Let's count the scandals.

  • Benghazi
     
  • AP
     
  • Tapping reporter's e-mail
     
  • IRS
     
  • IRS parties
     
  • EPA "man cave"
     
  • Verizon spying

Can you imagine if Obama was a Republican?

The impeachment hearings would have been called last week.

The networks would have nightly specials called "Anatomy of a Coverup."

But, they have no answers, so the media is trying to blame all this "big brother" spying business.

For a while, almost every Thursday, we've had a new Obama scandal.

But, according to media reports from Breitbart and others, no United States mainstream news organization has broken one of them.

Verizon? Nope, not our guys. That was the Brits over at The Guardian.

IRS? Nope, not our guys. The IRS broke their own scandal with a planted question.

The Justice Department's seizure of Associated Press phone records? Nope, not our guys.

Believe it or not, the Associated Press didn't even break that story. Like the IRS, we only found out because the Justice Department outed itself in a letter notifying the AP of what it had done.

Benghazi? Are you kidding.

With a couple of rare exceptions (Jake Tapper, Sharyl Attkisson) the media have spent the last eight months attacking those seeking the truth (Congress, Fox News). It was the GOP congress that demanded the e-mail exchanges concerning the shaping of the talking points, not the media.

Most of our American press are nothing but the house organ or damage control for this administration.

That's my point of view, what's yours.

Interactive graphic: Texas lawmakers complain about domestic spying, but most voted to allow it
Friday, June 7, 2013
A lot of Republicans in the Texas delegation are griping today about the NSA’s domestic surveillance program. But over the past decade — in a series of five votes — very few current GOP members of the Texas congressional delegation have voted against requests by Presidents Bush or Obama to increase federal government power over Internet data and phone records.

This is how the Texas GOP Congressional delegation has voted on the NSA laws.

The media in the US is owned by six corporations: Comcast (NBC), Disney (ABC), Viacom, CBS, News Corp (FOX), Time Warner. These corporations also contribute heavily to political campaigns. In essence these corporations own US politics. No one is elected unless they receive money and coverage from these 6 corporations. As evidenced by the media blackout of Ron Paul's presidential campaign. This is a fascist country controlled by an elite ruling class. Eat a turnip serf!

I agree 100% !

I agree that we are truly having a crisis in America! Whether Republican or Democrat we are in trouble and it's time to stop the division. These events started way back in the Bush era (poppa Bush) and has continued until now. These are not scandals, these are Crimes! Wake up!

When Ron Paul warned of this type of activity during his campaign, media labeled him a "Kook". When Glenn Greenwald of the Guardian; a foreign media outlet, broke the NSA story American media was quick to discount the seriousness of this breach to our fourth amendment constitutional right with extensive "network" coverage of Obama's "Better to be safe than sorry" speech. From secret courts to secret bank bail-outs, secret gun running, secret IRS audits, secret State Dept. "cover" stories, ...

Absolutely correct. Ron Paul warned us about everything we see happening today. Dr. No, knew what he was talking about. Unfortunately the republican party has been taken over by false conservatives. Maybe Ted Cruz will be a positive force for constitutional freedom. But I honestly don't trust anyone in government today.

... secrets that aren't secrets when congress is allowed to purchase stock, but you and I did the same we are guilty of insider trading. This nation is not on the brink of fascism, it's mired in the tangle of fascist corruption. At the core of fascist America is a media that aids and abets with the lie of omission, the same media that blacked-out Ron Paul, a media which is an enemy of America.

YUP check news reports on how jeb henserling voted on bills to stop congress from doing just what you are talking about. He voted against every one of them and is now the chairperson of the Senate Finance Committee and his wife is receiving huge amounts of stock.

Because of all these scandals many have lost trust in our government but the bigger loss is when we can no longer trust the press to report the truth. When the government is in bed with the press the first amendment is worthless. MSM has condoned these violations with their silence. They bless the bypassing of the Constitution and scoff the Law of the land. The real power of the press has been given away.

Bill Clinton took the teeth away from the FCC, that governmental body charged with media oversight.

... and if I were the devil and trying to subvert, take over the United States of America ... I'd keep on doing just what I was doing. You better start caring America. Your future, your family, you are at stake.

Neal, the media "Shill", spoofs us all with the statement; "Can you imagine if Obama was a Republican"? He knows that Congress plays the Abbot and Costello skit "Whose on first" with these hearings, that nobody is ever accountable or goes to jail, in time we forget what the question was like with John Corzine. The two party ruse of democracy is another media lie, both parties are one side of a coin. Media's wool over our eyes is the lie that we live in a democracy and that our votes are counted.
