Those In The Know Changing Their Tune Too Late To Matter

Well, well, well. All kinds of people are coming out of the woodwork suggesting Hillary Clinton oughta give Obama a run for him money. From the recent Chicago Tribune Editorial by Steve Chapman in which he exhorts Obama to step down, and Clinton to step up, to Dick Cheney, who not only suggested she would have been a better president (no duh) to suggesting she should run, to James Carville suggesting Obama should “panic,” the country seems to finally be waking from its Kool Aide induced haze.

And it is pissing me off. Seriously. I don’t know if it is the off-the-chart pain levels I am enduring, or what, but it is pissing me off that – all of a sudden – the people who were in a position to make clear how inept Obama was, is, and would be, failed to convey that message adequately. No, not Cheney – I mean the media and Democratic political pundits who should have known, and most likely did know, better, but went-along-to-get-along so they could keep blathering on CNN, MSNBC, or whatever channel would have them. They rode this wave of a created back story of who Obama was, one that did not match the REALITY of who he was, by his handlers and string pullers rather than DOING THEIR JOBS, and now, NOW, they are coming out saying, “oh, yeah – Hillary would have been SO much better” after calling her, her husband, and her supporters a bunch of racist gun and Bible toters who could barely get dressed in the morning. All I can say is, BITE ME.

Ahem. Sorry. I have no patience or tolerance for this crap right now. Clinton would have been the best, they knew it then, but sexism trumps all any day of the week, and they sure as hell were not going to support any old (!) woman over a biracial freshman senator. Nosirree bob. Even as I write that one sentence – a freshman senator beating out a woman who had a vastly superior resume was treated like crap by these people in her own party AND in the media. And now they come crying saying it should have been her? Please. They CHOSE him over her. (Photo credit: blackagendareport.com)

It is not like the information wasn’t out there for all the world to see. They chose to ignore it, they chose to cover it up (thank you, JournoListers and the LA Times to name just two more), they failed to vet, they failed to fact check, they failed to keep their emotions in check, they failed, failed, failed at their jobs, and now we are all paying the price. For instance, the NY Times, and other outlets, repeatedly have pushed the meme that Obama is even keeled, even tempered, and unshakeable. It is a pile of horse manure. They have just ignored his snippyness, arrogance, and short fuse because it did not fit the image they – the media – were crafting for him (no doubt at the insistance of the Davids, Plouffe and Axelrod).

The truth was out there, though. Consider the opening paragraphs of this story from a reporter who liked Obama, but was professional enough to be honest about him in his extensive piece, “Barack Obama And Me“:

It’s not quite eight in the morning and Barack Obama is on the phone screaming at me. He liked the story I wrote about him a couple weeks ago, but not this garbage.

Months earlier, a reporter friend told me she overheard Obama call me an asshole at a political fund-raiser. Now here he is blasting me from hundreds of miles away for a story that just went online but hasn’t yet hit local newsstands.

It’s the first time I ever heard him yell, and I’m trembling as I set down the phone. I sit frozen at my desk for several minutes, stunned.

This is an extensive, in-depth piece, which goes into Emil Jones, Obama’s “kingmaker,” and so, so much more. But one other piece I cannot resist putting in since I have mentioned is his fake Southern accent (grrrrr):

My view of Obama then wasn’t all that different from the image he projects now. He was smart, confident, charismatic and liberal. One thing I can say is, I never heard him launch into the preacher-man voice he now employs during speeches. He sounded vanilla, and activists in his mostly black district often chided him for it.

My point, and as Ellen Degeneres would say, I do have one, is that the information was there, from this author, to John Kass, Lynn Sweet, and others in the Chicago area, but the MSM refused to upset the apple cart, supporting the myth of Obama, not the fact of Obama. All I can say is, thanks shitloads for that, you worthless hacks. Look where your complete and utter lack of professionalism got us. Told you I have no patience for this right now.

And for the love of all that is holy, stop pushing Hillary NOW. The time is long past,t he damage done. She is not going to run. She has made that abundantly clear. Party before country, she will not go up against her boss, and even if she did, it is too late. She has already been touting his policies all over the globe. If she now claimed she didn’t support any of them, but hawked them anyway, well, do I really need to finish that thought for you? I didn’t think so.

