Beyond Bias: Media Blackballs Anti-Obama Book (No. 1 on NYT Times for 4th Week)

Original post made by Beyond Biased Media on Jun 13, 2012

This is wayyyy beyond being biased. As the author of the following article states, "this is an in-kind contribution to Obama by the mainstream media."

None of the mainstream media will talk about this book "The Amateur" by Ed Klein.

Web Link

At least the mainstream media is consistent.
They refused to talk about Mark Levin's best selling books either...

"Ameritopia" and "Liberty and Tyranny"

Also, David Limbaugh's terrific and powerful book about Obama, just out, called "The Great Destroyer" is also blackballed in the mainstream media.

We are fighting a 4th column in America. It is the media that doesn't do its job of investigative journalism anymore. Otherwise, we would have known a lot more about Obama's past.

I heard a very good interview of Klein on NPR and several others on our friendly rightwing radio waves.

Goodness sakes, though, my good friends the Koch brothers buy 100,000 copies and mail them free of charge to people on friendly rightwing name lists, and the NYTimes won't even give the book a serious review. Just goes to show you what is wrong with this country! If there were better proof of Obama being in way over his head, I'd provide it.

George Soros is said to be in negotiations to purchase the NY Times so that he can suppress the best sellers list. The Times said he's short on funds currently after propping up the amateur in the WH and his corrupt 'Justice' dept.
But, not to worry, the private sector is doing fine.......

"George Soros is said to be..." that is a good one. For goodness sakes I think I may use that one as well. Sort of like, "Well, I've been hearing..."

But in all seriousness, a loyal conservative newspaper such as the NYT under Soros' ownership would be a real loss for the good folks -- you know, nonteachers, nonwomen, nonfirefighters, nongays, nonpolice, nondiseased Republicans.

If you think the Times is conservative, you really do have an incurable case of the lefties. I knda miss receiving the Times, but after my pet bird died, there was no point in continuing my subscription.
Maybe you can find someone to read the Times to you and see if it's of any value. ta ta.

It appears the NY Times has reviewed it:

Not favorably, but that's their right, I suppose.

The mainstream media is doing everything they can to ensure the election of left-wing loons, including the left-wing tirant with dictator ambitions in the White House. It would be laughable if it weren't so serious. The things Richard Nixon was run out of the White House for were minor infractions compared to the crimes being committed by Obama and his henchmen. Meanwhile, the media keeps promoting Obama as the Messiah. People need to get off the controlled substances and do a reality check.

Let us not forget that the NYTimes banged the drums louder than any other newspaper in its support of my friend George Bush's righteous invasion of Iraq. Let us not forget that the NYTimes consistently reported that Sadam Hussien had ties with Al Quaeda; that Iraq had extensive chemical warfare factories all over the country; that Iraq was developing nuclear capability. Let us not forget that the NYTimes knew Bush administration was engaged in domestic wiretapping, and knew it in 2004, prior to Bush's triumphant victory over the communist John Kerry. However, the NYTimes did not publish its knowledge of the wiretapping for fear it would have impacted the 2004 election. Let us not disparage our good conservative newspapers. Of course the newspaper's grammar is proper, and its words are spelled, so of course our good Tea Party friends naturally believe that grammar = liberal elitism. Keep up the good work everyone! We must continue to combat the disease of liberalism.

Just because something's a "best seller" doesn't mean it's any good or has a lot of those pesky "facts" in it. If the Koch brothers are buying up tons of copies, they can keep it on the best seller list for a long time. Though they'll quickly run out of tea-partiers who can read...

And frankly, the private sector in many ways IS doing just fine... it just depends on your perspective. The fact that they're keeping wages down for average workers, not hiring as many as they could easiy support, and are sitting on massive record amounts of cash instead, is certainly a bummer for Main Street who is not "doing fine," but it's great for the private sector executives and Wall Street.

When you see that video of Romney palling around with his rich friends at their mansion/golf course, you see he would agree these are "good times" right now too. Just a matter of perspective.

Why do you need NYT to tell you about M. Levin's books? Just search it on and check reviews. There are 1273 5 star, 311 1 star, and zero 2, 3 or 4 star reviews.
By the way, about Romney playing golf with his rich friends. Who, in your opinion, pays $30000, usually more, for Obama's fundraising dinners? Working Americans? And in whose company did Mr. Obama and his family spend their 16 vacations during last 3 years, when only his Christmas 2011 vacation to Hawaii cost estimated $1.5 million?

I for one know that the NY Times, and anything else to the left of Weasel Zippers, must be nothing but communist-liberal loonyism.

As far as Klein's book goes, it's great! Did you know that Obama attended Jeremiah Wright's church or that he had a coffee meeting with a terrorist Professor of Education at Univ of Illinois-Chicago? None of this was EVER reported by the lamestream press. This is a huge scandal!!! Its being buried by the lamestreamer media communists (e.g. New York Times) who refuse to uncover the truth about Obama's terrorist activities and actual country of birth.

I love reading commentary like this. Those on the left are so incredibly disconnected from reality that it has really given me a nice morning laugh. The more I see it, the more I'm starting to believe that liberalism truly is a mental disorder. There is no other logical explanation, except maybe brainwashing.

