Remember the US elections, and the media being so 'in the can' for Barack Obama, with their knives out for Sarah Palin.
It must rank as the most disgusting spectacle that this journalist have ever seen; and I have experienced the BBC, as well as eleven or so years of journalism in New Zealand.
Now, US filmmaker John Ziegler has begun ruffling a few feathers, with his movie that opens in the US tonight.
Media Malpractice: How Obama got Elected and Palin was Targeted, highlights what might be seen as the 'death of journalism' after reporters proved unable to handle the campaign fairly.
Of course, there has been much to say about how the New Zealand media handled our own election. I recall TV3 was notably bad, and the Sunday Star-Times, along with National Radio remained firmly in Uncle Helen's camp.
However, it wasn't as biased as it had been in election 2005, and some on the left claimed Granny was in the can for National.
However, I was horrified by the far worse scene in the US, with much abuse heaped on Palin and overwhelming adulation given to the ObamaMessiah.
Now, what is the result of this?
We have a US President inexperienced and incapable of dealing with the economic crisis upon us. We have a US president making huge blunders with his appointments. We now have a public finally waking up to the pup sold to them by the media, as noted by Obama's falling ratings.
As as seems likely, the US voters will pay for the media's folly, but so will the world.
America in its time of greatest need, now has a leader who is clearly not up to the job of tackling such a crisis.
Obama's failures, becoming clearer all the time, will mean the loss of millions of jobs, a recovery delayed, and who knows what untold damage in the sphere of foreign affairs.
Wiser, more experienced heads, like John McCain's were available.
The US could have taken a diffferent route, a balanced route, reflecting more bi-partisanship since both houses are controlled by the Democrats.
But as we see a country failing miserably under Obama, and its Democrats hegemony, thanks to the Liberal media. Once the US voters realise how much this has cost them personally and their country, what revenge will they seek on the MSM?
I leave you with that other clip, taken on election day of Obama voters.
And here's Sarah Palin, interviewed by John Ziegler.
