Gen. Colin Powell’s endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama is an important news story.
But instead of reporting it, MSM Obama-crats are hyping it.
At Politico, for example, Mike Allen & Jonathan Martin began their “report” with this “wow” sentence:
Retired Gen. Colin L. Powell, one of the country's most respected Republicans, stunned both parties Sunday by strongly endorsing Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for president on NBC's "Meet the Press" and laying out a blistering, detailed critique of the modern GOP.Stunned both parties?
The endorsement had been expected for months.
Seth Wells at Huffington Post on Aug. 13 began:
Former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski tells the Huffington Post that he "expects" Gen. Colin Powell to endorse Barack Obama for president. …NY Times columnist Bill Kristal and columnist Bob Novak are others who weeks ago predicted Powell would endorse Obama.
When it was announced Powell would appear on Meet the Press this past Sunday, many in Washington political circles speculated he’d use the occasion to endorse Obama.
Allen and Martin shouldn’t have used the Powell endorsement to hype for Obama. They’re supposed to be reporters, not cheerleaders.
But they weren’t the only MSMers “wowing” for Obama. Open some of the links in this U. S. News & World Report story and see for yourself.
