A voice crying out in the wilderness

Watch­ing Morn­ing Joe this morn­ing and the sight is astounding.

You see a sin­gle per­son (Joe Scar­bor­ough) point­ing out that it is not a hard thing for the Obama camp to actu­ally know what their chief of staff knows and ask­ing why he isn’t answer­ing ques­tions, while a “cast of thou­sands” comes up with rea­sons why the admin­is­tra­tion can not. Sounds like John 1:23a to me:

He said, I am the voice of one cry­ing in the desert

And that cast of thou­sands is not even the Obama staff, they are the reporters. When he ques­tions why the reporters are mak­ing excuses the answer seems to be you may have a point. He is hav­ing a great time with the head­line of the front page of the New York Times today:

Obama $10 Bil­lion Promise Stirs great hope

Joe seems incred­u­lous at this. Again I see shades of John the Bap­tist Matthew 3:910

And do not pre­sume to say to your­selves, ‘We have Abra­ham as our father.’ For I tell you, God can raise up chil­dren to Abra­ham from these stones. Even now the ax lies at the root of the trees. There­fore every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.

Sounds like a great descrip­tion of the main stream press lets play with that quote and call it Joe 3:910.

Don’t say I went to jour­nal­ism school so that is what will bring the read­ers. I say the inter­net and blogs can take any­one in their paja­mas and turn it into an inves­tiga­tive reporter!

The real ques­tion is how long the pub­lic will put up with this nonsense.

Update: As expected the Hotair has the clip. You know I some­times won­der how I got along before Hotair was launched.

Update: Here is a clip from Morn­ing Joe yes­ter­day on the subject.

Watching Morning Joe this morning and the sight is astounding.

You see a single person (Joe Scarborough) pointing out that it is not a hard thing for the Obama camp to actually know what their chief of staff knows and asking why he isn’t answering questions, while a “cast of thousands” comes up with reasons why the administration can not. Sounds like John 1:23a to me:

He said, I am the voice of one crying in the desert

And that cast of thousands is not even the Obama staff, they are the reporters. When he questions why the reporters are making excuses the answer seems to be you may have a point. He is having a great time with the headline of the front page of the New York Times today:

Obama $10 Billion Promise Stirs great hope

Joe seems incredulous at this. Again I see shades of John the Baptist Matthew 3:9-10

And do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you, God can raise up children to Abraham from these stones. Even now the ax lies at the root of the trees. Therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.

Sounds like a great description of the main stream press lets play with that quote and call it Joe 3:9-10.

Don’t say I went to journalism school so that is what will bring the readers. I say the internet and blogs can take anyone in their pajamas and turn it into an investigative reporter!

The real question is how long the public will put up with this nonsense.

Update: As expected the Hotair has the clip. You know I sometimes wonder how I got along before Hotair was launched.

Update: Here is a clip from Morning Joe yesterday on the subject.
