Newt kicks some media butt!
I got my first Press Card when I was 18 years-old as a staff writer (junior grade) for the Florida State University Flambeau, and I have carried that official membership in the Mainstream Media cabal for 40 — jeez, how did that happen? — years.
I have never been more saddened about the state of a once-honorable profession than by today's savage MSM attacks not on Sarah Palin, but on her 17-year-old pregnant daughter Bristol, who I'm pretty sure is not running for any office. The MSM, led by the New York Times, the Washington Post and CNN, are doing their best to destroy Sarah Palin as part of an overall Democratic strategy...b-HO gets to sit quietly on the sidelines while the media handles the attacks. Is there anyone in America gullible enough to believe that there is no collusion between the MSM and Dem media strategists..."Don't worry, Obama. We've got this one!"
This from Andrea Peyser in the New York Post this AM:
But women on the left, who fought long and hard for the ability to raise children simultaneously with election cash, are in spasms. (Some have simply kept silent. Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton - where are you?)My Sweetie, a tough feminist and one-time activist for women's causes, turned off the television this morning. "This is making me sick," she said. "It's wrong."
The same lefty media that studiously ignored the adolescence of Chelsea Clinton can't wait to dig into Bristol Palin.
I'm not going to predict the end of the institution I once held in so high a regard, but I do believe that this campaign cycle, regardless of how it turns out in November, does mark the end of MSM's widespread influence on the national scene. They have turned away from their mission and recast themselves as an arm of the "progressive movement" in the United States, under the command of their left-wing masters. As a heartbroken holder of aa Press Card, I can't help but think it might havebeen better for the MSM to die than go forward as painted whores.
