The (Un) Liberal Media

Talk about your corporate media bias against Obama, notice the opening line of the ABC OTUS story posted on Yahoo:

http://news.yahoo.com/boehner-charges-ahead-contempt-resolution-holder-155737438–abc-news-politics.html

“After a last-ditch appeal by the White House fell flat Tuesday…”  It’s a carefully worded partisan statement by writer John Parkinson/ABC OTUS News to make it appear that Obama is flailing and impotent against the might of John Boehner.  Look at the headline:  “Boehner Charges Ahead on Contempt Resolution for Holder”.  No flailing impotency on Boehner’s part there.  And the final, cliché partisan comment: “The contempt resolution passed out of committee strictly down party lines…” See? Politics as usual.  Not a word of the backstory to the whole thing to put the contempt witch hunt in perspective.

This is a textbook example of how the right wing-controlled corporate media controls and frames the message to the uneducated voter.
