National Post misleads on Leitch. Again.

The liberal mainstream media misreads, and it misleads. But now for some news:

Demonstrating the mainstream media’s amazing ability to misread public sentiment, notwithstanding their recent gigantic misses, I think the National Post thinks it is slamming Kellie Leitch today. But I suspect it’s actually going to help her. And that’s because readers are tired of being misled like this:

There is a lot of rational anti-radical-Islamist sentiment in Canada, and in fact it’s a now long-held official government policy in Canada and around the world. So it’s not insane for a politician to play to that precinct. Lots of Canadians gravitate toward Leitch for that very reason — she is the most outspoken Conservative leadership candidate on protecting Canadians and Canadian values against that real threat. Or are we still arguing about whether or not radical Islamists have shown themselves to be a real threat to Canada and Canadians — and globally? If so, you need to read a lot more than just the National Post and the state-owned CBC. You’re in the right place now, for example.

Still, those who delve into the article will be alarmed by the extreme message the group in question is sending, to wit:

The Rise Canada Twitter account has called Islam “a barbaric ideology of hate that must be banned,” and proposed “a permanent ban on all Muslim immigrants PLUS mass deportation of existing Muslims.”

Ouch. Further reading suggests to me that they sound like a bunch of racist idiots. But does that mean Leitch agrees with them? No. In fact she has emphatically said the opposite. And after all, Justin Trudeau and other Liberals have attended lots of questionable meetings, and mosques widely believed to be possible centers of Islamist radicalization without Trudeau or any Liberals even remotely challenging their teachings — nor the media challenging those yummy liberals. Nobody in the media posits that Justin Trudeau or Liberals associate with radical Islamists on purpose. The media actually just swoons over Justin Trudeau and all liberals no matter what or who they meet with. Swoons.

Oh but also, by the way, if you’ve got the time, there’s this tidbit: this meeting wasn’t what the media just tried to make you think it was. Later in the article, after the extended quotes of predictable righteous outrage from a National Council of Canadian Muslims spokesman, the reporter allows this small detail thusly: it wasn’t that awful group’s meeting. At all. That tiny group of loons were merely in attendance — as demonstrators — without Leitch’s foreknowledge.

In a statement to the National Post on Wednesday, Leitch’s spokesman said the meeting was organized by a group that wants to keep religion out of public schools and that the Tory leadership hopeful was not sent a guest list in advance.

“This meeting was about the place of religion in public schools. That meeting was attended by a number of people from a number of different groups, including people from Rise Canada,” Michael Diamond said.

But Leitch was unaware the Rise Canada adviser would be there, he said. “Had she known she would not have attended. She wants to be very clear that this guy and his opinions are repugnant and do not reflect her own views.”

And further down, toward the end:

She said the event with Leitch was organized by another group called Concerned Parents of Canada, which said it was opposed to religious practices in Canadian public schools and was not associated with Rise Canada.

“We don’t support or promote activities/dialogue against any religion or faith. We respect all. This was a free event and everyone was free to ask questions. That should not be interpreted or projected as any one individual playing a prominent role,” Concerned Parents of Canada said in an email.

The headline obliquely promised a “troubling” link between racists and Leitch. The only thing that is “troubling” is the bullshit headline.

This reminds me of Donald Trump’s campaign coverage. Any time a radical person or group of people were caught attending a rally (and the media spent all their time searching for them, as they’re all but inevitable in all campaigns — including even at the sacred Hillary Clinton’s rallies), the news media would get apoplectic and write all about that group and Trump’s “troubling” association with them (but would write about none of the good stuff Donald Trump actually said at the rally). When Marxists and communists and radical atheists and extreme left-wing groups and extremist feminists and the many various left-wing haters attended Hillary Clinton rallies — and they surely did — nary a word was ever written. Just the incessant swooning.

So: poor choice for Leitch to attend this? Sure, maybe. So call it that — in an editorial: Suggested word choice: “A poor choice, maybe, but whatever, next.” (Also go ahead and call so many of Justin Trudeau’s and Katherine Wynn’s choices to attend various places and meetings “a very, very, poor choice.” And then do the NDP if space permits.)

But to imply — in a news article — that Leitch was cavorting with these idiots, and that she in any way agrees with them — is itself radical. Extremist. A leap way too far. Even for a media which has given up all pretence of fairness or objectivity toward conservatives.

And to plaster the story on the front page of the “news”paper the way they did is hideously unobjective, biased, and an extremely poor editorial choice — especially for a newspaper that still fancies itself a purveyor of truth and honesty and which still wishes to be taken seriously.

