Will the media finally break out of its Obama reverie?
Here's a post from Doug Ross: "Real unemployment is now 11.7%; propaganda gap hits new level." The jobs report was awful in every way from downward revisions of previous months, a drop in manufacturing jobs, and the lowest participation rate for men since they starting keeping labor statistics.
And yet, the morning of the jobs report, Joe Scarborough was declaring the jobs report "good news" and a "tailwind" for the President. It fell to Chuck Todd to tell Joe he was an idiot. But can you blame Joe? He's just a pixel in the larger MSM brotherhood out to protect their guy.
Remember when gas prices were the top story on the news every night? Today, not so much. Newsbusters: "Networks hype gas prices four times more for Bush than Obama." Nobody talks about Gitmo anymore and there's zero interest in Obama's secret kill list. But if Paul Ryan says that Obama stole $716 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare (he did) then it's time to deploy the "fact checkers."
At some point, that J-school education has to kick in and they'll remember the class on balance and objectivity. Until then, brace yourself for some "fresh" reports on Romney's tax returns.