So, yeah – I have had it with the handwringing, coulda, woulda, shoulda crapola the MSM, and some political pundits, are now peddling. They should have done their homework before the last election instead of crying about it now that the damage is done. They have no one to blame but themselves, and believe you me, they deserve all the blame they get.

Here’s a thought – maybe it isn’t just those in DC who deserve to be liberated from their political positions, but the vast majority of “journalists,” too. I am sure there are a whole bunch of real journalists out there looking for jobs. Wouldn’t that be a refreshing change? Journalists who did the groundwork, did their HOMEwork, and didn’t insert their opinion into their stories? Oh, yes – now THAT is some “change” for which we can “hope.”

Until then, just spare me the current MSM/pundit outrage at what should have been. Clinton was the best choice, bar none, and you backed the wrong horse in that race for the most superficial of reasons. Admit that, acknowledge that, and for heaven’s sake, DO YOUR JOBS already. And stop pissing me off.

How about you?

    Entitle this comment as One Larry Got Right All Along. And coming from this Republican, that’s quite an admission. Nevertheless, I do think that in 2008, the far left faction took control of the Dem. Party, and, in keeping with the practices first developed and used by Uncle Joe Stalin, the communists managed to hoodwink most mainstream Democrats into voting for him. For my part, I was at that time busy saying that the Dems were way too focused on their hatred of Dubya to know what was happening. I mean, even if W were the dumbest sob on the planet he or McCain would STILL have been far better for America than the closeted neo-Marxist. You wouldn’t have believed the derision I received from Democrats and liberals, but it was the usual off point crap that focused heavily, and indeed, maliciously on W’s intellectual shortcomings. They also thoroughly enjoyed portraying me as a Bush buttboy and lightweight who wouldn’t know communist from first base. Oh how they laughed … hahaha :-D “This rube actually thinks that Obama is a Marxist?” So, for those folks, Larry, let’s share the honor of telling it as it really is first. And high 5s for the years of faithful service to the truth:

    BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, 44TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, WAS, IS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE A MARXIST WHO DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO THE OBJECT OF DESTROYING THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC CALLED THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.   

  • Warehouse553

    I do believe that Hillary still wants to be President.  She won’t save Obama or the current Obamacrat Party.  Her only chance is for Obama to lose badly in 2012.  She has no connection to any of his disastrous economic policies and although his foreign policy is chaotic that may not matter.  People care about headlines, not details. Bin Laden is dead, Gaddaffy has been dethroned, Egypt will be some kind of democracy, etc.  These can be spun as achievements.  Spying on the UN if she did it or not, may not hurt her as the American people support that.  She would be in a good position in 2016 but only if Obama loses.

     

    • Cathy in Ks.

      I’m thinking the same thing.  I do support those who are trying to draft Hillary to challenge Obama in 2012 but I don’t think she’ll do it.  She might run in 2012 if Obama says he won’t seek re-election but I also see that as highly unlikely. But I do see her biding her time until 2016 and continuing to build up her resume for the next presidential run.  It’s very possible in 2016 she could win.

  • Anonymous

    I’m thinking that both parties have made such a mess of the country that now they’ve decided to give the presidency to a woman…let her be the one to do the big clean-up, if possible. If she fails, that will shut women up for awhile about a woman president. If she succeeds, the men can take it back.

  • Helia

     ” They [MSM] are still enchanted with this worthless piece .” I doubt they are “enchanted” at all. In fact, I doubt they ever were. MSM staff actually know more, not less, than the average person, about any given “celebrity” they are commissioned to champion. The fact that promote what they know is false and even dangerous, in order to keep their funding, is why they are so often called “whores.”
    It’s just that “MSM” is controlled by those–Soros names comes up a lot, but there are others–who have business interests to promote, not those who interested in true journalism. So MSM will continue to pretend to be “enchanted.” They cannot but do what they are told–they are fighting for their lives. The internet has opened the doors of information and we can do our research. What baffles me is how people wait to hear what the WaPo, nor NYT, or CNN has to say.

    Always love to read you Rev. Amy.  And too many were silent.  But a point on James Carville.  Don’t forget that while Donna Brazil got to sing Barack’s praises and claim she was undecided, the Obama campaign launched their attack on Carville and Begla insisting they were closet supporters of Hillary and this attack got both pulled as commentators on CNN during the primaries.

