The Newsweak Wimp Absurdity

facebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Newsweek continues its highly biased political agenda. As you may recall last May Newsweek declared  “President Obama is The First Gay President” after Obama announced his support for Gay Marriage. With one little photo shop gay halo, Newsweek managed to offend just about everyone in the US except perhaps the 1% US gay community.*

Now Newsweek asks the question of Obama’s Presidential opponent, Is he [Romney] too insecure to be president? Again Newsweek proves it is not news. It’s politics of the worst kind, a one sided propaganda machine.

Which is it Wimp or Bully?
This time Newsweak is in conflict with most of the left who refer to Romney as a bully. Romney has been portrayed as a “bully” for allegedly cutting the hair of a boy in grade school, and Obama adviser Robert Gibbs just called Romney to a “prep school bully” this past Sunday.


Yet DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Sasserman-Schultz agrees she had this to say regarding Romney, “The Whimp:”

“Well, I think Mitt Romney has demonstrated repeatedly he has a penchant for– for secrecy, doesn’t seem to have any interest in actually showing the American people his– his finances, decision– important decisions about his investments, refuses to come clean on ….”  Credit: The Blaze


How does Mitt Romney feel? Romney says that he isn’t sweating the upcoming Newsweek magazine cover. He says the media tried a similar criticism of President George H.W. Bush. Romney says Bush “was a pretty great president” who was not a wimp. In fact a 1987 Newsweek profile featured a profile of then-Vice President Bush with the title — “Fighting the ‘WimpFactor.’

How does left wing bias work for Newsweek? If you consider print distribution, not so good. Last week, Newsweek announced that it due to poor readership it can no longer afford to produce the printed version of its rag-o-zine. The owners of Newsweek says in order to reduce costs, the magazine will shift to online only in September. It has been widely reported by real news sources that Newsweek has been losing money the past decade and is completely BROKE.

Additional Left Wing Newsweek Bias:

Another example of Newsweek bias, Michelle Backman is framed as a ‘right-wing’ crazy in their August 2011 photo.

Lets not forget the wonderful Palin covers:

What Difference a Day Makes

By Guest Blogger Beth Pepoy

Back in high school I remember watching how quickly my peers elevated each other to popularity only to take it away the next day because that one individual failed to go along with the group.  The cycle would repeat itself regularly.  Daunting and contrite these certain individuals that formed this unique bond of endless unity often enjoyed casting stones at those whom differ from them, and laughed at their own malicious fodder.



On rare occasion that lone individual would do something that the whole school was talking about and would find themselves thrust into a prime seat at the lunch table.  Somehow over the weekend that somebody would be thrown off the island and once again exiled from the great lunch table of the chosen.

On June 27, 2012 Chris Matthews was exercising his right (sorry I mean left) to call Chief Justice Roberts; Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, whom in March 1857 delivered the opinion of the Supreme Court to rule against the plaintiff Dred Scott and concluded he was never free but still indeed a slave (click here, for an over view on Dred Scott vs. Sanford) (Click here for the actual text of the case).

The comparison would be baffling if you never watched Matthews or MSNBC, or irrelevant if you had forgotten the Dred Scott Decision all together.  Perhaps, this why Matthews and those alike continue to run their opinions as if they are actually fact based instead of their version of it and continue to lose viewers.

To see the supercilious absurdity in action watch this:

Not only does Matthews go beyond the media bias for all things left of center he also fails to realize that Chief Justice Taney was a democrat.

But wait there’s more!!

On June 28, 2012 Matthews declares Chief Justice Roberts a hero!  What? Huh? Why? Simple; Chief Justice Roberts appeared to rule in favor of Obamacare, thus garnering a seat at Matthew’s lunch table. Don’t believe me?  Just click the link below and watch for yourself.

While the opinions may vary on the Chief Justice’s decision to vote with the more liberal justices and alienating the conservatives. There may in all probability more to the actual story then what Matthews defines as heroic, I encourage anyone to read varying viewpoints and not let media bias determine it for you (click here and click here for examples).

In one day according to the ever refutable Matthews–Chief Justice Roberts has gone from zero to hero in 24 hours. Regardless of the ruling Matthews’s display of willful contempt one day to the hailing of the Chief Justice the next was yet another blatant display of media bias.

What will happen when the Chief Justice no longer appears to sides with the liberals of the Supreme Court Justices?   How will Matthews and others of his bias react then? As rhetorical as these questions are, one would venture to ask just one more.

When will Matthews’ get thrown off the island and be replaced at the lunch table?
