Our Liberal News Media have accomplished a couple of somersaults and made a sharp right turn; they have decided to take the high road and remove themselves from the Obama Nation. There are some very interesting comments last night after Obama’s speech on the BP oil spill.
Here’s some of the comments from MSNBC are more than a little unhappy with his speech last night; they are actually starting to bring both sides of the news to our table. They deserve a compliment from all of us and seem to be on the path to “real journalism.” They are returning to the journalistic “Code of Ethics.”
Could it be that more left news media will follow suit with MSNBC and give us the whole story instead of edited, regurgitated with the intent of getting a specific reaction from their viewing audience.
Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Howard Fineman react to President Obama’s Oval Office Address on the oil spill. Here are the highlights of what the trio said:
Olbermann: “It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days.” Matthews compared Obama to Carter. Olbermann: “Nothing specific at all was said.” Matthews: “No direction.”
Howard Fineman: “He wasn’t specific enough.” Olbermann: “I don’t think he aimed low, I don’t think he aimed at all. It’s startling.” Howard Fineman: Obama should be acting like a “commander-in-chief.”
Matthews: Ludicrous that he keeps saying [Secretary of Energy] Chu has a Nobel Prize. “I’ll barf if he does it one more time.” Matthews: “A lot of meritocracy, a lot of blue ribbon talk.” Matthews: “I don’t sense executive command.” Posted by Caleb on June 16, 2010, Western Center for Journalism
I see a change in the Liberal News Media and this in itself will hurt Obama’s theatrical speeches that are drenched in politics and saturated with the words of Axelrod, Plouffe and probably Pelosi. His trusty teleprompter has done gone south and his pretense of acting “commander-in-chief,” remains the same. He resorts to Obama theatrics, but could that ploy be a thing of the past too?
CBS didn’t give him any slack on his speech last night, they question his intent and his in ability to discuss real cost of the spill, actual time required to take care of the spill and the fact that he has placed all blame on BP. CBS saw that a large part of the speech went from the spill to the next item on his agenda (energy and climate reform.)
Even some CBS news stations said that Obama’s speech was an obvious attempt to play the “blame card” to remove all responsibility from his administration. They commented further that a National disaster should not be used to take advantage of Americans, but they sensed his ploy as soon as he started talking about Cap N Trade.
The tides are starting to change America, the Liberal News Media is shifting a mite bit towards center and that’s an amazing piece of news. Maybe they realize that the battle they’ve been fighting for the “Wise One” is a lost cause. They are starting to realize that this man we call Obama is strictly a community organizer (whatever that means) and not capable of filling the shoes as President of our USA.
