A look at how a “neutral, objective media” covers a government shutdown
John Nolte, Breitbart:
Last week, as the prospect of a federal government shutdown loomed as reality, the President of the United States told the media that he would “not negotiate” with “house burners.” And with that, the American mainstream media threw away their longstanding belief in “civil bipartisan compromise” in order to stand with Obama.
Since then, the GOP have passed two bills to avert a shutdown, both Senate Democrats and Obama have refused to offer a compromise, and now the media are attempting to make the GOP look like the crazies and the Democrats and Obama look like statesman.

12:55 — CNN Demagogues Clinical Trial Shutdowns Without Informing Viewers GOP Agreed to Fund Them
CNN’s rampage to win the shutdown debate for Barack Obama is resulting in hysterical demagoguery mixed with extraordinary lies of omission.
Suzanne Malveaux just hosted a segment about 200 children sick with cancer who were turned away from the National Institute of Health (NIH) due to the government shutdown.
What CNN refused to inform its viewers, though, is that the GOP have offered to fund the NIH without pre-conditions and that Democrats and Obama have refused to pass it.
Fact: Were it not for Obama and Democrats, these children could be receiving treatment today.
Laughably, Malveaux did mention that there was a bill out there to fund the NIH (the Republican bill), but she refused to tell her viewers that this is a GOP sponsored bill the Democrats have already threatened to veto.
Shocking propaganda at work here.
12:26 – CNN’s Carol Costello Rips Fox News
CNN’s Carol Costello ripped Fox News for describing the government shutdown as a slimdown. Costello then pretended to care about the government workers furloughed; and I say “pretend” because she has never expressed a moment of sympathy for the hundreds of thousands who have lost their insurance, doctors, hours, and jobs due to ObamaCare.
Fox News is correct about the term “slimdown,” and Costello’s use of furloughed workers to criticize them is nothing more than the kind of cheap, emotional blackmail we have seen from the left-wing CNN on issues ranging from gun control to immigration.
12:10 – VIDEO: CNN’s Creepy Use of Fourth Graders In Shutdown Politics
The video below is from CNN’s failing morning show, “New Day.” No comment is necessary other than the fact that the uniforms make this bizarre segment even more creepy.
When Chris Cuomo brings fourth graders together and asks them how they feel about ObamaCare costing hundreds of thousands their healthcare, doctors, hours, and jobs — I’ll be sure to let you know.
Do I even have to comment? No?
Thanks. Because I would have referenced Pravda. And it would have been filthy.
