And we didn't let up.
FOX News, again proving itself the one and only fair and balanced cable news network in America, caught on and did its job, bringing the inconvenient truth from the internet to the boob tube, giving a wider audience of millions the straight dope on the big boob in question.
Is it any wonder that FOX News beats the crap out of the other networks in the ratings? People turn to FOX News far, far, far more than to the other guys. Because people know they can trust FOX News to deliver, that FOX News, unlike the others, isn't controlled by/submissive to the Regime.
But the rest of the Big Media remained obediently silent, not wanting to hurt the Regime that controls them.
The CNN only mentioned the 9/11 "truther" thing when mentioning the resignation in a brief little blurb. Not a word about any of the other scary-extremist stuff. Sheesh! What good is the CNN, then? They're virtually worthless! Screw the CNN!

Astonishing. The guy's a racist, a militantly revolutionary communist and a serial conspiracy theorist and he was in a powerful, unaccountable position in the Obama Regime. And those Big Media outlets said nothing. Nothing at all.
What good is the Big Media? They're Hard-Left-biased and can't be trusted to tell us important things we need to know. They cover up bad stuff about Leftists. They're definitely controlled by and populated by the Left! They're the propaganda arm of the Obama Regime!
Bloggers and online newsmedia websites did the job the Big Media refuses to do.
And the job's just begun. There's over thirty other "czars" who've been appointed by Obama without House consultation, without being vetted by impartial folks who'd raise an alarm about anything extreme and scary about someone who might be appointed to the Regime.
And, some of them at least, are very frightening. Like Nazi-frightening, as I've posted before on a few others.
Oh, and by the way, the Big Media refuses also to tell us the inconvenient truth about Obama, his past, his ties to radical, scary extremists even worse than Van Jones, and about the fact that Obama has not proven that he was born on American soil. They're not telling us that he's spent over 1.5 million dollars (likely illegally, considering where he's getting the money) on a legal army to prevent the release of his real, original, paper, long-form birth certificate, which is the only thing that can prove whether he was born on American soil, as required by the US Constitution for anyone to be eligible to run for and be President. The fact that no one asked for proof, and that Obama offered none, and that he got to run and was actually elected, is the big story that the Big Media is covering up. Hell, they demonize and pejoratively label those who ask legitimate questions, proving further that they're the Regime's propaganda arm.
If the Big Media had done its job, Obama wouldn't have even been able to run for President. The inconvenient truth would've been reported from the beginning, and there'd be no way the DNC would let the guy try for nomination. But the Big Media was part of the blatantly obvious cover up with respect to Obama's many, many horrible-optics extreme negatives so as to enable him to massively bullshit his way into the White House.
UPDATE: World Net Daily reminds us that they were first to expose Van Jones's extremism.
Joseph Farah, WND founder:
Who are we going to trust, the dishonest Obama White House and Big Media... or World Net Daily?
When the White House press corps finally grilled White House press secretary Robert Gibbs about "Green Jobs Czar" Van Jones last Friday, a reporter asked how the administration could reject "conspiracy theories" about his birth certificate while employing someone who previously charged the U.S. government with masterminding Sept. 11.
I found that to be an interesting juxtaposition.
Could the answer be as simple as the White House has no respect for truth? Will reporters and even some clamoring to position themselves as respectable "conservatives" and critics of Barack Obama figure out that deception and deceit are at the very core of this regime?
Do you expect those so ferociously attacking WND as a "conspiracy site" to recognize it was this news agency that first broke the Van Jones story in April and relentlessly pursued it for five months to the bitter end?
