The media keeps showing its rear end. Let me just make that clear. If you are a competent reporter, I'm not sure how you cannot be embarrassed by the majority of those in your profession right now covering politics.
From Mark Halperin, to Jake Tapper, to Chuck Todd, more journalists are actually now admitting just how pliable the media is when it comes to Barack Obama's spin. All week long, as the economy deteriorates, most every anchor at most every news outlet, most every editorialist in most every paper, and most every "centrist" and liberal pundit has been pointing out the GOP's extremist abortion position.
Few, if any, have pointed out that Barack Obama's abortion on demand position is extreme. Few, if any, have pointed out how most Americans favor restrictions on abortion. Few, if any, have pointed out that Mitt Romney's position is actually more mainstream than Barack Obama's. Few, if any, have wanted to go beyond Politifact's ham-handed cover for Obama on infanticide and get into what Barack Obama actually said in 2002. Hear him come out for infanticide yourself right here. Remember, the media is hiding behind the left-leaning Politifact (and yes, it does lean left) to avoid having to deal with this.
They cannot help themselves. But why are they doing it?
They are doing it for the exact same reason Joe Biden is claiming the GOP will put black people back in chains and why Barack Obama would rather talk about uteri than jobs
