If you took all of the integrity of all of the journalists in the main stream media and rolled it into a ball it wouldn’t fill a gnat’s navel. Here is just the latest example of their misleading “journalism”.
On February 10th Henrietta Hughes went to a town hall meeting and asked President Obama for some help since she and her son were homeless. How a homeless woman got to the mic and got to panhandle, (“Brother, can you spare a house?”) to the President is another subject. Maybe I’m just overly cynical but she had to be vetted. This was not just some spontaneous event, the handlers and the President knew what was coming.
Mr. Obama gave her a hug and the phone number to some government bureaucrat’s office.
What a great guy! He cares!
The next day the media was full of reports that Ms, Hughes and her son had a house. Another miracle by Saint Barack! See its working! Now if you greedy nasty Conservatives would just get on board the singing of “We Are the World” could begin!
But wait, it wasn’t Saint Barack or even the Blessed Michelle who got the house for Ms. Hughes. It wasn’t the government bureaucrat or stimulus package that found the house for these poor folks. No my friends it was a nice lady named Chene Thompson. Who is Chene Thompson? Is she a “progressive” who cares about all of her fellow Americans? Is she a Hollywood celebrity? Is she even a Democrat?
No. Mrs. Thompson is the wife of a Republican State Representative.
What, that’s not possible! The Right Wing Nut Jobs are not kind. Only the government can provide for us.
Was the word “Republican” even mentioned during the CNN story? Not once. In fact the piece was edited to give the impression that the gift of Mrs. Thompson was the direct work of Mr. Obama. Now that I am thinking about it I don’t think CNN even mentioned the word “Republican” during the next story about Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.
