Lee Harvey Oswald was far-left defector to the Soviet Union, but you’d never know that from Sunday’s ABC This Week which focused on Dallas as a cauldron of segregationist hate for President Kennedy without any mention of the political orientation of the actual assassin. Using Dan Rather as his expert, ex-CBS and current ABC reporter Byron Pitts perpetuated the myth that right-wing hate was somehow responsible for what occurred in Dallas: “Nowhere in Texas did the jagged edge of segregation cut deeper, anti-Kennedy sentiment spew any stronger. This flyer [“Wanted for Treason”] greeted the President when he arrived.”
On Friday, NBC’s Today tried to cast President Obama’s Thursday press conference about the ObamaCare disaster in the most sympathetic light possible, with co-host Savannah leading off the show by proclaiming: “The humble president….President Obama does damage control on the botched health care rollout with his legacy hanging in the balance.” Introducing the segment moments later, Guthrie claimed the President was “falling on the sword over this health care rollout disaster.” In the report that followed, White House correspondent Peter Alexander emphasized Obama’s supposedly humility: “The President the first to admit that he has a lot of work ahead of him to regain the confidence of the American people….[he] was strikingly contrite.”
On the Thursday, November 14, PoliticsNation, MSNBC contributor Goldie Taylor asserted that Republicans who are pushing Attorney General Eric Holder’s impeachment are a “Bozo caucus” who are “fanning the flames of hatred and bigotry.” Taylor: “So what this is about is about fanning the flames of hatred and bigotry and pushing people to the polls on their behalf. And so the problem with that is it keeps your base incredibly small. And so the necessity of reaching out and broadening that base in order to win national elections, that gets lost in the mush. But I’m not sure that any of the people that belong to what I call the “Bozo caucus,” I’m not sure they really care about that.”
Major Garrett pointed out on Friday’s CBS This Morning that the politician’s Thursday “attempt to fix the problem of canceled insurance policies…fell flat”, as it failed to satisfy his Democratic allies in Congress, who are nervous about the next election. Garrett devoted much of his report on the morning newscast, as well on Thursday’s CBS Evening News, to his hard-hitting questioning of the politician, where he hounded the politician over the ObamaCare debacle.
Teasing an upcoming story on Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams warned of “the habitat of the polar bears melting earlier and faster than ever” and promised “a jaw-dropping look at a way of life quickly disappearing.” In the report that followed minutes later, chief environmental correspondent Anne Thompson kept up the global warming alarmism: “This 10-month-old polar bear cub practices his ice-breaking skills on the tundra….But Dr. Steve Amstrup, chief scientist of Polar Bears International, says the greenhouse gases we are putting into the atmosphere threaten the cub’s future.”
While NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd did question President Obama on the failed ObamaCare rollout during an exclusive interview on Thursday, the network political director tried to downplay the notion that the commander-in-chief actively lied in promoting the health care law: “‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.’ You said it a lot during the run-up. At this point, though, it’s obviously something – a promise that has not been able to be kept….What happened?” In his next question, Todd came close to accusing Obama of deception, but quickly equivocated: “Do you feel like you owe these folks an apology for misleading them? Even if you didn’t intentionally do it, but at this point, they feel misled. And you’ve seen the anger that’s out there.”
ABC and CBS on Thursday and Friday reacted to Barack Obama’s health care apology by acknowledging his “broken promise.” At the same time, both networks attempted to spin the NBC interview with qualifiers on the millions of Americans who will be losing their health insurance. After explaining what the President originally insisted and then showing his apology, CBS Evening News Anchor Scott Pelley justified, “The plans are being canceled because they don’t meet the minimum standards of the President’s health insurance law. That’s something that was always in the legislation.” Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos opened the program on Friday by announcing, “Broken promise. The President says he’s sorry.” Jon Karl noted that the apology is “for the millions of Americans who have received cancellation notices from their insurance companies, despite [Obama’s] repeated promise over and over again that nobody would lose their insurance.” However, he then shifted into spin mode.
Touting chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd’s exclusive interview with President Obama on Thursday, Nightly News anchor Brian Williams proclaimed: “We are all about to hear the President of the United States apologize, and not just for the troubled rollout of this new health care website, but for the fact that his promise to the American people that ‘If they like their current health insurance, they can keep it,’ has not held true for all.” In the report that followed, Todd sympathetically observed: “…the President’s apparent broken promise about folks keeping the plans they like has been weighing heavily on the entire White House. So it was a chastened commander-in-chief that I spoke with earlier today.”
