Where Are The Real Journalists?

Watching the ObamaMedia swing into action daily, breathlessly reporting on every move and 'never-before-done' feat of their savior reminds me of a modern-day remake of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. Critics commonly draw parrallels between this 1956 film classic and 'McCarthyism'. However, the film's production supervisor, Walter Mirisch, director Don Siegel, and screenwriter, Dan Mainwaring only saw this work as a thriller. But, watching the one-minded narrative and unquestioning devotion of the majority of the mainstream media to the One, I can't help but be reminded of the callous, mindless, plant-clones in Invasion Of The Body Snatchers who replaced the real townspeople in the movie with a populace more in line the common goals of their own image for humanity.

Newsbusters provides just a sample of the fawning media coverage given to Obama, he who can do no wrong in their wondering, adoring, starstruck eyes.
