Lame Steam’s Irrelevance

Networks Ignore Missouri Voters’ Rejection of ObamaCare, Instead Celebrate Obama’s Birthday

In the first voter referendum on ObamaCare, Missourians on Tuesday overwhelmingly (by 71 to 29 percent) backed Proposition C which called upon the state to enact a statute to “deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private health insurance,” an outcome the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described as “rebuking President Barack Obama’s administration.” On Wednesday night, however, the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts skipped the bad news for President Obama – yet all found time to celebrate his 49th birthday.

I’m guessing it isn’t occurring to the MSM that the general public perceives them as clowns? Irrelevant? When news of national interest, and importance occurs, the purpose of the media is to report the events. Is this what we’ve been getting from them? No. They are too busy lapping up D’Bama’s excrement.  What USE to be respectable news organizations are nothing more than the Goebbels wing of the White House now.

    The media has been proclaiming the gulf oil spill (3.9 million barrels) as the ‘ biggest’ in US history.

    A little checking and they would find that a Calif unchecked gusher in 1910 spilled about 8.3 million barrels, that is more than twice the amount of the gulf spill.

    ‘Lazy- brained’ as well as being ‘ lame-brained’!!!

    Why is it that the main-stream media is unable to ask a 3-letter question that all 4 year old kids know how to ask: “WHY???”

    That and the question: “What should it be???”

    As in, just what is the average temperature of the Earth and what should it be??

    And, WHY should it be that temperature???

    As for CO2, how much should there be and WHY should there be only that amount???

    I used to reply; ” Because Daddy says so!!”   :)

    I expect more from our President and his science advisors!!!

    That and the question: “What should it be???”

    Fer instance about Polar Bears.

    Have you ever wished that  the ‘main-stream media’ would ask about how many there SHOULD be  and WHY there should be just that many??   :)
