Blind media

To the Editor:

There are none so blind as those who refuse to see. This common adage conspicuously applies to the media’s disgraceful, sycophantic reporting of Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, resulting in the question that should be on the minds of every American: Why do the media seem to incessantly overlook the problematical aspects of Obama’s presidency?  This includes but is certainly not limited to:

• Household income has plummeted by 8.2 percent; poverty has risen by 3 million; health insurance premiums have increased by $2,370 annually; the number of people on food stamps increased by almost 12 million; and 1.227 million fewer people remain working since Obama took office.

• As poignantly described in a recent documentary, the entrenched anti-American and socialist persuasion he received from his mentors – Frank Davis, a card-carrying communist, and Jeremiah Wright, his America-hating pastor, among others.

• Foreign policy failures including Benghazi-gate; Iran’s incessant development of its nuclear capabilities to destroy Israel; his apparent apathy toward meeting Netanyahu; leaked secrets regarding Israel’s use of Azerbaijan thereby undermining their military strength against Iran.

• The Obama campaign chimerically stating GM was saved when they still are on the brink of bankruptcy.

The media is doing a disservice to the American public, damaging our national and financial security by not presenting all the facts. Why this travesty remains unchecked is left to individual scrutiny, but it’s doubtful the media will open its eyes. Meanwhile, we are left to ponder Romney’s “uncaring,” yet veracious remarks about 47 percent of our nation’s government dependency.
