Attack on Religion? I think Not

Clumsiness & stupidity, yes.

What is the Obama administrations greatest error in the continuing flap over so-called “reproductive health care”…?   Simple – they foolishly based their statutory language on laws currently on the books in many states.   Technically, not an entirely bad approach.

Why was that foolish?    Easy answer – most folks are completely ignorant about what their State’s laws are.   There is no news outlet – cable or local – that focuses on such detail ( at least not with any regularity).   All the news does is work to get us upset over ‘National Issues”.  Better ratings that way.

And then how does the News bear its responsibility to inform the Public?   “Not well at all” is the kindest way to put it.

Example from February 10: Wolf Blitzer, the deer-in-the-headlights Star of His Own Show on CNN, listened politely to Rick Santorum say that not only was President Obama attacking Religious Freedom, but that the President was “attacking Freedom Itself!!!”   What was the Wolf’s answer?   Did he ask the former Senator to back up such inflammatory rhetoric with any Facts?

Nope.   He said “Thank you for talking with us.”

Useless.   With Reagan, Clinton, W, and now President Obama, the pathetic press has sat on the sidelines and allowed an escalating war of words and images to be propagated without challenge.   Investigative Journalism?   Give me a break.   They are so afraid of losing access, of offending either party, that they allow virtually anything  to be said on the air, under their nose, on their byline.   They have become nothing more than large outlets.

Which leads me to this – what do you call an outlet that only spews crap?

Exactly.
