What's the Difference Between Libs in Politics and Libs in the Media?
Here's a safe rule of thumb for all you civilians out there: Whatever you hear from liberals in politics you will soon hear from liberals in the media.
So Barack Obama tells us that the trillions in his budget are "investments." And the next thing you hear from the so-called mainstream media is that all that spending represents …wait for it … "investments." What a coincidence!
Now we learn that the president is about to unveil his plan to reduce the national debt and a key component of the plan is to raise taxes on "the rich." So what do we get from the lamestream media?
We get Evan Thomas, Newsweek's resident thinker-in-chief, bemoaning Paul Ryan's budget, saying, "He doesn't deal with the revenue side at all," adding, "We're going to have to raise some taxes…"
Then we get my Fox News fellow analyst, Juan Williams, saying that Ryan is "not doing anything in terms of taxes." And, oh yeah, "The rich get off like scoundrels."
And the BBC's World News America anchor, Katty Kay, says, "There is this allergy amongst Republicans about saying, 'you know what, we actually do have to deal with taxes too.'"
"Deal with taxes" in case you're dense, means "raising taxes" on "the rich."
So, you see how it works. President Obama and other liberal Democrats come up with an idea and before you know it, liberals in the media are parroting the very same ideas.
Interesting, isn't it, how liberals who are always saying that Fox News anchors get their talking points straight from Republicans in Washington have no concern that it sure looks like their side is getting their talking points from liberal Democrats inside the Beltway.
By the way, none of these brilliant liberal pundits bothered to mention that the top one percent of American taxpayers otherwise known as "the rich" pay about 40 percent of all federal income taxes. And the top five percent, pay about 60 percent. Or that the top 10 percent pay about 70 percent.
Question for my friend Juan Williams: Please explain how the rich are getting off like scoundrels. But you can't really blame Juan for the cheap shot. It's just something he picked up from those wily liberals in politics.
I told you it was a safe rule of thumb.
