Comments: Howell Raines: Why Can't I Be You?

A campaign without precedent in modern history?
Howell how quickly you forget the campaign of the New York Times, under your leadership, to delegitimize George W. Bush. Sounds like editorial Alzheimer's has captured your puny brain cells. What a putz.

Through clever use of the Fox News Channel and its cadre of raucous commentators, Ailes has overturned standards of fairness and objectivity that have guided American print and broadcast journalists

How machiavellian for Ailes to use actual reporting and truth, instead of propaganda and spiking inconvenient facts, to undermine Obamacare. Reporting things like Rep. Ryan pointing out the blatant lie in reporting a 10 year cost for a 6 year charge, Cornhusker Kickback, coverage for illegal aliens, and abortion coverage truly reveals the biased nature of Fox News. A real journalist would have hidden all those inconvenient facts and only paraphrased White House press releases.

Whenever one wishes to see the modern Left's playbook, all you have to do is to look at what they accuse others of doing. The Left cannot imagine actually reporting the news or having a real debate so they project their dishonest machinations onto everyone else.

You have to laugh when any of these media nitwits complains about insufficient water carrying for the Dems. Their absolute disgust that someone actually dissents is hilarious.

The same Howell Raines who counseled John Kerry to lie in the 2004 election:

Raines thinks he is a big gun but maybe he doesn't read the papers since he SHOULD have known that a much bigger gun, Barack Hussein Obama, declared a War on Fox last fall. It lasted about four weeks and ended in a rout not seen since Egyptians were turned back from Suez. And O was at the height of his power then. What is killing these morons and what they are trying mightily to correct, is that even with their great intellects and moral rectitude, they STILL must function as business enterprises. And they are failing rapidly and yet more rapidly there. Hey, at least Raines got his golden parachute. His successors at the helm will receive none when they pull themselves from the wreckage, barring a King Georbe-esque madness enveloping Carlos Slim.
