Powers: “There is something just fundamentally really, really wrong with our media”

The Right Scoop

Kirsten Powers hit back hard against those who are trying to make this Benghazi story about it being politicized by Republicans, saying that if nobody can cover it because it’s being politicized, then nothing in Washington can ever be covered.

And to those saying that because Fox News is covering something means they shouldn’t cover it, Kirsten points out that when MSNBC went nuts over Sandra Fluke, no one took that to mean they shouldn’t cover it.

Kirsten ended by saying “There is something just fundamentally really, really wrong with our media and they need to take a look at themselves and do some accounting.”

    The media has been fundamentally transformed into obamabots. They see nothing, they hear nothing but what the most transparent president’s shills gives them after twelve revisions.

    The situation past that point about 10 years ago,Kirsten.

    It’s now even past the point of parody to an Orwellian Twilight Zone.

    And it’s been brought about by a generation of the “journalism” profession being a magnet for ideological warriors of the left who see their mission as enlightening all to the wonderfulness of Utopian,”it-takes a village” super statism.

    Too late Ms. Powers, your credibility is beyond rehabilitation. You’re furniture to be recycled at Goodwill.

    We are done the the lot of you.

    @J. Frank is correct.
    Kirsten is desperately trying to get into the lifeboat before the Titanic goes down.

    I agree totally… J. Frank and Norm. She must have got a rude revelation when Megyn Kelly read her her rights on Fox. I put Kirsten in the Juan Williams folder.

    Her comment, while welcome, is fundamentally really, really an understatement.

    It’s as if a sea of opaque cobwebs, woven by Ideologues throughout the decades of tilting evermore to the Left, are suddenly and miraculously ripped away from the once blind eyes of the truly biased “Watchdog Press”.

    Result? True reportage. Uncannily, it’s unknown to some.
