I’m still can’t get beyond Bernard Goldberg’s “A Torrid Love Affair- The True (and Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media”; a must read for sheer horrendous incredibility.
Here’s some of the scary stuff that got us where we are today. [My comments in brackets.]
Tom Brokaw appearing on the Charlie Rose Show a few days before the election:
Rose: I don’t know what Barak Obama’s world view is.
Brokaw: No. I don’t either.
Rose: I don’t know how he really sees where China is.
Brokaw: We don’t know a lot about Barak Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.
Rose: I don’t really know. And do we know anything anout the people who are advising him?
Brokaw: You know that’s an interesting question.
Rose: He is principally known through his autobiography and through very aspirational speeches, two of them. [Count them folks, two of them!]
Brokaw: I don’t know what book’s he’s read.
Rose: What do we know about the heroes of Barak OBAMA?
Brokaw: There’s a lot about him we don’t know.
[Really? And you are the journalistic elite whose job it is to investigate, discover and report without bias?]
Goldberg includes this by Rush Limbaugh after playing the Charlie Rose show tapes:
“These guys are looking at Obama and they’ve seen him the exact way we have, all of this time. They only now, after they think they got him into office, are starting to talk about their fears, about how nobody knows anything about him; his resume is thin, he’s only written two books, and they’re autobiographies; we don’t know what books he’s read…We don’t know anything about him. It’s creepy, never seen a victory speech with nobody on stage…Look at all that they refused to report. They had plenty of chances to write editorials at Newsweek magazine, and they didn’t write one reflective of what they really saw and know and fear about Obama.”
All this raises an important question: Who the hell did we just elect president of the United States?
[What’s trully sad, is that we are now finding out.]
