Pause of Death?

It seemed to start with little things: not reporting that Obama was a smoker, refusing to mention his middle name, refusing to mention he grew up in a Muslim country, refusing to report his campaign promise of skyrocketing electricity prices, then they attacked Joe the Plumber for daring to ask Obama a question that unmasked their chosen candidate as a Marxist, bought a house from crooked realtor and slum lord Tony Rezko in a sweetheart deal, they downplayed his 20-year membership in a hate church, poo-poohed his friendship and working relationship with terrorist Bill Ayers and his terrorist wife. The Obamas even spoke against the American dream, calling it "Middle-Classism".

He was never vetted during the campaign, the media even chose not to report certain things and even attacked and maligned anyone who dared question him. (remember Joe the Plumber) Since getting in the White House Obama has literally given away a trillion dollars to friends and allies (so-called "stimulus") and expects to get a billion dollars back for his campaign coffers. This is probably the biggest crime in history and its apparently not newsworthy. His administration has given guns to Mexican druglords, people have literally died-including Americans from those very guns. His "Obamacare" threatens to bankrupt the country while rationing out less but ever-more expensive healthcare to the people. He decries those who "don't pay their fair share" while his top corporate allies, like GE, pay no taxes at all. He decries CEO's "excessive salaries" while ignoring the salaries of top union officials, and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac who walked away with millions as those institutions crashed to the ground and demanded bailouts.

But hey if a Republican pauses for 20 seconds to think about a question from a hostile reporter, that must be condemned as the end of his campaign.

This is not about Herman Cain. Any Republican will be treated the same way.

Last week the candidates had a 2-hour debate and the only thing the media reported was Rick Perry momentarily forgetting something. They never reported ANYTHING else about the debate, no substance, no issues. No, it was nothing more than reports of Perrys' "gaffe" as if no-one else on Earth ever forgot anything before.

The MSM will focus on phony things to avoid discussing real issues. Meanwhile studiously avoiding any scandals involving Obama and trying to make him look more Presidential compared to reporting nothing but Republican "gaffes". That is how the 2012 campaign will be covered.

Headlines without a story

Forget this, we're still waiting for any kind of story to be attached to one of the headlines. The Politico website alone has had more than 90 articles on the "Cain scandal" (10,000+ Google returns) and yet refuses to inform its readers exactly what was "scandalous". Are we supposed to just take the media's word that something terrible, horrible no-good happened to an unnamed woman because they said so?

Forget that. The time for trusting the media is long past. The MSM is nothing less than the propaganda arm of the vast leftwing conspiracy and it is joined at the hip to the Democrat Party. It has led the top of the news, even local newscasts across the country for more than a week now and yet nobody knows what exactly Herman Cain is being accused of doing.

Is this what passes for journalism?

At one point, after a few thousand headlines and news reports, the media informs us that the woman demands that the confideniality clause be waived so she can 'tell her side of the story". As if this whole onslaught has come solely from Herman Cain's side of the story. Well the National Restaurant Association has agreed to waive the confidentiality clause but the anonymous accuser has changed her mind apparently. Heck, tell us what happened in a text message and leave the name out, something.

How many thousands of breathless reports on this "scandal" can there be without the scandal? I guess only time will tell.

Meanwhile the liberal propaganda machine is getting a bit upset that it hasn't had the impact they had hoped. Herman Cain's polling numbers and fundraising has increased. The Washington Post published a bitter, satirical article which underscores how upset they are that this has not sunk the Cain campaign.

This is the same media that pretty much ignores every Democrat sex scandal from Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Ted Kennedy & Chris Dodd and Barney Frank and on into infinity.

The longer it takes to actually put a story with these 10,000+ of headlines (not to mention TV reports), the more it looks like there isn't a story. The MSM will now move on to report on how Republicans don't to seem to care about it. You might notice the lack of details doesn't bother the reporters and press, it just allows them to make everything up. It's a blank canvas they can propagandize on to their audiences. They'd rather not have to report the overblown details because then this story would end. Can't have that.
