THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Posted by PrestoPundit on 05/12/2008

Powerline:

It’s no surprise that the media are in the tank for Barack Obama, but
the willingness of the New York Times to simply misrepresent the
facts–while pretending to act as a fact-checker!–is pretty
breathtaking. You may think the Times is an outlier, if not a joke, but
I suspect that many more news outlets are prepared to follow the
Times’s lead in flat-out misreporting the facts, if that’s what it
takes to get Obama elected ..

I think we are about to witness a level of partisanship in the
“mainstream” media that has not been seen since the era of professional
news media began a little over a century ago. In the past, when
newspapers like the Times have misreported facts, people have generally
assumed it was, even if the result of bias, inadvertent. No longer. We
have entered an era in which leading news organs will intentionally and
persistently misinform their readers in order to achieve a political
objective–the election of Barack Obama.
