WE Decide What's Fair And Balanced!

First, it was Fox News's Major Garrett with his ballsy, "What took you so long?" comment aimed at Obama in reference to his hesitation on addressing the situation in Iran. The worst part? Our very favorite SoS Hillary Clinton practically begged Obama to address it in the first place; credit given where credit is due. All of a sudden Dear Leader is "shocked and appalled" at the violence in Iran, yet was quick to jump on the Communist bandwagon with brothers Chavez and Castro when it came to Argentina.

Now, we have far, far leftist Helen Thomas of the Hearst Corporation and Chip Reid of ABC News grilling the unbearably boring and speech-impaired Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on the "heavily controlled" media. Gee, ya think? Media control is nothing new, and it doesn't take rocket science to figure out it leans to the far left. What I do wonder, however, is if this instance of "lashing out" is not a form of media control in and of itself.

Has anyone here ever heard of democracy? You know; freedom of speech, Constitutionalism, freedom of choice, people's votes matter, etc. Obsolete stuff, I know. An issue has been brought up about this by a colleague of mine about whether this wasn't set up by our very own administration in order to fool the people into believing there was still freedom of speech in the media. We all know how far left Helen Thomas leans; who would've thought this woman would have said such a thing?

Put on your tinfoil hats, folks, but you have to wonder what's going on here. Since when have you heard of any sort of real dissent being nationally televised, and better yet, broadcasted for everyone to see? At first, I was both shocked and elated to see this little old woman make such a big splash. However, after my colleague's comment and upon re-examination of the video, I think he makes a very good point.

Since when are we to trust anything the mainstream media shoves down our throats? Are we all falling victim to a classic case of confirmation bias, and since it falls into line with our own ideology; we believe it? That's up to you. I urge you to think out the box on this one, you may find yourself thinking twice...