Yes, the media have indeed blocked out anything having to do with how corrupt Obama is, who is friends are, what his beliefs are, etc. And now look at all of the people having voter's remorse! You people who voted for him did so because he was half-black and it made you feel good, plus he was a 100% empty suit and you could project anything onto him that you wanted---the man was whatever you wanted him to be. I find it scandalous that here we are, 3.5 years into his presidency, and there is still so much more that we don't know about the guy. It's disgusting.

Now, before you libs attack me (because that's what you do---you can't provide facts because the facts simply aren't on your side), make sure you light a candle in your living room where you have your altar to Obama---THEN you can attack me.

This entire "conversation" is making me feel ill. Politics, religion and 'how to raise your children' should be taboo here. Some of you could be my neighbors and I'd never know that you hated our president so much if it wasn't for this page.

Joe, I share your pain brother. And steve's too (just in case you're not the same poster). Here's some facts for the Obama worshipping libs to chew on:

Fact: Obama was a liberal loon professor of law at the Communist University of Chicago Law School. There he had his students take positions for AND AGAINST the Constitution. Not a single lamestream media source has recommended that he be tried in a court of law for his treasonous acts.

Fact: Obama was a militant agitator and organizer for ACORN which is responsible for putting at least 6.2 million ineligible voters onto the voting rolls. 27 former members of ACORN are now serving life sentences for their role in supporting Black Panther's Children's Breakfast Program.

Fact: Obama's pastor was Jeremiah Wright who was deeply implicated in the Communist John F. Kennedy's death. (There are untouched photos of Wright standing at Kennedy's hospital bed just prior to Kennedy being pronounced dead. I'll let you connect the dots.)

Fact: Obama has consistently palled around with terrorist Ph.D.s from a number of Communist universities. For example, he has appointed Cass Sunstein to his staff. Sunstein is an admitted Communist who supports RIGHTS FOR ANIMALS! He also writes propaganda books in which he claims to know something about the Constitution. I repeat: RIGHTS FOR ANIMALS! (I've reserved a special kick in the ribs of my dog in celebration of that one.)

Fact: Obama's wife doesn't like America, and she was once seen wearing a sweater worth $214,000.

We know enough about Obama to make our decision in November. He doesn't understand working Americans and doesn't care about their rights and interests. He is aggressively anti-christian because christianity promotes discipline and personal responsibility and he, as all liberals, hates personal responsibility most. He is anti-democrat and will do whatever possible to destroy small businesses because small business owners are the building stones of democracy in America. He has absolutely no respect to American values, American constitution and American people. I believe that everything else is not important.
By the way, only 4 years ago it was socially unacceptable to not hate the president of America.

Four more years of this President and he will think he is Putin, and he might very well bocome, wake up people, he is taking us into Federalist statehood, wake up Americans, there isn't much time left. Oh by the way, the private sector is doing just fine, we just need more government jobs. Anybody remember the W.P.A ? one shovel and six men to operate it.

Posted by Anon, a resident of Another Pleasanton neighborhood

Yes, it's clear that there are simply crazy people here... And it's particularly funny that they think Obama is out to destroy small business and destroy jobs and such when he's been trying to give every possible tax break and incentive, only to have each and every proposal (that were previously Republican positions!) rejected by the wing-nut tea-party-controlled House.

Even speaker "Boner" is well aware of and embarrassed by the hypocrisy of their positions now. THEY were the ones who first introduced and advocated for health care individual mandates; THEY were the ones who wanted all the various tax reductions and spending cuts. But now they have to say no to everything because the president is black and they can't stand it.

And frankly, they have publicly said they want the country to do poorly so that they can try to use that for political advantage. Now if they're purposefully making decisions to hurt the country, as they clearly are, isn't that essentially treasonous???

Have any of these crackpots even read the book? If so, did they not see that no new information was presented beyond what we have known for years? Is there any way to remove the trolls on these sites who pretend to be serious Republicans but are actually frauds who aren't serious readers like I am? Most importantly, why will my questions go unanswered? Something enormous is looming over the horizon, it is wet, and beaches and palm trees will offer little resistance. Wake up people!

I did in fact read the book and as quite alarmed by how unprepared President Obama was and is for such a high office. Regardless of your political leanings I would encourage all to read the book in order to educate yourself on why we are where we are and more importantly and frightening where we are going. Give it a read and is worth the money no doubt. Mine is presently being passed around the neighborhood and 2 of my neighbors have been shocked by what they learned.......cheers!

Thank you so much for your prescient analysis Brian. I bet people who know you call you Brain instead of Brian, am I right?

Please share. What specifically does the book reveal that wasn't already revealed in 2007-2008? Is it newsworthy that Jeremiah Wright feels Obama threw him under the bus? Has Obama been meeting secretly with terrorist professors of education at Univ of Illinois, Chicago? We're all anxiously awaiting your informed reply. Thank you in advance.

This is the best book I have ever read. It gives heeps of information about how Obama wasn't prepared for the office of Presidency and how McCain and Palin would have kept us out of the war with Iraq started by Obama, and how we could have escaped 9-11 had we been under Palin's leadership. Also, Obama's pastor was Jeremiah Wright who has now gone on record saying that he was treated unfairly by Obama the amateur. What more will it take to prompt the lamestream media to tell it like it is. I think Romney should take off the kid gloves and tell it the way it is. Obama smoked pot in college. Need I say more?