    I would say to all of these ‘Johnny come lately’ pundits, ‘You want me to believe you have had a change of heart, and genuinely believe Hillary would be better?  Fine.  But first, admit all the ways you should have reported to us back in 2008, Obama would be so much worse.’

  • Wbboe

    Rabble: do you think they get it now?  I do not.  I think things have cascaded to the point that they can no longer defend an indefensible position–and that is about it.  Therefore it is now in their interest to promote Hillary to insulate themselves from the consequences of having installed Obama, and to give them–they hope– access and influence with the administration that succeeds their light of love.

    Thus, if Hillary steps forward and succeeds then they can take credit for supporting her.  If Hillary steps forward and fails because of the mess he has created they can say see it would not made any difference whether we supported him initially–which is a GODDAMNED LIE. 

    If Hillary were president today, we would have jobs domestically and a foreign policy we could be proud of. We would not be what we are today thanks to messiah obama–the laughing stock of the world–not trusted by our friends, not respected by our enemies–a paper tiger.  How sure am I?  Is 100% sure enough?  Because in that case, there would be in the firmament of heaven a goddess who the world respected and the international order could revolve around. 

    Alas, Obama has done so much damage that it will be well nigh impossible to put Humpty Dumpty together again anytime soon–and time is of the essence.  Our enemies grow stronger by the day, and we grow weaker thanks to the work of big media who forced this false god down our throats and now are looking for cover.  Fuck em.

      I think they are just jumping on the bandwagon. Sure, some of these folks may have secretly felt this way back in 2008, but that was not acceptable. Nothing but full on Obama-mania would do. So, maybe they are testing the waters to see if they can speak out.

      But it is way too little way too late.

      As you said so well, Obama has done so much damage to this country, we will be hard pressed to get out from under this rock anytime soon…

    RIght up my alley RRRA….Great Again…
    As I said in another post , it does seem thre some of the media is starting to see the light. This could be seen with the Stewart video Larry posted.
    Yet, Im not really sure which light it is…
    Right now I think its more like the America citizens are seeing the light. This means they are closing their eyes and ears to the crap that the media is and has been haning them.
    This means that the light the media is  seeing is called the rating light.  Since the viewers have started seeing through the Obama garbage, the media has had to start reporting a bit more truthfully about what is happening in DC….

      I dont think the media is going to be able to turn around fast enough.
      This is not  just a case of covering up for a poitician.  Not only did and has the media covered Obama and anything found on him, they have literally cremated anyone remotely against him….Palin, Fox News, Hannity, Beck, Hillary, Bill, the tea party and the list goes on.
      At the rate that Obama brought down and is bringing down out nation I dont think the American Citizens are going to forget what the media did and is still doing.

      Perfect, HelenK!  Here’s the one that’s been going thru my mind:

      A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the airThe monkey thought that everything was on the squareThe buzzard tried to throw the monkey off of his backBut the monkey grabbed his neck and said: “Now listen, JackStraighten up and fly rightStraighten up and fly rightStraighten up and fly rightCool down, papa, don’t you blow your top.Ain’t no use in divin’ What’s the use of jivin’Straighten up and fly rightCool down, papa, don’t you blow your top.”The buzzard told the monkey “You are chokin’ meRelease your hold and I will set you free.”The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye and said”Your story’s so touching but it sounds just like a lie.Straighten up and fly rightStraighten up and stay rightStraighten up and fly rightCool down, papa, don’t you blow your top.”(instrumental interlude)”Straighten up and fly rightStraighten up and stay rightStraighten up and fly rightCool down, papa, don’t you blow your top.”

        And when the buzzard realized he could not get rid of the monkey on his back, he knew he would have to go cold turkey.  No more freeloading Democrats, no matter what.  Or something like that. The moral: don’t allow a monkey to crawl up on your back and put you in a stranglehold.

  • Seattlegonz

    I can relate, Amy. I hold journalists most responsible for what happened. After all, people rarely get to see and interact with candidates for themselves, so it’s the media narrative that matters. If journalists had any ethics they would dispassionately report the news and investigate stories following where they lead. That’s why it was notable when Cronkite got choked up when Kennedy was shot, because it was so unusual for a reporter to be affected by the news he was reporting on.

