Obama, Obamanomics & the Bias MSM: 173K New Food Stamp Recipients, 96k New Jobs & 368K Leave Work Force
Welcome to Obamanomics and the corrupt main stream media complex where suddenly the poor, down and out and homeless have suddenly disappeared from the media reporting. As reported at Breitbart.com, when the GOP is in the White House, the homeless and poor appear everywhere, when Democrats and especially Barack Obama is in the Oval Office, the poor suddenly disappear like magic. The Obama reality is 173,000 new food stamp recipients, 96,000 new jobs and 368,000 give up and quit the work force. Yet, no one in the MSM media wants to talk about it.
The media’s been even worse with Barack Obama. Not only have the homeless vanished from news coverage, but so have America’s poor. But as NBC’s David Gregory made clear, if you even try to bring up the record number of food stamp recipients Barack Obama’s failed policies have created, you’ll be labeled a racist.
What is a cold, hard fact, though, is that in the last accounting available to us (May), America’s food stamp rolls increased by 173,000. In the last jobs numbers available to us (August), only 96,000 new jobs were created.
Yes, this is the record of a president running for reelection with the slogan “Forward.”
Do your job, mainstream media, people are suffering.
Time to see the bigger moral world above your personal desire to see Obama reelected and report the truth.
But as the MSM and NBC’s David Gregory have made clear, if you even try to bring up the record number of food stamp recipients Barack Obama’s failed policies have created, you’ll be labeled a racist (Video).
47 million people are on food stamps, 1 out of every 6 Americans are on food stamps
Imagine, just imagine if a Republican president had the same economic numbers as Barack Obama does presently and the poor trending track record, they MSM would open every news segment is the headlines “FAILURE”!!! Ever segment would be devoted to the poor economic conditions and they would put a face to the plight. Instead, sadly we may have reached a point in this country where the MSM has tipped the scaled and become strictly a propaganda tool for the LEFT and whose sole purpose is to lie to the American people rather than inform them.
Remember when Thomas Jefferson said the following in 1787? Sadly, the MSM no longer covers news topics and issues as it was intended to do. They do so only if it furthers their political, bias agenda and protect and run cover for Democrats and Barack Obama. The MSM was supposed to to inform and protect the people against government, all government no matter what party, not be in bed with government.
The basis of our government being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.
However, sadly and even more cynical … Barack Obama looks at a new food stamp recipient as a potential vote in his column. Another hooked American on a government giveaway and dependent on the federal government. What a sad state of affairs for America.

Shameful: International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge Refuses to Allow 1 Minute of Silence for Israeli Victims of the 1972 Munich Terrorist Massacre at Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics; However, NBC’s Bob Costas Will
SHAMEFUL, DISRESPECTFUL AND GUTLESS ACT BY THE IOC …
International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Jacques Rogge reiterates that he refuses to allow a one minute moment of silence during the Opening Ceremonies of the London Summer Olympics for the Israeli victims who were killed by terrorists during the 1972 Olympics Munich massacre. Simply SHAMEFUL. On the 40th anniversary of the tragedy that saw 11 Israeli athletes and coaches by Palestinian terrorists, Rogge stated that it’s not “an atmosphere that is not fit to remember such a tragic incident.” Really, or is it discrimination?
Like it or not Jacques, this is a lasting image of the Olympics
International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge won’t budge: There will be no minute’s silence for the Israeli victims of the 1972 Munich massacre at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics.
Rogge rejected the latest calls Saturday for a special observance to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the murder of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches by Palestinian gunmen at the Munich Games.
“We feel that the opening ceremony is an atmosphere that is not fit to remember such a tragic incident,” Rogge said.
The IOC has come under pressure from politicians in the United States, Israel and Germany to pay tribute to the slain Israelis during Friday’s ceremony.
