Watchdogging the Corrupt Media's Convention Coverage
8:00 -- ABC News Compares Ann Romney and Michelle Obama's Dresses in Class Warfare-Baiting Segment - Tony Lee
ABC News runs a segment on Michelle Obama's J.Crew dress. Michelle Obama has effectively used J.Crew to come across as the average housewife. When Michelle Obama sports something from J.Crew, the site crashes and sells out of whatever she wore, which creates more buzz, which allows more people to associate "commoner" Michelle with J.Crew.
So what does ABC News do after Mrs. Obama's speech?
They profile her J.Crew dress (what other dress would she wear when her husband is on the ropes?) and politicize it by comparing it to Ann Romney's more expensive dress.
Message: Michelle is just like you. And Ann is a snooty, clueless, out of touch person disconnected from all reality who is NOT like you.
ABC News (or Entertainment Tonight?.. I'm not sure what I'm watching), reports Michelle Obama's dress cost $500, which is still very expensive. They mention Ann Romney wore an Oscar De La Renta dress during her speech that cost $2000.
They make no mention of Michelle Obama having been photographed with $1000 purses and $7000 jackets.
So, riddle me this: Ann Romney is beyond wealthy so she can afford her dress. Michelle Obama, though, gave a speech yesterday in which she painted herself as the common woman ... so could a case not be made that Michelle Obama is spending beyond her means (?), if we want to play this game. Could this not be a metaphor for the way her husband spends taxpayer monies?
7:54 -- Debbie Wasserman Schultz Blatantly Lies To CNN Because She Knows She Can
Wasserman-Schultz lied her shameless ass off on CNN just now, telling an interviewer there was a two-thirds vote to change the "God and "Jerusalem" language in the platform (there wasn't), there was "no discord" during the vote (there was), and that there really wasn't a language change (there was).
This is the second time today Wasserman Schultz has been caught telling a blatant lie to the media and just a few minutes after smearing Paul Ryan as having a "credibility problem," the only indignation the CNN panel could manage was for Anderson Cooper to say she "lives in an alternate universe."
Wasserman Schultz lie to CNN because she knows she can get away with it … and she did.
7:42 -- After Ryan Interview, CNN Kills Themselves To Lie About Obama Gutting Welfare
All Ryan said in his Piers Morgan interview is that Obama "watered down" welfare reform. But that was all the The Most Trusted Name In Obama-shilling Network needed as a pretext to have Erin Burnett and some other guy go off on a long-winded rant to protect Obama from the fact that he has opened the door to gutting the historic 1996 welfare reform bill.
Actually, this wasn't shilling on CNN's part -- I take that back -- it was outright lying.
7:40 -- Piers Morgan Says Ryan Has To Be Careful About His Credibility
After Piers Morgan spent most of his interview with Paul Ryan trying to get the VP nominee to admit people are better off now than when that evil George Bush left office, afterwards Morgan pretty much told Wolf Blitzer that Ryan is picking up a reputation for being dishonest and that he needs to be careful.
Of course there was no mention that this "reputation" has been completely fabricated by a media that like a good dog, does what Obama tells them to do. If you recall, it was Wolf Blitzer who, seconds (literally) after Ryan's speech ended, was screaming over the applause in the hall, "The fact-checkers are going to have to take a look at this!"

7:38 -- CBS Extols Virtues of Obama's Federal Government Job Training Program- Tony Lee
CBS evening news profiled a blue collar worker, the type of Reagan Democrat who represents the heart and soul of this country. This voter has all the makings of the undecided voter. After CBS profiles this worker -- the segment had a lot about job retraining --- CBS runs a graphic that shows Obama would fund job retraining programs. The next graphic says Romney would also fund retraining programs but would "shift the burden to states and private companies."
CBS's message is simple to its viewers: Obama, despite presiding over an economy in shambles, cares about jobs. And Romney doesn't. And the federal government does a better job of retraining workers. And please do not consume any other types of media.
7:30 -- CBS News Pretnds Obama's Bank of America Speech Was Sold Out - Tony Lee
CBS Evening News profiles Obama supporters who waited for hours in lines that snaked for blocks to make it seem like there was more demand for tickets to Bank of America Stadium than there was. They made no mention of the tickets that the Obama campaign were giving away. The Obama campaign so desperately wanted to fill the stadium that even mischievous Republicans were able to get tickets.
7:21 -- MSNBC Panel FREAKING Over Dems Caving On God and Israel
Even MSNBC knows that what happened today with the platform change is a disaster, and while I normally don't care what the openly partisan media is talking about, it is fun to see the panic in Rachel Maddow's eyes and hear Alex Wagner rage against Dems caving in favor of Israel.
In other news, Alex Wagner and Rachel Maddow are in the same room which should end speculation they are the same person but not the speculation that they're both wrong about everything and insufferably smug.
7:08 -- NBC's Chuck Todd Laughs off Democrats Booing God and Israel
The same race-baiting Chuck Tood who accused the GOP of tokenizing their non-white conventioneers for the cameras, just told the story of the embarrassing spectacle we saw today where Democrats weren't able to get two-thirds of their delegates to vote in favor of God and Israel.
Todd's demeanor in telling the story was to try and minimize the political impact of what it all means and to wrist-flick it as a silly distraction. This is how the media is able to say they dutifully report something but avoid turning it into a damaging narrative.
From all accounts, Chuck Todd goatee -- which a source tells me, smells like baby oil and broccoli -- appeared to agree wholeheartedly with this approach.

7:00 -- CNN's Anderson Cooper Asks If 'God' and 'Jerusalem' Will Distract Tonight
As with all distractions, it's up to the media what distract. We'll see how much CNN chooses to cover the extraordinary event of Democrat delegates booing and voting down God and Israel.
6:47 -- CNN's Wolf Blitzer:'Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night!'-- Tony Lee
CNN's Wolf Blitzer, when speaking to Brooke Baldwin, raised the curtain on the mainstream media's coverage and most likely spoke on behalf of the mainstream media when the inner Will.I.Am, the Obama super fan, in him said, "Tonight's gonna be a good night." Enough said.
6:25 -- Piers Morgan Twists, Folds, Mangles 'Four Year" Question To Get Answer He Wants
In a hilarious back and forth between Wolf Blitzer and Piers Morgan, two of Obama's dumbest but most loyal media shills, Morgan spoke at length about his interview with Paul Ryan. While telling the story, both of these Obama-worshippers practically twisted their mustaches with glee over how some convoluted question Morgan came up with supposedly flummoxed Ryan.
Overall, though, both Morgan and Blitzer were desperate to press the idea that Obama has indeed left us better off after four years. Blitzer then piled on with a damning indictment of George W. Bush's deficits as though Obama's RECORD deficits don't even exist.
Then Piers suggested Americans ask the famous "four year" question in a way Obama could come out the winner: "Are you better off then you were after the first year of the Obama presidency."
All I saw for the three days of the Romney convention was these two and most of the CNN crew HAMMER Romney and deflect for Obama. Now, during the Obama convention, CNN is doing the exact same thing -- hitting Romney and protecting Obama.