“News” media can’t figure out the news. Even the fake news.

Aside from the problem that most “news” media outlets present hardly any actual news, and instead shove almost entirely left-wing, progressive, liberal, socialist, or downright communist opinion in your face every day (or fake news), my post today exemplifies another big part of the problem with the “news” media.

By the way I don’t do this to help the mainstream “news” media. I gave that up a long time ago. I do this to mock them. In my early days of political and media critical analysis, I actually did try to help. They failed to heed my advice. Now they’re failing even worse, and I relish their demise.

Note that the two stories I present here today are, ostensibly, “news” stories, so, if we are to take journalists at their word (don’t), this means that they are based on research and presentation of the facts, and on science (they so luvs the science), and so on.

But the two narratives presented here are at odds with each other. How could that be, if they are applying their ever-so strict journalistic standards of truth? They can’t both be right — and spoiler alert: they aren’t. (Also note that they can, however, both be wrong, and they almost always are.)

The first one hails from the National Post, Canada’s even more liberal answer to USA Today — or something (even they don’t know what they are so don’t expect me to). The byline is Washinton Post, so they didn’t even write it — they bought the story from the obsessively and now actually ridiculously Trump-hating, Trump-bashing Washington Post. Interestingly, the Washington Post original is posted in their “Style” section along with movie reviews and arts reviews, as the fluff piece that it actually is; the NatPo proudly displays it as a “news” piece in their totally hard-news “World” section.

(And by way of example regarding how I might have tried to help newspapers not fail so badly, the kind of advice I’d offer is: don’t buy an anti-Trump fake news drive-by smear story or hit-job from a clearly left-wing Trump-hating newspaper, unless you want to be seen as equally left-wing and Trump-hating (and hey guess what? They do) — and as another fake new outlet. And I’d advise them that such a editorial or business decision was folly, and counter to the journalistic principles to which they are obliged to adhere. (And they wouldn’t give a crap what I had to say).

So here we are.

The article goes right ahead and admits that notwithstanding the whole “AWOL” angle, she’s at home with their young son in New York until the school year ends. That is, by definition, not “AWOL.” So “AWOL” my ass. But let’s not screw around. The National Post and the Washington Post know this very well. They’re just writing smeary, sneering, anti-Trump propaganda, here. It’s not “news.” It’s not even based on truth. It’s bullshit.

Same day, different take: Politico.com had a decidedly different “news” story about Melania Trump.


How could this be? I thought she was “AWOL!” The Politico reporter seemed to have managed to find her and quote her and he wrote a pretty fair and straight-up news story about Mrs. Trump’s various outings and goings on these days. And let’s remind ourselves that Politico is no right-wing media source. They’re as left-wing as most of them. So three cheers for (for once) not doing a Trump hit piece. (And now back to their regular programing with, for example, “The best of late-night TV: Trump repeals the environment”).

The lesson here is that when you abridge the truth, or outright lie as a “news” source, you’re going to make a total ass of yourselves and lose the people’s trust. Most people with the intelligence of a frying pan would know this.

Among other things this speaks to the value of reading more than one source — like maybe ten — to get an semblance of where the truth lies; but really, no matter how many sources you read these days, even if you can sort it out, you’re rarely if ever getting “truth” or “facts” or “science,” you’re getting mostly left-wing opinion and propaganda and fake news from these “reporters.” And it’s mostly crap.

And they know how we the people feel about it, but don’t even care. Look: same day, same news source:


Poll: 6 in 10 Americans think traditional news outlets report fake news

03/29/17 11:21 AM EDTA majority of Americans believe traditional media outlets publish fake news reports, and Republicans are more likely to believe that fake news is being pushed to advance an agenda, according to a Monmouth University poll released Wednesday.

The poll, which was conducted by phone during the first week of March, found that 80 percent of respondents believed online news sources reported fake news either regularly or occasionally. Fifty-four percent of respondents, including a majority of Republicans, independents and Democrats, said that fake news reports online were published on purpose in order to advance a specific agenda,

Respondents had only slightly more trust in traditional news outlets, with 60 percent of respondents believing that traditional news outlets reported fake news either regularly or occasionally and 40 percent saying that they believed traditional news outlets reported fake news on purpose to push an agenda. …

At least they reported it.

