I am getting very tired of hearing about the so-called “biased liberal media.” It seems like every time our news outlets report on something and it doesn’t bode well for the Republicans, then they’re a bunch of pro-Democrat liberals.
Get over it folks, other than Fox News (clearly Republican) and MSNBC (clearly Democratic) there is no “biased liberal media.” They are only telling us what is happening.
I didn’t hear the Republicans complain when the media bombarded us for two months about how poorly Obamacare was doing or how botched up the Affordable Care Act website was.
I didn’t hear the Republicans complain when the media spent a month reporting on the so-called scandal at the IRS when it was “harassing” right wing “social welfare groups.”
I didn’t hear the Republicans complain when all we heard for a month was how the president’s administration caused the death of three Americans in Benghazi. But let them tell us about Chris Christie’s staffers causing chaos on the George Washington Bridge, then all of a sudden they are, according to Kathleen Parker (“Maybe Christie can survive,” Jan. 13), the “two-faced, pro-Democratic media.”
No Ms. Parker, they are not. They are just reporting the news.
Which leads me to one more rant before I close.
Don Wheeler (“What has our beloved nation turned into?” Our Readers’ Opinions, Jan. 12) wanted to know what the big deal was over causing people “to be late for slopping down biscuits and gravy.”
Well when public employees spend public money and use public facilities to slow down traffic, slow down commerce, effect local economies and potentially put people’s lives at risk for three days just to punish a political rival, it’s a very big deal.
Those people need to be investigated and if found guilty they need to be held accountable and made to pay for their misdeeds.
