BLOGGERS AND RADIO TALKING HEADS MUST BE DELIGHTED

Posted: October 19, 2013 in Uncategorized

The president this week called out some of the people who keep the anti-Obama narrative alive in America media. 

“How business is done in this town has to change,” Obama said during a press conference. “Now that the government is reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists and the bloggers and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do — and that’s grow this economy.”

The president gets it from the Limbaugh crowd regularly. There are plenty in the Michelle Malkin crowd as well, who are polemical, ad-hominem style “journalists” who find truths and partial truths to prove their political favor. 

Not so many, but just as loud, in the Ed Schultz crowd that finds the president to be worthy of praise at very turn.  But this is not a fair fight, and everybody in the media business knows it, and few are willing to admit it.

The president gets blasted more often, and with much louder and nastier rhetoric than that with which he is defended. 

One of these days I hope the people who run the news businesses in this country will stop throwing on the air the talking heads to yell at each other; it’s what many consider journalism today.  It is easy, it’s cheap, it fills the airwaves.  It doesn’t help the discourse and it certainly doesn’t provide a true reflection of the audience.
