President Obama Slams The Press: 'All It Does Is Feed Cynicism'

President Obama took another stab at the media on Tuesday, blaming it for spreading negativity and focusing too much on "phony scandals" rather than on the progress of the United States.

Speaking at the Democratic National Committee in New York City on Tuesday, Obama argued that the press was counteracting his mission and spreading "cynicism."

"The issues I’m fighting for, the issues that I will continue to fight for even after I leave this office, those issues are at stake," he said. "And we’ve got to be willing to fight for them. We’ve got to feel a sense of urgency about this at a time when, frankly, the press and Washington, all it does is feed cynicism.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Obama: thinking people understand, very clearly, that the press is not nearly cynical enough, in dealing with your administration.

Your domestic and international policies have been one epic fail after another.

With VAgate, IRSgate, APgate, Immigrationgate, NSAgate, andFastandFuriousgate, you cannot blame the press for having covered them; they were the polar opposite of "phoney scandals", sir, and they have all happened under your watch.

At the end of the day, you are enslaved to the large corporations and banks which brought you into power, and you will do anything to achieve the ends they dictate, no matter just how lousy they may be for the American people.

These wars, in which our finest military will be killed and maimed for life, are about corporate profit, and keeping the US dollar the world's reserve currency. That is simply the reality, and the American people are waking up to that reality.

And sir, I would strongly suggest that should another horrific incident happen in the US, another 9/11, but bigger, to further your war agenda, Americans are going to realize that none of the alphabet soup agencies in this country, the NSA, the DHL, CIA, and FBI, have been able to keep us safe, no matter how many times we are crotch-groped at the airport, and should be immediately collectively sacked, en masse.

The only thing that will, ultimately, keep the American people safe is for this country's government and military to stop mucking about in other people's countries to lay claim to their resources.