Crooked Hillary move over: Trudeau Liberals sound like the corrupt Clintons; and our media love them all the same

I’ll give the Globe and Mail credit for at least breaking from their Donald Trump smearing obsession for five minutes today, to mention one of our nation’s biggest stories (and one that’s true, too!). They’re suggesting today what could be massive political corruption, in our country, associated with the Trudeau Liberal Party. Yes, them, again. (Don’t worry, they still smear Donald Trump plenty today, with delightful lines like this line in a hard “news” report: “…Mr. Trump’s simplistic and angry campaign rhetoric may be much more difficult to accomplish…”).

Here’s their cover story, which continues way back on on page 15 (anti-Trump stories first, doncha know).

2016-11-22_075843

The Globe and Mail’s effort today is a lot more than I can say for the National Post or Trudeau’s state-owned CBC division, which mentions not one single word about what really could be a huge story of nation-changing political corruption.

It’s all very Clintonian.

But like the Clinton’s corruption and the media’s response (“yawn, wink”), I suspect the liberal media here will give their beloved Trudeau an absolute pass as well. Which makes the liberal media as corrupt as the Liberals.

For the record, the left-wing Toronto Star and liberalvision CTV also fail to mention one word about this, even though it’s about potentially enormous political corruption affecting the governance of our country, to say nothing of a major election promise being smashed to smithereens.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was the top draw at a $1,500 Liberal Party cash-for-access fundraiser at the mansion of a wealthy Chinese-Canadian business executive in May. One of the guests at the event was a well-heeled donor who was seeking Ottawa’s final approval to begin operating a new bank aimed at Canada’s Chinese community.

The Globe and Mail has learned that wealthy Chinese businessman Zhang Bin who, with a partner, donated $1-million to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and the University of Montreal Faculty of Law weeks after the fundraiser, also attended the event. Mr. Zhang is a political adviser to the Chinese government in Beijing and a senior apparatchik in the network of Chinese state promotional activities around the world.

Chinese Business Chamber of Commerce chair Benson Wong played host to Mr. Trudeau and 32 other people at his Toronto home. Among the donors was insurance tycoon Shenglin Xian, the founder of Wealth One Bank of Canada, and several Chinese billionaires…

There are no lines in the news story like “Mr. Trudeau’s simplistic and angry campaign rhetoric was obviously a lie and was obviously much too difficult for him to even pretend to give a shit about…” But at least they wrote something. Now they can go back to Trump-bashing. Hey maybe Ivanka’s dresses are too summery or something! And surely that makes her a racist!

So yes I think it’s important to think about why virtually none of the other news media in Canada is covering this story of potential Justin Trudeau/Liberal Party political corruption (again). Even if this latest revelation were exclusive to the Globe and Mail, other media can certainly report on the Globe and Mail’s findings. The Globe and Mail does that all the time. They all do. God knows if a story about Stephen Harper ever appeared in the Toronto Star as an exclusive, every single other news media reported on it. Just like they do with Trump stories.

The fact that they have chosen not to in this case needs to be investigated. Especially the failure of the state-owned CBC, since we pay them $1.5 BILLION per year to do…. whatever it is we pay them to do.

Today in ACTUAL hidden agendas, National Post editor quietly helps write Trudeau campaign book, thinks that’s OK.

Each new day gives me fresh reasons to reiterate this: the mainstream liberal media has given up even the pretence of impartiality and objectivity and fair and balanced reporting.

Today, as if to prove it yet again, Jonathan Kay, an editor in charge of the editorial division of the National Post, is caught hiding the fact that at least six months ago, he was paid to help write Justin Trudeau’s book, which was released amidst much ongoing liberal media fanfare, just this week.

As they say, it’s not (just) the “crime,” but the coverup. And by “they,” I mean liberals in the liberal media, when they’re making random accusations against conservatives of scurrilous coverups and that mystical, pernicious, “Hidden Agenda®.”

Jonathan Kay

Jonathan Kay, a National Post editor who helped write Justin Trudeau’s book, without telling us. The book was timed to be released just in time for the election campaign. (Wikipedia photo)

Trudeau’s book, Common Ground, was clearly a design of Trudeau’s political campaign team, and meant as a campaign book, timed just right, and written only to boost the political campaign of a political candidate – a candidate for an important office: prime minister of Canada.

And an editor of a national newspaper helps write it, hides that fact from readers, and thinks that’s OK?  Yeah no. It’s not OK.

It’s so obviously not OK that today, Jonathan Kay dutifully took to his own newspaper’s editorial section – which he edits – to apologize and resign. No sorry, I was dreaming of living in a sane world, and got that wrong. He wrote, dismissively, absurdly, in defence of his actions.

