Obama Lies Again About "Change" - Will Fish Wrapper Report?

A good article at Hot Air about more of Obama's lies told during the campaign:

To put the old song on its ear, everything new is old again. Remember when Barack Obama said this?
To rousing applause, Barack Obama formally announced this afternoon that the Democratic National Committee will follow his lead and begin refusing donations from registered lobbyists and special-interest political action committees. “They do not fund my campaign,” the presumptive Democratic nominee told a small-town southwest Virginia crowd, after delivering a standard refrain that blames drug and insurance interests for blocking universal health care. “They will not fund our party. And they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I’m President of the United States.”

They may not have funded his campaign, although that’s highly questionable, but the Washington Post reports that they’ll be running his government. Obama has tapped a number of lobbyists for high-profile positions in the transition team, and most of them will likely end up with significant leadership roles in the coming Obama administration:

Barack Obama campaigned on a pledge to change Washington, vowing to upend the K Street lobbying culture he encountered when he joined the U.S. Senate. But more than a dozen members of President-elect Obama’s fast-growing transition team have worked as federally registered lobbyists within the past four years. They include former lobbyists for the nation’s trial lawyers association, mortgage giant Fannie Mae, drug companies such as Amgen, high-tech firms such as Microsoft, labor unions and the liberal advocacy group Center for American Progress. Mark Gitenstein, one of the 12 transition board members who will play a significant role in shaping the Obama administration, worked on million-dollar lobbying contracts with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and promoted legislation for giant defense contractors Boeing and General Dynamics. Until this fall, he was registered to petition Congress and the Securities and Exchange Commission on behalf of AT&T, Merrill Lynch, KPMG, Ernst & Young and others. Gitenstein has blue-chip credentials for the volunteer role on the Obama team. He was chief Democratic counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee during confirmation hearings for controversial Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork; was a close adviser to Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s White House bid; and served as counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Ignored Story - More Liberal Hypocrisy From Hillary Clinton

Here is yet another story you most definitely won't see in the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper. After Don Imus made his now famous quote about the Rutgers women's basketball team, Hillary-ous jumped on the bandwagon, and sent out a signed e-mail saying that Imus' words "showed a disregard for basic decency and were disrespectful and degrading to African Americans and women everywhere."

However, apparently that outrage only manifests itself when campaign money isn't involved. On March 31st, Hillary-ous attended a fund raiser event for her campaign hosted by Timbaland, a hip-hop producer and performer who is known for his misogynistic lyrics. The hypocrisy was noted by Colbert I. King in the Washington Post.

Dead Fish Wrapper Plays Up Anti-War Protests, Hides Much Larger Pro-Life Rally

So here's a question for you; you're a newspaper, and there are two national events to be covered. First, an annual conservative march that has hundreds of thousands of people, and second, a liberal march that draws only in the tens of thousands of people. How do you cover them? Do you a) give the one with the much larger attendance more coverage, or do you b) give the smaller one much more space because it's a liberal event?

Knowing the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper, this one isn't hard to figure out; the answer is b.

On January 22nd, the annual March For Life took place on the mall in Washington, D.C. The protesters numbered in the hundreds of thousands. According to LifeNews:

DFW Promotes Democratic "Bipartisanship" But Hides Truth

As was to be expected, The Dead Fish Wrapper (along with the rest of the MSM) was drooling all over itself in its excitement that the Democrats control both houses of Congress. This is in stark contrast to the way they treated the Republicans when they came to power in 1994.

In addition, they trumpet the Dems talking about how they will work with the Republicans, but yet they hide the truth about how in reality they will be excluding the Republicans.

As with almost all Fish Wrapper articles in the front section, they come from the various wire services. The front page article was headlined "History reserves seat for Pelosi", and goes on and on about how the day belonged to Pelosi and all her quotes about partisanship.

It's Time For Liberals To Put Their Money Where Their Mouth Is

Have you ever noticed that liberal will always jump up and down and sing "Hallelujah!" when a conservative "comes around" the their point of view, but scream and holler when a liberal dares to agree with a conservative point of view?

Today's exhibit of the first part of that dichotomy is the column by E.J. Dionne, Jr. of the Washington Post about Sen. Barrack Obama's visit to Saddleback Valley Community Church.

Dead Fish Wrapper Publishes Column With Known Lies and Misstatements

Today, the Dead Fish Wrapper proves once again that it doesn't like to let the facts get in the way of an inflammatory columns with lies and misstatements if it promotes a liberal agenda. Today's example is a column from the Washington Post written by Laurie David (wife of comedian Larry David) entitled Science a la Joe Camel (to which the Fish Wrapper ads its own subtitle of "Deep-pocketed corporate interests are targeting the kids in our classrooms with junk science").

MSM Continues Negative War Propaganda

In it's continuing quest to publish as much liberal drivel as possible, the Fish Wrapper continues to publish as many liberal Bush haters as possible. Today's liberal blather is provided by Marie Cocco. In her column entitled Taking Stock of Lessons Learned (renamed to "Lessons to be learned from our blunder in Iraq" by the DFW), Ms. Cocco trots out all of the typical liberal talking points about the war.

The Iraq invasion was a political choice, not a necessity of national security. If we were befuddled, or scared out of our wits by the Bush administration's rhetoric about weapons of mass destruction and its false linkage of Iraq with the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, our suspicions should have been aroused by White House hucksterism: ``From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August,'' White House chief of staff Andrew Card said in explaining why the president waited until the fall of 2002 -- on the eve of the midterm congressional elections -- to begin selling us the faulty Iraq product.
