Gingrich and the Fourth Estate

No one is better than Gingrich in pointing out the wretched double standard of the Mainstream Media:


I want to make two quick points, John. The first is there is a legitimate question about the power of the government to impose on religion activities which any religion opposes. That’s legitimate. But I just want to point out, you did not once in the 2008 campaign, not once did anybody in the elite media ask why Barack Obama voted in favor of legalizing infanticide.

Newt was referring to Obama’s opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act as a state senator in Illinois which would have mandated medical care for infants who survived abortion.  Go here and here for the nauseating details.  Imagine living in a country where the Mainstream Media played it straight and where most of it did not serve as unpaid press agents for one of the political parties.    Frankly, after living in America for the past half century I find that hard to imagine.
