Bob Woodward, who along with Carl Bernstein did much of the original news reporting on the Watergate scandal and wrote All the President Men, is claiming that he was threatened by a high official in the White House if he continued to publish negative news stories about the president.
“Woodward published an opinion piece in the Washington Post — where he is an associate editor — saying the administration was ‘wrong’ to blame the cuts on Republicans.”
In addition to the White House denying any type of threat, Woodward’s fellow-journalists are attacking him. No one should be surprised since liberalism has set a special place at the political table for ‘journalists’ who look the other way when Democrats go astray. How many times has a story been reported about some corrupt Democrat with not a word identifying the lawbreaker as a Democrat?
“Washington is a Democratic place. Big time. And its official religion is a sort of old-fashioned, practical, patrician liberalism. John and Jackie Kennedy made Washington feel special for the first time, and the city’s elite have been trying to get back to Camelot ever since.
“This means Democratic presidents get a lot more slack than Republicans, especially if, as they all do, Democrats claim to be seeking a restoration of Camelot.”
What Woodward and the liberal media have not realized is that the President disdains them. He’s using them to further a more sinister cause. Why is the President still campaigning? Because he’s after a bigger prize. The media made a deal with the devil, and they haven’t realized yet that he does not care one iota about them.
“The president finds the political system — as constituted — unworthy and is going to smash it into smithereens. The Republican Party. The press. Even Washington. Smash. Smash. Smash."
Criminals get away with their crimes when they don’t get caught. Politicians can get away with their crimes (and they are crimes) as long as the media fail to expose them. In most cases, the media in America have been on the Left side of the moral (e.g., abortion, homosexuality) and political spectrum (e.g., increased government spending and expansion of government programs that are usually tilted toward Leftist causes).
Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan were savaged by the press. Both Bush Presidents were as well. The Clintons got a pass on their extreme political views because the media generally agreed with their policies.
We’ve watched with unbelieving eyes how today’s media have treated President Obama like a god. This is no exaggeration. We’ve seen magazine cover images of Obama with a halo around his head. A recent cover shows him as a new savior, the embodiment of the Second Coming. Actually, as the savior. Jamie Foxx said that President Obama should be known as “Our Lord and Savior.” This is a title that was almost as blasphemous as the one Roman Emperor Domitian, who ruled from AD from 81 to 96, wanted to be called: Dominus et Deus — Lord and God.”
Obama came as a savior, but he’s in disguise. What the original TV mini-series V (1983) if you want to see how the masquerade works.
Today’s media can’t admit that they were duped. Too much pride; the same sin that led to Satan’s fall (1 Tim 3:6). They’ve been involved in a grand plot to destroy America.
