There were several things that happened last week which again indicate that leftists in general, and mainstream "journalists" in particular, are the worst hypocrites to ever walk the Earth on two legs--smarmy, self-rigteous, sanctimonious hypocrites.
The Washington Post was exposed by a LOBBYIST (who knew lobbyists had more integrity than mainstream "journlaists--well, I did)--the Post having planeed a really "clever" way of making money. You will have noticed that no one reads, or watches, mainstream "journalists" anymore, which means that they are disappearing (not fast enough).
What the Post did was come up with this schme to charge people $25,000 for ACCESS to the movers and shakers (translation: Obama Admiinstration, and Democrats) in Washington in a private, "informal", "off-the-record" setting How would this be done? A Post editor (or publisher, or owner, or star "reporter"--you get the idea) would hold an "exclusive" party at a private residence, where the payng guests would have such access.
The plan was abandoned after the lobbyinst exposed it. The Post said it was only a preliminary idea that was never going to be implemented. Uh-huh. Think of just how much it says about the Post that it believes it could GRANT "access" to the Obama Adminstration--guarantee enough "movers and shakers" at a party. That alone tells you all you neeed to know about the hypocrites in the mainstream media, whether this "idea' was ever really going to be implemented or not.
Limbaugh now calls these people (mainstream media) the "state run media". It is another one of those fascist "partnerships" between the "public" and "private" sectors that Obama is trying to put together.
P.S. I like "state run media" better than Limbaugh's prewvious designation of the mainstream media as the "drive-by media". I never thought that designation was very clear or telling. "State run media" is right on, with no ambiguity in meaning.
