Let's Hear It For Our Two-Faced Media: AAAAH!

"Now that White House 'Green Jobs Czar' Van Jones has resigned, what's next?

Inevitably, the American mainstream media - ABC, NBC, CBS, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, et al - must be held to account for sitting on the sidelines as this major story kept building without them, went viral on YouTube, and then became so large that a key appointee of President Obama was forced to step down.

For most people in this country, the resignation was the first they had heard of Van Jones. For this sin of journalistic omission, there’s institutional media blame. Bias is too tame a word for the utter shamelessness on display: Only Republican scandals – real and imagined – matter.

And it's not just those the Democratic-Media Complex dub as 'mobs' or 'tea baggers' that are taking notice. Diminishing audience and evaporating subscribership reflect widespread consumer dissatisfaction. Eventually, the money will run out.

But until then, the growing alternative media of Internet and talk radio and a burgeoning mass of justifiably angry Americans will make every effort to expose the sham that is mainstream journalism."


-- Andrew Breitbart, stating exactly what I've seen out there - I called a liberal friend to crow about Van Jones' resignation and he had no idea who he was, just as he also knew nothing of Barack Obama's vice-presidential candidate John Edwards' sexual affair with Rielle Hunter during the election season - which is just the way the mainstream media wants it, in what's referred to as The Washington Times.
