NBC's Cynthia Mcfadden asks Jarrett - "what happened?" to Pres. Obama's approval ratings

Last edited Thu Jul 17, 2014, 03:45 PM - Edit history (2)

... once again we have a GOP toady of M$M asking "what happened" to the President's approval ratings, as if they in the M$M haven't been passing on the GOP narrative that everything is Obama's fault - as if the GOP haven't been sabotaging everything the President and the Democrats have been trying to do and setting records for filibustering - which the fascist fearful M$M hasn't considered newsworthy.


Cynthia McFadden 'did her bit' for the GOP cause in her interview of Valerie Jarrett she asked:


CYNTHIA MCFADDEN: So the president came into office with an astounding approval rating and it's now down to 41%. What happened?

VALERIE JARRETT: Look, we're going through some tough times now. But I'll tell you something that I learned very early in the first campaign, is that you just can't look at the daily polls. I mean, my goodness, if we listened to the polls, he would've abandoned the race in the middle of the primary session.

I really wish one Obama administration rep would answer such a question - where the interviewer is playing dumb about their complicity in helping to sell the GOP narrative that leaves out their dedicated sabotage of everything Obama and the Democrats have tried to do to repair the economy from the Republican's Trickle Down disaster.....something like the following:

"Well, I think the people are frustrated by the Government's slow progress on building an economic recovery to the Trickle Down - Deregulation disaster - and on other matters. But gosh Cynthia, certainly you know that the public's impression of the President - and of others in Washington - is dependent a lot upon where they get their news - and how the news is reported. Most people get their news from you people in the M$M.

And I'm surprised, Cynthia you'd ask that question when you know since the President came into office you people in the M$M must have had hundreds of conversations - with the usual favored pundits - about the President's "leadership" while during that same time period the word "filibuster" seems to have been taboo on M$M. In fact I don't think since President Obama came into office the word 'filibuster' has passed the lips of anyone on M$M - even though the Republicans have set new records for filibustering (formally and by amendment) during that time period. The result is the latest Congress has been recognized - in the print media anyway - as the least productive Congress in our history.

But tell me, Cynthia, because I am not a media news producer - why is it nobody in M$M has whispered the word 'filibuster' since President Obama entered the White House, despite the fact that the Republicans have set records for filibustering..??? Explain that to me please, Cynthia, how THAT is not news?

... Far be it from me to accuse anybody of promulgating disinformation, but do you think that this kind of selective reporting of the news might have something to do with the public's attitude re the President?"

>>>>... what do you have to say Cynthia? .... Oh, cat got your tongue?

.... M$M worried about losing audience to the internet would be better served by actually reporting on what is going on - rather than putting on disgusting advertisements about how their quazi-news programs stars really caring about and really being friends of us 'common buggers'. Yeah, right!

1. 1. Total GOP Obstruction 2. GOP-slanted media 3. Disheartening decisions by POTUS

The President himself has made some shady calls (his entire economic team, for starters), but the GOP and the both-sides-are-to-blame Media have really done a number on the Administration.
