Media: Priority News

While mainstream Obama media focuses on Republican congressional members skinny dipping in the ocean late at night in Israel – real news is being ignored.
As the Hoover Institution’s Peter Schweitzer documented recently, members of Obama’s campaign finance committee, his campaign bundlers and major Democratic donors received $16.4 billion of the $20.5 billion in loans and grants doled out under ‘green stimulus’ programs run by Obama’s Energy Department. This is crony corruption, pure and simple. As we’ve said before in many different contexts, it’s impossible to imagine a Republican administration or Congress having so many conflicts of interest, payoffs and out-and-out examples of crony capitalism without a steady drumbeat of indignant stories in the media followed by a massive government investigation. You have to have priorities, we guess. At least the FBI is looking into a real scandal: the rumor that Republican politicians went skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee on a trip to Israel last year. We hope they get to the bottom of that, so to speak, soon.” —Investor’s Business Daily
I guess, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC and others know their priorities in delivering informative news … they wouldn’t dare provide negative information in election year for a Democrat.
We must put an end to the arrogance of a federal establishment, which accepts no blame for our condition, cannot be relied upon to give us a fair estimate of our situation and utterly refuses to live within its means. … We must force the entire federal bureaucracy to live in the real world of reduced spending, streamlined function and accountability to the people it serves. —Ronald Reagan

What the Washington Post and their brothers and sisters in the dinosaur media really want when they make calls for ‘bipartisanship’ and ‘a softer tone’ is not for Democrats to move from the left to the center, but for Republicans, and Republicans only, to move toward the left. … Politics is indeed the art of the possible, and quid-pro-quo concessions are part of what makes a democracy work. But to demand it of the right side of the aisle while giving the left a pass in not ‘concessions,’ but rather a demand for a full-scale abandonment of principle. … Personally, I’d be more than happy to see the two parties working together. And in fact, when both parties honored the basic principles on which this nation was founded, America benefited. … Where there are Democrats prepared to be ‘moderate’ and work for fiscal sanity, the sanctity of private property, freedom of choice in other areas besides killing babies, the full use of America’s energy resources, the downsizing of government and a strong national defense … I welcome them and their ideas as part of the solution. In the absence of that, they’re merely part of the problem, and I couldn’t care less about ‘bipartisanship’ that involves them. –columnist Rob Miller
