    God do you think some of the reporters in today’s world are ashamed of the way they helped Obama yet?

    Another fantasy from Mikey’s handlers. The real press hasn’t reported a coverup because there wasn’t one. There have been plenty of reports of Obama confirming the whole situation was not handled in the best way possible.

    The Neocon trolls would have us believe two obvious falsehoods – 1. That the President personally directs every action at every US consulate and 2. That all career State Dept employees and all reporters at the three networks with real news coverage blindly follow all directives from the President.

    “Wow – since when have any real reporters done what the White House says? And you can’t include Fox News with Bush – they aren’t real reports and Bush wasn’t a real president.

    Real reporters put their life on the line to show what’s happening on the ground – and no president is going to stop them.

    This toon is yet another straw man implying the media is controlled by someone (other than the corporations that actually do control them)”

    And what do you call MSNBC constant harping on the greatness of Obama till he started messing up in the debates. If you want to say Bush was not a real president fine, don’t whine when we criticize Obama.

    The press is not controlled by the government. They are free to report on anything they want.

    I remember when Bush was in office and the press would report the running totals of deaths from the Afghan war. Stopped doing that after Obama was elected. I remember when the press would jump gleefully on any story that even hinted at corruption in the Bush administration. We’ve got machinations, cronyism, and unconstitutional shenanigans pouring out of the Obama administration, and aside from Fox News, most media establishments don’t bother reporting on them: green energy awards to failing companies owned by top bundlers, stimulus money laundered through political buddies, secret meetings with representatives of terrorist groups in the White House, Mr. Obama signing waivers that violate federal laws for groups of people when he wants their votes, Mr. Obama waging war against non-green energy through his deputies in the EPA, Mr. Obama waging war against religion through his appointees in HHS, Mr. Obama raising taxes on the sly while claiming to cut them, Mr. Obama starting a war in Libya, Mr. Obama supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and ignoring Iran, and most recently, Mr. Obama ordering the military to stand down and let American officials and soldiers be murdered. Not only should we vote the bum out, we should jail him for his crimes.

    “..(do not).follow all directives from the President…” AGREED.
    Coordination is impractical. People that are loyal to The ‘O’ are doing damage control in their own way. For example, look at that ‘Rice’ person going on TV shows to say ‘There was no Terrorist issue’.
    It is sometimes hard to tell when ‘spin’ turns into Lies.

    “…Ramirez is…” Wow. I can tell you are taking this very seriously. Relax. There are plenty of Toons that are protecting The ‘O’. Enjoy the fact that most Toonists are on your side.

    1. The lame stream media IS lame, because almost all are OWNED by conservatives. Even if they do hire some “liberal” staff, most are overtly conservative in their reporting, and editorial control of stories. Yes, MSNBC is openly liberal, but NBC is right of center. ABC is extremely conservative, as is CNN and CBS.


    My other “sensitivity” is how often our people got killed in Viet Nam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, because those “love boat journalists” like Geraldo shot their mouths off. We got INTO Iraq because “journalists” and their bosses did NOT properly show just how big "W"’s lies were. William Rivers Pitt and Scott Ritter laid out IN A BOOK prior to the invasion just how big the LIES were! They were far outweighed by the “right wing press” keeping the lies going, even with regard to downplaying the demonstrations around the world, and the fact that Bush actually IGNORED the U.N. mandate, AND he violated the law Congress passed that required him to come back to them BEFORE proceeding with actual “hostilities”.


    No, the press in the U.S. is NOT overwhelmingly liberal, but quite the opposite. And, as I lost friends due to “reporters” either getting in the way, or lying, or just “blowing it”, I DO have “a problem”.

    What a stupid cartoon. Is this based on any fact at all?

    I was watching Black Hawk Down and I couldn’t understand why we didn’t just send in a couple hundred thousand troops to rescue our guys in Somalia. Nothing ever goes wrong when we escalate our military involvement in a situation that we don’t really comprehend. Vietnam, Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan all prove my point.

    No cost is too great to save our troops, as long as it goes to my pals who are defense contractors. I don’t know why the vets think they can just lay around and not work once they get home, though. We need to stop coddling them.
