President Obama met privately with news columnists recently and told them that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety people felt after the terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino. He was obviously still consumed with dread over global warming, which has not killed anyone on earth yet and was understandably caught unawares by his constituents reaction to hundreds more innocent people dead and injured at the hands of bloodthirsty terrorists.
This stupefying presidential comment was originally published in the first edition of the New York Times late Thursday night, December 17th, despite some consternation. CNN’s Brian Stelter, among others, drew attention to it. Yet, just as the quote was being absorbed and disseminated, the Times erased it from their papers without alerting readers that it had been retracted, changed, redacted, updated, altered or corrected. It simply vanished. It was replaced by a new paragraph and presidential quote bearing no resemblance to the original.
Apparently, the “Gray Lady” deemed the fact that the president of the United States willingly attributed his inability to understand that Americans were anxious and concerned, after two major terrorist attacks on Western cities left scores dead, to his infrequent cable television perusal, unfit news to print. The “paper of record” ripped the record of the president’s comments from its own pages with no notice to its readers.
It is yet another example of the mainstream media’s pledge of allegiance to Obama, progressivism and those who disdain America (and her citizens freedom). They will only speak “truth to power” when those they detest wield it. When their people reign, they are for abuse of power.
