"It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign.
The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public – to dissociate himself from them. Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you think Reverend Wright loves America as much as you do?”
Watching this all at home were members of Journolist, a listserv comprised of several hundred liberal journalists, as well as like-minded professors and activists. The tough questioning from the ABC anchors left many of them outraged. “George [Stephanopoulos],” fumed Richard Kim of the Nation, is “being a disgusting little rat snake.”- From The Daily Caller
And so it seems there is now undeniable proof that not only is the Main Stream Media largely on the side of liberals, but that there is in fact collusion and conspiracy to sway popular opinion by squashing or ignoring stories that don't fit their ideal. From disclosed conversations among the membership it is plain to see that they would do whatever they had to in order to promote the candidacy of Barack Obama.
Once again the Alinsky methodology has reared it's ugly head. If you have no chance of winning, you cheat. You change the discussion. You don't answer the attacks, you create attacks of your own; not on substance, but on the character of your opponent. You call them racists and put them on the defensive. That way, they cannot compete because they are too busy answering your accusations.
This looks exactly like the attacks on the Tea Party movement. The people in power in DC do not believe in Liberty. They will stop at nothing to keep the American people enslaved through big government which will require an ever increasing amount of taxation to perpetuate. There has to be a way to expose this tactic and neutralize it.
