Just another nail in the coffin of our media. Last year they, along with Democrats, cried and wailed over Ted Cruz wanting a government shutdown over Obamacare. This year when Elizabeth Warren wants a shutdown over business friendly provisions the media is singing a different tune:
Instead of “Why Democrats Want to Shut Down the Government,” we get “Warren tells House Dems not to support omnibus.” Instead of “Elizabeth Warren and the shutdown caucus,” we get “Spending bill teeters amid Democratic discontent.” Instead of “Elizabeth Warren Is Protesting the Shutdown She Asked For” we have “Elizabeth Warren Joinse Revolt Against Wall Street Deal In Government Shutdown Talks.
Last year, Ted Cruz’s push against the government spending deal was all about how Ted Cruz wants a shutdown. But when Elizabeth Warren threatens to torpedo a spending deal that will result in a shutdown, it’s all about her courage in standing up to Wall Street and her populist movement against fat cats. Everyone loves a good story about intrapartisan fighting on Capitol Hill, but only the media wants to hide that what’s behind Elizabeth Warren’s crusade is that she wants to shut down the government to achieve her goals.
And let’s not get started on the flurry of media hyperventilating about how terrible a government shutdown would be when it’s Republicans’ fault, yet not a peep now that a Democratic hero is leading the charge.
The hypocrisy is just appalling, but not shocking. We have been dealing with the bias in our media for decades now so what’s one more example?
On a different note it’s pretty telling that Obama is becoming the big cheerleader for this Omnibus bill..
