Pulitzer Prize Winner Seymour Hersh Says The Obama Administration Lies Systematically and American Media is Pathetic and Carries His Water
The MSM, from watchdogs to Obama lapdogs … And we wonder why investigative journalism is dead?
The Guardians’ Seymour Hersh calls out Barack Obama, his minions and the lapdog main stream media. Hersh says that the Obama Administration lies systematically and American MSM is pathetic, bias and afraid to actually report the truth regarding Obama. It does seem lately to actually get an investigative, non-bias news story these days, we have to look to The Guardian or other foreign media as the Americans MSM is in the tank for Barack Obama. Hersh is hardly a right-winger, who is calling the Obama administration a bunch of liars and the MSM in the tank. Hersh all but calls the American MSM propagandists and chicken to stand up to Obama. Instead of acting like objective “outsiders” the MSM instead acts in a partisan manner and tries to get their president reelected.
Remember when the MSM used to report the news, not act as a propaganda wing of the White House?
Seymour Hersh has got some extreme ideas on how to fix journalism – close down the news bureaus of NBC and ABC, sack 90% of editors in publishing and get back to the fundamental job of journalists which, he says, is to be an outsider.
It doesn’t take much to fire up Hersh, the investigative journalist who has been the nemesis of US presidents since the 1960s and who was once described by the Republican party as “the closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist”.
He is angry about the timidity of journalists in America, their failure to challenge the White House and be an unpopular messenger of truth.
Don’t even get him started on the New York Times which, he says, spends “so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would” – or the death of Osama bin Laden. “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true,” he says of the dramatic US Navy Seals raid in 2011.
The Obama administration lies systematically, he claims, yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him.
“It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama],” he declares in an interview with the Guardian.
“It used to be when you were in a situation when something very dramatic happened, the president and the minions around the president had control of the narrative, you would pretty much know they would do the best they could to tell the story straight. Now that doesn’t happen any more. Now they take advantage of something like that and they work out how to re-elect the president.

New York Times Shows Sympathy For Boston Terrorists … Where is the NY Times Sympathy for the Families of 8 year old Martin Richard, Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi & Slain MIT Officer Sean Collier?
What is wrong with todays liberal media … Do these people understand that they are part of the problem, not the solution in America?
As reported at the Daily Caller, the New York Times shows sympathy for the Boston Marathon bombing terrorists, subtitled, ‘Sympathy for the Devil’. The NY Times just wanted to make this a sob story of a young man from war torn land that just could not fit in the United States. That’s right, the Boston Marathon bombing suspects were victims according to the liberal media of mean America that would not allow them to fit in. Good grief. As stated at the Jawa Report, Apparently, the bombers had no friends because Americans have no values, and Borat never made a sequel. Sarcasm intended.
How does the NY Times shamefully write a sympathetic story about two individuals who only killed an 8-year-old boy and three other people? Really, how do editors allow something like this actually go to print? I thought liberals were supposed to be compassionate and sympathetic? I guess its only reserved for misunderstood terrorist.
Tragedy usually brings out the best in us, well at least some of us. Following 9-11, the cry became “if you mess with ne of us, you mess with all of us.” People of all backgrounds came together in unity. Following the Boston Marathon bombings, many came together as well. Heck, we had the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox come together in a way that I would never have imagined when the Yankees played ‘Sweet Caroline’ in Yankee Stadium. It was a time like no one had ever experienced in Boston, MA as the bombing left 3 individuals again, 8 year old Martin Richard, Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi and Slain MIT Officer Sean Collier. Over 170 people were injured, many losing arms and legs. So how is it that the NY Times provides sympathy for terrorists who would have done such a horrific thing? What is wrong with these people that they do not think of the others who are really the victims? Obviously, the NY Times realized the errors of their ways as they have altered the post.
