Pet Peeve

One of my pet peeves is our 4th estate, the media. They have lost all sense of fairness and their fawning over our new President borders on the ridiculous! A sample of headlines four years ago after “W’s” inauguration party and after the recent party vividly points this out. These were pulled out of a recent e-mail sent to me by one of my Cousins.

Nothing like fair & unbiased coverage of the news!

Headlines After Bush’s Inauguration Party 4 Years Ago:

“Republicans spending $42 million on inauguration while troops Die in unarmored Humvees”

“Bush extravagance exceeds any reason during tough economic times”

“Fat cats get their $42 million inauguration party, Ordinary Americans get the shaft”

Headlines After Obama’s Inauguration Party:

“Historic Obama Inauguration will cost only $120 million”

“Obama Spends $120 million on inauguration; America Needs A Big Party”

“Everyman Obama shows America how to celebrate”

“Citibank executives contribute $8 million to Obama Inauguration”

“W” sometimes stumbles with his words and that was the reason the new President stumbled during his swearing in ceremony. It was Bush’s fault!
