2008 Election News: Is It Time To Boycott The ‘Media’?

    As much as I have always enjoyed the news, having 24-hour news coverage has created story overkill and endless repetition.  It has also watered down the trustworthiness, reliability and sincerity of the news being reported and the complete honesty of those reporting the news. 

I remember when I could turn the news on and hear unmodified facts and honest follow-up questions.  Those days are gone; done with. It is embarrassing to watch the media – journalists/reporters/correspondents/anchors/personalities as they insert ridiculous allegations, speculations and unconfirmed reports just to turn two minutes worth of news into a half an hour discussion or argument.  It is ridiculous.  If we can’t turn to the ‘news’ for ‘uncontaminated’ information – who do we turn to?

Video: Father Michael Pfleger at Trinity Church

Below is a link to the video showing Father Michael Pfleger this past weekend at Trinity Church while Obama was in Puerto Rico.


I am sure that it is going to be difficult, but this is going to make it easier for Obama to distance himself from Trinity going forward.


I am beginning to get tired of ALL these “Fathers”, “Pastors” and “Ministers” in this campaign.  It seems to me that they are all looking for ‘book deals’.  I want to hear what the candidates have to say.  Hillary crying was in February.  It’s now May – almost June.  Let’s move forward people.  Enough of this foolishness.  This doesn’t help me to put $4.17 per gallon gas in my car!


These are not Obama’s word’s these are the words of a “Father” he knows.  It shouldn’t matter that Obama has known him for over 10 years.  I have known people all my life that I love but who would make me look like satan himself based on their lifestyles.  I may love them but I don’t believe what they believe. I should be judged based on the way I live my life not the way people I know choose to live theirs.


I’ve worked for people and therefore received money from people whose philosophies and behavior I do not believe in at all – 0%.  This is the world we live in.  No matter how we try, we cannot protect ourselves from people we associate with who act or think differently than we do.  Otherwise we would live in a bubble and our social education would be incomplete and inadequate.