After all, he says, since he’s employed as a professional by the news media, he is, therefore, fully impartial! He says it as if it’s a universal truth. I imagine if we don’t agree, we’re “deniers.”

…Nor was I working to promote any particular political agenda: As a professional writer and editor, I am merely a gun for hire, so to speak. …

See? Which reminds me of another thing I say: liberals think everybody in the room agrees with them.

The absurdity mounts with almost every sentence he types.

… Yesterday, critics on social media described my work with Mr. Trudeau as “secret,” and claimed that the Star’s naming of me was a “bombshell.” Not quite: Mr. Trudeau lists me on the book’s Acknowledgements page. …

So it’s not secret, um, after we find out. That’s true, I guess. In a very twisted way, kinda like when that cop tried to give an idiot a speeding ticket, and the idiot said “but you’re giving me a ticket right NOW, and I’m not speeding right NOW.”

What he indicates now, today, is that any fanciful machinations from you stupid neocons about any funky ridiculous conflict, ended exactly when he cashed his check for helping to write that book – “Full stop,” he writes, reminding us of Barack Obama’s lie, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your plan, PERIOD.”

And then magically – no really you guys – he is no longer conflicted. Like now, for instance, he has no interest in the sales of the book, or in the political prospects of Justin Trudeau. That’s totes for real you guys. Because, journalism.

Do you believe that? Do you believe that he doesn’t hope Trudeau wins the next election? Or that the book he worked on for this politician, which the politician wrote to help him win the election, sells really well?

In a staggering bit of obfuscation, logical incongruity, and a strident effort at moral relativism, he name-drops Ezra Levant, of the Sun News Network. This is a failed attempt to turn us “cons” around. As we know, although Kay doesn’t mention it today, for once, so many self-anointed elites like him in the liberal media cartel, collectively and in unison, as if by sheer coincidence and not at all by covert design, all have a hate-on for Sun News and Ezra Levant.

I have worked as an editorial assistant on a wide variety of books — including, ironically, Shakedown, Ezra Levant’s own 2009 manifesto against Canada’s human-rights commissions.

Ironic? It was an excellent book. (And yeah, I tend to use the term “book,” rather than “manifesto.”)  Oh and Ezra Levant is not running for political office. Wasn’t then, isn’t now. And Justin Trudeau is. So Kay’s “irony” falls flat.

You want irony? OK here’s some irony: the likes of Jonathan Kay constantly, and like so many left-wing hack bloggers, accuse the Sun News Network of being in the pocket of the Conservative Party – like it’s a covert “neocon” operation which is actually bought by the CPC. And yet here’s the National Post editor helping to write a Trudeau campaign book. Getting paid to do so. And all while remaining on the job – then, and now. That’s irony.

We all hear the media blather on about politicians and the government being open and transparent and accessible to the media and therefore the public. The public’s right to know, and all that. But liberals and their media apparently have a completely different set of rules for themselves.

And that is today’s example of the perfidy of the liberal mainstream media.

UPDATED: Hideous anti-Fox News Channel, liberal bias exposed at National Post

Updated below

This is real.

This actually happened.

No, this isn’t about the far-left CBC, but I do understand the confusion.  Yes, Canada, this is what passes for objective news reporting, today, from what is purportedly a reputable, supposedly neutral or objective, national newspaper. And it’s also an excellent explanation for why the liberal-left news media is going bankrupt  —  financially if not journalistically.

'Fox News anchor stops ragging on Obama long enough to get arrested in drunken airport encounter'

It’s an Associated Press story brought to you by the National Post, which clearly spun it by pulling that headline out of their nether regions, to make it more to their liking. The National Post is displaying some of the same juvenile proclivities it displayed when “reporting” on Sarah Palin,  Ann Coulter,  and the tea party, and anything else remotely conservative (or, in the case of Fox News, tolerant of conservatives). Maybe we can just blame it on some unpaid summer interns or students who are apparently running the place right now. Or maybe they’ve just given up over there. I don’t know.

AP didn’t create that headline. Here’s how the AP delivered the story:

'Fox News Anchor Charged After Airport Arrest'

From “Fox News Anchor Charged After Airport Arrest,” to “Fox News anchor stops ragging on Obama long enough to get arrested in drunken airport encounter.”

