The next fours of Media Coverage of “The One” in a single glance.

The AP, which gave up objectivity a looong time ago has put out this humdinger of a “news” story. The headline alone shows you it is anything but news, it is a cheerleading rah rah story, “Obama breaks from Bush, avoids divisive stands.” The  AP points to things like the closing of Gitmo, which The One has decided to close. Wait….Gitmo is a highly divisive issue, so that must mean Obama didn’t take a stand right? WRONG, he ordered it closed…so how is that breaking from Bush? Well it means he took the opposite view, but taking an opposite view is not the same as avoiding a divisive stand.

Well lets look at the next issue…abortion. Obama reversed a policy of Bush that tied Federal Taxpayer money to foreign countries for relief to an order to not offer or discuss abortion. Again, taking the opposite view is NOT the same as avoiding the divisive issue. I am tempted to call the AP and pull an Inigo Montoya on them, “You keep using dat word…I dinna think it means what you think it means.” I wont even get into the rest of the rah rah stuff that is the “article.” It was bad enough I had to read it the first time, cutting and pasting the rest in could give my computer a headache. Read it for yourselves to see if I am right or wrong. Hint: I’m right.

    Obama has set new records for what a President Elect can accomplish between getting elected and his first week in office.

    But it is not what the Main Stream Media wants you to think.