The Late Great ABC’s Jim McKay … “they are all gone”
Could you be any more DISRESPECTFUL, not the right atmosphere? It is exactly the right atmosphere as a reminder of what happened 40 years ago. Instead the IOC would rather keep their collective heads in the sand and pretend like it never happened. It is exactly the correct moment to put it on the world stage for all to see and to condemn violence, murder and terrorism. But no, instead Rogge comes up with excuses to have it remembered in other less public ways. Can you say GUTLESS! What’s the matter Jacques, are you afraid you might upset radical Islam? Or are you afraid you might upset and antagonize Muslim countries participating in the games? And if such countries would be upset over a one minute remembrance of the slaughter of athletes and coaches who were just participating in the Olympic games, what does that tell us about so-called mainstream Islam?
The IOC’s logic to all of this is if a murderous, terrorist act occurs in the woods and no one is there to see the remembrance, did it really happen? However, it would seem that all are not going to keep their heads in the sand and pretend like it never happened. NBC’s Bob Costas intends to remember the slain Israeli’s during the Opening Ceremonies and call out the IOC.
ABC News 1972 Munich massacre coverage
“I intend to note that the IOC denied the request,” Costas said. “Many people find that denial more than puzzling but insensitive. Here’s a minute of silence right now.”
Costas appears to be joining the efforts of Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon and Ankie Spitzer, whose husband was among the Munich victims. Ayalon said the IOC refusal of his request to commemorate the victims was “unacceptable.” Spitzer, meanwhile, has been petitioning to have a moment of silence during the Opening Ceremony, to no avail.
“The IOC’s refusal is pure discrimination,” she said.
A note to the IOC, like it or not but the 1972 Olympic massacre of Israeli’s is part of your past. If you want to embrace the good of the brilliance and skill of Russian gymnast Olga Korbut (video) from the 1972 Olympics, you also have to deal with the bad. To simply ignore it does not trivialize those that were killed, it trivializes you. By pretending terrorism did not take place during the Olympics does not make it goo away, it shows your weakness and acceptance. If you pretend that it never happened, you open yourself up to it occurring again.
The moment of silence should have been done and the victims names should have been named, no different than what they do in the United States for the victims of 9-11. Since the IOC does not have the respects or guts to do so, we shall.

Another Misleading MSM George Zimmerman 9-11 Call Edit Costs a NBC News Employee Her Job Reporting on the Trayvon Martin Death
EDITGATE … Lilia Luciano, a Miami-based NBC News correspondent is the latest to lose her job in the NBC MSM George Zimmerman 911 call editing scandal in the covering of the death of Trayvon Martin. Yet more selective editing to shape the story for their own narrative.
Lilia Luciano, a Miami-based NBC News correspondent, is no longer working for the network, TVNewser has learned.
Luciano last reported for NBC News March 31. Until that point, she had been reporting mainly on the Trayvon Martin story. Sources tell TVNewser Luciano’s dismissal came after an investigation which also led to the firing of a seasoned NBC News producer over a similar, misleading edit. In a story for the “Today” show on March 20, Luciano used part of the George Zimmerman 911 call in which an entire phrase (italicized below) was taken from a later part of the conversation:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good or on drugs or something. He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male.
Dispatcher: Are you following him?
Dispatcher: Okay, we don’t need you to do that.
As stated by Brent Bozell does any one think that the three low level firings by NBC are an acceptable answer to what NBC did in out right falsely reporting on this case and purposely editing to misrepresent the facts?
NBC has now fired three people from two different offices over at least two different edits of George Zimmerman’s now infamous 9-1-1 call prior to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Both edits were clearly designed to portray Zimmerman as a racist while raising tensions in an already volatile situation. This latest firing from NBC once again goes unexplained. NBC’s actions vindicate the Media Research Center’s original point that NBC’s two-sentence (non)apology was an insult, and that this is a network out of control.
The truth has been withheld from NBC’s own viewers now for more than one month. Do the network executives at NBC think that this is acceptable? What about the board and shareholders of Comcast? Is it acceptable for a news organization to consciously and constantly lie to its viewers?
Exploitation of Trayvon Martin: NBC Claims that Edited George Zimmerman 9-11 Audio was a “Mistake Not Deliberate”
NBC has been caught in a huge media scandal in covering the death Trayvon Martin. NBC allowed a deceptive and edited tape go to air that implied that George Zimmerman was racially profiling Martin and providing the assumption that because he was black, that is why he was suspicious. However, NBC was caught red handed and had to admit that the tape was edited from the original 9-11 transcript. Last week NBC fired a producer in response to the scandal.
