The liberal media seems to be pulling out all the stops (and exposing their inherent bias) to save Democrats from blame if there is a government shutdown.
Tomorrow, the AP will cover the current spending standoff in an article that will appear across the country, likely in whatever newspaper you read. The AP’s piece, by Andrew Taylor, begins:
With the government teetering on the brink of partial shutdown, congressional Republicans vowed Sunday to keep using an otherwise routine federal funding bill to try to attack the president’s health care law.
There you have it! Our government is “teetering,” but those dastardly Republicans have “vowed” to use an “otherwise routine” spending bill to “try to attack” Obamacare.
Well, that might work if the press had any respect with the American public. But neither Obamacare nor the News Media are in good standing with the citizens of this great country at the moment. The News Media is hovering around its worse, historic standing ever – a new low measured just last month:
Worse yet, in the demographics Democrats need to rally to the media is not popular at all:
Obamacare is still not seeing majority support (update: Hot Air identified the latest Obamacare poll), and when it rolls out tomorrow and people see all the promises broken – the fact they will lose their current plans AND pay more – the news media will be seen as the political shill it is. Which will only cement their current reputation with the people.
I say let it play out. The Dems and Media are bluffing on who will get the blame. And the GOP should do what is right, not what is popular.
