Mark Tapscott is right that much of the media are “in the tank for Obama.” That’s why they failed to report on how his stimulus package repealed welfare-reform, and how it will shrink the economy “in the long run,” according to the Congressional Budget Office.
When the Obama Justice Department let thugs get away with menacing white voters in Philadelphia, despite protests from the Civil Rights Commission, the press largely failed to report it. And it failed to cover how his proposed financial rules would increase pressure on banks to make risky, low-income loans.
When an Obama adviser concluded that his proposed “barrage of tax increases” could “kill any chance of an early and sustained recovery,” journalists ignored it. And when Obama broke his pledge of a “net spending cut” through budget increases and $9.3 trillion in projected deficits, they ignored that, too.
