I don’t approve of pelting anyone with anything — but really, can you blame a McCain crowd for showing contempt for a MSM “newsman”? If MSM wants to be treated as impartial arbiter, a “watchdog” and not a lapdog of one candidate, its members should consider some behavior modification.
Demand not just medical records but earmark records from Joe Biden. Ask Barack Obama why he served on the Woods Fund with Bill Ayers for years and if he specifically approved grants to ACORN and a host of leftwing groups. Do a 3000-word piece on Obama’s earmarks and ties to corrupt Chicago officials to counterbalance the dozens of 3000-word pieces going after the other side (e.g. “Palin annoys Wasilla librarian” and “Cindy McCain was addicted to pain killers”).
Even more shocking, not a single one of the networks news outlet or mainstream national newspaper has looked at Obama’s unprecedented attempt to use the Justice Department to chill speech. In all the pieces on “temperament” no one has reminded voters that the last president to try to employ law enforcement officials — as Obama did in Missouri — to go after opponents exercising First Amendment rights was Richard Nixon, not exactly the model of presidential temperament.
No one is suggesting these should be the only topics explored by the media, but the fact that none of them has been leaves one to conclude that the MSM has chosen sides. They are no longer covering the campaign, they are bolstering one side and making news judgments which invariably aid one side over the other. That, at the very least, deserves some cat calls.
