America, You Asked For It!

Hypocrisy in the Obamedia

Obamedia*–the highly liberally biased Mainstream Media (MSM) whose fascination with (adoration of?) President-elect Barack Hussein Obama suffocates all traces of objectivity in reporting the accomplishments, struggles, whereabouts, activities, vices, etc. of the President-elect. This group of supposedly detached professionals is also easily identified by its hatred and vitriolic rhetoric regarding any conservative person or ideal, especially President Bush.

*I first saw this term in Michelle Malkin’s column discussing/disclosing the obvious bias in the reporting of the workout habits of President Bush vs. President-elect Barack Hussein Obama.  The above definition is my own and Ms. Malkin may define it differently.

Here are a couple of teaser excerpts for her exceptional column:

And when Obama feels better, the skies will part, the sun will shine (in moderate, environmentally-correct, non-global warming-inducing amounts, of course) and peace will reign worldwide!

and

Fit Republican president = Selfish, indulgent, creepy fascist.

Fit Democratic president = Disciplined, health-conscious Adonis role model.

Now, you might be wondering about my obvious bias in the other direction.

Please note the subtitle of this site. My intention is to mislead no one while serving as a counterbalance to the constant barrage of left-wing propaganda disbursed by the MSM on a daily basis.

In that spirit, I can’t help but notice how left-wing reporters enamored with Obama can write starry-eyed essays describing his workout habits and the benefits Americans will receive from their in-tip-top-shape new President, but evidently forget the nasty little unhealthy habit that receives virtually no attention from the MSM–smoking.

You remember smoking. The killer of men, women, children, dogs, cats, hamsters, flowers, bees, trees, pigs, goats, chickens, and any other harmless, innocent creature that engenders sympathy in a majority of voters in America.

Didn’t President Clinton attack and encourage attacks by others on the evil tobacco companies in an effort to rid the world of all evil? Didn’t our government increase taxes that more than doubled the price of cigarettes because they caused all the problems in America? Hasn’t smoking been banned in public buildings, many public places, even U.S. Navy ships because it’s so detrimental to the health of the American people?

For all the evils credited to smoking by the Democrats, our President-elect’s habit of lighting up doesn’t even deserve a mention in an article describing his healthy lifestyle.

If you ever had any doubt about the objectivity of the MSM, or if you ever thought it leaned conservative, this should definitely convince you otherwise.
