My wife has always watched the national broadcast news shows. In the last year, she finally has come to pick up on the bias.

She turns to me during this segment of Pelly's interview and says, "we can't watch CBS anymore."

Yes!

I flip over to catch Krauthammer on the Panel calling out the press for failing to connect Obama's policies to the unravelling of the mideast, quite similar to L.A.'s German link.
Smart woman.

So now German newspapaers are the gospel? Who is David Gordon Smith and when is the last time you quoted something he wrote?

Strawman argument. No one said the German newspapers were gospel. No one said David Smith was all-knowing.

It is interesting the article was actually a compilation of at least 7 different sources, supposely from different politcal leanings, not one man's opinion.

Attack the author? How about pick apart his opinion, which is all it was, albeit spot on.

I'm gonna go WAYYYYY out on a limb and guess that you didn't bother reading the link. If you had you'd notice three are MULTIPILE sources cited in the article.

As to your question, are German newspapers gospel? No. But add these 7 or so German papers to the British newspaper and the Israeli newspaper who are all saying pertty much the same thing and you just might have a story there. One that our own American newspapers would check into if they weren't so preoccupied with trying to shield the Obama administration from criticism.

"One thing is clear: If jihadists believe they can attack American installations and kill an ambassador on the anniversary of Sept. 11, then America's deterrent power has declined considerably. For a superpower, it is not enough just to want to be loved. You have to scare the bad guys to keep them in check."

There it is.

Are you sure you mean 5th column? I thought it was 4th estate.

5th column is more like a group of saboteurs working to clandestinely undermine a nation.

Actually, maybe 5th column is more appropriate...

you could not be more wrong pal.

the MSM/press is always referred to as the 4th branch.

quote:

In the American political system, the fourth branch of government refers to a group that influences the three branches of governance defined in the American Constitution (legislative, judicial, and executive). Such groups can include the press (an analogy for the Fourth Estate), the people, and interest groups. U.S. independent administrative government agencies, while technically part of the executive branch (or, in a few cases, the legislative branch) of government, are sometimes referred to as being part of the fourth branch.



LINK


A fifth column is a group of people who clandestinely undermine a larger group, such as a nation, from within. A fifth column can be a group of secret sympathizers of an enemy that are involved in sabotage within military defense lines, or a country's borders.




origins? right here.

Why is the msm so scared to put the blame on Obama?


It's not fear. The MSM won't bash Obama because the MSM is an appendage of the Democrat Party. Take George Stephanopolous, for example. He's now, what, a leading talking head for ABC News? Well, he was once Bill Clinton's talking head.

It's an incestuous relationship between the MSM and the Democrat Party. Bill Moyers, the Guru Genius of NPR? He was a loyal staffer of Lyndon Baines Johnson.

These MSM characters spend their entire careers working for media or a Democrat administration. They enjoy a very comfy "inside the beltway" lifestyle by being loyal propaganda outlets of the Democrat Party.

They won't bash Obama because they are in the same SYNDICATE as Obama. Getting Obama re elected will put money in their pockets and enhance their own personal prestige inside the beltway.

America's policy toward the ME has always been haphazard at best. If Romney gets in he'll flounder about like every other president since WWII.

Care to support your conclusory statement with any facts, analysis or anything approaching intellectual discourse?

Or are we, as always, obliged to accept your word as fact because you live in the "Jim Rockford Ipse Dixit Jurisdiction" ?

Stalking me tonight, eh? Are you some kind of weirdo, are just bored? It was a statement of opinion, just like most of the other posts here. Don't like it? Come up with your own.

And congratulations on picking up a scrap of Latin somewhere along the way. I'm impressed.

I'm merely pointing out to the board that logical analysis is not in your wheelhouse.

You are entitled to your opinion, no matter how wrong it is.

I have challenged most of the Democrat Party supporters on this board to support their views and opinions with evidence, facts and logical conclusions derived therefrom. None have ever answered the challenge, because such an intellectual exercise is alien to them.

The reason why the Obama-bots suck at reasoned debate is because they don't have the necessary gray matter. They are good at lies, propaganda and Alinsky-ite tactics, however.
