Liberal Media

Have Democratic Presidents Been Treated “Better” Than Republican Presidents By News Media Since FDR Onward? NO!

If you listened to Republican and conservative propagandists, it would seem that the Republican Party  is at a disadvantage when it comes to the “liberal”, “mainstream” news media, in coverage of Presidents and Presidential candidates.

Nothing could be further from the truth, as anyone who studies American history KNOWS that Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have all been subjected to an inordinate amount of attacks and criticism on every issue and personal quirk imaginable, and many have been purely fiction and mythology!

The job of ALL news media is to challenge, expose, and reveal weaknesses and inconsistencies in Presidential candidates, and Hillary Clinton, in particular, has had much more attacks, criticism  and fictional and mythological stories than ANY GOP Presidential candidate.

But the fact that Marco Rubio has issues with handling his finances; that Donald Trump has had three marriages and multiple bankruptcies; that Dr. Benjamin Carson has sponsored phony nutrition supplements that supposedly cure cancer; that Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and Bobby Jindal support an anti gay church leader who advocates gays be murdered; that Chris Christie has left his state in financial tatters and is still being part of the investigation of the “Bridgegate” Scandal in New Jersey; that Carly Fiorina lies constantly about just everything she talks about; and numerous other issues and controversies that  are real and true, not fabricated, is something that the news media and hosts of political debates should be expected to address, and to confront the candidates on these issues.

Instead, the Republican candidates as a group are “crybabies”, and Ted Cruz has suggested that a political debate be conducted by right wing conservative talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin, none of them legitimate journalists, but instead pure hate propagandists who exploit the gullible nature of too many listeners on talk radio and viewers of Fox News Channel.

And yet, one Republican Presidential candidate, Governor John Kasich of Ohio, says the party and candidates need to stop complaining and “sniping”, grow up, and expect the news media to be on the offensive, and to be mature enough to deal with it, and really answer the questions posed to them, just as Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley have to deal with regularly!  And that makes John Kasich a legitimate and serious Presidential candidate, separating the adults from the chidren!

Comparing Apples With Oranges: Obama Versus Republican Abuses Of Power Under Nixon, Reagan, Bush II

The Republican Party and conservatives are having a field day on the supposed Obama scandals over the Benghazi, Libya terror attack that killed the ambassador and three others; over the improper investigation of right wing groups by the Internal Revenue Service; and the investigation of Associated Press journalists on the basis of a national security investigation.

We are being told that Barack Obama is another Richard Nixon, when it is more appropriate to say that Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush are examples of another Richard Nixon, to a much greater level!

Nixon was involved in the promotion of break ins; internal revenue service investigations of political opponents, including Ted Kennedy; had an “enemies list”; had his aides do “dirty tricks”; blocked investigations by the Congress and the FBI. He undermined the Presidency in massive ways, and abused power in ways that have harmed the image of the Presidency ever since.

Ronald Reagan may have had a more pleasant persona, but he authorized illegal activities against Nicaragua, backed arms sales to Iran, feigned ignorance of Iran Contra, and promoted secrecy and suspicion of his opponents.

George W. Bush promoted deception and lies to get American into Iraq; engaged in the exposure of a CIA agent who opposed what he was doing; gave his Vice President Dick Cheney unprecedented power to abuse his position; had the IRS investigate liberal groups; engaged in lies and deception not seen seen Richard Nixon.

Barack Obama is NOT engaged in corruption of any kind, but his enemies are pursuing him as if he was the abuser that Nixon, Reagan and Bush II were, but it is all theater, and just like the pursuit of Bill Clinton for his personal behavior, it will fail, and the GOP will suffer as a result!

The sad part of this hot pursuit of Obama is that even liberal media are jumping on the bandwagon of attack, and they should be ashamed of themselves, as they demonstrate no knowledge of history, and are just pursuing a story to build up circulation and readership and make money, a sad moment for the media, when they allow the right wing propaganda to control them!

Carrie Prejean: Conservative Women Being Treated Unfairly?

Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California USA, who was controversial for her condemnation of gay marriage, who was also shown to have fake breasts, and to have produced a sex tape at age 17, acts as if she is a spokesman for conservative women in her new book defending her behavior. She claims a double standard favoring liberal women over conservative women.

She claims that she is a victim of liberal news media, as much as Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin, and that if conservative news media attacked Michelle Obama, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi in the same way, that the conservative talk show hosts would be fired!

What a bunch of lies and manipulation by a young woman who is a disgrace to her generation of women! Indeed, there have been bitter, nasty attacks against Michelle Obama, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi by conservative media talk show hosts.

At the same time, while liberal media have made fun of Carrie Prejean, Michele Bachmann, and Sarah Palin and criticized them, there have been no personal attacks on the level of Fox News Channel or talk radio. Every attack has been based on FACTS, not just name calling.

Carrie Prejean has proved to be really a true disaster, as she tonight on Larry King claimed that Sarah Palin is her hero, wishes she would run for President, but knows she is too smart to do that, and that Sarah Palin would be a great President and has done great things!

I ask, Miss Prejean, what have you been smoking or ingesting lately? You are truly loony! 🙁

As I was finishing this entry, Carrie Prejean took off her microphone on Larry King Live and sat there, claiming King was being “inappropriate” and refusing to speak. Just further proof of her total lack of credibility and legitimacy. This is something I doubt has ever occurred to Larry King, and is totally to be condemned. It just adds to the image of a horrible hypocrite. She came back and now is boasting that she is an author of a book at age 22. Overall, UNBELIEVABLE and DISGRACEFUL!
