We are second to none in our criticism of US media. More often than not, they are intellectually lazy and simply fail to ask hard questions of those in elected office. With some notable exceptions, they were willing accomplices and even open advocates during the 2008 election, helping to get their far-left candidate into the White House.
But we are also honest enough to speak up when someone in the media does the right thing. CNN's Jack Cafferty is calling out TeamObama and the leftist Democrat leadership in Congress regarding broken promises about transparency in government. He's exactly right: They describe healthcare talks as "informal," and that is politispeak for "secret." Watch this scathing rebuke:
Breitbart TV posted an excellent video compilation here, showing candidate Barack Hussein Obama promising eight times to televise healthcare discussions on C-SPAN. Cafferty's criticism seems right on the money.
UPDATE: CBS also mentions Obama's brazen dishonesty here.
Should our legislators work behind closed doors? Or is transparency important to the process?
