The Mainstream Media Performing Obama's Opposition Research

A very troubling story came across my radar this morning. ABC News's Brian Ross sat down for two hours with Newt Gingrich's 2nd ex-wife, Marianne Gingrich, a woman who claims can destroy him, and ABC News had decided, after much debate, to air the interview on Thursday, rehashing 15 year old information we already covered. Doing so two days before South Carolina votes is an attempt by ABC News to affect the outcome of the primary, and I believe, to lead voters to accepting Mitt Romney as the eventual candidate.

This news troubles me for many reasons. First, the clear and apparent double standard exists. The mainstream media told us that President Bill Clinton's martial infidelity shouldn't be on the table, yet they slam Newt Gingrich for his past, for which I believe he has appropriately atoned, as I had previously stated. That double standard tells me that it's OK for a Democrat to not practice fidelity, yet if a Republican does it, watch out!

Second, it is clear and apparent the media is doing the bidding for and acting as Obama's Opposition Research, working to get rid of ANY electoral threat to the president. As far back as Jack Ryan, the media trashes opponents, and continues into 2012 with attacking Sarah Palin, driving Herman Cain from the campaign, and has continually demeaned Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich. Yet never do they talk about Obama, the most "transparent president" who has not yet released his college/law school transcripts, his college application essay and waited until 2011 to release his birth certificate (and we have Donald Trump to thank for that).

When Democrats are screaming for Obama to run against Mitt Romney in the general election (and I wonder what they have up their sleeve, even after all the Bain Capital talk) and the mainstream media is clearly working toward this goal by going on fishing expeditions against Obama's conservative opponents, Republican voters in South Carolina should be wary of ABC News's timing and action, and instead vote for the candidate of their choice using their OWN research and intuition. And after voting, they can change the channel to Fox News, as a statement against Obama's new Opposition Researchers.
