Considering the impact the coming November elections could have on the federal government, it seems to me that the media is almost bored with the topic. Yes there are stories and coverage, but the feverish coverage shown in the past seems lacking to me. Democrats won control of the House, Senate and Presidency in 2008. They lost the House in 2010, then lost their super majority in the Senate, but somehow kept the Oval Office.
I still wonder how Romney lost, but credit it to the media advocacy of Obama. They were still praising his vision on foreign policy while the ruins in Benghazi were still smoldering. They accepted and championed the lie it was linked to an anti-Muslim video. There was no scandal because the media would not report it as a scandal.
Now today with Iraq and Syria poised to fall, Libya still in turmoil, there is still media cover for Obama. A respiratory virus common to Central America is hitting nearly every state in North America, but the media see’s no link to Obama’s open border policy. Instead, the only worthwhile event is Ebola, which cannot be blamed on the POTUS. Republican demands for a travel ban are met with accusations of racism.
I don’t expect any major shift because of the election. I think the old media is killing itself with blatant dishonesty that is apparent to all but the most partisan and gullible. If/when the New York Times, ABC, NBC & CBS news die, I will both celebrate and morn their passing.
