WHY DOES MEDIA TOLERATE OBAMA’S LIES?
by JOHN NOLTE

The media loves to come up with catchphrases that boil down who they are and how things operate in the world of politics. Phrases such as, “It’s the cover up, not the crime,” or, “It’s the lie that gets you.” Both of these statements have always proven true, at least for every Republican under the sun, but most certainly not for Barack Obama.
According to Obama’s chief Palace Guard, Ben Smith, biographer David Maraniss has uncovered at least 38 lies in Obama’s biographical accounts of himself. Moreover, since New Media started vetting Obama this year, two other epic whoppers told by the President have been discovered: Bill Ayers was not
This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who is a professor of English … He is not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.
We’ve also learned that Barack Obama was a MEMBER of the New Party, which completely contradicts what his campaign told the media in 2008.
And yet, as we have already see, the media doesn’t at all care about being lied to. The unspoken excuse they’re using to sweep 40 lies under the rug is, “Well, this is about the past.” And yet…
Though they proved fake, “newly discovered” documents from then-President Bush’s time in the Texas Air National Guard threatened to consume his reelection bid. Why? Because the phony documents made it look as though Bush had lied about his time there — decades ago.
And let us never forget the unrelenting fact-checking surrounding Sarah Palin’s autobiography, which was released long after the 2008 election.
But Obama can lie and lie and lie and lie and lie and other than making an obligatory effort to report it, the President pays no price for lying, not even while looking the media straight in the eye while doing so.
Not a single mainstream journalist today is doing what we know ALL of them would do if Obama were a Republican: exactly what they attempted to do to Marco Rubio.
First off, the media would be outraged and indignant over being lied to. And what would follow is a perfect narrative storm that would demand Obama either correct the record, prove his assertions, or bridge these factual discrepancies.
On a daily basis, press briefings would become Thunderdome as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was inundated with demands that the President come clean and clear the record. And you can bet the cable networks would be filled with stories and talking heads explaining to us why this is relevant in 2012.
A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
Russian Communist politician & revolutionary (1870 – 1924)
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Joseph Goebbels (Propagandist for Adolph Hilter)
“It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true…You are what the media define you to be.” (Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Watson).

ANDREA MITCHELL SMEARS ROMNEY WITH DECEPTIVE EDIT
By Dana Loesch

MSNBC continued its tradition of leaning so far forward that its corporate head became lodged in its corporate backside today with a story on Mitt Romney and Wawas. Andrea Mitchell attempted to use a deceptively edited clip to persuade her audience that Romney is out of step with the average voter.
Sooper Mexican compared the edited clip with the full Romney remarks. They clearly show Romney was amazed at the ways in which private sector competition motivates businesses, a fundamental that the government lacks. Mitchell deliberately omitted this point to falsely portray Romney as a fool.

Another example of how ridiculous the media is in their uncompromising struggle to distort the truth in order to make sure Obama wins and Conservatives lose.
Today it’s being widely reported that Romney had a moment were he was amazed at the existence of WAWAs, a convenience/gas store, and the electronic touchtone ordering of sandwiches. They have spun this to make it seem like he’s out of touch – BUT THE VIDEO IS EDITED DECEPTIVELY:
