Digging Themselves Deeper

The mainstream media is doing their level best to avoid investigating the background of their candidate of choice but they have no problem in trying to dig up dirt on Cindy McCain. Here's the response from her lawyer-

It is worth noting that you have not employed your investigative assets looking into Michelle Obama. You have not tried to find Barack Obama’s drug dealer that he wrote about in his book, Dreams of My Father. Nor have you interviewed his poor relatives in Kenya and determined why Barack Obama has not rescued them. Thus, there is a terrific lack of balance here.

I suggest to you that none of these subjects on either side are worthy of the energy and resources of The New York Times. They are cruel hit pieces designed to injure people that only the worst rag would investigate and publish. I know you and your colleagues are always preaching about raising the level of civil discourse in our political campaigns. I think taking some your own medicine is in order here.

Given that Obama directed federal funds to the hospital where his wife worked- around the same time she received a massive pay-rise you would think that the press would at least have an excuse to go looking there. Instead they try to contact the classmates of Cindy McCain's children in the hopes of getting gossip from their parents about her? Unbelievable. Here are some other topics the media would be looking at- if Obama and Biden had an "R" after their names instead of a "D".

Demand not just medical records but earmark records from Joe Biden. Ask Barack Obama why he served on the Woods Fund with Bill Ayers for years and if he specifically approved grants to ACORN and a host of leftwing groups. Do a 3000-word piece on Obama’s earmarks and ties to corrupt Chicago officials to counterbalance the dozens of 3000-word pieces going after the other side (e.g. ”Palin annoys Wasilla librarian” and “Cindy McCain was addicted to pain killers”).

Even more shocking, not a single one of the networks news outlet or mainstream national newspaper has looked at Obama’s unprecedented attempt to use the Justice Department to chill speech. In all the pieces on “temperament” no one has reminded voters that the last president to try to employ law enforcement officials — as Obama did in Missouri — to go after opponents exercising First Amendment rights was Richard Nixon, not exactly the model of presidential temperament.

But, of course, that information would reflect badly on the man they so desperately want to win the upcoming election.
