Many of us have been witness to the media’s water carrying. We’ve known for many years that if you want facts not spin, you need to research yourself. There’s absolutely no reason to rely on the MainStream Media for your news. Here’s Jake Tapper on the media bias.
Tapper: Media Failing Country
In an interview with Laura Ingraham, White House reporter Jake Tapper said that the media is failing the country.
“A lot of people are hurting out there. Unemployment is 8.3 percent. That doesn’t even take into account the underemployed,” he said, arguing that too much time has been spent not talking about the economy.
Tapper also criticized the media for not giving enough attention to the war in Afghanistan.
“We are spending a lot of time in the last few weeks, those of us in the political world, political journalists and also politicians, talking about things other than the economy,” said Tapper. “[A] lot of people are hurting out there. I’d like to see more action taken and more emphasis given to this issue.”
Tapper also said he relates to Mark Halperin’s recent comments about the media. Over the weekend, Halperin said, “I think the press still likes this story a lot, the media is very susceptible to doing what the Obama campaign wants, which is to focus on this.”
“I have said before… [that I] thought the media helped tip the scales. I didn’t think the coverage in 2008 was especially fair to either Hilary Clinton or John McCain,” Tapper said.
On the 2008 coverage, he noted, “Sometimes I saw with story selection, magazine covers, photos picked, [the] campaign narrative, that it wasn’t always the fairest coverage.”

And he’s right folks. Our media which is supposed to be our eyes and ears has failed us for a very long time. The results are evident in the polls. Barack Obama polling above 30% approval rating is PROOF that the media is complicit in the corruption/incompetence of our government.
When the watchers quit watching and become part of the watched, we have NO RECOURSE but to investigate on our own. We have the tools, the ability and a very loud voice.
You will notice that even the most liberal of media outlets are starting to question their responsibilities. Newsweek? Andrea Mitchel? And some others are starting to ask some “Tough questions” Personally, I think this is a stacking of the deck. They know Obama is vulnerable, he may actually lose the election. Then what? There’s ZERO CREDIBILITY left for the MSM to question the next Republican POTUS on anything of substance. They are going to try to come off as “Fair” so if Obama does lose they can bash Romney repeatedly and say “We did Obama the same way”… LIARS but that’s the plan.
