Sunday's Washington Post brought the news that the book "Collusion" by MRC president Brent Bozell and MRC director of media analysis Tim Graham debuted on the Washington Post Best-sellers List for nonfiction at number seven. You can join the crowd at our site mediacollusion.com.
Last Sunday, The New York Post published a new op-ed by Bozell and Graham about how Obama can denounce the march of "phony scandals" and the media don't call him on it:
He's formed such a close bond of collusion with reporters that they tell him his second-term ideas are all great: "A lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of you've said before; some of them sound great, but you can't get those through Congress," he said Wednesday.
Obama makes it sound like the reporters are all thinly disguised Democratic strategists who advise him on how to succeed, but they all worry about those horrid Republican obstructionists in Congress who hate Obama (perhaps because they're racists) and want him to fail as a president.
Reporters aren't embarrassed enough by the president's boasting of his chummy reporter-advisers to sound like independent journalists. The networks engage in outright censorship of information that could damage Obama's gloriously, prematurely decorated place in political history.
