MSM fully deserves this smackdown

If, like me, you have become convinced that Barack Obama could eat the heart of a slaughtered kitten from the skull of a beaten puppy, while standing on the steps of the Capitol, and all the mainstream press would do was wonder whether he should wash it down with white wine or a light beer, then you will appreciate The Onion’s brutal evisceration of the mainstream media’s blind devotion to Obama, which they wholly have coming to them. They’ve earned this:

WASHINGTON—More than a week after President Barack Obama’s cold-blooded killing of a local couple, members of the American news media admitted Tuesday that they were still trying to find the best angle for covering the gruesome crime.

“I know there’s a story in there somewhere,” said Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, referring to Obama’s home invasion and execution-style slaying of Jeff and Sue Finowicz on Apr. 8. “Right now though, it’s probably best to just sit back and wait for more information to come in. After all, the only thing we know for sure is that our president senselessly murdered two unsuspecting Americans without emotion or hesitation.”

Added Meacham, “It’s not so cut and dried.”

    It’s still funny, but you didn’t notice that it was from April 2009.

    Your intro to The Onion’s article on the MSM was priceless! Both your intro and the article are spot on and funny then the realization sinks in – too close to the truth! Scary! There is no wonder why half the country believes the current administration is on the right track.

    (from Bertha’s husband)…you forgot one more opening descriptor:…while standing on the Capitol steps, wearing a genuine fur coat!