On Thursday’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, MSNBC political analyst Joy Reid condescended to people angry about their health insurance policies being cancelled as she fretted that President Obama may have to “placate” the “three to five percent” of people who apparently are not intelligent enough to realize the insurance they like is merely “junk.” Reid: “It does sound, it’s very frighteningly going back to Congress to get more junk policies grandfathered in, just to placate the five, the three to five percent of people who are having insurance they have, so they like having it, left lawful, when that insurance is usually junk.”

Exhibit A on Friday night for how the news media are an impediment to any rational discussion of reining in federal spending. “The ax falls for more than 47 million Americans struggling to put food on the table as tonight time has run out,” NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams ominously and fatuously intoned Friday night, as if payments to them are about to be eliminated. Spending on the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), aka “food stamps,” will increase “over the next decade by 57 percent,” as the number of Americans on the program has doubled under Obama, yet NBC focused on the victims of “cuts.”
Appearing on Saturday’s NBC Today, MSNBC host Chris Matthews launched into a rant denouncing Republicans for daring to be critical of the disastrous ObamaCare rollout: “…one party has a health care plan, the other party does not have one. And the one that does not have a health care plan is least able to be critical….It doesn’t have the moral credibility to mock the one party and the one president who has succeeded.” Matthews implored President Obama: “He has to return it to the issue of morality and the fact that we owe our brothers and sisters health care…He can’t get involved in letting this be judged on whether it’s successfully rolled out or not, he has to make it back to the question, should we try to bring health care to people who don’t have it or not? And put his enemies on the defensive.”
On October 31 the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard reported the following: “The Internal Revenue Service shared highly confidential tax information of several Tea Party groups in the IRS scandal with the Federal Election Commission, a clear violation of federal law, according to newly obtained emails. The public watchdog group Judicial Watch told Secrets Thursday that it was former scandal boss Lois Lerner who shared the information on groups including the American Future Fund and the American Issues Project.’” So far none of the Big Three (ABC, NBC, CBS) networks have reported the latest IRS scandal finding.
Promoting his new book about the 2012 election, Double Down, with co-author Mark Halperin on Monday’s NBC Today, New York Magazine national affairs editor John Heilemann offered Obama campaign spin to excuse the President’s disastrous performance in the first debate against Mitt Romney: “…[Obama’s] disdain for Romney, his contempt for Romney, he couldn’t figure out how to deal with that. He would say, ‘What am I supposed to do when he starts spewing his BS?'” Heilemann laughably added that Obama also had “contempt for the theatricality of politics,” which, “all got mixed up together and he gave this horrible practice session performance that left them totally stymied about how they were going to fix it” before the second debate with Romney.
Monday’s CBS This Morning revealed how “a trusted Obama health care adviser warned the White House it was losing control of ObamaCare.” Major Garrett underlined that “the warnings were dire and specific, and ultimately ignored” by the Obama administration. Instead, they “relied on appointed bureaucrats and senior White House health care advisers” to implement the health care law. Garrett also pointed out how “the White House became secretive about the law’s complexity and regulatory reach” because they were apparently “fearful of constant attacks from congressional Republicans” over the controversial issue.
After offering sympathetic coverage to the disastrous roll-out of the ObamaCare website, ABC on Monday actually uncovered “new troubles” and alerted viewers to misleading comments by the White House. Near the top of Good Morning America on Monday, co-host George Stephanopoulos trumpeted, “ABC News has obtained copies of internal administration memos revealing for the first time that extensive hurdles to signing up for insurance are not limited to the website.” Reporter Jon Karl quoted from internal memos destroying the idea that signing up for ObamaCare by mail or phone is any easier. Karl quoted from one of the people working on fixing the website: “The paper applications allow people to feel like they’re moving forward…At the end of the day, we’re all stuck in the same queue.” According to the journalist, attempts to sign up with these alternate methods are simply “an effort to buy time.”
Ignorance is bliss some say…
Not reporting the news clearly and impartially…Is a coverup..
As in covering Buck Ofama’s ass!
Yeah then there is this so called news…Again not news, Covering Buck Ofama’s landmark ‘screw Americans’ bill…
More of the same…
Who is looney? Matthews is, has proven it, many times with his daily bullshit attacks on all things not Buck Ofama.
N (othing) B (ut) C (rap) …another Buck Ofama propaganda bullshit machine..
The good Lord wants one to love all things he created…But why did he create all the above assholes? To test us on a daily basis it seems..
That is surprising that one of Obama’s Public Relations Firms (All Barack Company) would put something like this out there.
Maybe the ‘thrill’ is diminishing…
Be nice if the lapdog media would go BACK to reporting and journalism…
