Democrat Media Monkeys




I'm indulging myself with this total throw-away I stumbled over last week.  Here's the part that grabbed my attention.
Thanks in part to his rhetorical prowess, President Barack Obama has been credited with restoring prestige to the presidency—in contrast to his predecessor, George W. Bush, who was often derided for sounding vacuous.
The false predicate, a left-media device, is set.    Obama restored prestige to the presidency  after it was trashed by Bush. 

Really?
Let's start here ..

The official left-media  Fact Checker steps in)

Lately, there’s been a rumor swirling around about the current location of the bust of Winston Churchill. Some have claimed that President Obama removed the bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and sent it back to the British Embassy.
Now, normally we wouldn’t address a rumor that’s so patently false, but just this morning the Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer repeated this ridiculous claim in his column.  He said President Obama “started his Presidency by returning to the British Embassy the bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office.”
This is 100% false. The bust still in the White House. In the Residence. Outside the Treaty Room.
Later:

The White House was forced to apologize late Tuesday after incorrectly insisting that it still had a Churchill bust on loan from the British government that in fact was sent back during the presidential transition between George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Why does it matter? Because the return of the Churchill bust has become a symbol in the eyes of Mr. Obama’s critics that the president does not hold the same values as Britain’s iconic wartime prime minister or adequately appreciate the “special relationship” between London and Washington.

Etc., Etc. As we speak, the only allies Obama, and the United States,  can count on world wide, are nations controlled by various factions of  al Qaeda style Islamos.

Oh, the "study" found that the quality of presidential rhetoric have steadily declined with media reliance on sound bites.  Bush and Obama were about the same.  As if anyone will read this.  Or care.   Carry on.

*Fact Checker  (along with Saturday Night Live) was the official agency the media relied on to settle accuracy disputes during Obama's 2008 campaign.
** I only skimmed this article, but found no mention of Ronald Reagan's speaking ability; Bill Clinton was singled out.

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”

I guess the narcissist-in-chief was upset over Churchill's take on socialism when he referred to it as "a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. It's inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." Over a million people attended dear leader's last inauguration and only fourteen of them missed work.
