Rise of conservative media is
unintentionally protecting Obama

New York Post, by John Podhoretz

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/6/2014 4:58:54 AM

When it comes to Obama-era scandals, the American Right’s predominant emotion is frustration — a frustration that causes hypertension levels usually seen only in Cubs fans and the unfortunates hired to do PR for Lindsay Lohan and Shia LeBoeuf. Liberals dubbed Ronald Reagan the “Teflon president” because they felt nothing ever stuck to him. President Obama is the Scotchguard president; the would-be scandals that ought to be dogging his administration simply seem to bead up into little droplets before they are briskly wiped away. Conservatives will tell you, and rightly so, that this is happening because the mainstream media — the prestige

I don´t buy it. Long before Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, the main-stream media behaved the same way. Among countless other examples, consider Walter Duranty with the New York Times lying for Stalin, brutal assaults on Joe McCarthy for daring to reveal treason in our own government, character assassination of Barry Goldwater, relentless media hatred toward Richard Nixon for his entire career, Dan Rather´s astonishing lies about George W. Bush.

No, this is nothing new. These people need no excuse to lie, they do it as naturally as the rest of us breathe, and in doing so they betray their own country. Shame!

Note to Podhoretz: Quit calling it the mainstream media. That ship has sailed. Call it what it is: the drive-by Pravda media.

Podhoretz is usually worth a read but his reasoning in this article is bizarre. He says that the mainstream media doesn´t feel obligated to report the truth because the conservative media is doing so. So does that mean that if the conservative media went away, the mainstream media would start covering Democratic malfeasance?

To think the MSM would cover stories unfavorable to the left if the conservative press went away is very naive.

The rise of conservative radio and cable channels is due to the fact the MSM had stopped reporting the news. The MSM became the voice for democrat/communist propaganda.

Rush Limbaugh´s success was based on his telling the people just what was going on and why. He put words to our feelings. Then Fox news came along. Bill O. took a position between Rush Limbaugh and the MSM.

As far as protecting Obama goes, I don´t think Obama would agree that he is being protected as much as CNN/MSNBC/ABC protect him.

Because Conservative Media gives us a voice, it acts as a safety valve for the passions we feel about the left who is steadily ruining America.

However, while it vents destructive passions, it also helps guide, build and direct more constructive forces. Hopefully, when this engine starts to move, we can bury the ´Progressives´ and turn this country into the vibrant free society the Founders hoped for.

Podhoretz is a bit off base. The loathsome MSM knows it can lie, cover-up and fabricate with impunity for Dear Leader Barack Hussein and all Democrats for one simple reason: the GOP, the Right, has granted them permission. Any Democrat propaganda operative can now falsely claim to be a "news reporter" and falsely claim to be "reporting" a "story" while deceitfully spewing White House talking points. In any other business, this type of corruption would be punishable by law, but since no one on the Right will go near a court case siting, say, ABC News for false advertising, the paid propagandists will all happily continue with the lies, cover-ups and fabrications. We might as well make lying and covering-up crimes - while selling it, for profit, as "news" - legal in the US, since it appears it already is.

"unintentionally protecting Obama" - that makes no sense - so illogical.

Without Levin, and Rush, and Carr and Kuhner (Boston conservatives), all we´d be hearing from media lackeys is how brilliant and articulate he is, and how privileged we all are to be able to hear such soaring rhetoric.

Fact is, the popular media are intentionally or unintentionally turning their audiences into lo-fos.

The ´mainstream media´ deals primarily in propaganda and ruining Republicans. The Republicans have been largely ineffective in the MSM. After all this time, one would think the Republicans would be better at it.

The Conservatives have been trying to combat the MSM, but gets criticized by both parties. Very telling. Why is that?

If it wasn´t for the Conservative media, none of the Obama scandals would be in the public arena.

As it is, many people still only listen to the MSM and are not really informed of what is going on around them, and are largely ignorant of events that impact them.

Maybe old John wants to be invited to the party because this article is drivel. When Limbaugh started out years ago and they wanted him to include left wing stuff to be fair, he used to said, "I am the fairness doctrine."

We first heard him while driving across country well over 20 years ago. We couldn´t believe our ears because he was say what we were all thinking.

MSM is biased for the left and it is blatant-----lefty air shows don´t last long.....listeners get their same information from the likes of the alphabet groups, MSNBC, CNN, ABC,CBS therefore they already know all the content of a daily show as they herd it the night before.
What is alarming to me are the ones admitting they got their news for shows like Stewart, Mahar or Colbert.

Government is the biggest hotelier there is, with rooms and beds for everyone to sleep together. The public depends on accurate news and honest information that doesn´t come from any source anymore. News is buried or distorted in accordance with the official press releases. Coverage is either directed to attracting eyeballs (See CNN´s Malaysia Air coverage) or pumping misinformation to a segment of the public who can´t get enough, and won´t look beyond the talking points and slogans. And that goes from township council to Washington, DC. Citizen journalism only goes so far. The real value of aggregators such as this is that one can quickly find several sources and piece together a more accurate story.

Fascist dictators Mussolini and Hitler were never called "liberal".
Brutalitarian communists Lenin and Stalin were never called "liberal".
So, why call all demoRats and RINOS, "liberal", when they´re all emulating fascist and communist destruction?

Liberal means FREEDOM.

So, why does Rush, Sean, Bill, especially Ann Coulter, continue to give all Reid Puglosi traitors the "fake ID" of calling them "liberal", when they are actually ANTI liberal
ANTI freedom ?

Until our own good patriot citizen side wakes up and freely associates these desperate destroyers with their totalitarian indoctrination communist dogma, we will not win out. It costs NOTHING to call them what they ARE !
All it costs is guts, overcoming fear of being honest.

Number one nails it. They were reporting Whitewater, Cattlegate and Vince Foster the same way before the internet. The media is the vanguard of totalitarian, elitist, liberalism.

This piece is just high minded excuse making. The media is hysterically partisan and the whole conservative media adds up to little more than fighting cancer with an aspirin.

I don´t like this kind of analysis - it is simplistic and stupid.
We all know that so-called mainstream media does what it does because it laps the ugly broth from the trough filled from sewage connected to the leftist propaganda machine. It has absolutely nothing to do with practically non-existing conservative media. Stalin´s Pravda, Hitler´s Voelkischer Beobachter and Mao´s People´s Daily did perfect propaganda job without any conservative media.

Lemme see: Hiding Roosevelt´s paralysis, covering up JFK´s back problems, Addison´s, and affairs - the Camelot thing - all before the rise of the conservative media. The NYT has always provided (paraphrasing) "all the news (that they deem) fit to print" long before Rush, Glenn, and Fox News were around.

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters.

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
