#rsrh QotD, I Knew That This Day Would Come Edition.

Bill Plante of CBS News – yes, one of the Big Three – upon hearing White House Press Secretary Jay Carney yet again try to spin away the fact that President Obama said something extremely stupid Monday about judicial review:

“What he said on Monday was an obvious misspoken moment, because he talked about the Court not being in the position to overturn acts of Congress. You‘re standing up there twisting yourself in knots because he made a mistake and you can’t admit it.”

More here, including the video (H/T: AoSHQ). Some of you are shocked: personally, I am not. I have long taken the position that the Media’s favorite story is The God Who Turned Out To Be A Man After All; when push comes to shove they hunger for that story, and quiver with eagerness to tell it. As the President will be discovering, this go-round.

PS: Yes, the press loves Obama. Just like I love a grilled ribeye, cooked medium, with a side of mashed potatoes and steamed green beans, and don’t stint on the butter.

    Sorry, can’t agree. They have no interest in taking him down, and will not pursue this for very long. They’ll be right back to kissing his… feet… and condemning any who criticize their One in no time.

  • acat says:

    The media *overall* has no interest in taking Obama down.

    Individual journos, though .. especially younger, less ideological ones .. will be drawn to this like flies to an outhouse.

    The collapse of a cult of personality is never pretty, this will be no exception.


  • NotSoBlueStater says:

    I read on the HuffPo today that NBC News is in a panic over the editing “mistake” on the Trayvon Martin 911 call. I’m actually quite sure it WAS a mistake. The editor was incapable of considering anything outside the prescribed narrative, so the edit felt fine — even accurate. Point being: I don’t think these folks are dishonest. Therefore, eventually their journalistic training kicks in.

  • Brad S says:

    Rob, look at it through the lens of comedians today. Who makes more money for those comedians: A dull Mitt Romney as President, or the current President?

  • jetty says:

    I agree with @Rob: The MSM is too invested in Obama and liberal ideology. Now way they turn on him. And @NotSoBlue, I disagree: these folks are dishonest.

  • acat says:

    jetty – the MSM is not a monolith any more than the VRWC is.

  • Rob Crawford says:

    acat — there is no such thing as a less ideological member of the press.
