The mainstream media in this country has stopped doing it’s job–basic journalism. Instead of reporting the truth, they’ve become onscreen personalities serving the function of stenographers. That’s why Chuck Todd from MSNBC was able to say what he did on Wednesday with a straight face.
During a segment on “Morning Joe,” former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (D) speculated that most opponents of the Affordable Care Act have been fed erroneous information about the law. Todd said that Republicans “have successfully messaged against it” but he disagrees with those who argue that the media should educate the public on the law. According to Todd, that’s President Barack Obama’s job.
“But more importantly, it would be stuff that Republicans have successfully messaged against it,” Todd told Rendell. “They don’t repeat the other stuff because they haven’t even heard the Democratic message. What I always love is people say, ‘Well, it’s you folks’ fault in the media.’ No, it’s the President of the United States’ fault for not selling it.”
Obama: The world is round.
GOP: The world is flat.
Media: Opinions Differ on Shape of World.
Fox: Democrats Lying About Shape of World?
O’Reilly: Dems lie about shape of world to promote far-left agenda.
Malkin: Liberals spew hate at Americans for disagreeing with Obama on shape of world.
Ron Paul libertarian: Let free market decide shape of world.
Far-left liberal: Obama not doing enough to make world more round.
Tea Party: Round world = socialism.
Chuck Todd: Not our job to report that world is, in, fact round; Dems’ fault for failing to convince public of world’s roundness.
In summary, major so-called journalists believing and acting based on this horseshite means this country is totally screwed.
