View Diary: Anne Romney Caught Making Jokes About The Fake Moms Outrage (190 comments)

  •  Anne, like Mitt, seems to have a truth problem,... (8+ / 0-)

    and the problem is:  They can't tell the truth.  

    Rosen wasn't critical of her "as a mother".  The reality is that Anne is a coddled wealthy woman who--unlike the majority of other moms--has the means to do as much or as little work, including routine day-to-day child care, as she chooses, with the ability to hire paid help to do the things she doesn't want to or doesn't have time to do.  

    But then Anne, like Mitt, conveniently likes to ignore the truth and instead to make up her own version of reality.  Unfortunately, many of the "journalists" who are paid to challenge dishonest politicians--and their reality-challenged wives'--lies don't have the sense (or the courage?) to call out the liars and challenge their lies by confronting them with the truth.

      I sure don't see any or read too many who are "in the mainstream". Although I hate the concept that rightie talkers claim to not be the mainstream media (lamestream media anyone?), it is true that almost ALL televised media and MOST print media are no longer "journalists" in the Woodward and Bernstein sense of the term.

      •  Sadly, I agree. True journalists are few and... (0+ / 0-)

        ...far between.  Investigative reporters like Jack Anderson who aren't either intimidated by and/or worshipful fans of those in power are also hard--if not impossible--to find now.

          used to like Jack Anderson. Thanks for the link, what a bio he has!
