After all we have heard the MSM spend the better part of today not only attacking Mitt Romney for saying things to big money donors but saying them BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. In fact we heard Stephanie Cutter of the Obama Campaign stress on MSNBC how bad it was that Mitt Romney spoke these words to rich people “behind closed doors.”
So it must a great relief to the MSM to know the Obama Campaign that they so love and respect will open the doors tonight to their $40,000 a head Manhattan event, they will be happy to have the cameras rolling as President Obama says exactly what he thinks to the guests on topics from Egypt to taxes to the deficit.
I’m sure Morning Joe will be very happy to analyze and contrast President Obama’s words, I’m positive Chuck Todd will have the full rundown on them and I’m really looking forward to Stephanie Cutter being able to contrast the open and transparent nature of President Obama’s event to a video shot secretly months ago.
And if for some reason MSNBC isn’t given the video and access is denied and no questions are forthcoming I’m sure MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, Current TV and all their host will deplore the lack of transparency with the same vigor that they dissected the video provided by Mother Jones.
After all, openness and finding the truth is what the whole MSM is all about, as Chuck Todd once put it:
“My job is to bring up issues that Americans care about. It’s my responsibility to ask the tough questions. No matter whose leading the country they need to be held accountable. I have unique access to the president, his advisers, the candidates and members of congress. I’d better use that access for a greater good, use it for people who can’t get through the White House Gates, for people who can’t be heard. The American People deserve answers”
By this time tomorrow we will discover if proper label for this video is “Lean Forward” or “Bend over”
Up to you Chuck.