    We need to make it a crime to be a journalist and violate the ethics of journalism. It’s a crime for me, as a therapist, to violate the ethics of my profession…it should be for them as well.

      Outstanding comment, Jennie. YES, it is this whole sense of the woman (“mother”) coming in to clean up the mess everyone else made, with very little apology (if any) for having made the mess, and just expecting her to do it. That’s crap. Even if she wasn’t carrying Obama’s water now, it is not her job to cover for this inept, unqualified, buffoon of a president who got where he is in no small part to a willing co-conspirator in the  MSM. Even if she ever did acquiesce, and join the fray, she would HAVE to know (as any woman should) that they would turn on her in a skinny second, making all manner of sexist statements abt her, and more.

      Ironic that she and the Brazilian president are talking abt more women getting into politics when they ones that do are treated so disparately here. And Hillary, of all women, knows that.

    “It is not like the information wasn’t’t out there for all the world to see.”

    …add to that when listening to the talking heads being interviewed, they pull a “Mission Impossible” and disavow all knowledge of what was painfully obvious right out of the “bone headed” gate. I was digging around for the interview that Obama did about the Rezko Manor with the Chicago papers…It’s has been stuck in my head for a week now….only I would have to watch it to get a grip on why it’s stuck there.
    Stay pissed off Rev. Amy, that first article was a peach the first time I read it and still is today. Hillary said as late as Thursday that “who could have anticipated, the negative effects of the “Arab Sprung”..” (paraphrasing). Weeeeellll. Hillary knew full well. It actually pains me to know LJ actually briefed her on a related topic, him coming away thinking Hillary was well prepared and “crazy smart”. She knew. Publicly saying the opposite while having given counsel to the counter, not having it taken seriously by BO, must really make Hillary want to puke. I saw Bill Clinton out there on “God Morning America”, spinning up tubes 1 and 2, with that twinkle in his eye that was the same as the one he had testifying about what “is” is. He was out there saying all this crap about the jobs bill, he knew it was crap and had a internal shit eatin grin on his face while saying it. It was hysterical, to think Bill and Hillary Clinton have the intentional fortitude to be call racists and still hack this posers wares. Yea, I am gonna stay pissed off until at least November 5th 2012

      Outstanding comment, Teak, and what a memory you have. You nailed it. Yes, Hillary could have easily predicted what  was REALLY going to happen with the “Arab Spring,” a misnomer if I ever heard one.

      And yes – I just cannot believe why the Clintons are going through so many twists and turns to support Obama after all he did to them. Is it really just “politics as usual” to call people who have a proven track record with the AA community racists, and treat the woman like total crap because she’s a woman? If so, “politics as usual” should be a thing of the past. There comes a point when one’s sense of integrity just HAS to take center stage and speak out, speak up, and fight back. Instead, they caved, and now act like Obama is so great. I find that to be disturbing in the extreme.

      I’m with you, friend – I am staying pissed off, too.

        I guess I’m just too much of a realist, and too focused on getting Barky “unelected”, with as little damage as possible.

        If Bill can add his financial wisdom to an administration that matters, my attitude is the same as Hillary, during Hillarycare.

        If we can get someone knowledgable to concentrate full time on helping the President on a specific correction point, why not take advantage of such an opportunity?

        And some of the things have me wondering about the black community as well, particularly that which I hear on AA talk radio.

        There is loyalty to Barky, although much less than before, but a lot of betrayal as well.

        I wonder if the black vote could turn into a wild card if conditions continue to worsen….but I’m not about to stop and allow their concerns to call the shots this time.

        There is so much that still needs to be done.

    Oh, Rev. Amy, how I wish you could hear me applauding from New Hampshire! I was such a strong supporter of Hillary in 2008. I campaigned for her, donated, wore her t-shirts then PUMA shirts. I was devastated when the nomination was ripped from her and handed to a marionette. But I agree it’s been too much water under that bridge. My naivete was squashed in May, 2008. I won’t be fooled again. 

    As a fellow Southerner I am so glad you mentioned that fake accent that seemed to materialize at the most advantageous times. It would set my teeth on edge, too, and send me into a red rage. My husband has no ear for accents and couldn’t understand why I’d get so upset. I tried to explain that, in addition to being completely false, it was an insult to people who really spoke with a Southern accent, and it demeaned his audiences by assuming he could fool them.

