“We need to hire grown-ups to cover the President”. Kirsten Powers: White House press corps is “juvenile and amateurish” in how they cover Obama and swoon over his every move. Andrea Tantaros asserted that “the media created the problem” by giving Obama “a God-like status.” “Newsweek made him look angelic on the covers. Then they believed their own hype. … So now they are drunk with their own nonsense.” Finally catching up with what we knew in 2008; what’s the hurry, he’s gonna be Putter-In-Chief at least ’till 2017.

The problem with having adult reporters is that Obama is not particularly thick-skinned or humble and can show a little bit of anger when he gets tough questioning. A couple of Fox reporters and Jake Tapper are the only ones I’ve ever seen ask interesting questions and push back against stonewalling.

He DOES get a little pissy when challenged, doesn’t he?

We don’t need grown-ups to cover for the Presdient, we need a grown-up President. Right now we have a lazy, narcissistic, immature leftist whose fecklessness is covered up by an adoring media. The grown-ups currently around him (in his adminsitration and in MSM) are as ill informed and clueless as Obama, they act as his enablers. The whole crowd should be tossed out.

It took over 4 years for a very few of the media elite to figure this out? It doesn’t say much about their level of intelligence.

Your giving them too much credit. They have yet to figure it out. Example? Juan Williams & his deal with NPR, look who effed him, & he has’nt learned sh!t from that.

How dare someone criticize “Dear Leader’s” personally selected press corps. His cronies when through great effort to select only the finest moon eyed fawning supplicants.

The press will continue to praise and hail Chicago Jesus….No different than the people taken in by Reverand Jim Jones, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Reverend Wright, the crazy, the wacky, the race baiters, the hate mongerers, and the rest of the crap the unintelligent voters keep falling in love with.

Kristen Powers may be a “liberal” but she’s usually a sane one I disagree with her lots, but she at least gives up her reasonings instead of just calling others idiots.

The actual question: When are pro-liberty billionaires going to start buying media corporations and hiring non ideological reporters looking to publish real news?

Never. Becausethos billionaires are more interested in further increasing their bank accounts than they are in expressing unpopular views that might lose them some support.

If you’re a Democrat, or part of the media, and Kirsten Powers is criticizing you, you’re in real trouble.
