Skeeter? A CNN Journalist Did a Segment Insinuating Obama’s Lying About His Shooting
theblaze.com ^ | January 29, 2013 | Jonathon M. Seidl

Posted on 01/29/2013 1:05:03 PM PST by grundle

If there are truthers and birthers, should there now be a new term for those who are doubting President Obama’s claim that he goes skeet shooting “all the time”? And should that term be “skeeters”? If so, count CNN’s rising young star Erin Burnett among the gadflies.

During a segment on Monday night, Burnett took over two minutes to dissect the president’s shooting claim — and she found it wanting.

“Obama the skeet shooter,” she began. “Yeah, I’m not making this up. I mean, if someone is, it isn’t me.”

She then played the clip of CNN’s Jessica Yellin confronting Press Secretary Jay Carney on the comments, repeatedly asking if a picture of the activity existed and why no one had ever heard of him doing it before.

Burnett then turned to a panel where she said there’s “skepticism” among conservatives and non-conservatives about the president’s claim.

“So, now you’re going to say you do it all the time, don’t you have to kind of prove it?” she asked.

Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher wasn’t impressed: “Such speculation is to be expected from a deranged partisan, but not from a journalist. She owes him an apology.”

That's the trouble with these so called journalist - they're not skeptical at least with Demonrats. They would have failed my high school journalism class.

I believe Obama was discussing an activity defined in the Urban Dictionary. An activity he surely enjoyed with Reggie Love!

A “deranged partisan”?

I am starting to feel like I’m in Moscow in say 1933. So officially ‘good’ journalists now avoid asking questions.

I wish something would light this powder keg now. The Constitutional rule of law is further eroded every day.

I had to look it up a couple of days ago when I first saw the story about Obama ‘skeet’ shooting. Now I can’t stop laughing every time I hear someone talking about it. A congresswoman from TN has challenged him to a match (with a gun) ..... aside from the fact that I don’t think he’s ever picked up a shotgun, he’s too much a wimpy wuss to take her up on it, I’m sure.

Agreed... and asked - where and what type of rifle he uses, and where he bought it, when did he start shooting, etc. Details that anyone else who shoots could easily answer. I would have liked to see Obama squirm trying to answer those questions. And...surely, if he is a skeet shooter, someone else would know where he goes to shoot. I mean, I doubt it is on the White House lawn behing Michelle's veggie garden! But the press never calls his bluff(s).

So reporters are supposed to take whatever a politician says at face value and never ask questions?

He was referring to shooting skeeter bugs with his Ortho all purpose bug spray.

I reckon the MSM went from “liberal bias” to “full member of the progressive regime” in early 2008.

Odumbo has told hundreds, if not thousands, of lies in the last four years. And this one is the one the lame media chooses to question him on.
Boy, they’re sure doing a fine job!!

It is literally impossible for a grown man to NOT look like a dork while wearing a bicycle helmet. I’ve never worn one in my life, and if I did I’d want a full-face model because I wouldn’t want anyone who knows me to know it’s me.

There are no pics because no photog would want to be within 200 yds with the President holding a gun, swinging it all around.

The problem with Obama doing something "all the time" is that, now that it's known that he did it "all the time" he will not be able to do it ever again.

So, once again, Obama will have to give up something that he loved doing because far-right nutwing journalists hounded him for it.

It's a hard life being president and having to do without stuff...

This reminds me of Mel Brooks as Louis XVI, target shooting. "I LOVE the peasants. They are my people. ... PULL!"

Difference is that Louis actually did some shooting and felt no need to lie about it.

But otherwise, the attitude is the same.

What? Are you trying to say that you're not a good enough shooter that you need to use a shotgun for skeet? :=)

I was a regular 22-24 shooter with a 12 gauge. Ever shot Skeet with a 410? Talk about frustrating! If I was lucky, I’d get 14 or 15!

It's been many decades since I've shot skeet. (In fact, it may have been trap or sporting clays rather than skeet. Sorry, I'm not entirely clear on the differences.) I was in the Boy Scouts (a skinny 12 or 13-year-old) at the time and, wow, was my shoulder ever sore that day.
