For example: in one of the debates, President Obama said he had acknowledged on the morning of Sept. 12, 2012 that Benghazi was a terrorist attack. Later we found out that on that same afternoon, he had told one of the major networks that he didn't know what it was. The network left that portion of the interview on the cutting room floor until the election. Is it important for our president to tell the complete truth?
I very much enjoyed this quick read concerning how today’s media portrays Barack Obama. David Freddoso, a Robert Novak disciple, stacks the deck with a well research text that is a continuation of Bernie Goldberg’s “A Great Slobbering Love Affair.” In fact this is the title of the first chapter.
This book systemically documents the excessive media biases over the last five years of the Obama presence. I was entertained by many of the author’s stories. Especially the one of Rush Limbaugh causing the liberal contrived ‘War on Women” by his remarks about Ms. Sandra Fluke (and it is Fluke like Luke!).
Although I am pleased that my party is in the White House, I am ashamed of the dishonest and corrupt practices that are truth documented in this book for future generations to view. This regime has no honor!
I was glad Freddoso wrote about Candy Crowley's intervention in the second presidential debate in 2012. I remember the incident clearly as I was quite astonished a debate moderator stepped into the debate and attempted to "fact check" Mitt Romney with the effect of aiding the President. Whether you agreed with Obama and Crowley's assertion that Obama was in fact referring to the Benghazi attack as an "act of terror" in the Rose Garden is irrelevant. Two weeks of actions by the President and his administration that followed that speech blamed the sensational YouTube video. How do you reconcile two weeks of repeated actions attributing the attack to a video to a indirect comment in the Rose Garden? Actions speak louder than words. For the President to claim he called it an act of terror from the start is highly misleading but Crowley did her job. The American public walked away thinking Romney was wrong.
