Consider this banner headline on Thursday:
How badly did Romney botch response to Libya attack?
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
We have a president whose policy helped topple governments in countries that represented no danger—Libya, Egypt, etc.
We have a president who apparently didn’t even consider potential danger at our embassies after a great deal of attention to the killing of Osama bin Laden ahead of September 11.
We have a president who apparently doesn’t realize the conflict his policy helped worsen in relations between the eastern and western sectors in Libya, a president who didn’t anticipate the fallout on countries like Mali whose democracy is now threatened.
We have a president who has downplayed the pitfalls in working with people who have continually tried to kill us—Taliban, Muslim Brotherhood.
We have a president who is still on the campaign trail as anti-American protests rage, and we have four dead from Libya, including a Navy SEAL and our ambassador.
Currently a rumor is afloat that our ambassador was raped before he was killed. That is unconfirmed, said The Washington Times citing sources reliant on news media in North Africa.
As the CBS headline glared from the page, U.S. embassies are under full assault. President Barack Obama remains on the campaign trail.
Ironically WOAI Radio (1200-San Antonio) ran an article including quotes from the CBS news boss claiming the network isn’t biased.
Boss Man is obviously delusional. If the network wasn’t biased, the header would’ve read:
How badly did Obama botch response to Libya attack?
Romney’s response resonated with the American people—I suspect that’s why media have circled the wagons around the candidate they were instrumental in electing in 2008. Please note that I'm fine with media having a bias, as long as they do what we indie bloggers do and disclose that bias. Otherwise, you lie to your reader.
If CBS isn’t biased, I’ll show you a birth certificate proving I was born on Mars.
By the way, Obama is now aligning with Romney's response. Glad to see our president finally found the First Amendment.
