Obama: Media Should Only Report Only One Side of the Story

By Warner Todd Huston | August 9, 2012 | Breitbart News

According to The New York Times, President Obama is a “voracious consumer of news.” But he’s not at all happy with a media that has engaged in a one-sided love affair with him. He has harsh words for the media establishment.

Times writer Amy Chozick herself seemed quite star struck by the President giving us paragraph after paragraph filled with evidence of how impressed she is with Obama’s reading habits and media interaction. But for the President, the feeling isn’t mutual.

You see he’s mad that the press keeps giving the other side so much coverage.

While Mr. Obama frequently criticizes the heated speech of cable news, he sees what he views as deeper problems in news outlets that strive for objectivity. In private meetings with columnists, he has talked about the concept of “false balance” — that reporters should not give equal weight to both sides of an argument when one side is factually incorrect. He frequently cites the coverage of health care and the stimulus package as examples, according to aides familiar with the meetings.

The Me-Myself-and-I President says that the press should just stop giving that “factually incorrect” side all that coverage. He is right and that is all the press needs to report. There is no “other side” to an issue. Just Obama’s.

Naturally the Times found a far left blogger that agrees with Obama’s positions ought to be reported but at least quoted John H. Hinderaker, of famed Powerline blog, to the opposite effect. .

Still, it must sting the Obamedia that he thinks they are failing him. After the constant outpouring of love they’ve displayed for him, he still gives them the back of his hand. This unrequited love must be painful, indeed.
