Skip to comments.Exclusive: How The MSM Covered Up Fast and Furious
Posted on 04/16/2012 11:08:40 AM PDT by Nachum
In Katie Pavlichs devastating new expose of the Eric Holder Justice Department-approved Fast and Furious operation, Pavlich doesnt just expose the Obama administration. She exposes the mainstream media for what they are: tools of the Democratic Party, and of the White House.
As Pavlich recounts, the first mainstream media outlet to report on Fast and Furious was CBS Evening News, which aired a report by Sharyl Attkinson. She stated that the scandal itself was so awful that some insiders say it surpasses the shoot-out at Ruby Ridge and the deadly siege at Waco. She pointed out that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had been pushing through the sale of guns to Mexican drug cartels, and that gun shops had even tried to stop the questionable sales, but ATF encouraged them to continue.
When the Obama administration saw Attkinsons report, they reacted with utter fury. Officials from the administration screamed at her; as Pavlich reports, Justice Department communications director Tracy Schmaler called her up to yell at her. White House spokesman Eric Schultz reportedly directed a barrage of expletives toward her. Attkinson said that the White House and Justice Department labeled her not reasonable as opposed to other press outlets.
From their perspective, that was correct Attkinson wasnt reasonable because she wasnt parroting the party line. The rest of the media, however, was only too happy to do so. As Pavlich writes, The New York Times and Washington Post werent just reasonable, they seemed to act as press officers for the Obama administration.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
People should make note of Hilary Rosen, who so recently served as an attack dog against Ann Romney. Rosen did some heavy lifting for the Obama Administration, trying to line up working women who could look down upon a woman "who never worked in her life".
Over the weekend, David Axelrod was put on the spot (by John King) about Rosen's comments -- how could the Obama Administration say such awful things?
Axelrod responded by reminding King that Hilary Rosen is a paid employee of CNN. She is a journalist. Sure, she visits the White House, but she's a member of the mainstream press -- surely John Kind was not insinuating that the White House and CNN were in cahoots together? That would be oh-so very improper, wouldn't it? Hmmmmmmm?
John king shut up pretty quick.
I wish some PAC would run some informative F&F ads in the Hispanic media.
I bought the Kindle version of Pavlich’s book this morning. I’ve only read 6 chapters, but so far, she seems to do a very credible job of establishing the time line, and the Feds responsible all the way to Obambi.
This is a very easy read as it is written in plain language. I would happily contribute to any group who would want to distribute it freely far and wide.
We all know these issues. The problem NOBODY does anything about them except spout out their pieholes.
If this isn’t front and center in the campaign the Repubs have no intention of winning.
Meanwhile the drumbeat of Dictator Obama grows louder:
regulate - control - destroy - Regulate - control - destroy - REgulate - control - destroy - REGulate - control - destroy - REGU
If the GOP had any intention of winning, Mittens wouldn't be the probable nominee.
LucyT: F&F Media Complicity Ping!
IMHO...this possibly was Federally supervised drug-running...now trying to be back-tracked into a story that’s can safely be sold to Congress and America...
Meanwhile, Darryl Issa is busy gnawing the much more important Secret Service Sex Solicitation Scandal bone.
What's worse, is that according to the MEXICAN government, over 200 Mexicans have been murdered by the cartels with weapons supplied by the Obama administration.
I pretty much like Republicans for their values. Unfortunately, 99% of Republican leaders and "strategists" are politically stupid. Make that deeply stupid.
The DNC press covers up all his misdeeds.
Not just this one.
Apologies for the delay, been away/busy. My point exactly. 300 dead with 2000 guns still unaccounted for. Biggest scandal evah. Ignored by the MSM. A-holes. The lot of them.
