As predictable as the sun rise, America’s “news” networks elevated the story of a congressional aide quitting her job into a national news story Monday night – solely because it involved a Republican criticizing the president’s daughters.
The same networks that maintained a virtual silence on Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s statements about the lies and deceit that helped pass a law that’s still tearing the nation apart made a major deal about a minor story involving Elizabeth Lauten, former communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher, R-Tenn.
The news media that reported robotically on President Obama’s “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” promise, found the energy to root through the juvenile records of a congressional staffer no one ever heard of before Thanksgiving, and will likely never hear of again.
Anything to distract voters and feed the Democrat agenda of Republicans as bullies.
Six years into the Obama Era, the American “news” media continues to disgrace itself, but as the midterm elections showed, the American public is tired of getting fooled. And the reaction to the Lauten coverage shows it.
NBC Nightly News just tee’d up segment on… the resignation of Elizabeth Lauten. (How is this one of the most important stories of the day?)

Elizabeth Lauten (evil GOP staffer) was story on all three nightly newscasts tonight. Slow news day, I know, but…come on.

Gruber trolled American voters much worse than Lauten trolled Sasha and Malia. Guess which one got more coverage?
