'Whispers get loud around Michelle Obama'

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by WaylonJennings, Jun 12, 2008.

  1. This piece seems to tread dangerously close to the ground occupied by the Washington Post story a few months ago, about all the Barack Obama Muslim gossip, that was widely panned:


    Clearly they are referring to the Michelle Obama "tapes" that are supposedly floating around.

    Other criticism is more pernicious, relying on thinly sourced, evidence-free allegations that float unchecked through the corridors of gossip.

    I don't know about everyone else, but I'm still hung up on Fox News calling the Obamas' fist bump a "terrorist fist jab"

    I guess nobody at Fox ever, ever saw The Wire.

    Any day now the Faux News talking heads will roll out on the set wearing the white sheets.

    Fox has moved on from the terrorist fist bump. The new one is to call Michelle "Obama's Baby Momma"

    Has Faux News criticized McCain yet for coming home from Vietnam, divorcing his wife - who had been disabled by an auto accident, and then marrying his current trophy wife with the rich daddy.

    It seems that the media have a hard time criticizing Obama directly, so they go after those around him. A big "storyline" for Obama (though this is very subtle) is that since he's black he's obviously pissed off at the white establishment and will wait until he becomes President to show his true self.

    He's not the messiah. He's a very naughty boy.

    Bless your heart, Armchair ... I was beginning to think I lost the room.
