Let me get something straight here. I'm not with Limbaugh. I don't hope Obama fails. Why in the hell would I hope that? From the beginning, the only real beef (a big beef) I've had with Obama has been with his views on abortion. I don't hate Obama. I actually like the guy. I think he's a good family man and he's got integrity. Yes, he's a politician. And because of that he's probably part-scumbag, but as scumbags go, he's pretty squeaky clean.
My biggest problem, through this WHOLE election, and even now, has been with the stinking, slobbering, Obiased media. And my reasons are good. They have betrayed us. Just as Richard Nixon betrayed his country by lying and cheating, the Press has left their CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED rights at the door in exchange for an Obamopiate, a love potion number 9.
They really, really screwed this up. The media's job is to keep the politicians in line. It is their job to provide UNBIASED reporting to the American people. From the beginning of the campaign, they not only fell in love with Obama, but they fell in love with the moment. Now, they have lost a very valuable thing: trust. I can no longer turn on NBC and trust that they will be providing me with an unbiased report. They now have to cover their asses. They played a MAJOR role in turning Obama into the rockstar that he is and now they have to protect that. They are accountable. They are now responsible if Obama's "progressive taxation" policies (i.e. socialist) do not work. They have stepped into a realm that was not theirs to step into. I'm sorry, I know it is an emotional time. But save your tears for the bar after you report the dadgum news.
And now they are in a pickle. The burden of any possible failure is partially on their shoulders now. I honestly feel that the ENTIRE NBC staff should be fired. I'm serious. I'm not talking about MSNBC or FOX here. I'm talking about the non-"opinion"-columnists. I'm talking about the "Journalists."
Because right now, journalism is dead.
(p.s., I'm sorry folks for the continued ranting here about the media. What can I say? I'm half-Irish.)
