All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Mainstream Media's Sin of Ommission

Nothing could be more offensive than an obvious sin of omission that is designed to achieve a deceitful result. The omission in this case is that Obama made his "citizen of the world speech" in Berlin during the break of a free concert featuring more than one of Germany's most popular bands. Any comparison between the soaring rhetoric of Kennedy or Reagan and Obama in Berlin is purely fictional. The result is that Americans are lead to believe by the mainstreamers that this was some great moment of triumph by the young and audacious Barack, when in fact it was the bands and the music that drew most of the audience. The Obama Campaign took advantage by making an appearence, which was not appreciated by all including German Chancellor Angela Merkal. To an American watching the video of the event it's clear that most of the audience is just standing or sitting and not cheering or clapping. However the actual video has not been shown that much these past few days except the sections that have American flags and sign written in English. It seemed to matter to no one. It wasn't mentioned in The New Times Op-ed section. They apparently missed it on Fox News Sunday, Meet the Press, This Week, Face the Nation, Chris Matthews, the McLaughlin Group, Late Edition or Like It Is. A few people mentioned it late last week after I wrote about it. I won’t mention who because they are already famous enough. The reason I wrote about it is because I am incensed by the idea that America has become so cynical that we permit people to sell the Presidency the way companies sell new cars. Obama is a public relations creation. He is scripted to the letter. He is the ultimate pitch man. There is no doubt he is talented, intelligent, handsome, athletic and compassionate. He is the perfect blend of all the best personality traits wrapped up in one person. He embodies the evolution of a human being. We should be in awe of his perfection and absolution and elect him President so he can help us feel better about ourselves and our country. The mainstream media is desperately trying to convince those tuned into their frequencies that the race is over. It is a Democratic year and not only will Obama be President, but the Congress will have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and almost two-thirds in the House. Obama and the Democrats will be unstoppable. With their new found power they will do all the things they have been promising for years. Americans, provided they are not too rich, will have cradle to grave care provided by the Federal government. There are some detractors from this theory, but they are few and far between. Most of the mainstream media’s editorial and pundit personalities are all in conjunction because most them vote for and financially support the Democratic Party. For them the election is already over and the vote is just a formality to make their dream a reality. They will be fooled again.
