With all those ISIL murders and Russia trying to annex Ukraine, with Nigerian Muslims kidnapping little girls for sex slaves, for millions of Americans getting the first bills/penalties for ObamaCare, what is the lamestream media all excited and outraged about? Rudy Giuliani's statement at a gathering in Manhattan that he felt Obama did not love America like most people do. And that Bill O'Reilly said he was in a war zone during the Falklands War in the early 1980's. My goodness, the extent of the lamestream absurdity knows no bounds.
Back in 2008 when Obama was running for President, he actually stated that George W. Bush was "unpatriotic" regarding the debt and other things he screeched about. But I do not recall the lamestreams getting upset. Of course, Bush is a "old white guy" of the powerful "white" Establishment so he deserved whatever Obama said and the press was on board. Those evil "white" power structure men are too blame for all the ills of the country and so, yes, we the press agree. No outrage here. But have one of those "old white guys" say something about our first half black and half white President and they become apoplectic! Here is the Obama ditty on Bush from 2008.
So what do you think? I say the press is simply stupid. In America we can ask the questions, we can make the allegations. The left does it all the time and usually with impunity from press scrutiny (look at Chris Christie and the bridge). I really think our leaders have to fess up about what they believe and where those beliefs came from. We are still waiting for the lamestreams to release Obama's college transcripts and his service records, just like they did with all the rest of the Presidents. But that would be racist they say. We just have to take him at his word. Hell, why is it that the press doesn't ask itself "is he affected or are his beliefs affected by his upbringing"? "Are his beliefs influenced by his Muslim father and Muslim stepfather and his schooling in a Muslim school"? Why aren't those reviewed ad nausea like they did with Bush's schooling and his military service? Because the press thinks it might be construed as racist? Probably, they are gutless wonders when push comes to shove about race. Only the evil "white men" are fair game. No person of "color" should be scrutinized. Hell the press can't even get outraged and report on the murders of blacks an blacks in Chicago!
In my view this all leads to what I see as favoritism of one group over another. It is perceived as "unfair". The press is doing themselves in. They don't realize, (or care) that Americans of common sense and "fairness" really see their bias. Obama called Bush unpatriotic and so did Giuliani call Obama the same. BIG DEAL! But in the minds and hearts of the lamestream press, only Rudy is culpable.
O'Reilly is now the target of a article by a fellow named Corn who writes for Mother Jones magazine. It is a far left magazine worthy of the bottom of the bird cage and usually is. Corn says O'Reilly lied about his activities back in 1983 as O'Reilly reported for CBS News from Buenos Aries Argentina during the Falklands War. I listened to what O'Reilly said and I came away with the common sense meaning of his words. He did not lie, or embellish his story. He believed the riots he and his cameraman were in in Argentina were part of the "war" against the UK. That is how I took it. It was all connected. Sort of like Bill Clinton marching in a May Day parade in Moscow when he was a Rhodes Scholar. The war was elsewhere but the home crowd was really into it (or against).
So my guess is the socialist left does its best to mute the right and will make any claim they think will embarrass or cause a person to resign their position. Hell O'Reilly actually defended Brian Williams who truly did make stuff up. The talk shows are replete with liberals and socialists yapping that Rudy is bad, O'Reilly is bad but Clinton, Bill and Hillary, are just fine. Trouble is though, the American people have had enough of the lamestreams favoritism and bias and their rating and sales are in the tank. Look at Time Magazine! Not much left there. Newsweek is kaput for the most part. The leftwing newspapers are crying for sales. Where is the only bright spots? FOX and "American Sniper". Things conservative are crowding out the lying leftwing TV, papers and magazines. Corn and Mother Jones will be toast too because the right is kicking their ass with the truth. Americans are fed up with the unpatriotic left and democrat party members.

CBS News released the tapes from the riots in Buenos Aries in 1982 where O'Reilly reported from. The tapes back up him. The Mother Jones, David Corn hit piece was a pile of bovine excrement. I wonder if the lamestreams will report this as much as the stupid Corn article?
