If you didn’t watch Fox News, you might not even know that Obama dissed Christianity. You might not know that Obama hitched up his holier than thou pants and launched into a sermon chock full of the moral equivalence between the Islam of today versus the Christianity of centuries past.
You wouldn’t know.
You wouldn’t have learned this from ABC, CBS and certainly not from Brian Williams as none of them covered the story.
Unfortunately, the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC all ignored the President’s critique of Christianity during the Thursday evening newscasts with only ABC’s World News Tonight with David Muir even mentioning that the event took place earlier in the day.
Over on ABC, anchor David Muir spent 11 seconds hyping “a ground-breaking moment” that took place at the breakfast in the form of Obama and the Dalai Lama appearing in public for the first time. Muir also reported that Obama referred to him there as “a good friend.”
Politico didn’t have a story on it. Neither did the Hill. The same media that drools over every Palin family mishap refused to cover Obama comparing Christianity to Islamic extremism.
So how did the Obama sycophants in the media handle the issue? They savaged Obama’s critics. Check out the titles:

The NY Slimes: Critics Seize On Obama’s ISIS Remarks at Prayer Breakfast
The entire article is garbage.
WASHINGTON — President Obama may have thought he was giving a straightforward history lesson at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday when he compared the atrocities of the Islamic State to the bloodshed committed in the name of Christianity in centuries past.
Complete bullshit. He wasn’t giving a history lesson. He was lecturing.
And of course, the fault lies with Obama’s critics:
Rush Limbaugh devoted a segment of his show to what he said were the president’s insults to the “whole gamut of Christians” and Twitter’s right wing piled on. Guests on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show spent 15 minutes airing objections to the president’s comments.
Reverend Obama adds:
“There is a tendency in us, a sinful tendency, that can pervert and distort our faith.”
A “sinful tendency in us.” Catch that? Us.
We are all at fault for Islamic extremism. Original sin. And the media sucks it up.
