If you have tickets for the Democratic National Convention and wanted to see President Barack Obama deliver his acceptance speech this Thursday at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium, you’ll be greatly disappointed. Despite the official excuse of severe weather -- forecasters put the chance of storms at 20-30 percent -- the change in venue really seems to be because Obama campaign officials fear they can't fill the 74,000-seat stadium.
Reporting that, of course, is unfathomable for the lapdog broadcast media, but some print and online reporters are skeptical.
Ginni Thomas of The Daily Caller sat down last week with L. Brent Bozell, Founder and President of the Media Research Center, to discuss a wide variety of issues ranging from media bias to the future of the conservative movement. Bozell asserted that the most under-reported story this year will be the degree in which the media will not report news.
He explained, "There is a narrative that is evolving out there which is if the story helps Barack Obama re-election, it's news. If it doesn't, it's not news, you've seen story after story after story that has been completely spiked, on purpose, by the media."
As athletically as Rep. Anthony Weiner is bumbling on his Twitter scandal, so the leftists at the Daily Kos are pushing the unsubstantiated spin that Weiner is being smeared by...Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his Tea Party activist wife. (Or their backers.) Weiner’s insisted Thomas disclose his wife’s financials in an attempt to insist he should recuse himself on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. On Wednesday morning the Kosmonaut known as “Stranded Wind” was upset anyone would cover this:
CNN has disingenuously ‘covered’ the story, which is to say they smeared right wing bull---t all over Congressman Weiner, probably motivated by a combination of the beating the GOP took in New York 26 and Weiner's unflinching handling of the crimes of Clarence Thomas.
ABC trumpeted a new poll on Tuesday as proof that conservatives and Republicans could be losing ground in the midterm election. Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos excitedly opened the show by speculating, "This morning, is the Tea Party losing traction? Our new poll says the answer may be yesas the movement's most famous candidate releases this ad."
The morning show then replayed candidate Christine O'Donnell's new campaign spot. A graphic deemed the ad, in which O'Donnell asserts, "I'm not a witch," to be "stunning." The Tea Party's most famous candidate? Stephanopoulos' phrasing was somewhat odd.
Yes, Sarah Palin is not currently running for anything, but she's clearly the Tea Party's most famous member and is more well known than O'Donnell.