    I don’t see any Dem. strong enough to launch a challenge to That One, so as best I can tell the Dems are screwed. I’ll postpone my happy dance until they realize it.

      Portia, don’t EVER forget who did it to Hillary: the communists, the far left, the Marxists, neo-Marxists, the “neo-colonialists,” by whatever name. They are lying traitors and not just to the Democrat Party. Communism NEVER just goes away. I highly recommend that you read Ann Coulter’s defense of Senator Joe McCarthy. You will learn a whole lot about American history from that era, and  come away with a whole new perspective. McCarthy was right! THERE WERE COMMUNISTS IN THE GOVERNMENT. Unfortunately, media leftists like Edward R. Murrow, the ultimate leftwing media hero, made mincemeat of McCarthy through a deliberate campaign of smears and lies. Today, McCarthy’s very name is synonymous with demagoguery, the very tool that Murrow and others employed ever since to bash true patriots like McCarthy and his assistant, Roy Cohn. The communists did it to Hillary in 2008, and given another chance, they’ll do it again. As a Democat, you probably recoil at the thought that Ann Coulter could be correct about anything but read her on this point, and you will see that she got this one right.

    Rev. Amy– For those who doubt there is an afterlife, your post proves that there is.  How else could you channel Sam Kinison?  I share your pissedoffedness because, as you point out, everything we know now about Obama was known when he was running for office– inexperience, incompetence, no real love of this country, but the subject was off-limits for the entertainment industry that poses as news organizations.  He was elected because of two isms– ageism and sexism and a deep-seated fear held by so many that if they dared be critical, they would be (and were) labeled as racist.  I left the Democratic Party because of its outrageous treatment of Hillary Clinton, and probably because of that, I was deeply disappointed when she became an Obama enabler.  I continue to see that same sexism in the Party’s relentless attacks on Palin and Bachmann.  For me, there is no turning back, whether Hillary Clinton runs again or not.  I am truly sorry you are in pain, but if that helps Sam to visit more often, maybe it’s not so bad.

      ROTFLMAO – you are too funny, HLM! And thank you! I am right there with you in your description of why you left the party. I totally understand, and share that sentiment. It was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, but it was also the right thing. I realized the DNC was far from being the party it claimed to be. I could not, in good conscience, support a party that sanctioned theft, misogyny, and unethical behavior across the board. Nope. Not even close.

      And yes – deeply disappointed that Clinton chose Party, Obama, over country. That was not the person I thought she was. I believed her when she said she was fighting for us. Something happened back then – maybe someday those facts will come to the surface – but whatever it was, she gave up mighty quickly, and moved to, as you said, enable Obama. I just can’t abide that.

      I can stand on my own without you
      So go back in your shell
      I can do bloody well
      Without you

    You’re not alone Rev Amy. I also get really annoyed by people who suddenly realize Obama is not all that. I mean like, no sh&t, Sherlock! The writing was on the wall! Your mistake cost the whole country and destroyed the Dem party. What do you want from me? Sympathy? I don’t think so.

    And yes, let’s stop pushing Hillary. That’s actually got some sexist over tones to it. She’s not your mommy and she’s not going to come clean your room for you. You made the mess, you take responsibility for it. Again, no sh&t Sherlock, Hillary would have been a better choice, but you had your chance and there are no do-overs.

    RRR I hope your recovery is coming along successfully.  Don’t let the negatives get to you.  I have been through a rough 5 years dealing with NH Lymphoma myself and have remained positive through the hole process.  With my wife next to me supporting me all the way through it.  1 auto bone marrow and my 2nd by a donor transplant.

      Holy smokes, Hank – I had no idea you were going through so much. I echo Cuz’n Cindy when I say, bless your heart! And please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so glad you choose to spend some of your time with us.

      (As an aside, my surgery is this coming Thurs. I will make sure y’all know how it goes.)

        Thank you!  Not even chemo brain has stopped me from login on to NQ, my favorite site to get informed.  Good Luck with your surgery!  My wife just had her 2nd knee replacement.  But I in return have been here for her.

