…but isn’t by the soon-to-be obsolete mainstream media. (NBC, ABC, MSNBC, The Washington Post, The LA Times, The New York Times):
1) First and foremost, the corruption that is being uncovered at Obama’s favorite grassroots organization, ACORN. If this were a Republican administration, and ACORN was a Republican venture, Glenn Beck, James O’Keefe, and Hannah Giles would all be winning Pulitzers for investigative journalism and uncovering corruption. However, since this is so all-out incriminating and embarrassing for liberals and President Obama, the decrepit dinosaurs of media and print (mentioned above) have felt it best to ignore…completely…even though the Senate has voted to cut all federal funding to the group by a huge margin, and the Census has also cut ties.
2) The downplaying by the media of the million or more people who showed up in DC last Saturday, and the subsequent attempts to portray all of them–and anyone else who doesn’t agree with the agenda and spending by this administration–as nothing more than fringe racists. (Not to mention Joe Wilson, who was right.)
3) The murder of pro-life activist Jim Pouillion in Michigan last week. Obama finally got around to issuing a statement. We have yet to hear from abortion promoting groups Planned Parenthood, Emily’s List, NOW, and others. Do note that the pro-life movement didn’t incriminate the entire pro-abortion industry for the actions of a single lunatic among the many statements issued in the shooting death of Dr. George Tiller. And we didn’t even blame Olbermann…
From the above link:
David Bass, a writer at the American Spectator, noticed the juxtaposition.
“A growing sidebar of the James Pouillon murder (he was gunned down while peacefully protesting outside an abortion clinic in Owosso, Michigan) is the silence of national pro-choice organizations,” he writes today.
“I ran a quick search, and none of the biggies … have issued statements condemning the murder,” he says. “President Obama was late to the party, but he did end up issuing a statement on the killing.”
“On its home page, the National Abortion Federation gives top billing to mourning the loss of Ted Kennedy and to remembering George Tiller, whom NAF calls ‘an American hero,'” he adds.
Bass notes the contrast between the responses from pro-life and pro-abortion organizations.
“In contrast, a number of pro-life groups issued statements the day of Tiller’s death condemning acts of violence in the heated abortion debate (National Right to Life and Americans United for Life, to name two),” he said. “Naturally, pro-choice groups put out their own releases. But the non-existent response from abortion advocates over the cold-blooded murder of Pouillon – a man standing up for life and exercising his constitutional rights – should give us pause.”
“Could be that one side in this debate does, in fact, value human life more than the other,” Bass asks.
