…they’ll have far greater scrutiny than the media will ever give a Democrat:
After the alleged “scoop” of Rubio’s four parking tickets over 18 years last Friday (and in Saturday’s paper), the (New York) Times on Tuesday ran a big piece on how Rubio is supposedly a disaster when it comes to his own personal finances… (Harold) Evensky, who reviewed Rubio’s public financial disclosures at the newspaper’s request, donated $500 to Obama in 2007 according to online records, but the Times didn’t disclose it. …
Rubio, they wrote, struggled under student loan debt until he managed to make money with a 2012 book (“financial salvation” the Times called it). Rubio also liquidated a retirement account, incurring taxes and penalties. And he sold a house at a loss.
Eight years ago, an investigation would have shown that the Obamas struggled under huge student loan debt until his books became best-sellers (Dreams From My Father originally came out in 1995). Obama received 15 outstanding parking tickets from 1988 to 1991 when he was at Harvard — tickets he didn’t even pay until January 2007, a couple of weeks before he announced his presidential campaign.
But a Nexis search shows the Times didn’t write about the Obamas’ student loan troubles in 2007, or Barack Obama’s parking tickets at Harvard, when Obama was in the same position as Rubio…
Don’t misunderstand me: I’m still not a supporter of the GOP as a party (they left me and all the other small-government Constitutionalists; we didn’t leave them), nor am I particularly a fan of Marco Rubio as a candidate. And I do believe in scrutinizing candidates to determine if they demonstrate sound judgement and intelligence (though that’s not the goal of these Times hit pieces). But anyone who still believes, in this day and age, that legacy media outlets like the New York Times provide the same “objective coverage” to all parts of the political spectrum, is under serious delusion.
I agree with one commenter on the site who said “(R) = report bad news; (D) = do not report bad news.”
This corrupted, leftist propaganda system dropped any remaining pretense of objectivity in order to elect “The One” in 2008, and they’ve been covering for him ever since. Now they are desperate to get Her Hillariness into office — probably in part because they’re paid lackeys! Not only do the voters need to reject utterly the leftist political agenda at the polls, they also need to pull the rug out from under their media enablers. Don’t just consume (and thus support financially) what these outlets spew because they’re “established” and have decades of history. There are better alternatives out there. Use them!
