Liberal Hypocrisy Test

Hypocrisy has always been a part and parcel of politics and the main stream media. Whoever is in power always try to use the mainstream media to not only spread their propaganda and to spin the daily news to suit their needs, but to also try silence any opposing views and opinions by discrediting and decrying the source or facts that may be out there. Moreover, over the past couple of decades or so, it is an undeniable fact that most of the mainstream media outlets are left-leaning. The initial left-leaning sentiments of the media has of late turned to liberal bias and unfair coverage and mis-representation of current affairs.

The current administration has taken this a notch over, of course with the help of the media. It's been a symbiotic relationship. The politicians get their propaganda spread, while the news media get their ratings with the help of the "American Idol" celebrity President gracing their shows. One of the many ways the current administration has used to distract people from actual issues is playing the blame game or using the 'race' card. To the extent that, if you asked,

Q: Why hasn't the stimulus package worked as you said it would? Why hasn't it created jobs like you said that it would?
A: It is all because of the previous 8 years of the Bush administration

Q: Do you think the President is faltering in domestic issues?
A: You are a racist.

Rewind back a little to the previous administration. They were as irresponsible if not more than the current administration in dealing with issues. But the left and the media had similar things said about them like what is being said about the current state of affairs by the right. But the media is going berserk calling everyone who offer criticism a racist or an extremist.

I do not condone some of the harsh criticism and comments. In fact, some of them are outright ridiculous. But putting things in perspective, the hoopla over "unfair" criticism is just a boatload of you know what. It is just an effort to discount the criticism, whose intentions are valid, but methods are crude. The same bunch of people used similar criticism tactics against the previous administration.

Here's a video I ran into recently. It depicts the hypocrisy involved in how the liberal media covers the criticism of the current President. You've got to watch it. If you do not see the hypocrisy (hard not too), then you are officially a liberal hack like the ones on MSNBC. Enjoy.....
