We get it CNN. You don’t like Obama care and will report over and over and over again about how the affordable health care site is failing. Why aren’t you asking instead,” if the Republican Congress is ever going to do their job,” and ” if they plan on spending another 15 years blaming Democrats for the fact that they have failed to do right by the middle class,” or “If they feel bad at all for taking a pay check while attempting to divide our Nation?”
Clearly the Republican party did not learn a thing, as the House does not have just one committee looking into Sibelius and the healthcare.gov system but has three.
Where is Edward R. Morrow, who was not afraid to confront Joseph McCarthy and ask him how long did he think McCarthy could continue to divide America with his insanity of communist behind every tree and destroy his own party in an attempt to destroy the Democrats? How refreshing it was then to see broad casting reporters actually doing their job instead of treating the same Republicans who are the problem preventing a successful recovery as the so called problem solvers.
Are we the American people not suppose to notice that we are being brain washed on the hate against Obama care under the cover of the interview on the Sibelius and health care site? Are we suppose to be so stupid that we do not catch on that each Republican interviewed places another attack bite in against Obama care? Isn’t that just more of the same crap we heard when the Republicans shut down our government, against President Obama?
Is everyone who does not perform perfectly so the media and Republican party cannot find anything to fault, suppose to be replaced or fired by the Obama administration?
If so why aren’t the media and the Republican party placing the same standards to both their Congress and their own staffs? I don’t want to have to live in a world where I can no longer count on a two party system to do their job or a media who only finds fault and thinks they can cover for it by reporting a tid bit of humor or hand out awards for people who exemplify real courage once a year. I want to see some legitimate reporters who are asking the tough questions of the people who are responsible for the division in our Nation and the slow down of our economy, as do all people of common sense.
The facts are, the media has as much responsibility to represent the majority view in America, as do our elected officials. It is the job of the media to inform and not to criticize or speculate. The majority view said through the election polls, “We want a President who cares for us and will fight for us the middle class and the majority, and we know it is not the Conservative’s choice but President Obama and in electing him we are electing Obama care as well.”
If it had not been for redistricting in many of our States, Congress would not of had a Republican majority in Congress. Those are the facts, people, and the media needs to stand up and inform us as to why we have to keep settling for less in both Washington and in our media or start reporting on what really matters to us. If they do not then they leave us with the only option to look elsewhere for our news. I know the younger generation have already figured that out for themselves, but aren’t we all entitled to quality news service on the cable we pay for? It is not always convenient due to our hectic schedules to grab network news so too many of us have foolishly, obviously, depended too much on cable news.
President Obama and Sibelius who have said over and over again they are working to fix the system, are being scrutinized and faulted for if they use the right terminology to explain the failure, by the media who has gotten so petty over their criticism of them, they fail to see they are failing at their jobs to inform the public of real meat issues. If we interviewed you, the media and the Republican Congress, and held your feet to the fire in the same way you continue doing to the Obama Administration, could you pass the litmus test under fire with the exact perfection of doing your job without error or terminology?
If it isn’t enough that the Republicans are being interviewed as the problem solvers instead of the people who are dividing our Nation with one witch hunt after the other, they are also constantly criticizing anyone but themselves who have serious problems in their own party and House that needs fixing.
It does not take three committees to do anything in Washington, unless of course you are a politician who wants to go home and tell your constituency, I sat on the committee that really put their feet to the fire over Obama care. I don’t know if I resent the media or the conservatives more for treating the American people like we are too stupid to know the difference. Is it asking to much to have honest broadcast reporters who confront the real problems in America other than reporters who continue to find fault with the Party that struggles to find solutions for the middle class with a
Republican party who refuses to give a damn about us and cannot even get along with themselves or fix the problems for Americans, while the media instead plays into the hands of the party who constantly fail the American people?
I have never heard a reporter ask a member of the tea party libertarians yet, if they are in truth a member of the John Birch Society or why they are accusing our government of committing tyranny because our government needs to collect taxes to pay for the needs of the our hungry, unemployed, or middle class. Nor do they ask these conservatives why they feel President Obama should be held for treason, even when they know this mentality exists in the Republican party. If they do any investigating at all you can bet it will be against a Democrat or White house staff in the Obama Administration even though the Democrats have done a good job of weeding out their own while the Republicans continue to embrace their own radicals and subversive elements.
