Condoleezza Rice gets the Abercrombie treatment

'I never knew what life was until it ran out in a red gush over my lips, my hands!'

Still fuming over the how Rush Limbaugh was so unfairly treated by the media ( ! ) over four years ago, Bird of Paradise points out the how the press is giving Congressman Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii) a free ride by letting him get away with this comment about Condoleezza Rice:

In today’s : Honolulu Star-Bulletin Abercrombie is quoted as describing U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as being:

"the most overrated, underperforming individual in executive authority that I have ever seen."

"She constantly gets a pass. Who knows if the whole question of race and gender come into it, but..." Bird of Paradise

I would agree with Bird of Paradise about this point. Abercrombie is dead wrong. Condoleezza Rice does not get a free pass because she is black OR a woman. She gets a free pass by the Republican owned media for the same reason that every other Republican in the governement has gotten a free pass for the last five years. Condoleezza Rice gets a free pass by the Republican owned press because she is a Republican.

Right. There are no liberals in the media.

Someone once said that if they wanted to build the news media from scratch, we would get what we have now, cable, big newspapers, and big networks. A nice mix of news.

But would we staff it with ninety percent of the people from one political party, and ten percent from the other?

Please step outside your partisanship, just for a moment. Abercrombie was being highly partisan. So are you. What he said was stupid. What you posted was even more so.

LOL! So you think the media is run by liberals? Explain yourself. Explain how the "liberal press" has given the present adminstration a free pass for 5 years. The number one news channel, FOX News is owned by Rupert Murdoch. Are going to explain how he is a liberal? The Washington Post is owned Sun Yung Moon. Are going to explain how he is a liberal? The list goes on and on.

You don't even list your blog in your profile, because you are such a ridiculous coward. Did this post anger you? GOOD. That cracks me up!
