So … Is the Mainstream Media Planning an Apology to Richard Nixon Any Time Soon?
By William Pauwels / 3 October 2012
It seems to me the mainstream media should experience considerable guilt over its persecution of President Richard Nixon for the Watergate cover-up – while at the same time giving President Obama a complete pass for his cover-up of the murders of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his American colleagues.
No one died in the Watergate scandal. Four Americans died in the Libya massacre. And the failure of Hillary Clinton’s State Department to provide adequate protection for the American Consulate in Libya is a neglect of duty and responsibility beyond comprehension. Perhaps if Obama were attending White House Security Briefings on a regular basis, this negligence would have been avoided.
But even more outrageous is the dereliction of duty by our Constitutionally protected Free Press, to not take-on this cover-up. In fact, much of the mainstream media have only dimly reported on it – and have down-played it in grotesque support of Barack Obama’s re-election.
To drive President Nixon out of office because of the break-in at the Democratic Party’s National Committee offices – while cooperating with Obama in his cover-up of the murders of an American ambassador and three of his colleagues – is beyond the pale.
Think about it! Nixon is driven out of office by the Liberal-Leftist media because of a break-in cover-up – while Obama stays-on after gross negligence and the murder of four Americans is covered-up. Talk about a double standard!
Recently on Megyn Kelly’s America Live news show (Fox News) Democratic commentators Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen spoke to this situation.
Both men are outraged by the “in-the-tank-for-Obama” behavior of the mainstream news media. They feel the Constitutionally protected media have abandoned their responsibility to report the news factually, objectively, completely and in timely fashion, without bias, to the American people.
They say that this is not happening because of an effort to cover-up for Obama’s failures. For example, in the case: of the Libya massacre and subsequent deception by Secretary Susan Rice . . . of the lack of appropriate protection for our Ambassador and Consulate personnel . . . of Obama’s trip to Las Vegas for fundraising . . . of the total world-wide collapse of Obama’s foreign policy . . . of Obama’s lack of attendance at White House Intelligence Briefings . . .
of the Fort Hood massacre and Muslim connection . . . of the “Fast and Furious” Mexican gun-running debacle . . . of the Solyndra bailout fiasco . . . of the financial failure of the GM bailout, et cetera.
At last! A couple of Democrat commentators telling it like it is. Perhaps there’s hope after all!
