Consistency in Reporting

Remember September 11, 2001? I certainly do.

I particularly remember the criticism, bordering on outrage, expressed in the media over the fact that President George Bush, on learning of the attack on the Trade Towers, continued to read to the children in the elementary school classroom he was visiting at that moment.

For months afterwards, our friends in the Main Stream Media continued to churn and boil over Bush’s decision to continue reading to the children. He was denigrated for exhibiting a lack of leadership and a failure to show a sufficient sense of urgency in his response to the 9/11 attacks.

Fast forward to the current turmoil in Israel, Iran, Egypt and Libya.

Our embassies have been attacked. Our diplomats have been killed. Iran is threatening to wipe Israel and all of her citizens off of the globe.

How has President Barack Obama responded in this undeniable time of crisis?

He has no time to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but he does have time to fly to New York City in order to put in a guest appearance on ‘Late Night with David Letterman’.

Sadly, but not unexpectedly, I haven’t heard a whimper out of the media regarding Obama’s decision that chumming and yucking it up with Letterman was more important than conferring with an ally dealing with a very real threat of annihilation.

You’ll pardon me if I gag when George Stephanopoulos and CBS News continue to insist that there is no bias in the media.
