Finally! Obama gets something right and the State run media rushes to cover it up for him.
That's right. ABC made sure his record stays at 100% wrong on everything.
This morning, when I logged on, and the AIM home page lit up my monitor screen, there in front of my face was this story.
Now, I don't watch fluffy awards shows, especially since there are so danged many of them and I see no point in watching entertainers pat each other on the back.
Besides, they are really only popularity contests anyway. Who cares? I have better things to do with my time.
But, on the VMA (I think that stands for Video Music Academy) awards show the other day, infamous racist and so-called "hip hop artist" (as if it takes talent to recite bad poetry with bad syncopation and horrific rhymes to a drum beat), Kanye West interrupted fledgling country music star Taylor Swift's VMA acceptance speech to proclaim (in his educated opinion) Beyonce Knowles' video was better than Swifts.
This is the same Kanye West, who went off script during a live broadcast of a variety show that was put together for the purpose of raising money for the victims of hurricane Katrina. Remember that? He grabbed the mic, and angrily proclaimed, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."
Now, during an interview with an unnamed CNBC reporter, Obama casually mentioned, "Kanye West is a jackass", which naturally horrified the Obama worshiping suck-ups in the State run media.
We can't have a President saying negative things about a black man, can we?
Especially if it's the truth!
ABC's Terry Moran apparently didn't think Obama's remark would do much damage to Obama's sterling reputation, because he quickly dashed off a twitter note telling his twitterees all about the gaffe.
Obama told the truth! West IS a jackass!
An hour later, as Moran sat basking in the glow of his presumptive scoop, someone must have revealed to him that his twitter post revealed Obama had had a moment of clarity in discussing the meaningless awards show.
So, ABC subsequently released this statement, in effect, apologizing for telling the truth about Dear Leader:
"This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC".
More evidence that journalism has died in America.
