Our weekly look at the loudest screech from the mainstream media features Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer talking President Obama’s reelection to Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. “How do you go after Barack Obama, though, right now? I mean, the stock market is up. It looks like the unemployment is going down. David Axelrod in his campaign said the other day Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive. It’s going to be a tough job for you, is it now?”
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick this way: “Schieffer’s befuddlement over how anyone could see any shortcomings with Obama’s record sadly reflects how out of touch the Washington press corps are with much of America, which is distressed by Obama’s quest to grow government power. Things may be getting a little less bad, but that hardly vindicates Obama or means there aren’t plenty of holes in his record.
Rating: Two of five screams.
