Mama grizzlies rise up: conservatives more feminist than liberals, thanks to Sarah Palin
Masculinity 3.0: ‘retrosexual menaissance’ is great; just stop whining about feminism
New York Times columnist Gail Collins wastes whole article bashing House Minority Leader
As if we needed more proof the media was out to destroy Hillary Clinton and sell Barack Obama by any means necessary.
Thanks to detective work by the Daily Caller – and an unknown whistleblower who released the heretofore private correspondence of his colleagues in the pro-Obama media – we now have proof that prominent media personalities colluded to suppress the Jeremiah Wright story.
These Obama-campaign-workers-in-reporters-clothing sought to protect Obama’s ‘post-racial healer’ image from the nasty implications raised by his twenty year intimacy with a radical, anti-American, bigoted pastor.
Jeremiah Wright threatened to scare away all the white folks who worshipped as Obama as an unthreatening, half-white, articulate Magic Negro stroking their wannabe progressive egos while leading them to the promised land.
In newly released Journolist emails we find how Obama’s Big Media backers sought to run interference for the Obama campaign by softening the fallout from the Wright revelations:
It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign…
Watching this all at home were members of Journolist, a listserv comprised of several hundred liberal journalists, as well as like-minded professors and activists…
…According to records obtained by The Daily Caller, at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.
In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”
“And I think this threads the needle. If the right forces us all to either defend Wright or tear him down, no matter what we choose, we lose the game they’ve put upon us. Instead, take one of them — Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists. Ask: why do they have such a deep-seated problem with a black politician who unites the country? What lurks behind those problems? This makes *them* sputter with rage, which in turn leads to overreaction and self-destruction.”
Journolist, as noted about, was the private listserv for liberal reporters founded by Ezra Klein, scion of two major lamestream media bastions – Newsweek and the Washington Post.
If there was any doubt left about the rank bias, total corruption, and complete lack of integrity in the mainstream media, the exposure of this conspiracy should kill it.
From the very beginning, the media was in the tank for Obama. From the beginning they plotted to protect his fraudulent image at all costs – including smearing as racist anyone who dared not pay fealty to their beloved Teleprompter-toting savior.
The Journolist has revealed the dark hearted prejudice and dishonesty in today’s journalistic community. They should not be respected, and they cannot be trusted.