I imagine this will eventually be seen by one of the grownups at the National Post  —  or a shareholder, or something. Perhaps Andrew Coyne or Kelly McParland or Terence Corcoran will tap one of the kids on the shoulder, and the headline will be corrected, since opinion is really their domain, not the news department’s.

It should be noted that the National Post’s parent, Postmedia, is struggling, certainly journalistically if not financially (it lost $25.3-million in just this year’s second quarter), and in terms of readership (NP is ninth in Canadian circulation); while Fox News Channel is by far the most-watched cable news channel in America  —  usually doubling the audience of CNN and MSNBC combined, in every hour of every day. Oh and also, FNC is the only major news outlet that doesn’t give President Obama a tongue bath all day long. Obviously that deeply offends the balanced set at the National Post, who might want to get a clue.

So for their own good, the National Post should stop ragging on Fox News Channel like obstinate children of liberal parents  —  and actually, stop ragging on all conservatives and conservative-tolerant organizations  —  since it’s really just embarrassing for them, and stupid in every way I can think of for a newspaper today. It’s like they’re drunk.

 UPDATE

As predicted, sort of, they’ve changed it. Sort of.  It’s like they’re stubborn, belligerent little children…

Since when does a mortgage rate war “loom,” or concern government?

The news media is weird. But anyway, here’s some real news.

all-eyes-on-gov-to-hold-peoples-handsTheir tease on their front page   —  in this case the National Post, but it doesn’t matter  —  tells you BMO is lowering its five-year fixed mortgage rates to below 3%.

That is fantastic news for people and families. All eyes will be on saving money and living the Canadian dream. Right?

Wrong! The news editors think it’s all about the government. “All eyes on [finance minister] Joe Oliver as BMO signals start of new mortgage rate war by cutting 5-year below 3%.”

The government shouldn’t have the slightest thing to do with this, since it’s none of their damn business; and also, this isn’t the Soviet Union.

I do understand that the story reflects one not long ago wherein then-finance minister Flaherty wagged a finger from his big-government bully pulpit at banks who dared to lower rates (and convinced them not to!), at a time when the big nanny-state wanted to calm (actually, control, full-stop) the housing market. But oh hey, by the way, what the hell was the government doing trying to control the free market anyway? Don’t they control enough? They want more control over us and our personal  and business decisions? Why yes they do. Thanks for asking.

They should get out of the mortgage business entirely, as they have no business being in business of any kind. Not the CBC, not insuring mortgages, and not controlling banks.

Bear in mind the big nanny-state government we’re talking about is not the socialist NDP or the slightly less socialist Liberal Party  —  but imagine if it were… and now please stop torturing yourself with that dreadful thought looming over you like a big Russian bear. We’re talking about a so-called Conservative government. Alas Rand Paul and Ted Cruz would laugh at this one, even if you won’t. I merely freak out.

Joe_Oliver“Finance Minister Joe Oliver again warned Thursday that he is monitoring the mortgage market closely.”
– Financial Post

That Oliver remark is  supposed to provide comfort? Sounds more like Ronald Reagan’s line,

Ronald_Reagan“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.'”
–Ronald Reagan

So yeah, no, Joe Oliver is not where my eyes are at all, with regard to this news, except to make sure he stays out of my business. Most eyes  —  I won’t even venture “all,” but pretty much all  —  are actually on their own mortgage, where people are paying more than 3%, and would benefit by refinancing now. And many Canadians could now buy their first home… unless the government stops them, seeing as they think they know better that you about, well, you.

Their eyes  —  the media’s and all progressives’ eyes alone  —  are on the government, looking for their wisdom and guidance and motherly protection, as a reflex reaction. Because everything in life revolves around the government, to progressives.

As a secondary matter, why does the Financial Post see a mortgage rate war  —  something which benefits all normal, responsible consumers  —  as something that “looms?”

Looming_headline

Loom

Looming_thesaurus-1

What brooding has inspired this sullen headline? Only someone tainted with the stink of the anti-free-market set, and progressives, and full-on socialists, would view a mortgage rate drop and competition for the lowest rate, as a war that “looms” over us.

I’m sure it wasn’t a brooding author, who’s bio begins “Garry Marr’s cheapness dates back to as early as age seven, when he swallowed a dime and demanded the folks at the Hospital For Sick Children return it.”  Maybe one of the paper’s editor learned to brood over free market competition at their journalism schooling, and become obsessed with a big-government reaction to a free-market activity. My wary eyes are often cast at those institutions of left-wing propaganda. True story: I swallowed a penny, and demanded the Lion’s Gate Hospital return it, never went to journalism school, and I love mortgage rate wars, and I am inclined to advocate for small government, and free enterprise.

