Ten Stories that will become newsworthy if Romney wins
Nov 6, 2012

This election is very close. Either candidate could win it.

If the Republican Mitt Romney wins the election, then the leftist "mainstream" media will rediscover some of their news items that they used to report. These are the things they have been ignoring for the past four years in their zeal to protect President Obama. But once we have a Republican president again... then they will become newsworthy again:

  1. The Sad Plight of the Homeless
  2. Inflation is Killing Our Middle Class
  3. Afghanistan War Drags On - Cindy Sheehan Was Right!
  4. Where are the jobs?
  5. Highest Poverty Rate in 50 Years
  6. More Soldiers Killed in Fighting
  7. Nation Crippled by Record National Debt
  8. College Graduates Can't Find Jobs
  9. OWS is Back - And This Time They Mean It!
  10. Illegal Immigrants Pour Across Borders

Of course, if President Obama wins, then these stories will be suppressed for another four years.

Because that's just the way it works.

The problem with our media today is they no longer see themselves as journalists or even reporters. They are now advocates. People like Chris Mathews will freely tell you "my job is to make Obama a success." Somehow, they never felt that way about President Reagan or either President Bush.

When a Republican is elected President they feel their job is to turn the public against them. When a Democrat is elected President they feel their job is to prop them up, and make them more popular by selectively spinning the news for them.

The proof of this is that we have a President running for reelection today who has failed miserably, even at meeting his own goals. Yet he still has a 50-50 chance of being reelected. Without his solid media support, he would have absolutely no chance to win this election, given his poor job performance.

You may want to bookmark this post, so you can see if I am right. If Obama loses this election, then the media will continue spinning the news to make him look good, and ignoring all his blunders and failures. If Romney wins, then they will go right back to attack mode, like they did when GW Bush is president.

Every single item on my list will become news again.
