Victor Davis Hanson offers three current examples of the hypocrisy and arrogance and cronyism which causes We the People to loathe the government and the political establishment which colludes with it against us.
Alicia Colon lets loose on our lying, stinking media and what passes for journalism today. As she demonstrates with a brief recap of some of its most epic fails, the media has earned much more than our mere disapproval.
The Constitution gave us a free press for our information and protection. It is shameful that a huge percentage of it not only fails, but refuses to do the job for which it was granted such power. It now falls to private groups to do that job.
Coincidentally, the Washington Post also has a column by Paul Farhi on why journalists should practice what they preach.
There is a third piece, by Victor Davis Hanson, on what he terms junk journalism. He finds it is often just activism, careerism, and narcissism to advance the Democrat agenda, and I can not disagree.
PJ Media has launched a new, free online forum that is dedicated to spreading the principles of freedom and liberty to America’s future generations, led by the classical historian and Hoover Institution fellow, Victor Davis Hanson. I am always thrilled when a new resource appears for freedom lovers.
Victor Davis Hanson thinks the media won’t go full bore on Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion because it might bring up questions about Obama’s largely unknown past. I disagree. Big media is perfectly capable of banging on about how many wives Romney’s great-grandfather had, while continuing to ignore how many women Obama’s father was married to simultaneously. Liberals and progressives will see no contradiction in this. Most others will.
After all, few in the press have complained that His Oneness hasn’t held a news conference in quite a while, and as Peter Kirsanow explains, the media will not report anything to the detriment of their far-left hero.
The Washington Post’s has at least one columnist no longer in love with His Oneness, and Mr. Kessler was unimpressed by the accuracy of Obama’s self-glorifying speech this week channeling Teddy Roosevelt in Osawatomie, Kansas.
Victor Davis Hanson thinks even less of the speech, which set up nicely for Peter Kirsanow’s questions for the President. Johnathan Tobin doesn’t think Obama can play Teddy. Ramesh Ponnuru has an interesting, slightly different take on it. David Harsanyi points out what an anti-capitalist His Oneness is.
MSNBC sticks to its unflagging support of His Oneness by reporting no jobs BUT also that there’s no recession. Dan Keating says the White House assurance that we aren’t headed back into recession may be right since we never really left it. Victor Davis Hanson quickly lists the policies which have failed, then explains why.
And just when you thought Obama might shut up for a while after his boffo, blockbuster, so important as to demand the venue of a joint session of Congress speech on the economy, comes the depressing news that more speeches and proposals on the subject are planned. Leaks of such an extended roll out tell me that His Oneness has no workable plan except to claim that he does and the mean old Republicans won’t let him blow another $3 trillion to get re-elected.
