The Media does it again.

So yesterday there was a large rally in DC protesting Obama’s healthcare reform plan, Obama’s out of control Liberals friends in Congress, and all of the Dem’s spending habits. How many showed up is still being debated but it was big and its part of the Tea Party protests going on since earlier this year.

The media has, since the beginning of the protests, done everything they can to oppose the protests. From making fun of the protesters to vilifying them. One repeated charge has been the media’s claim that the people [rptesting are all right-wingers who hate Obama so much that they have made posters of Obama with a Hitler mustache. The signs the Media showed months ago were actually from the Lyndon LaRouche PAC, which is a far left group. The signs they showed were easily identifiable as being from the LaRouche PAC because it said so on the posters, but the Media had no interest in telling the actual facts they were more interested in slandering the protesters as evil racist hateful right-wingers.

Last night the AP put out a story about the latest protest in DC and not only did it trot out the usual picture it again failed to distinguish the LaRouche protesters from the actual protesters.

Here is the Pic they included in the side bar of the story:
Taxpayer Rally

The pic clearly shows larouchepac.org on the poster but that is not mentioned in the story itself, instead it makes it seem as though larouchepac.org is on the same side as the protesters, but the fact is the LaRouche people are only protesting that Obama does not go far enough. They want a single-payer system which is what Obama wants as well but knows he can’t get it right away. This would be an important fact, I would think, yet the AP fails to mention it.

The Media has been letting many facts slide lately, from their refusing to delve into the Edwards affair during the Democratic Primaries to more recently completely ignoring the story of Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones till AFTER he had resigned to ignoring all of ACORN’s many illegal activities to its continued slanted reporting on the opposition to Obama’s policies, the Media has abdicated its role as objective news reporters.

If the Media cannot or will not do its job then they deserve to fail and go out of business and many news outlets are suffering greatly. Newspapers are going out of business due to poor circulation (I will admit that the advent of online advertising hasn’t helped the papers either since that is most of their revenue but circulation is down as well), the New York Times is in serious danger (good riddance), the ratings of the major networks news at 6 pm are dropping like stones and even cable news outlets like CNN and MSNBC are being pummeled by the dreaded evil Fox News (the left’s bogeyman).

So be it. The Media did all it could to get Obama elected and they are continuing to fight alongside him as a propaganda army. The problem for the Media is that people are realizing that the Media is no longer objective fact-givers. I wonder how long it will be before Obama says we need to bailout the NYT and other Media outlets favorable to him. For all of the Left’s supposed belief in evolution, they sure don’t seem to understand it.

Darwinism is a bitch, but its a bitch I love to see in action.
