Here are just a couple of things you’ll see and hear very little about in the mainstream media about President Obama’s health care reform law:

On the ruling yesterday that PART of the health care reform bill is unconstitutional:

Henry E. Hudson, the federal judge in Virginia who just ruled health care reform unconstitutional, owns between $15,000 and $50,000 in a GOP political consulting firm that worked against health care reform.

Most of the reports I’ve read and heard on this are neglecting to mention Judge Henry E. Hudson’s ties to the GOP.

Then there’s this, which surprisingly many people are still unaware of:

Clients lobbying on H.R.3200

Just an FYI for those who actually believe that lawmakers have only the best interests of their constituents at heart.

As hard as it is to believe, there are those who actually do.

Almost every day now I see something like this in the news, and every day the messages seem bolder than the last.

The main stream media almost perpetuates it, rather than reporting on it like they should. Not everyone frequents the blogosphere, and not everyone watches the cable news shows, where some call it exactly what it is. It would be nice if they did, but they don’t.

I have a request for the “so called media”:  DO YOUR JOB. This isn’t funny, and it isn’t something to be speculated on light-heartedly or merely used as a cell phone poll as if it were a pop culture question.

Isn’t it about time that the rest of the MSM called it what it is?

I will. These people are inciting violence. Period.

Good grief, even the people behind “Facebook” take it seriously, and yet the “news media” refuses to.

Absolutely pathetic.

Hey look! It’s everybody’s favorite “we’ll say anything for money” political pro-wrestling husband and wife team, and they are in agreement on at least one thing: They are simply adorable!

Carville and Matalin have always made me feel ill for a lot of reasons. But this? Let’s just say it will be a while before I can get this ugly image out of my head. Shudder.

The “Today Show” has hired Jenna Bush Hager as their newest correspondent. Really? I suppose this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. After all, the big networks have a history of giving high profile jobs based on nepotism to people with no experience. I don’t know about you, but I feel this is offensive on a number of levels. It’s bad enough that “anchors” and “reporters” on these so called “news” programs these days feel it’s their role to tell us, the audience, how we feel about the news. I remember when their job was to be objective and just tell us what the news was. Now how we feel about the news of the day seems to depend largely on the corporate interest or politics of the particular network we’re watching, or the personal opinion of the person reporting on the news at that moment. Of course, not every single news outlet or reporter does this; there are still a few left out there who have integrity. But this is pretty much how the television news media operates as a whole, in my opinion.

That being said, according to the Associated Press article posted on the Today Show website announcing Jenna’s new job: “Today has hired someone with “White House experience.” I suppose by that reasoning they could have hired Barney. After all, former White House dog Millie did dictate and publish a Memoir in 1990.

The article also states that Mrs. Hager hopes “…to focus on what I’m passionate about because I think I’d do the best job on them – education, urban education, women and children’s issues and literacy.” That’s admirable, but if she truly feels that she would do a better job focusing on those issues, wouldn’t it be more beneficial to her students and herself to stick to her job as a teacher, rather than splitting the job with one as a “Today Show” corespondent? If she is focusing on a career in television as well, I would imagine there are a lot of unemployed teachers out there who really need her job and would truly appreciate having it. Education isn’t the only industry that’s suffering in this economy. You may have heard that the news industry has taken a big hit as well. There are a lot of reporters out there who are looking for a job too. Some who have integrity and objectivity, who know how to report the news without any bias whatsoever. If only there were a network who was hiring……………
