Framing the Dialogue

Update – AP – Adulterated Press

A few months ago I commented on the transparency of the lame-stream media and the Associated Press specifically as they shamelessly shilled for all things Obama and all things Democrat/Liberal.  Last week The AP’s chairman, Dean Singleton, who was perhaps channeling Chris Matthews outwardly gushed in his introduction of President Obama.  Here are a few choice phrases from the “unbiased” “journalist;”

“there is no mistaking his name and even I can’t mess it up. It’s Mr. President.”

“President Obama made history as the first minority to be elected President. Even many who opposed his election felt proud of our country as he took the oath of office. As President, he inherited the headwinds of the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. He pushed through Congress the biggest economic recovery plan in history and led a government reorganization of two of the big three auto manufacturers to save them from oblivion. He pursued domestic and foreign policy agendas that were controversial to many, highlighted by his signature into law of the most comprehensive health care legislation in history.”

“And the budget plans proposed by the President, on the one hand, and Republicans on the other hand, aren’t even on the same planet. Many Democrats believe that his agenda doesn’t go far enough and most Republicans believe it goes way too far. While we thought the 2008 White House race was rough and tumble, the 2012 race makes it look like bumper cars by comparison. Our country has become more polarized. The one percent and the 99 percent are at each others’ throats. Campaigns are now funded by secretive, multi-million dollar super PACs. What’s next? Giga-PACs? The only thing anyone seems willing to compromise on is– well, I can’t think of anything.”

“Really, who would want this job in the first place? We’re very honored today to have the man currently holding the office and aspiring for it for another term. And, with apologies to Al Green, my new favorite singer. Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States of America.”
