Barack Obama’s Flying Circus

When Barack Obama takes off to Europe and the Middle East next week, he will be accompanied by three very desperate, pseudo journalists. While network news is dying a slow death much like the NYT, these three grossly overpaid Obama sycophants are tagging along in the hopes of raising the ever decreasing ratings of their decrepit news programs.

It is guaranteed to be a grotesque display of Obama idolatry masquerading as journalism. Katie, Brian, and Charlie are all tingly in anticipation of the large crowds they are sure will be there to greet the magnificent Obama at every stop. With backdrops in historic locales and adoring audiences, each of the three masters of vapidity are ready to kick their bias into full gear in order to make sure that all Americans know just how much their favorite candidate is loved overseas.

We are sure to be subjected to endless, stomach-churning comparisons of Obama to John Kennedy. Katie will do her perky best to insure that Michelle Obama is perceived to be every bit as popular in Europe as Jackie Kennedy was as First Lady. And of course there will be enough references to the “New Camelot” to make even your dog beg you to turn off the television.

What we are seeing here is nothing less than the three anchors becoming active participants in the Obama campaign. They have decided to travel with their candidate in an effort to promote him on a global scale, and in doing so, they use their networks as a vehicle to provide free campaign ads for Obama.

John McCain traveled to France, Britain and Israel in March, but none of three bothered to travel with him. He went to Canada last month and none the three networks even covered it. At most, McCain gets a correspondent on his trips, none of the big guns. Of course these anchors aren’t interested in McCain, he's a republican.

If you ever had any doubts that the MSM is in the tank for Obama, this event should clear them up. The networks are trying to send the not-so-subtle message that they already consider Obama the President, and so should you.
