You know, just when one thinks that the Obamawhore media can not get any more worshipful for their Messiah, The Dear Leader, President Obama, it appears that why yes they can.
Tucker Carlson over at The Daily Caller in this expose on the Obamawhore media "watchdog" group, Media Matters, has this little story of how one of the flunkies, Karl Frisch, sent out a memo that, to cut to the chase, laid the ground work to take down the Fox News Channel.
I kid you not my friends, this was their strategery to do just that:
“Simply put, the progressive movement is in need of an enemy. George W. Bush is gone. We really don’t have John McCain to kick around any more. Filling the lack of leadership on the right, Fox News has emerged as the central enemy and antagonist of the Obama administration, our Congressional majorities and the progressive movement as a whole.”
“We must take Fox News head-on in a well funded, presidential-style campaign to discredit and embarrass the network, making it illegitimate in the eyes of news consumers.”
“We should hire private investigators to look into the personal lives of Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors, senior network and corporate staff.” .
“We should look into contracting with a major law firm to study any available legal actions that can be taken against Fox News, from a class action law suit to defamation claims for those wronged by the network. I imagine this would be difficult but the right law firm is bound to find some legal ground for us to take action against the network.”
“An elaborate shareholder campaign. This can take many forms, from a front group of shareholders, to passing resolutions at shareholder meetings or massive demonstrations are [sic] shareholder meetings.”
“We should also hire a team of trackers to stake out private and public events with Fox News anchors, hosts, reporters, prominent contributors and senior network/corporate staff.”
“If we need to buy tickets for events that these people will be speaking at, so be it.”
"Mailing anti-Fox News literature to their homes and placing yard signs and outdoor advertising in their neighborhoods.”
“Fox is likely to retaliate. Media Matters should find ways to protect the privacy of our employees and the security of our office.”
Whiskey? Tango? Foxtrot?
Where does one begin?
Well, the obvious is that Media Matters is really scared of FNC. So scared that they were ready to pretty much do anything and everything to bring the network down.
But what fascinates me is the opening graph in this memo.
The fact that the Obamawhore media was actively looking for enemies. That they had such little confidence in their guy that they looked for an enemy. Or a very big fish in FNC. And why did they look to FNC as an enemy?
The fact is that the left looks at FNC the way many conservatives look at the major media. As an enemy. The Obamawhore media really thinks that FNC gets it marching orders from the Republican National Committee.
FTR, I did not think that the Leftywhore media was coordinating itself.
Until Team Obama came to Washington.
With the leftywhore Jornolist of Ezra Klein to the open fawning of the Dear Leader, President Obama, by what should be objective journalists, and now this, one can not help but think that the Leftywhore media has decided to throw any pretense of objectivity out the window.
Take some seemingly random situations and one can see that hmm, maybe there was as much as a coordinated effort between Media Matters and the White House to try to discredit FNC.
For instance, how about former White House aide, Anita Dunn? Remember her tirade against FNC on third-place "rival", Cable News Network? She went on to lambaste FNC as some arm of the GOP.
HA! If only.
Oh, don't forget that Mrs. Dunn somehow was able to wrap Red China founder Mas Tse-tung and Mother Teresa as two of her favorite political philosophers.
A lot more about this manipulation with the White House can be found here from Ed Morrissey at HotAir.
Remind me when FNC and conservative media coordinated the line of attack with the George W. Bush White House?
Oh, I know you will cite some radio talk show hosts visiting the White House. Well too bad that did not go over all that well. Many of these hosts turned against then President Bush pretty quick on many issues.
The fact is that Media Matters, the media Axis of Evil in Washington, D. C., New York City and Los Angeles, and what I call collectively as the Obamawhore media have been thoroughly exposed.
And guess what?
FNC is still going strong, grounding two legacy media outlets, MSNBC and CNN, into near oblivion.
The problem with these groups is that when there is another point of view, people will watch, read or listen. And yet they have a real hard time accepting the marketplace. That the very free media, free from government control and or manipulation, can not be so if they are in bed with the people that they may like.
Thus The Daily Caller in exposing Media Matters has cemented and made it clear.
There really is an Obamawhore media.
