The racially-motivated DC Media’s rush to ClarenceThomas Republican presidential frontrunner Ben Carson is starting to crumble under scrutiny. As their respective stories are slowly but surely debunked by New Media, naturally, the DC Media is circling the wagons to hide said Crumbling. Politico’s false West Point story is still being bandied about as actual news by CNN and MSNBC. The same is true with the horrible anti-Carson reporting we saw from The Wall Street Journal and CNN.
For the last 6 days, the very same DC Media that chose to bury and ignore more than 30 inaccuracies in Barack Obama’s biography has, though lies of omission and commission, attempted to disqualify Ben Carson from the presidency based only on conjecture and innuendo. Carson’s only proven sin is that he’s beating Hillary Clinton in all the polls and that he is a black man who dared stray from The Left-Wing Thought Plantation.
Finally, prior to winning the 2008 presidential election, no less than The Washington Post discovered that Obama lied about the role the Kennedy family took in helping his own family. In an effort to craft a mythological Camelot Connection, Obama falsely claimed the Kennedy family paid to for his “Kenyan father to travel to America on a student scholarship and thus meet his Kansan mother.”
Two whoppers from an inexperienced, insurgent presidential candidate running in large part on his biography.
Was the result a massive DC Media Narrative questioning Obama’s honesty?
Nope. Never happened. Not even close.More.
Reality check: Carson’s true story is deadly to progressive government’s PR, which is all that legacy mainstream media are these days.
Obama’s lies, by contrast, are helpful because they cement the idea that Big Government Helps People.
It’s fine with legacy MSM media if a black guy succeeds, as long as success depended on progressive policies, not just on him, who he was/is.
They aren’t being “prejudiced”; they understand their job and are doing it.
The people who take such media seriously either need the “narrative” it offers, not facts, for psychological reasons. Or else they are benefiting from the misrepresentations, knowing what they are. In other words, they are either proles or ‘crats*.
