Many people assume that a lot of political reporters are biased in favor of Obama, but NBC's David Gregory claims the reverse is true.
In a throwaway comment, he stated that the Washington Press Corps doesn't like Obama, and the president doesn't much like them either.
"The President does not particularly like the Washington press corps," Gregory said. "And I think that feeling is mutual in a lot of respects. And so there's not a great relationship between that Washington establishment and the President."
1) If the press core does not like obama then they are just like the American people. 2) You can't tell the press core doesn't like obama by all the favorable reporting they give him 3) If obama thinks the media is unfavorable to him then maybe it's because obama's administration is so bad that even when cleaned up and made purty, it still looks ugly.
What was your role in Benghazi?(zillions of followup questions) What is your justification for killing American citizens without oversight or a tribunal? Why haven't you proposed an alternate budget to the ones you keep rejecting from the House? Why do you think deficit spending will work in this economy?(zillions of followup questions) How do you propose to pay for Obamacare? How come you have not closed Gitmo, as you have promised many times? [I'm being too hard on the poor guy] Has Tiger Woods asked you why you have kept your Harvard grades sealed?
@Denizen_Kate for starters....Mr. President:...."Why did you agree to make meaningful spending cuts in return for the $600 Billion in Tax Increases the Repubs passed in January and then totally renig on your Promise????" "How could any one trust you to be a man of your word after you failed to honor your own commitment?"
The only "journalists" that DON'T seem to like him or at least give him a pass on a consistent basis are people at fox news, and it's the left leaning people who get to decide when Fox is and isn't considered a news network anyway to fit their own arguments.
AMERICA won't ever get behind a third party candidate, and if they do, you can bet it'll be because the Illuminati or whatever conspiracy you choose to believe in had a hand in it...or the candidate is the antichrist and their charisma is just too much. :p All because we brainwashed ourselves into thinking our lives can only be blue or red.
The media didnt like GWB either. We have to face two realities here.
First is that in this digital era of 24 hour over saturation of manufactured news filler that the office of the POTUS is now and from now on will be under increasing amounts of scrutiny.
Second is that it is always easier/more profitable to focus on the negative.
So quite literally it seems like in the current structure of our society one of the prerequisite requirements for the office of president would be the insanity to willingly subject ones self to this sort of treatment.
@NTBFW Yes I know they gave GWB hell. However please dont go off on the nonsensical "no one can speak ill of the great one" schtick because has been badgered and critiqued to sickening levels. Perhaps a little more indirectly than GWB, but is that Obama's fault? Or GWBs lacking skill in deflection when Cheney wasn't around to pull his strings. Either way, Indirect grief still comes back around to its source, and pretty much the root cause of how Romney managed to muster more than 10 percent of the vote.
Journalists don't like Obama?. Most of the media coverage is slanted journalism with an agenda and very little information. But then again, regular prostitutes probably hate the johns that they go to bed with.
