The Double Dip Media

People have awakened to the fact that the MSM sold them a bill of goods on Obama. They sold him as post-racial, post-partisan, smart, and moderate. He has turned out to be obsessed with race (Black Panthers lawsuit dismissal, the Skippy Gates incident), unrelenting partisan, an intellectual mediocrity, and radical.

Now, the media, dutifully cheering for the god they created, are harping every bit of economic good news as a harbinger of recovery. But a lot of the “good news” they point to is questionable. There are fewer jobless claims week-to-week, but people are still getting laid off by the hundreds of thousands. There was an uptick in housing sales, but vultures snapping up foreclosed properties were a major driver behind that. Cash for Clunkers caused an August boom in auto sales, but if it just meant that people who were going to buy in May, June, July, September or October bought in August instead, the auto market is due for a harsh crash.

What will happen to what’s left of the public’s faith in the MSM if the recovery turns out to be as illusory as Obama’s fiscal conservatism.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    I was reading the other day that the increase in home sales is due to the first-time homebuyers’ tax credit. That is due to expire at the end of November…and may take the housing market down with it again when it does. Someone (I want to say Charles Grassley, R-IA) introduced legislation to keep the program going, but no word on whether it will pass.