Now NBC is saying that the edited George Zimmerman tape was a “mistake, not deliberate”. Seriously? As stated at Weasel Zippers, if you believe this one, then they have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. We might also have some swamp land in Florida as well.
NBC News’ decision to air an edited call from George Zimmerman to police in the moments before he shot Trayvon Martin was “a mistake and not a deliberate act to misrepresent the phone call,” according to the president of the network’s news division.
Capus confirmed a previous Reuters report that an internal network investigation had determined that a producer made the editing error, and that the network’s editorial controls – including senior broadcast producer oversight, script editors and often legal and standards department reviews of sensitive material to be broadcast – simply missed the selective editing of the phone call.
NBC Fires Producer of Edited, Doctored and Misleading George Zimmerman 9-11 Tape … Misleading, IT WAS A LIE!
SHAMEFUL … MISLEADING? WHAT NBC PUT FORTH WAS A FALSEHOOD AND A LIE … WHEN MEDIA BIAS TURNS INTO A FLAT OUT MISREPRESENTATION OF THE FACTS AND REPORTS A LIE …
We have always said that the MSM would never lets the facts get in the way of a good made up story. However, this might take the cake. NBC News knowingly produced a doctored audio tape that they knew would draw the ire of many and fan the flames of racism while boosting their viewership as they exploited a tragic news story.
An NBC producer has been fired who took part in the production of the doctored and misleading George Zimmerman tape. Sorry, but this tape was not only misleading, it was deceptive. The audio segment in question was shown on NBC’s “Today” show on March 27, 2012. The audio included George Zimmerman making comments regarding Trayvon Martin saying, “This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.” However, what NBC broadcast on air was nothing of what actually happened as they took Zimmerman’s word out of context and edited out the 9-11 dispatchers questions. NBC had opened an internal investigation after it was shown that the edited and inflammatory audio segment that was played resembled nothing of the original 9-11 tape between the operator and Zimmerman.
NBC News has fired a producer who was involved in the production of a misleading segment about the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.
The person was fired on Thursday, according to two people with direct knowledge of the disciplinary action who declined to be identified discussing internal company matters. They also declined to name the fired producer. A spokeswoman for NBC News declined to comment.
The action came in the wake of an internal investigation by NBC News into the production of the segment, which strung together audio clips in such a way that made George Zimmerman’s shooting of Mr. Martin sound racially motivated. Ever since the Feb. 26 shooting, there has been a continuing debate about whether race was a factor in the incident.
What is unbelievable is that NBC refused to give the producers name. This guy and NBC does a hatched job on Zimmerman and fans the flames of racism in the death of Trayvon Martin, but he gets to remain anonymous. Are you joking?
Sorry, but a half-hearted apology and the firing of a producer is not going to cut it. Not when the doctored audio tape made it all the way through NBC execs and on air. An audio tape that was intended to show Zimmerman in a racist light. As stated at NewsBusters, “until the network releases the name of the person and explains its theory that the edit was not deliberate, its credibility is still under question.” Agreed. Since when have we ever heard of a media outlet editing a 9-11 call? There would be no purpose other than to do it purposely.
Listen to the VIDEO below of the FULL 9-11 call from Zimmerman along with others as well
This is what the actual conversation between Zimmerman and the 9-11 dispatcher actual read.
ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he’s up to no good, [begin ellipsis] or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining, and he’s just walking around, looking about.
911 DISPATCHER: Okay, is this guy, is he white, black, or Hispanic?
ZIMMERMAN: He looks black.
Listen to the below VIDEO and hear the doctored NBC News audio
According to reports, the people with direct knowledge of the firing characterized the misleading edit as a mistake, not a purposeful act. Um, that is actually hard to believe. Why would some one take out dispatcher questions and only have Zimmerman speaking making comments that would make one assume that Zimmerman racially profiled and hunted a black man down. All NBC did was fan the flames of racism. That was the effect of their doctored audio tape. How could that have not been purposeful?
Look for a defamation of character law suit to come from this.
