How the hell is Lynn Sweet a far-left reporter? Her full-time job is sharply criticizing Obama. In fact she does so with such fervor that one would suspect she is viewing his campaign from a moderate, if not conservative lens. Bill O'Reilly on the other hand paints anybody who differs with his opinion as far-left. Isn't he really just a conservatie talk-show host? Nobody actually considers what he does journalism anyway.

Bill O'Reilly is a a gasbag. Lynn's not 'ultra-left' --she's a journalist--no. The establishment of Chicago embraced Bill Ayers. That's what some of us find kind of ironic. But that's not the point.
Reilly is a gasbag, but he's not irrelevant.
You know how many places have this crap on--the muffler/oil change shops, the beauty parlors, the dentists offices, the airports?
It would be good to have Obama at least go on and trash the guy verbally.
Instead, he's trashing Hillary, flipping her off, dodging the CBS debate he'd long ago promised to do, and instead getting his pillow fluffed by Jon Stewart of the Daily Show, Greg Mitchell of Editor and Publisher (gasp! shock! Oh the horror!) and even MSNBC (his friend in pro nuclear power shenanigans).
But, Obama supporter who thinks it is okay for a candidate or his operation to AVOID any media member, to threaten any journalist or blogger, or that it’s okay to REMOVE a journalist the messiah points out from the press pool (go to the link here and read the account of the McClatchey journalist at the Obama/Daily Show event: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2008/04/on_the_daily_show_with_jon_ste.html#comments)
needs to really think about what kind of president such a person would be.
Hilary takes the blows. And keeps on going.
No need for a sausage eating photo op—she just deals with things.
Angellight/Julie Mack, Matt, John E—and any other seemingly paid blogger for Obama HQ—just hold tight a minute.
ASK yourself why your potential employer or heart throb or whatever the heck he is for you:
Needs and has the support of the white male over 30 controlled mass media right now?
Why is CBS letting him get away right now with dodging the debate AGREED TO LONG AGO?
Could there be questions about the water MSNBC/GE nuke power plant builder is carrying for the “Senator” who got 300 G from Exelon after watering down a nuke reg bill in IL, voted for Dick Cheney’s 2005 Energy bill with 29 new nukes:
Look how they distorted the fingering of Hilary episode.

The above is the original 43 second plus IN ORDER and with the VOLUME UP as Obama mentions Hilary and fingers her.
When you open below, you’ll see a clip of MSNBC you can roll on.

MSNBC took it OUT OF ORDER and potted down the volume of Obama mentioning Hilary—didn’t even leave the nat sound up on background but also had the anchor speaking over it. She LIED and says it “took a while to get to” the flip off. THEY ARE DISTORTING THE ORDER OF THE TAPE.
And then Jon Stewart, whom I normally respect, carried Obama’s dirty water last night, running the MSNBC version of the tape.
Was there a promise that Obama would be a regular on the show and help Comedy Central’s ratings if Jon aired the distorted version? And allowed Barack to call people calling this a finger flip ‘paranoid’?
It speaks to statesmanship.
Another White boy who doesn’t get it? Michael Moore—who gave a diatribe about Hilary yesterday. Apparently he missed Hillary painting Petreus into a corner a few weeks ago—now the Bushies must bring to Congress any possible peace plan.
Brilliant!
And ignored by the mainstream white male media and the white male comedy and don’t get me started on the left establishment.
The ultra-left was run by a bunch of sexist piggies who were quite happy to let the women clean up and club house—and the women who stuck with them were more than happy to do just that. They deferred getting degrees, for the most part. And they are the opposite of Hillary.
So why didn’t Michael Moore berate Michelle over the man who the U of C system let die—similar to the examples deftly depicted in Sicko? Cuz he’s part of the “I know best” wing of the ultra left.
The American media hasn’t covered how U of C hospital let a guy die.. Here’s a link to an article which does—and it’s openly biased with its use of adjectives—but the facts itself seem solid.

So, all the koolaid drinking bloggers take note: If you’re paid to harass us on the blogs; if the guy is censoring journalists now—what will he do to journalism and free speech while in the White House?

Bill, why do you keep referring to Rev. Jeremiah Wright as anti American. Please read his bio and furthermore do some research on his church Trinity United Church of Christ and see the good work his church has done for the forgottn, downtrodden and left out citizens of America. Were you aware that he served in Vietnam as a Marine. Did you also know that after he was discharged from the Marines he re-enlisted in the Navy. Hey Bill,so was that Anti-American. If anything, he has more reasons to say what he wants than you.

Yes, that Lynn Sweet's GUILTY of committing journalism. Good thing you're a Chicago gal or Obama and his creepy henchmen would exclude you from the pool. (Thanks for posting that Mcclatchy piece--is there an url for that, Lynn?)
Hard to say how much clout Bill O'RRRRRRR carries (does he still carry a you know what?). But Ayers and their ilk unapologetically RUINED the American left. SDS was splintered as a result of the violence. And I don't rule out cointelpro shenanigans for the ones who were never prosecuted or were prosecuted unsuccessfully.
Another problem with all this is that Obama didn't tell the DNC early enough this might be a problem.
For Michael Moore, who ISN'T EVEN A DEM---WASN'T HE A GREEN--PUSHING RALPH NADER AND JELLO BIAFRO--AND YES WE BLAME YOU MIKE YOU DOLT to trash Hilary---what are we supposed to do with that?
O'Reilly is about as relevant as Mike Moore at this point. Or Oprah. Who cares?
