Obama, Hunter Biden, Bristol Palin, Hypocrisy and Media Bias

Posted by iusbvision on September 2, 2008

CNN, MSNBC and most of the television elite media has been almost wall to wall making a political issue of of 17 year old Bristol Palin who is getting married to her boyfriend Levi and is pregnant. The Democrats are talking about this non-stop and while Obama himself said kids are off limits, his campaign surrogates are plowing ahead with it full throttle; just like when Obama’s campaign surrogates launched a multi-pronged attack on John McCains military service while Obama was saying that military service should not be an issue.

CNN has been doing advocacy journalism by saying that “abstinence education doesn’t work” and that we need to hand out condoms; but doesn’t tell you that Alaska is 30th among states in teenage pregnancy which is ahead of many states such as Connecticut that uses “do it here is a condom” sex education. I have the video clips of CNN doing this but I refuse to post them.

WHY?

Because kids should not be used as political tools. Remember what happened when the NBC Anchor said that Hillary “was pimping out Chelsea”? … that NBC anchor was suspended.

They don’t tell you that Obama’s mother was 18 and unwed when she gave birth to Barack, just like Bristol Palin. Obama in his own book states that he was drinking and doing illegal drugs when he was 18; yet you don’t hear about that on TV and radio.

Yesterday CNN Asked show Palin can be VP with young children at home – UMM EXCUSE ME – Barack Obama has young children at home… yet he is a man so CNN won’t ask about that will they? Do not be fooled by this nonsense, these are gender attacks of the worst kind.

Speaking of kids, I have known this for some time but did not report it, but now I am forced to, Joe Biden’s son is now in great legal trouble for hedge funds fraud.

Biden’s Son, Brother Named in Two Suits

A son and a brother of Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) are accused in two lawsuits of defrauding a former business partner and an investor of millions of dollars in a hedge fund deal that went sour, court records show.

The Democratic vice presidential candidate’s son Hunter, 38, and brother James, 59, assert instead that their former partner defrauded them by misrepresenting his experience in the hedge fund industry and recommending that they hire a lawyer with felony convictions.

Hunter Biden is one of many children and relatives of prominent members of Congress who have made their careers as lobbyists.

Sen. Barack Obama sought more than $3.4 million in congressional earmarks for clients of the lobbyist son of his Democratic running mate, Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware, records show. Obama succeeded in getting $192,000 for one of the clients, St. Xavier University in suburban Chicago.

[This story has been updated HERE. – Editor]

You don’t see Republicans on television throwing this in Biden’s face do you? These are real crimes and the influence peddling that McCain has opposed and Sarah Palin has successfully combated her entire political career; yet no wall to wall, CNN and MSNBC or Katie Couric coverage. I did not post this information just to trash Biden’s child, as I said I regret even having to post it, but to show the double standards that are being used by biased journalists and campaign hacks.

Sarah Palin is someone who balances career, athletics, politics, and family and has been a smashing success. She is everything that the feminists say that a woman should be (minus having an abortion) and they hate her for it. Remember that.

WSBT Radio got in on the act today. They made a news blurb [paraphrasing as it was just a short radio blurb] saying how it’s interesting how the Christian community says that Bristol Palin’s pregnancy is a private matter, in the context as if it is somehow hypocritical. WSBT even plucked a comment mid thought, out of context, of a member of the IUSB community to do it. Is this just another example of how the left, including many reporters (heck and even many secular leftist academics), don’t get Christianity? We try to resist sin, but we are all sinners, we all make mistakes which is why we need Jesus Christ as our redeemer. While sin is often a disappointment, it is how we deal with the consequences of sin that matters. Bristol Palin is getting married, did not have an abortion and has a family that is dedicated to helping her. Barack Obama says he is a Christian and was born when his mother was 18 and was unwed at the time of the birth, but Christians and Republicans left that issue alone for the same reasons. Did we see day after day of TV and radio coverage when Obama said “I am my brothers keeper” at the convention and yet we know that Barack’s own brother lives in a hut with no utilities?

Isn’t it the left that tells people to respect the privacy of the womb?

Limbaugh – “Imagine every detail of your children’s lives being made national news by the drive by media in an effort to destroy you. This isn’t a media anal exam, this is a media uterus exam.”

They are trying to disqualify Palin as a working mother, and even using a bogus argument as a “Christian Trump Card” to do it.

UPDATE: – And the NY Times had 3 page one stories about Palin’s daughter. Read this one for yourself and tell me if they are not trying to disqualify her as a working mom.

UPDATE II: HEY DEMOCRATS IN THE MEDIA, WHY DON’T YOU EVER TALK ABOUT PALIN’S RECORD?

I have been listening to WBBM AM 780 radio for about the last two hours. They are deferring to CBS Radio for their coverage of the Republican Convention. It has been all Palin bashing all the time, constant reminders every few minutes that her daughter is pregnant and even a crack by CBS anchor Bob Schieffer comparing Palin to Thomas Eagleton, who was the Democratic VP nominee in 1972 and then removed from the ticket at the convention and they commented that Palin’s daughters pregnancy maybe should mean that Palin be removed from the Republican ticket.

Almost nowhere do you hear the drive by media talk about Palin’s record of fighting corruption, taking on the energy companies, she brought down the old Republican machine when she discovered corruption there, she has passed economic and ethics reforms when fought tooth and nail by members of both parties. She also returned money to the people of Alaska when the government had too much extra cash.

Women of America, I hope that you never forget this.

    All good points. For a humorous take on Palin’s pregnancy pickle check out, http://beema.wordpress.com/2008/09/01/beema-news-september-1-2008/. If you don’t laugh you will cry.

  2. I watched and listened to Barack’s first FULL (or complete) video response by Obama referencing Bristol Palin’s situation, Sen Obama stated that his mother was a single mother at 18 and if his Mom had not continued the pregnancy he would not be here now as Dem. Pres. nominee. It is a shame that the media does not replay all of his comments accurately each time they show his comments. Name the people responsible for their actions &/or comments. If individuals accuse either McCain’s surrogates or Obama’s surrogates of launching attacks opposite of their candidates stated stance that these people be named.

    Hi Mary, we watched it too, and you make a good point. Unfortunately we live in the era of Saul Alinsky politics, where the strategy is not to play the field, but rather to clear the field; meaning destroy anyone else on the field.

    After this story – https://iusbvision.wordpress.com/2008/07/01/obama-campaign-attacks-mccains-military-record-in-trial-balloon/ – and then seeing how Hillary was attacked and now this Palin gender bashing by the media and the entire Democratic Machine. I must conclude that Obama is not sincere. It is let the campaign attack while he stays above the fray, just like when they launched a multi-pronged attack on McCain’s military record over the 4th of July weekend, and this included attacks by Obama campaign people on the Sunday Morning political talk shows and no one goes on those shows without being scripted.
