Whatever It Takes- Part 2

Between now and November, there will be literally hundreds if not thousands of blogs, online articles, and television stories about how the mainstream media is Barack Obama's biggest cheerleaders. How they will go to any lengths, skew any report, edit any video tape, all in the hopes that after the election, they can slap each other on the back, and tell each other how instrumental they were in, God(dess) forbid, getting Obama re-elected.
  I think I can safely speak for a lot of us who might be classified as "new media", bloggers, broadcasters, online reporters, when I say that we have some questions. Our questions go something like this: Is there a point when it is too much? Is there still a line that cannot be crossed? Has that line permanently disappeared in the age of Obama? When do even the most hardcore leftists scratch their pointy heads and ask, "Hey Dude, are journalists supposed to do that?"
  Anyone who has seen the hopeless video hatchet job done on Mitt Romney today by Andrea Mitchell on every one's favorite tingly network MSNBC, or Lawrence O'Donnell, who is not a Doctor, but apparently plays one on TV, questioning how Ann Romney treats her MS by riding horses, knows full well that this is only the warm-up.
  We have all been treated to such things as "journalists", and I will use that term loosely throughout, giggling happily as a reporter threw a shoe at former President George W. Bush, and what amounted to making fun of Sarah Palin's son Trigg, who has Down's Syndrome.
  What was on display today was nothing less than journalistic malpractice. Certainly, Andrea Mitchell was well aware that her staff had cut at least two minutes of tape to reach the desired result. And if she wasn't, is that not also extreme journalistic negligence? The final product took Gov. Romney completely out of context and made him look foolish and out of touch with the American People. But isn't that the objective nowadays anyway?
  Lawrence O'Donnell did not "want to make light" of Ann Romney's condition, but isn't the sport of dressage "wildly expensive", something that not every MS patient can afford? Make no mistake. If they are starting in on Ann Romney's condition now, wait until a week before the election, and polls show that Romney is ahead in key battleground states by more than the margin of error. It kind of makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up to imagine what these people will not have a problem engaging in.
  Many are calling for Andrea Mitchell to be suspended or fired. Don't hold your breath. In the world of mainstream media Liberals, this is a resume enhancement.

 A major announcement concerning The Conservative Cauldron coming in a few weeks!! Stay tuned!
