Media's Double Standard

 The story of Bill Cosby's past sexual harrassment activities is continuing to occupuy the main stream media so I looked at an earlier post on this blog concerning Bill Clinton's past activities visa a vie the opposite sex and found the Sunday, May 18, 2014 post about how the media aided the Clintons in making Monica Lewinski the villain.  Interesting to say the least, but yet another example of the media's liberal bias in covering all sorts of stories.  Bill Clinton is lionized to this day by the media and there is never a mention of what he did to the women in is life, he is the Champion of the left wing while Bill Cosby is now the villian and every women who comes forward is believed without question.  Clinton's victims are all liars and stalkers, while Cosby's are innocent virgins who never wanted anything but to be loved and admired by the great man.  I am in no way excusing what Cosby is alleged to have done, which if true, should make him a piria, I just want to point out what happens to anyone who crosses the leftist media in this country.

Bill Cosby and The Liberal Media

As a fan of The Cosby Show, I never missed and episode, I am saddened by the controversy over Bill Cosby's alleged sexual abuse of women decades ago, who knew, the media never told us about the allegations, there was no 60 Minutes Exposee or Washington Post in dept investigation, Al LA Bob McDonald.  Why now?  Why is the media all over this story ten years after the fact?  It could be because of the all to familiar pattern shown by liberals that if you stray from their orthodoxy you will be open to attack by thier minions in the mainstream media.  Cosby has spoken out about the dysfunctional black family in America and has criticized the African American leadership for constantly blaming white people for every failure in the black community.  The liberals need to balme white people so they can maintain their hold on black voters, black unemployment, black violent crime, school drop out, teen pregnancy, these are all the fault of the white community and corporate America, its not your fault, Vote Democrat!  But don't cross the line and say wait a minute, what have the Democrats done for black America, don't question the liberal mantra or they will come after you.

The Liberal Elete

The fact that most liberals in this country look down on anyone who disagrees with them has been brought to light recently by the Gruber videos which the mainstream media have all but ignored, but it is also manifested by Obama's unwillingness to accept the results of the 2014 mid-term elections.  Why would the President pay attention to the voice of a people he largely disdains, and thinks, as does Professor Gruber are too stupid to know what is good for them.  Examples of Obama's haughtiness:  Keystone Pipeline, not on my watch I don't care how many jobs it will create; Obamacare, its working no changes necessary; Putin, not in my national intetest to confront him.  The list could go on and on but the point is made, Obama will do what he knows is best regardless of what the people of country think and the mainstream media will  not criticize or challenge him.  If you want a sports analogy look no further than the Washington football team and their inept quarterback, the media will not call for his replacement, but the guy obviously can't play the position. He thinks he is great and the media keep saying how gifted he is, but the reality is he does not know what he is doing and he can't adapt.

Rioting in Charlottesville

Hypocrisy is the watch word of our modern society, it is everywhere:  in our politics, our social mores, our entertainment industry, and especially in our media.  Why is it that the media gets so worked up every time a white man kills a black man, which is really quite rare, but is lackadaisical when a black man rapes and kills white girls, possibly a lot of white girls.  Nobody is marching in Charlottesville, Virginia, there are no riots and incredibly the Department of Justice is not interested in conducting an investigation.  Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are nowhere to be found and President Obama has nothing to say on the matter.

What do words mean?

What is the definition of war?  Does it only mean the use of ground forces, or does it mean the engagement of an enemy by what ever means necessary to achieve victory?  If it means the latter, we are at war with Islamic Terrorists in spite of the failure of our leader to use that term, or for that matter his failure to even identify the forces we are fighting.  The name of our enemy is ISIS, the key word in that identifier is Islamic.  Why won't our leader identify the enemy?  Is it because of his upbringing, the dreams of his father, or his fear of offending a group of people?  While we are on the subject of definitions, what does the phrase "Bring to Justice" mean?  Every time the Islamic Terrorists (there, I said it) attack and kill an American we are told the perps will be "Brought to Justice", but it rarely if ever happens, unless by bringing to justice we mean killing by the use of drones.  But in my dictionary that's not justice its retribution.

Sexual Harassment

Monica Lewinski is back in the news and it is now coming out that some in the media aided the Clinton's in making her the villain in the scandal that led to the impeachment of the President. http://washington.cbslocal.com/2014/05/16/letterman-i-feel-bad-about-my-role-in-humiliating-lewinsky/

Amazing how things turn around, I don't think that Clinton should have been impeached for  his affair and the cover-up that ensued, but he should have resigned or at the very least apologized for his actions and volunteered to enter sexual harassment training.  To this day Bill and Hilary act and talk as if Monica was the villain of the piece.  If what he did was not sexual harassment then the term has no meaning.  The fact that those in the media and others, some who call themselves feminists, defended him and continue to lionize him is the real tragedy of this whole episode.  Clinton's actions in this instance, and this was not the only such instance in his life, set back the cause of equality of women in the work place and led to an atmosphere where women continue to receive unequal pay and are derided if they act like men when they are put in positions of power, take note New York Times.

At one time I oversaw FOIA at a Federal agency, having to forward requests to the White House for review must impose a tremendous burden on both requesters and agency personnel.
