, Ted Cruz, Hispanic candidate for one of Texas’ Senate seats or Jane  Edmonds, the liberal democrat former Massachusetts Secretary for Workforce Development under Mitt Romney when he was Governor of Massachusetts. These inspiring people and others put the lie to the Left’s portrayal of Republicans in general and Mitt Romney in particular as racist, misogynistic bigots, so they were essentially air-brushed out of the convention.  

Go and read Clarice’s post and when you’re done, here are just a few of the speeches the MSM doesn’t want you to see:

Mia Love

Artur Davis

(related: Artur Davis: I know my speech was a success because MSNBC blacked it out.)

Jane Edmonds