I don’t deny that there is a hand full of conservative Democrats left yet who are from conservative States who are as guilty on most issues as the Republican tea party and conservatives except they believe in Social Security and Medicare. Since we are all as tired of some in the media using them as an excuse for the media to say,” the Democrats are as much to blame,” or “the Democrats are wanting to delay Obama care,” or they say,” even Democrats are passing legislation to delay”….. yadda, yadda, yadda. I don’t think too many of us would care if they were replaced by moderate Democrats since they either straddle the aisle, don’t vote, or vote with the Republican conservatives anyway. It would be almost worth it, if it meant they were not constantly used as excuses to replace the Republican media mentality.
We should all expect the media to interview those in the Republican party, who fail to work for us, the people, while they investigate where these manifestations of ideas are coming from in the Republican party that divides us as a Nation and what is their reasoning for these ideas, by these same radicals who claim to represent us in the Republican Party. We know they won’t tell us the truth but is it asking to much of the media to make us aware that they exist and are doing great harm to both the Republican Party and Democracy?
No one ever asks the Republicans why hate groups of white supremacy are invited to the Conservative conventions when they know they are. The media is doing a miserable job of informing us, and we deserve better. This same media is using exactly the same smoke screen they used and was placed before the American voters to point the finger at Obama care, no differently from what was used to get the Tea Party members elected to the White house and our States in 2010. It is official, the media is now showing they cannot ask the tough questions that need answers or be objective either.
Aren’t they Just spokes people for a severely broken Republican party that is being ran over by a bunch of radicals yelling tyranny because the poor dears have to pay the same taxes that their families member did in the 1950′s and to pay a dime more is soooooooooooooo disturbing to them because, “Gosh darn it, it’s just not fair to be a pampered American citizen and not feel gratitude enough for it, to make certain America remains strong with a two party system where both parties work at what being an American citizen and representative of the people is intended to be.
When will this media start reporting the truth, which is,” People you may have thought you had healthcare for less but what you had were cheap over paid policies that would have covered nothing if you actually did get sick or had serious bodily injury. Instead of reporting the obvious, which is we all know the Obama care system is being over ran partly because reporters and Republicans looking to find fault with it, are helping to over-run it, and there by adding to the heavy traffic but also because the system sucks. We get it.
Why are the media not reporting on sabotage by House conservatives in our government? Why are these witch hunts by the Republicans that are happening over nothing more than human error being tolerated? Do Sibelius and President Obama both have to draw a pint of blood to prove their sincerity in their own frustrations with the failure of the system to perform according to their expectations?
I like to hear instead why the Republicans in Congress have failed consistently to do their jobs for the American people. Why don’t we have some reporting on what really should be reported on? Is cable news going to go the way of news print before they start asking the Congress the questions they need to be asking or are they just going to become one big far-right propaganda media and join Fox news? A great deal of tolerance has been asked of us and expected of us due to the crises created in our lives by the tea party and conservative Republicans, and we the people deserve so much better than we are getting from both the media and the Republican Party.
Instead of the media or CNN imparticularly grilling the conservatives over why they refuse to put the Americans first and why they refuse to deal with immigration and why they refuse to pass the farm bill and why they refuse to pass the bill that protects the vulnerable against abuse that has passed from the Senate, as responsible reporters, do we have to hear CNN every 20 minutes interviewing Republicans who get the pro-right-wing conservative agenda before the American people? Is it any wonder their ratings fall every political year?
I for one am glad that the head of our Nations health, Katherine Sibelius, knows less about computers than she knows about the health concerns of the people and that President Obama cares more about the people than he does about computers, if it was the other way around we would just have another confused and self serving political party in Washington.
Isn’t it refreshing when we take a look at the Republican Congress to know at least some one in Washington cares? That both are on our side is two more than we have seen in the conservative movement for 30 years.
We are not stupid media, we have tried to get up on, this system, that is being over whelmed by people who cannot get through, and we know it has other problems as well. We do not need to have a media adding to some of our frustrations or pointing out the obvious every hour on the hour or day after day. If the media wants to let us know when the system is working smoothly, that would be nice to know. Other wise, Enough, already! Thank you!