    No use cryin’ over spilt milk.   If BO were to abdicate, or resign or whatever it would take for him to call it quits, then Congress and members of the Cabinet would take over the Presidential Adminstration Capability.   The rules are pretty clear, even when Kennedy was assassinated it didn’t take very long for Johnson to take up the reins.
    In that case, Johnson was so weak that he went ahead and did exactly what Kennedy wasn’t doing, and for waht  Kennedy was gotten out the way for doing or saying.   This time, if position in the WH became vacant, then Biden would step in unless of course he was being indicted for constitutional violations along with Obama, or for conspirace with the Obama Administration.   But the country would survive, it just has to happen ASAP before the monetary system finally goes belly up.
    Greece’s Papayandrou or whatever his name is, is stiing down with the Troika as we speak, and signing the pink slips for all government workers who have been hired during the past two years, and ending all social services.   That is going to go down like a LEAD BALOON.
    Hold tight everybody.  The Greek people will certainly not put up with that and the Merket/Sarkozy plan for EU Governance is looking like it
    is also like a lead balloon.
    Lead balloons all round.

      Tragic.  Such a beautiful people, to be put through this.

      I only wish they could have pulled an “Iceland” and took their nation back.

    I still think that even today, the MSM would do no differently.  They are still enchanted with this worthless piece of human garbage. The ignorant media will follow this idiot off a cliff, extolling his insight and greatness all the way to the bottom !!  I listen to Bob Bechtel, and I want to shoot my TV.  This ignorant ass clown still worships this POS !

      They are just like him.  Ivy Leaguers.  All into themselves. They read their lines from a teleprompter.  He reads his from a telepropter. Others do their thinking for them.  He invites them to his parties. They go and tell him how great he is. His press office writes their headlines.  They do not have to work hard.  Their real estate values have gone up, their investments are secure, life is good—and they could give a flying fuck about anything else.  All they need to do is sell their souls as journalists and that is easy enough done.  Practice makes perfect.  Why anyone should listen to them is one of life’s great unanswered questions. We should treat them the same way they treat us–with condescension.

    Perfectly written Amy. The same people now reporting had this information at their disposal and not only refused to do their job as impartial journalists by investigating and informing the public but suppressed relevant information as well. They see the writing on the wall and know how history will judge them so they are now trying to distance themselves from what they wrought.

      Spot on, Catherine. It appears to be a collective CYA. If, by some unfortunate happenstance, he should take the presidency for a second term, they will find a way to dismiss the reactions against him as just a bunch of racist Tea Party people. But if he loses, then they will claim they told us so. Spare me.

      The article was great thanks. However the comments were dominated by some of the most misogynist neanderthals I have ever heard. It made me ashamed to be a conservative. By the way I am a male making this statement my screen name doesn’t make that clear. 

      • Scottymac54

        Looks like they’ve all been swept clean, LOL!

        They HAVE to do that.  It’s Breitbart.

        They get their comments from the same gene pool “The Blaze” and “Moonbattery” do.

    I’m sorry for your pain, R3A.  I can take just about anything, anything, except chronic physical pain.  I pray for you.  And best wishes for a great surgery and speedy, full recovery.

    Do not apolgize for expressing your pissed-off-ed-ness.  Don’t do it.  It would have taken something really bad, though, to finally throw back the covers on what the U.S. gov’t had become and now, just like the three major scandals that are pressing down on this admin, the timing seems about perfect for a fourth — the corruption of the media.  Because this story can’t be told without exposing the media’s complicity.  And just like Attaaaack Waaatch!!, no one can say they just didn’t know because then they will admit they were either idiots or part of the media cover up.

    Maybe I passed being angry about a year ago.  Now I’m just gleeful.

    You said it all, girl! And brilliantly!
    A pox on all of ‘em and the horses they rode in on—-Wait, not the horses. They didn’t do anything,,,.But you know what I mean.

     I think some of the main-liner media are feigning disgust, too, just because it’s popular. They have to be trendy, ya know!
    Thanks as always, for such a grrrrrreat post!
    Feel better soon…and if not, write another post–LOL!!!

      LOL, thank you kindly, Cuz! And it is so funny you mentioned that expression – that is exactly what I was thinking in my head, and even said to my partner, but yeah – it isn’t the horses fault!

      I think you are right abt the trendiness as well. Is it really too much to ask for journalists to at least try to stop being pundits and do their damn jobs? Evidently, but still – one can hope, right?
