Now let's turn our attention to reporting (or not reporting) about hurricanes.
President George W. Bush was castigated by the MSM (and Obama) for flying over but not landing in New Orleans, LA. The MSM failed, and still fails, to mention the reason why Bush did not land: he did not want to disrupt on-going rescue operations. But the MSM failed to make a big deal of inactions by New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin, Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco, or Louisiana senator Mary Landrieu. Now we learn, in an article by Daniel Halpern, entitled "Obama Will Have Made 7 Campaign Stops Before Visiting Where Hurricane Hit," that President Barack Hussein "kill list" Obama will not let Hurricane Isaac get in the way of his campaigning. He plans to arrive in New Orleans three days after Mitt Romney. And we learn that Obama discussed Hurricane Isaac while aboard Air Force One as he flew to Washington DC from a campaign stop in Colorado. He did not even fly over New Orleans! Did the MSM miss all of Obama's actions? Were they just too busy worrying about Romney's tax returns to report on Obama's Hurricane Isaac actions?
Some of you will say that Hurricane Isaac (Category 1 when it hit New Orleans) cannot possibly be compared to Hurricane Katrina (Category 3 when it hit New Orleans). Well, if that's so, then why does the MSM report on any natural disaster? A natural disaster is a natural disaster, regardless of category (or magnitude or force). But the MSM somehow fails to see it that way when politics are involved.
Double standard? Reporting on a hurricane and after-actions is treated differently by the MSM when politics come into play.
But that's just my opinion.
