Susan Rice battles critics as abrasive style takes toll. (snort)
Edited on Sat Nov-24-12 02:45 AM by No Elephants
I think the authors of this article wore out their Thesauruses looking for ways to avoid using "uppity" and "bitchy" in this article.

What a shame we still don't have sweet John Bolton representing us at the UN, eh?

1. Reuters sucks.
They are nothing more than a right wing mouthpiece. But that isn't unusual, nearly the entire media is in the tank for these fucks. Example? Just remember back to the "News" leading up to the invasion of Iraq--a complete media failure.

With John Bolton in place we would already be engaged in cranking up the war machine and pushing all sorts of Iran WMD lies in the media.

2. Most media is now part of a propaganda machine.
If the issue is Republican vs. Democrat (forget about anything left of Democrat), the media go Republican.

And, if no Republican interest is involved, the media go establishment, which since 2008, has been the Obama administration.

The only exception that I can think of is MSNBC, which was Republican while Bush was riding high, but became increasingly New Democrat/pro=Obama. There are still some Republicans in there, though, earlier in the day. Joe Scarborough, Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, etc.

I mentioned Bolton only because this is an article on Rice's alleged personality flaws as ambassador to the UN, and he was supposedly as abrasive and unpersonable as they come.
