Hypocrisy of the Media is Maddening

I guess you get ridiculed for an observation about your chances with 47 percent of the population but earn a free pass if you insult 100 percent of the American voters. Such is life with a media so biased it can’t see reality through blinders.

Jonathan Gruber is an economist and regarded as one of the architect of Obamacare. In fact, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House when Obamacare became law, cited Gruber several times when she crammed the bill down America’s throat.  Several tapes recently surfaced where he boasts about taking advantage of the stupidity of the American voter to get Obamacare passed.

The aftermath is no surprise. The Conservatives seize the moment as proof to the Obama administration intentionally deceived the American public on the details and costs of the programs.  The Liberals backpedal from Gruber – none faster than Pelosi.  I wonder if she dropped her oversized mallet in her getaway.  And, of course, the Liberal media is not covering or downplaying the story.

Pelosi claims she doesn’t know Gruber and that is understandable. I’m sure most politicians cite sources without knowing who they are and what they believe.  But it’s still a story and where is the media?

Mitt Romney was vilified when he was caught in an unguarded moment suggesting 47% of the voting population would never vote for him because they are too reliant on government services. The airwaves and print were flooded with stories that this audio proved that Romney and the Republican Party looked down on us paeans.

Are we treated to the same coverage about the Democratic Party’s views on the American populace? Nope.  Just crickets.   Of course this is not the first time the Liberal media has skewed stories to fit their narrative nor will it be the last.

The media loves depicting Republicans as racists, sexists, gun-loving, Bible thumping Neanderthals. What is better, showing someone how to feed themselves for a lifetime or feeding them for a day?  Conservative policies feed for a lifetime while Liberal policies feed for the day.  Yet, Conservative policies are depicted as harsh and mean-spirited while Liberal policies are deemed compassionate and caring.

What is better for the individual?

The hypocrisy of the media is maddening and exemplified through this episode. It claims the Right is condescending to the American public – especially minorities – yet overlooks a clear case of it from their political brethren

My rants will not solve anything or change the media from biased coverage.  I’m just hoping to inform people and open some eyes.
