The usual perspective is that the media is in the tank for Obama, and you're a fool if you think otherwise, but why aren't they more subtle about it? I mean, there are ways and there are ways, right. So why is every liberal news outlet so in-your-face over the top about it? Are they just that stupid? Maybe, I mean you can't be a liberal journalist and be too bright because eventually, and sooner rather than later, your intelligence will be in conflict with the script.
But I think recent polls show why the media is so relentless – because Bobo isn't doing so well. Will all of their promotion of Obama, and their repeated attempts to diminish and dismiss McCain, and despite McCain himself assisting them in promoting Bobo, the candidates are tied. And I think even that may be misleading since with all the propping up and covering for Obama that the media is doing, and Bobo's blackness, people may be responding more favorably to pollsters than the reality of a vote might show.
So the liberal louts who pose as journalists may know that support for Bobo is less than it appears and even that what support he has may be unreliable since it comes primarily from young and stupid people if that's not being redundant, and as a result, they dare not stop the drumbeat. if they did, the false enthusiasm may wane and it would be very difficult to get it back.
So this race may be a classic turtle and hare story, not that I'm enthusiastic to have the second biggest idiot of the two become president, but even at that, much of McCain's stupidity is owing to his being a principled officer and a gentleman, while Obama truly and fairly represents his and later generations – careless, arrogant, superficial, and wholly lacking in respect for their elders.
And now I'd like to present you with a small bit of news you probably missed which dramatizes much of what I've just said. It seems that the always unremarkable and unreliable CNN has stepped in it in an effort to showcase Obama's enormous support…
In an American Morning segment designed to emphasize that Bobo's popularity has left college conservatives utterly frustrated, CNN offered up. "USC's Eric Perlmutter, identified as a member of the College Republicans, (who) was quoted saying 'we try to get people out to our college Republican meetings… but we can't seem to get the same amount of support' as Obama."
Now right there CNN should have known something was amiss. I mean, what college conservative would refer to Obama as "Obama?"
But seriously folks, I know television brings out the best in people, so here's the rest of the story: "After the president of the USC College Republicans spoke up to say he had never met this guy, CNN issued a fairly damning correction:"
A CNN spokeswoman admitted the error this evening in an e-mailed response: "Eric Perlmutter appeared on today’s American Morning segment about young Republicans on college campuses. While he attends USC and says that he is a registered Republican, he was inadvertently identified on-screen as a member of the USC College Republicans organization.
"We regret that error. We have invited Ben Myers, the president of the USC College Republicans organization, to appear on American Morning at a future time."
But the article says there's more to the story…
Is this Eric Perlmutter related to a CNN producer with the same last name? And why does he sound so much like a source in a recent Washington Post story? Implication: Perhaps this source or his quotes were engineered by someone at CNN.
Hmm. inquiring minds want to know, but the article draws its own conclusion:
Hopefully there's a simple explanation for everything, because otherwise? Lamest media fabrication scandal ever.
Ever? I'm sure that's an exaggeration, and that this is merely the lamest liberal media fabrication that the writer knows of.
