Obama’s Media Darlings to Follow Him on Trip
Posted by Ryan on July 18, 2008
As if there was any doubt about the MSM’s Big Three network’s bias towards Barack Obama, this removes all suggestion to the contrary. Charlie Gibson, Brian Williams, and Katie Couric are all going along on the trip! John McCain’s been to Iraq three times since campaigning began last year (that sound you hear is crickets), and eight times total since the war began. The MSM isn’t even trying to hide the bias anymore!
Yet, Obama hasn’t been to Iraq since January 2006 and has never visited the “real war” in Afghanistan, so all Big Three anchors will follow their clinically narcissistic and vain Good Shepherd around Europe and the Mideast, drooling, fawning, basking. I guess that it should be big news that Obama was guilted and cornered into taking this trip… by John McCain of all people! No mention of that in front of the Savior. In fact, some in the MSM are blaming the McCain camp for making this a bigger story than it otherwise would have been! So, McCain controls the media now? Hmm.
This trip will strain one’s objective credulity worse than Greta Van Susteran’s hanging out in Aruba for months looking for Natalee Holloway — what a hard assignment that must have been: very few breaks in the story but lots and lots of sunshine! It’ll be like watching the Big Three have spontaneous orgasms every night on TV, as they swoon over their chosen savior. Get your V-Chips ready! Good thing I don’t watch those networks. I honestly don’t know anyone under 50 who does watch them more than once a week. I’ll hear what’s going on when Brit Hume lets me know.
What makes this whole affair worse is that Obama’s trip to Europe, Iraq and Afghanistan will probably be paid for by the taxpayers since the trip is being billed as a “fact-finding mission.” Belonging to a Union I know what it feels like to have your money going to a campaign of someone you do not like and would never vote for. I hope people take notice of this: that, in the words of Rush fill-in Jed Babbin, the MSM has become a very large and very powerful “527” in Obama’s favor.
