You've probably already seen this but I just watched it this morning. This clip of 100% complicit, integrity-free liberal "reporters" and "journalists" in action so perfectly illustrates what's wrong with them that it will live on for years. They couldn't have produced a better teaching tool on the fraud that is the "mainstream" media if they had tried.
My favorite part, in addition to CBS's Jay Levine viciously turning on Kelly, Chicago-style -- "Let him finish or I'm gonna deck ya!" -- is when ABC's Charles Thomas indignantly tells Kelly he's not a "reporter." A "reporter," it seems, is a guy who swans around with the powerful, enabling their ends with utterly non-critical, content-free publicity.
Read Dana Loesch's exactly-right comments, and Big Journalism's follow-up, in which we find Politico's Ben Smith metaphorically digging in William Kelly's garbage for something -- anything! -- with which to discredit him. I guess that's another thing "real reporters" do: attack anyone who asks inconvenient questions of the powerful liberals they desperately seek to advance and protect.
These lapdogs are so contemptible.
Update: And now, via Michelle Malkin, we have this admission from David Brooks -- Obama told him a year ago that there were no shovel-ready projects!
DAVID BROOKS: Yes. Well, I shouldn’t have confessed this. He said this to me off the record about a year ago. But it hasn’t…Oh, ha ha ha! Perpetrating fraud on the American people is so deliciously droll!
JIM LEHRER: Off the record? So, then you can’t talk about it.
DAVID BROOKS: Yes, because Peter Baker is a better than I am, because I couldn’t get him to go on the record with that thing.
JIM LEHRER: He said this to you a year ago?
DAVID BROOKS: It was obvious. I mean, you are trying to build a stimulus package. And when they were trying to build it, believe me, they would have loved to have filled it with infrastructure jobs. But the projects just didn’t exist. They couldn’t do it. They couldn’t find them.
Michelle has the video:
Here’s the video if you have the stomach to watch these yammering chuckleheads make excuses for themselves and for Obama on taxpayer-funded public television:Not me. I don't want to lose my breakfast.