Barack Obama Widens Lead Over Romney in Swing States Ohio, Florida & PA with a Skewed Sampling of D+9 and Greater (Update: Polls Questioned as Bunk)
All Polls are not created equal … some are just skewed numbers meant to fit the liberal MSM and Democrat narrative …
Yet another example of the fraud that the MSM is trying to perpetrate on the Americans people to try depress the GOP vote turnout by claiming the swing state races are over. The fraud this time is courtesy of the New York Times and Qunnipiac. It has become obvious that polls can no longer be taken at face value or believed unless one takes the time t dig down to the data sampling. However, the liberal, corrupt media complex is hoping, they are praying that a lazy America does not. As Macsmind says. knock it of NYT, the GOP is coming out to vote in 2012.
For weeks, Republicans in Ohio have been watching with worry that the state’s vital 18 electoral votes were trending away from Mitt Romney. The anxiety has been similar in Florida, where Republicans are concerned that President Obama is gaining the upper hand in the fight for the state’s 29 electoral votes.
Those fears are affirmed in the findings of the latest Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News polls of likely voters in both states, which show that Mr. Obama has widened his lead over Mr. Romney and is outperforming him on nearly every major campaign issue, even though about half said they were disappointed in Mr. Obama’s presidency.
The polls, along with interviews with supporters and advisers in the nation’s two largest battleground states, lay bare an increasingly urgent challenge facing Mr. Romney as he prepares for his next chance to move the race in his favor, at the first debate with Mr. Obama next week. Mr. Romney’s burden is no longer to win over undecided voters, but also to woo back the voters who seem to be growing a little comfortable with the idea of a second term for Mr. Obama.
The New York Times, in collaboration with Quinnipiac University and CBS News, is tracking the presidential race with recurring polls in six states. In Ohio — which no Republican has won the presidency without — Mr. Obama is leading Mr. Romney 53 percent to 43 percent in the poll. In Florida, the president leads Mr. Romney 53 to 44 percent in the poll.
The surveys, which had margins of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for each candidate, also included a Pennsylvania poll, where Mr. Obama is leading Mr. Romney by 12 percentage points.
HOG WASH … However, a funny, no a hideous and blatantly fraud happened on the way to the 2012 elections in the polling. The in the tank for Obama media has been skewing the polling sampling so bad for Obama that of course they are going to show that the Obamamessiah is leading. The latest skewed sampling by the NY Times/Qunnipiac has lead to a poll that shows Obama allegedly is up 10 in Ohio, 9 in Florida and 12 in Pennsylvania? If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.
Don’t look now but the NY Times/Qunnipiac used a +D9 sample in Florida, a +9D sampling in Ohio and a +11 sample in Pennsylvania. WOW, that is a greater sampling than the 2008 once in a life-time, anomaly election of the first black President Obama. Who honestly believes that the turnout is going to be anything like 2008? However, this poll thinks even more D’s are going to turn out.
It looks like this fact was not lost either over at Jammie Wearing Fool … “So Obama is up 9 in Florida with a D+9 sample, up 10 in Ohio with a D+9 sample and up 12 in Pennsylvania with a D+11 sample” What a coincidence, eh? Is it a close race, yes. Does Romney have a lot of work to do between now and election day, yes. However, to purposely present an obvious skewed poll as if it was fact and then have the liberal MSM run with it as news is nothing more than Obama propaganda.
Such a poll is not even worth adding to the RCP average of polling as it is so badly skewed, even when averaging it with other polls it brings up the polling number for Obama. Shameful, simply shameful.
UPDATE I: From NewsBusters, Quinnipiac Pollster Admits: ‘Probably Unlikely’ That Electorate Will Feature Massive Dem Skew. Gee, YA THINK? In order for this poll to be considered valid, Democrats would have to come out in record numbers even greater than 2008. Sorry, I have to break the orgasmic MSM’s bubble, but that ain’t happening.
Despite not believing that Democrats would have a 9-point advantage, Brown defended his organization, claiming that he and his colleagues were not intentionally trying to skew their sample size:
“We didn’t set out to oversample Democrats,” he protested. “We did our normal, random digit dial way of calling people. And there were, these are likely voters. They had to pass a screen.”
But what if that screen is simply not enough? The 2012 presidential election is unlikely to have an electorate which is similar to the ones before it. In the 2008 election, young and black voters turned out in record numbers and voted in even higher percentages for Obama. As specific surveys of these two voter groups have shown, however, both are dispirited this time around and are less likely to turn out for Democrats.
