Will the media be able to cover the myriad Obama scandals?

Expect most of the traditional media, whether by inclination or inability (or both), to show itself to be incapable of adequately covering the myriad Obama Administration scandals.

Why? As a group, they’ve shown themselves to prefer to bow down to the President rather than to challenge him.

Additionally, one of media’s fundamental advantages, people willing to tell the truth, has been placed at risk by… the Obama Administration. This will be seen in the dwindling number of government whistleblower-type sources available to writers as a result of (for example) the campaign against Fox News correspondent James Rosen and the massive AP wiretaps. (Or restated, we’re in an era of the selective criminalization of almost everything, that is, if those things don’t support the President’s agenda.)

Is Mr. Obama the most paranoid-delusional President since Richard Nixon? No, that’s an insult to Nixon. Instead, Obama’s the most paranoid-delusional President ever. If Mr. Obama had a parenthetical “R” besides his name, the media would be coming after him with pitchforks and blowtorches.

And in related news, George Orwell was a prophet.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
