Covering for Obama

This should get a TON of press, but will likely get ignored, like every other negative issue with this administration
AND the reason why is already in the article Here

A tidbit for you ...

"Reporters on the ground aren’t necessarily ideological, Attkisson says, but the major network news decisions get made by a handful of New York execs who read the same papers and think the same thoughts.

Often they dream up stories beforehand and turn the reporters into “casting agents,” told “we need to find someone who will say . . .” that a given policy is good or bad. “We’re asked to create a reality that fits their New York image of what they believe,” she writes."

Reporting on the many green-energy firms such as Solyndra that went belly-up after burning through hundreds of millions in Washington handouts, Attkisson ran into increasing difficulty getting her stories on the air. A colleague told her about the following exchange: “[The stories] are pretty significant,” said a news exec. “Maybe we should be airing some of them on the ‘Evening News?’ ” Replied the program’s chief Pat Shevlin, “What’s the matter, don’t you support green energy?”
Emph mine. Makes this Shevlin look nine times the blockhead.

Seriously, Pat: if you truly can't figure out that "Hi-Tech Green Energy" should in most cases be pronounced as a homonym with "fraud," you haven't a grip on a really big story! This sort of thing is getting the support of closet and not-so-closet Socialists, Fascists, Communists and other politicosexuals, economic illiterates (lump them in with the above) and just plain dopes, each of worse description than the last, really worse choices than the Libertarian candidates. If you really want and need to be the dopes' dupe, maybe you shouldn't do that on company time.

Sounds like required reading -- if only for the high-information voter who seeks more proof how the liberal Democrats are really rather too dumb to merit their positions.
