Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The Media Research Center continues to focus the hypocrisy of some in our business.
This week, the national media trumpeted the controversy involving New Jersey Governor Chris Christie with an enthusiasm they never showed for any of the various scandals involving President Obama, with MSNBC's Chris Matthews even summoning the specter of Watergate:
"The more we learn about Chris Christie, the more he does look like Richard Nixon."
Also, the same reporters who eagerly handed the microphone over to disgruntled ex-Bush officials to criticize a Republican President during wartime, now find it objectionable that a new book from ex-Defense Secretary Robert Gates criticizes President Obama, with NBC's Matt Lauer asking Gates if he was being "either dangerous or dishonorable," while CNN's Jim Acosta channeled how "the memoir is seen by some critics as an act of betrayal."
And on MSNBC, Chris Matthews revs up the liberal fear mongering machine, saying if Republicans win this fall, it launch "the return of something like Jim Crow days, literacy tests and poll taxes and all the rest."
Let's ignore Obama Scandals and stick to Christie's "bridgegate"
That's my point of view, what's yours?
