MEDIA “HYPE-OCRISY”

 

Hypocrisy is an interesting phenomenon.  There are few things more universally detested, yet ironically, acknowledged as a universal component of our own human nature, than hypocrisy.  We are all hypocrites to one extent or another.  Most of us, when we are honest with ourselves, can admit that we are less than perfect and have at times fallen victim to being hypocritical.  Perhaps that is why we tend to judge those who delude themselves into thinking that they are not tinged by the dirty residue of hypocrisy more harshly.  Just look at the feeding frenzy that is going on in the media these days regarding Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

 

The media is all over this story circling like sharks that smell blood in the water.  Of course all Americans, especially the good citizens of Illinois, should be outraged at the hypocrisy of Gov. Blagojevich.  Here is an elected official who has sworn to uphold the Constitution on the United States.  Especially as the governor of the “Land of Lincoln,” one would think that he would be particularly devoted to preserve the unique democratic principles espoused by that great president that: “government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the face of the earth.”  It’s no surprise that so many people are shocked at the brazen arrogance of Blagojevich in using the power of his office to simply appoint whomever he wants to the senate seat vacated by Pres.-Elect Obama.  With little or no regard for the will of the people, and little or no regard for competency and experience, Blagojevich was poised to simply make an arbitrary appointment to this Senate seat.

 

What a disgraceful betrayal of both the public trust and fundamental democratic principles, right?  Well, of course, but wait just a minute.  Isn’t that EXACTLY what the main stream media did in collectively deciding that Barack Obama should be appointed by them to become the next president of the United States.  Wasn’t it the media who, with little or no regard for the will of the people, and little or no regard for competency or experience, arbitrarily create, package and sell Sen. Barack Obama to the American people?  A junior senator from Illinois who never sponsored or even co-sponsored a single piece of legislation.  A junior senator who never chaired or even co-chaired any congressional committee or sub-committee.  A candidate with literally no record of any political accomplishment whatsoever.  If this sounds a little unfair or extreme to you, please do not just take my word for it.  Click on the following link and read for yourself how the widely respected, independent Pew Research Center verified that an astonishing 70% of all registered voters (Democrats and Republicans) stated that the media was in the tank for Obama just two weeks prior to the election.  Pew Research Center.  What else could anyone call this unprecedented media bias that a full 70% of all registered voters identified other than: MEDIA “HYPE-OCRISY.”

    I believe there are many unethical Republicans in office as there are many unethical Democrats. The difference is that the main line media points out the conservatives (mostly Republicans). If they are Democrats like seemingly unethical Blagojevich there is very little mention of his affiliation. However the main line media always points out the Democrats that are trying to discipline him.

    In the case of good ole Blago in Illinois and Patterson in New York, the word should not be appoint, but ANNOINT.

    Corruption is in both parties, but mainstream media has only one target. The funny thing is, Constitutionally, the Democrats will in the end have no choice but to seat Blago’s annointed choice. Will they admit they were wrong – never. That’s not in their handbook.

    It will be interesting to see how the Donkeys scrutinize all of Slick Willy’s donors when the Hillary confirmation hearings commence. I’d love to see them treat her like they treat Republicans – wouldn’t that be rich?
