Media are just shills for White House

Arroyo GrandeMay 25, 2013 

As a Tea Party conservative, it came as no surprise to me that the IRS, with ties to the White House, would stifle the conservative voice of more than 500 organizations with no outrage from the news media. We have news media that are nothing but shills for the White House and the Democrats.

How many of you know that White House Spokesman Jay Carney’s wife works for ABC; or that Virginia Moseley is married to Tom Nides, Hillary Clinton’s deputy secretary; or that David Rhodes, president of CBS, has a brother, Ben, who is a top Obama official; and that the president of ABC, Ben Sherwood, has a sister, Elizabeth Sherwood, who is an Obama special adviser?

As an American, I am flabbergasted that Eric Holder, attorney general and head of the “Injustice Department” would go after James Rosen of FOX News for just doing the job of a hardworking reporter, asking the questions and digging for the answers that the other lackeys let slide. Does anyone in the administration ever bother to read the Constitution, Article I and Article IV?
