Reporters joining TEAM OBAMA...to HELL with bias, huh? Finally, conservatives are proven right.

This is an amazing adjunct to my post below, which I hope you all read (no, I don't HOPE, I insist, because Americans MUST KNOW THIS INFORMATION)
 
RECORD 19 REPORTERS, MEDIA EXECS JOIN 'TEAM OBAMA'.......(the sentence at the end is even more 'choice' than this one)

February 17, 2012 12:52pm, byPaul Bedard

For some Washington reporters and media execs, cheering their team from the sidelines just isn’t good enough: Tugging on a red, white and blue Team Obama jersey is the answer.
That’s the case for a whopping 19 journalists and media executives, including five from the Washington Post and three each from ABC and CNN, who’ve gone into the administration or center-left groups supporting the president.
Those inside the administration hit 14 this month when the Post’s Stephen Barr joined the Labor Department. That’s a record, say some revolving door watchers, and could even be much higher: The Post reports that “dozens” of former journalists have joined the administration, although Washington Secrets couldn’t verify that tally.

Many are in communications and speech writing offices, most prominently Jay Carney, the president’s spokesman who ran Time’s Washington bureau, and husband to ABC’s Claire Shipman. Some joined as the news business collapsed, many to finally voice their politics, and others, notably former Transportation spokeswoman Jill Zuckman, because she liked her future boss, Secretary Ray LaHood, a rare Republican in the administration. That relationship rocked: LaHood broke through the lower-tier Cabinet P.R. ceiling to become one of the most well-known Transportation secretaries ever. She had worked for the Chicago Tribune.

The revolving door isn’t a surprise to critics of the media and Obama. “The number of reporters going into the Obama administration merely confirms what I knew and what most conservatives long believed,” said Noam Neusner, himself one of the few reporters hired as a Bush speech writer. “There is a vast supply of liberals in newsrooms, they are very happy to support Obama administration policies if they can get hired and they barely hide their ideology in the way they cover the news.” Neusner, who I worked with at U.S. News, said that he too might have been guilty of a pro-Bush bias, but said correctly: “My editors and colleagues were surprised to hear that I was a Republican.”

A former GOP Capitol Hill and cabinet spokesman added, “It’s frustrating to see so many reporters that had relationships with trusted sources give up their ‘impartiality’ and start playing for the other side. It does show that the game is stacked in favor of the other side when most reporters still working in their profession remain silent.”

Stephen Hess, a presidential and journalism scholar at the Brookings Institution, said reporters can be “conflicted” when they trade places. “On the other hand,” he added,
“reporters going back to journalism after a stint in government are always better reporters in that they now understand how government really works.” (end of article)
 
Yup, now reporters know how government really works and they like it and aren't ashamed of it. Ideological whores$$. Can they have any credibility now or in their future careers unless they create the socialist, leftwing world they seem so desirous of, the one where freedom and hope and opportunity are GONE? I'm hoping for some remarks from my lib commenters who will still insist the media's not left "because of FOX" :-) Poor America.

We are living in an Orwellian world.

SF..excellent observation.

AOW......it's almost breath taking by this time, isn't it.

By the way, folks; YOU THINK CNN WILL COVER THIS? MSNBC? LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS; I'LL BE FLICKING BACK/FORTH WHEN I'M WATCHING TV TO SEE IF THEY DO.
LET ME KNOW IF ANYBODY SEES IT. I'D SAY IT'S A PRETTY IMPORTANT STORY BUT THOSE WHO DON'T SEE THE NOSE IN FRONT OF THEIR FACES WILL ASK US TO 'MOVE ON...' :-)

Sad that these reporters are so biased and can't tell truth from fiction any longer.

If there was one thing I learned in journalism class was to report the news and leave my personal opinion out. It was up to the readers to decide.

Darn MSM.

Is this Paul Bedard the ironman and gator wrestler or another Paul Bedard?

"Is this Paul Bedard the ironman and gator wrestler"

No it's Paul Bedard Duck Hunter.

Z said...

Lisa, let it go.
That's what lefties do when they're befuddled by a truth they hate.

This is so damning and it'll get no news coverage...and this is supposedly America?

Always On Watch said...

Z,
Check out this graphic. It goes very well with your post.

Z said...

AOW, that's perfect!
I tried to post it but each time I did, all my posts below it disappeared...that's a new one!

Absolutely fantastic image for my posts; darn!
I appreciate your going to the trouble of linking it.xx

Let me get this straight, media figures don't join right wing administrations?

Rupert Murdoch isn't working his vulgar tricks at all times?

James O'Keefe wouldn't be peddling his edited videos as factual (fortunately he and Breitbart are finished).

Fact is that reportage is in the toilet in America but once again it's hardly a left/right thing. Reporting has become entertainment. Glenn Beck is considered responsible reporting.

It's true, the Nation is hungry for responsible reporting but you better go out and look for it yourself because popular radio and TV is peddling drivel that makes you stupid.

Yep, It's been the Democrat media for a good while.

Santorum, when asked by Charlie somebody (same Charlie that did the hit job on Palin) about a poor joke told by one of his contributors, said -
This man just gives my campaign money, why are you making an issue of it, when you didn't even ask obama about Rev Wright, who was his Spiritual Advisor for 20 Years"

Charlie the tool said, that was 2008, this is now. The truth is of course is That was a Democrat, You're a republican.

It's so obvious, I find it incredible anyone even questions whether the media is in the tank for the democrats. They are. 90%+ of all their campaign donations go republican. Who do does anyone think they're going to support.

To Sarah Palin: What's the Square... Root... of PI?

to oblabber: What's your favorite color?

Hey Duck. - Brrrrrrrrriiiightbart is just getting Warmed Up ! (ala Pacino in Scent of a Woman) LOL.

Media bias?

Ducky, why don't you get it straight..do the math.
Nobody EVER here has said there isn't conservative news on radio or TV.
Do the comparison: Watch an hour of FOX vs CNN and tell me how much of both sides they have in comparison. Good luck finding a COnservative on CNN other than those who are weak in their articulation.

YOu didn't want to hear Beck so you didn't believe Beck...typical; don't look into anything, just kill the messenger.

THAT is what's killing our media in this country and I'd LOVE to think it's both sides but the HUGE majority of nasty, insulting inferences, and all through TV and FILMS and every other type of brainwashing (not to leave out schools) is LEFTWING and if you don't see that, you're more ideological than even I THOUGHT.

And don't call ANYBODY STUPID HERE, Ducky...EVER.


Kid, when lefties can't see the truth like that in this article, and constantly go off on a tangent because they DO see it but can't fess up to it, that's a scary situation.
Ya, square root of pi vs favorite color..excellent comparison.

See my latest post, and then wait for the talking heads this weekend respond. Or maybe next week.

They Say......everyone ought to check out that post; it's VERY provocative and there's a LOT of truth in there.

Just crazy isn't it, but this goes a long way to explain the pits the western world is in now.

Most people get their information from the MSM and make their decisions based on this. So when the source is so tainted, so are the decisions we make when it's time to have our say.

Now that you know basically what is involved in building your own solar water heater, all you need is more information to know exactly what materials to purchase and how to assemble it all to provide an effective & safe hot water heating system. Christians, well we're misunderstood. A Holmes humidifier filter is among the best filters available these days. Depending on the model, there may be one pump that works to bring in the clean water and then to send out the dirty water, or there may be separate pumps for each of these functions.
