Reid Blasts Media For Being Too Conservative

Harry Reid 4 SC 300x225 Reid blasts media for being too conservative

If anyone still needs proof Harry Reid is completely disconnected with reality, recent comments he made about the state of mainstream media should suffice. The Senate majority leader and bitterly partisan Democrat unbelievably complained today’s press is not leftist enough.

Speaking to Politico recently, he identified a “real shortcoming” within the media, saying journalists “are trying so hard to be fair that [they] are unfair.”

With countless newspapers, networks, websites, and other outlets dedicated to carrying the Obama administration’s water on a daily basis, Reid’s argument falls flat in the face of facts. The mainstream leftist media are, for the most part, not interested in presenting a balanced reportage of the news. While Reid accurately describes the press as “unfair,” most Americans understand that bias is in favor of the leftist cause.

Nevertheless, he sticks to his irrational diatribe by placing the blame for our current federal government shutdown squarely on the shoulders of his political adversaries.

“Democrats have had almost nothing to do with the problems here,” he said. “It’s all Republicans.”

Despite the fact his own congressional chamber — under his leadership — refused a series of potential compromises offered by the Republican-led House, Reid still has the audacity to deny any culpability.

Though his comments might resonate with uninformed partisan hacks, it is incredibly easy to expose his dishonesty.

The Media Research Center, for example, studied a sampling of news stories by ABC, NBC, and CBS, during the two weeks prior to the congressional stalemate that ended with a shutdown. Of those stories, Republicans were blamed more than Democrats by a margin of 21-0.

His vapid commentary on modern media was not the only disturbing item included in the article. The 73-year-old also confirmed he plans to seek re-election to the Senate when his current term expires in 2016.

    This shutdown shows all Americans how many nonessential jobs exist in the bloated government! And if that existed in any company then it would be bankrupt in a second! Government shut down is just not that important to the daily life of the average American, unless you are an American sucking on the government’s tit. How dumb does Harry think the average American is? Nothing is more infuriating than hearing a politician who has failed to act on a single piece of legislation to end a crisis. Reid, also known as the Duke of Do-Nothing, is just such a whiny specimen. His pronouncement that there is no time for Congress to negotiate on Obamacarelessjobkiller is both arrogant and absurd. His finger-pointing at the Republicans is even more infuriating. Memo to Harry: the House of Representatives passed legislation to help Obamacarelessjobkiller. While Reid hasn’t bothered to produce a budget for more than four years out of fear of creating a political issue that might depose him from his Lordship over DumDumville. By refusing to reach a compromise with House Republicans, Reid is playing a dangerous game aiming for complete victory through the political neutering of his foes. His plan depends upon a complicit media to blame the Republicans (SHUT THE MEDIA UP BY FUNDING ANYTHING THEY COMPLAIN ABOUT), while not mentioning the ramifications of his rejection of the white-flag-waving Boehner’s offers. The truth is that every American is likely to see their paychecks shrink due to Obamacarelessjobkiller because Reid would rather play politics in the expectation that he can affix the blame to his political foes. That’s the sad situation in Washington, D.C., where politics trumps everything else. And if you think this “fight” has been tough, wait until you see what happens with the upcoming debt ceiling and Continuing Resolution wars. Those who are faint of heart need to turn away, because you ain’t seen nothing yet.
    ReidiculousO’sBitch is nothing more that a demented moron, dementia, out of control, over his head, shows no sign of any intelligent brain activity, mall cop, give a little guy a little power, and he turns into Adolph Hitler.
