Accurate Lies Continue

The lamestream media told you:

"Would Governor Leave Office For Job With Obama?" In a bylined article, Mathew Benson writes, "Gov. Janet Napolitano isn't thinking about her chances at a spot on the Democratic presidential ticket, she assures."

"She isn't focused on scenarios under which she'd land a choice Cabinet spot in a Barack Obama administration... But... politicos are buzzing about the likelihood Napolitano will receive an offer she won't want to refuse, enticing her to abandon the final two years of her term."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Abandoning any vestige of ethics and confirming fears of news consumers that the media will publish without question even the most outlandish nonsense as long as they quote it correctly, Gannett's number two newspaper, The Arizona Republic, featured obvious, self-evident silliness on page one in its June 9 issue.

"The deceptive attribution 'she assures' fools no one," says one anonymous news-media observer, "except perhaps the lapdog reporter promoting the obvious lie."

Even dull news readers recognize that a political animal like a governor, who was an early supporter of Obama, has given thought to the possibilities if the man is elected, especially with "politicos" all speculating on what post she might be offered.

"It's like saying, 'Don't think of a zebra' and then believing a zebra doesn't come to mind. No, it's worse than that," the anonymous observer assures.

An ethical reporter might have said, "The governor doesn't want to discuss the chance that she might get a tempting offer from Obama, or what offers they may have already discussed when she agreed to give him her endorsement." Instead he chose intelligence-insulting balderdash, but the public is getting used to such bald affronts from lamestream reporters and their complicit editors.
