Lib­eral me­dia have lost cred­i­bil­ity

The Washington Times Daily - - Editorial -

It seems that some of the me­dia are fi­nally feel­ing the heat for blindly and ar­ro­gantly cheer­lead­ing on Pres­i­dent Obama and Oba­macare. I think it’s a lit­tle too late for the lib­eral, bi­ased TV news net­works and news­pa­pers to come slith­er­ing back to the land of the real. They’ve al­ready lost all cred­i­bil­ity.

To th­ese me­dia mem­bers, I say: Step out­side of your feel-good shell for five sec­onds and walk around neigh­bor­hoods you haven’t been to in six or seven years. Look around at the changed at­ti­tudes, neg­a­tiv­ity and de­spair. Take a good look at what hap­pens when you try to re­move the no­tion of “the in­di­vid­ual” from a per­son, at what hap­pens when you de­cide to deem some­body in­ca­pable of find­ing his own job through strength and merit. It’s called crip­pling peo­ple for their votes.

If that’s what you truly wish this coun­try to be, at least have the courage to stand up and say it. A true leader en­cour­ages strength in oth­ers. A true leader is not in­tim­i­dated by pros­per­ity and growth. A true leader in­spires truth and love, not race and class war­fare. KRISTIN PRESCOTT Lynn, Mass.