It isn’t a mortgage rate war that “looms” over us, it’s government which looms over us.  So let’s get that straight, even if the progressives now dominating the media, can’t.

National Post: please provide your ’07 reporting of what is still new to your audience today

Like the rest of the Obama-luvin’ mainstream media, Canada’s National Post is apoplectic about the latest example of Obama’s lies and failure  —  and the exposure that Fox News Channel is giving to the liberal media’s own failures. Like its scarcely reporting any hard facts which could be damaging to their man Barack Obama   —  then or now.

I’d love to see National Post’s “five years old,” “so-called” “reporting” (to use their own scare-quotes as per their tendentious Tweeting style) on this video from back in 2007, before Obama was elected, when it was also new to their readership. I suspect there wasn’t any. So it certainly would be new to their readership today. The news isn’t “five years old” at all, to their readers.

Nor is the story of Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital (which is a success story, but they “report” on it as if it were a negative). Or the fact that Romney is a wealthy man (which they also “report” as a negative). Those stories are actually 10 or more years old. But that doesn’t stop the National Post or any lamestream media from reporting on it, extremely negatively, over, and over, and over again.

In fact, the video itself isn’t new, and nobody said it was! In fact, the DailyCaller.com, which is actually the news organization which exposed this video yesterday (not their old clichéd nemesis Fox News, as they even admit in their story  — so why Tweet otherwise?), clearly says this is a 2007 video, precisely to make the point that exposing this is also an indictment of the liberal media’s cover-up of the true story, way back then.  And way back then means when it should have been exposed fully, before Obama was elected with the help of the Obamamania media like the National Post  —  when voters really needed to know about the facts  —  the true character of Barack Hussein Obama, through a detailed vetting and full, objective assessment of his actual character. You know, they way they did (only woefully unfairly and full of malice and mendacity) with regard to Sarah Palin and her entire family, in detail.

And DailyCaller’s point is also the fact that only nine minutes of the video was ever available until now, out of the whole 36-minute video, and that some of the most damaging (to Obama) footage was the 27 minutes conveniently left on the cutting room floor. Other than that nine minutes, the rest is indeed brand new. It has never been seen.

Is the National Post therefore ignorant? Or deceptive? Which one?

National Post, today, doesn’t bother to cover that missing footage of the story either. That’s because really, the National Post is only concerned with slamming Fox News Channel, rather than the real story subject, which is Barack Obama’s angry, divisive, race-baiting and racially-charged thespianism and pandering.

Just look at the National Post’s article about this today: the video clip they provide their online readers selectively includes only a few seconds where Obama simply gives a “shout-out” to Obama’s mentor, Jeremiah Wright, instead of the fuller, more damaging new video footage now available to them. Why did they choose to do that? Aren’t they interested in the truth?

As the DailyCaller also explains, newspapers and other print media which pretend to be objective and pretend to employ journalists, only ever dutifully reported (to the extent they even touched this bit of Obama-exposing race-charged demagoguery at all) from the supposed “transcript” provided to them, which was from the Obama people themselves! And conveniently and deceptively the Obama people called it a “transcript” of the remarks, which is a lie: they only provided the liberal media with the pre-scripted (Obama/teleprompter) remarks, and not the actual words spoken  —  the actual transcript  — which would include the parts where he goes off-script and takes on that race-charged, pandering, divisive, anti-white rhetoric, and drives it to a whole new level.

The liberal media, in 2007, including as best I can tell, the National Post, also never said anything about the hilarious, fake southern/black accent Obama is putting on in the speech, in order to pander to his mostly black audience  —  despite his being born in Hawaii and living in Chicago most of his life. I know southerners, and northerners, and I have family in Hawaii. Obama’s faking. Play-acting. And that’s weird.

The media never really reported on any of this then and most, including the National Post, won’t even broach the real subject  —  the real problem  —  now. They “report” only on how ridiculous they think it is that Fox News is reporting the whole truth on all of this. In fact, their article is really nothing but a sad, silly and unwittingly, a very revealing rebuke of Fox News’ reporting of the facts; and a scathing criticism of Fox News. Their ink, and what’s left of their credibility, should actually be reserved for the belated, full and honest vetting of the angry, divisive, race-baiting Barack Obama, whom they already helped elect as president once.

But they’re too pro-liberal and biased to do that. That’s what’s more importantly “not new.”

Here’s DailyCaller.com’s video:
