Presumptive nominee," Obama, for 2 years has chaired the Senate committee, which oversees Afghanistan. Embarrassingly, Obama was pressured to visit the Mid-East by McCain who criticized him for not having visited Iraq in over 900 days, not consulting with Petraeus, yet boasting that he has a preeminent Iraq War and foreign policy. Obama's visit to Afghanistan is the first in his entire life. He will subsequently stop in Iraq. Shockingly, Obama has never even attended a single meeting in the Afghanistan oversight Senatorial Committee in the 2.5 years he has held office. Notwithstanding, the media is covering the McCain inspired trip like it was a "monumental world tour" by a world savior. What I do not get is that with an empty resume, no experience whatsoever, abject dereliction of his senate committee responsibilities, why is the media touting this visit with any importance? Obama's only unusual attributes are that he is black and charismatic. His visit does not in truth represent a "global historic" event. Has the media completely lost all of their integrity?

If any of you think it's bad now just wait until the Dems get their CAMPAIGN REFORM passed. That will be the beginning of a major shift towards communism.

Media Integrity = an oxymoron. When (unfortunately, quite likely) the Obamessiah gets in we're screwed. Can you say Socialism? GROSS.

If this wasn't such a tragedy in the making it would be almost funny.  I'm afraid a lot of people will be dazzled by the media image of Obama just like a lot of Canadians were a long time ago by Trudeau.  For your sake I hope not!

TOO LATE !!!!                    For him to be the running party candidate the Dem's are too arrogant (foolish & stupid) to do the right thing. They'd rather run him against McCain and know they'll loose than ever back up. I can say that I'm a registered Dem. Shocked Shocked Shocked

Media integrity??????  You mean they are not telling the truth?
 
You got to understand that they are telling the truth. Well at least the truth as they know it.  You don't get throught journalism or comunications in college without dealing with people who supply the kool-aid.  By grad school you can make your own supply of the stuff.

Well put,
 
Like us mythbuster fans have heard. "I reject your reality and substitute my own".
If they report it enough it becomes fact right!

It's a good thing I had connection problems after lunch when I first read this thread.  I had my statire level  switched to NO2 and was uncomfortable in how Orwellian my post was after hitting send.  Heck we have had to deal with Black=White, not to mention that a lot of some animals being more equall to the other.
 
Joe's post made me think of Jesse Jackson rescent comments. After reading Joe's comment, I gained a empathy for mister Jackson, thought respect gets a bit strained.  Jesse has traveled the world and met with world leaders.  He has a closet full of tee shirts mixed in the the skeletons. How can we not love Obama? What are you a RACIST? IT's sorta like Dr Frankinstein (Frank-in-StEin Wink) getting to meet the monster he has created.  Picture Jesse being the center of an all Black cast of a hybrid of Young FrankinstEin, Rocky Horror and a sprinkle of B movies...Fro Mix in a few Kennedy's...
 
The Media has created a "monster".  They seem to forget that we as a people have to live with this stuff.  They view it the same as a hollywood movie.  That's because they are the bit players and are trying to get better roles.  Those of use who might stand in the way of it are racist or some other convient label.

We are the serfs in the Wizard of Id and they ( the Media)  have to help us truly understand what we need to understand so that they can help us make the right decisions for what is best for us.   I feel so grateful to them..!!     Thank you... !!!!   
 
That's why I read the American Rifleman and watch the BBC.
