Give Me A Break! Much Ado About Nothing

The uproar over Mitt Romney's comments about the Olympics is a typical example of the ridiculousness of the  media.

Talk about twisting words and spinning the context.

Talk about lame.

I have little respect for the  media.  And even less now.

Read the entire transcript of the interview of Mitt Romney by Brian Williams:

Here's a direct quote from the transcript:

"And in the short time you've been here in London, do they look ready to your experienced eye?


You know, it's hard to know just how well it were turn out-- will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting, the stories about the-- private security firm not having enough people-- the sup-- supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials, that obviously is not something which is encouraging. Because in the games, there-- there are three parts that makes games successful.

Number one, of course, are the athletes. That's what overwhelmingly the games are about. Number two are the volunteers. And they'll have great volunteers here. But number three are the people of the-- of the country. Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? And that's something which we only find out once the games actually begin."

If you prefer to watch/listen to the interview you can go here:

Now pray tell--what was so horrible about what Romney said????

How can what he said in any way be conceived as bashing????


Online dictionary definitions of bashing:

 Severe criticism.

A harsh, gratuitous, prejudicial attack on a person, group or subject.  

Now that you have read what Romney actually said compare it to the way it is represented in this article:

It does get old to  have fiction passed off as truth.

But that seems to be what the media does best.

If Mitt stepped in 'it', it's not of his own making.

The media is so full of 'it' that the stench and spill over is unavoidable.

They can't smell their own stink.

If you are taking what is reported as news at face value, you are being played for a fool.

Question everything that is stated, no matter what camp it comes from.

Do your homework.

Or be in the dark.
