Skip to comments.Flashes of honest reporting beg the question: Is the media bailing on Obama?

Of course there is no full-fledged media retreat from Barack Obama, but the number of gratuitous swipes ..certainly curious.
All of these reports from various media outlets have been posted in just the last few weeks. None of them will be helpful to Obamas re-election and all of them are the kind of reports heretofore found only in new media sources if at all.
.New York Times Arthur Brisbane called on The Paper of Record to determine who is the real Obama? Brisbane said that the Times hasnt done much to help develop a true picture of the real Barack Obama as it should now that he is standing for re-election.
An Indiana television station reported that through an IRS loophole millions of illegal aliens are getting tax refunds totaling in the BILLIONS for the support of children in Mexico and other foreign countries.
After Obamas weak April jobs showing the Washington Post (a legendary Democrat house organ) explained why his numbers are false and the true unemployment rate should be set at 11.1% not the 8.1%.
" .reminded readers that the 115,000 jobs added to the workforce doesnt even keep pace with the normal number of work age Americans entering the job market. Worse still labor force participation rate was injected into the discussion .
Maybe the worse breach of the medias omerta of silence about anything that shows Obama in a bad light was the report from Jessica Yellin of CNN whose liberal credentials are impeccable.
Covering an Obama campaign rally at the University of North In 2008 candidate Barack Obama spoke @ UNCs Dean Smith Center. Capacity 22,000. Today hes at Carmichael Area, seats -9,000. Wheres the luv?
By tweeting she [got].. bad news report past the gatekeepers above her.

I think the powers that be in the Democrat Party have set a “Date X” by which time if Barry’s poll numbers have not turned around, they will execute a plan to throw him under the bus.
Date X is coming up soon.
From your mouth to God’s ear!
It’s early in the election cycle and the Media is keeping their options open. That’s the whole point of picking Obama’s Republican opponent. They can live with Romney. In fact, they’ll have more fun with a Romney presidency.
“O” as political reality in American politics was invented/shamelessly cultivated by this self-same ‘media’... and so it will be impossible to put the Genie back into the bottle!
Besides, LONG before it sold itself to the enemies of this country, the MSM displayed the most unwholesome, gargantuan and ravenous appetite for political carrion. When and if this carrion was not to be found, the MSM created it of whole cloth.... that's how we got “O”.... thank you very much!!
Unless it can produce/find larger or more successful carrion, the MSM will NEVER release it's association with THIS one!
The very worst thing that could happen to Obama is if he should win a 2rd Term—The media will turn on him—all his past problems will be exposed —They love to build people up and tear them down. He isn’t smart enough or liberal enough for them. If he wins—I will bet he will never see the end of his term—he will resign in disgrace.
But the real stunner to me was the round table..and the participates...George Will, Greta of Foxnews,...Buchanan's sister of Teaparty support, and departed Obama economic adviser and a martin Luther King devotee...
Obama did get some flogging...and it was good.
First time I have seen that on the Sunday Morning Shows from anywhere other than Foxnews.

If I really believed that, I would vote for the SOB just to see it happen.
Unfortunately you woke up halfway through a nocturnal emission and your dream will never come true.
Just means they are not worried about challenger, Romney.
Do we have to go through this every election year? The answer is no. The Media is preparing now, when it doesnt matter, by saying a few minor negative things so that later, when it does matter, they can campaign for the Democrat and when called on it say "Look, nobody has been tougher on him than us! Why, remember that time we told the truth back in April about the crowds he was drawing?" and then go back to lies and spin.
What on earth are you smoking. The media has their collective heads so far up his behind, he can do anything he wants and they will never report it. They are what our inglorious journalism schools put out. If you put 50 of them in a room and ask them to tell you what is included in the first amendment, only 1 of them over 50 years old could tell you what is included. And these are members of the “elite” media. But my grandaddy always told me that crap always floats to the top. And that is what the media is today. Pure, undiluted pig crap!
More likely, if he wins a second term the rampaging children of the Left will demand that he immediately fulfill the rest of their Socialist wish list NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW!
And since the Congress is likely to be even more Republican than it is today, that will prove a sticky wicket for Barry.
We would experience four years of gridlock with an increasingly angry Left turning on him.
Narcissists have no shame and therefore cannot be disgraced.
