Media Shocker: The LA Times Is Protecting Obama

The LA Times has a video. Not just any video, but a video of a U.S. Presidential candidate attending a party and providing a special tribute to Rashid Khalidi, an influential anti-Semite who "from 1976 to1982 was reportedly a director of the official Palestinian press agency, WAFA, which was operating in exile from Beirut with the PLO." The LA Times refuses to release this video.

POP QUIZ: Who is the Presidential candidate caught on this media-suppressed video praising a man with terrorist ties?

If you guessed Barack Hussein Obama, go to the head of the class . . . but don't expect your answer to become common knowledge prior to the November 4th election. Oh, And yes, I did use Obama's verboten middle name -- Khaki is in a foul mood.

OK, first of all, can we stop pretending that Barack Obama doesn't have connections with anti-Semitic friends? His church gave a special award to anti-Semite hall-of-famer, Louis Farrakhan. His Pastor had some pretty harsh words for our closest ally in the Middle East. He had help early in his career from out-spoken Israel hater Khalid al-Mansour. And now we learn that Obama was a "friend and frequent dinner companion" of Rashid Khalidi, even taking a significant part in his farewell party.

Second of all, can we stop pretending that Obama doesn't have connections with known terrorists? His ties to unrepentant domestic terrorist, William Ayers, are undeniable. And now we know that he was a lunch-munch buddy with the controversial Rashid Khalidi.

Finally, can we stop pretending that there isn't a media bias? The LA Times has this video, but refuses to release it? They claim that they will not release the video at the source's request . . . but that didn't stop them from releasing the story. Now, the Times claims that they are not suppressing the video and the fact that they printed so many details about the video is proof of that. That's a bit like saying, "I don't need to give you a slice a pizza when I can tell you what it tastes like." Despite The LA Times daft attempt at deftness, we all know the difference between one column of print off the front page and a video released via the media. And if you're really not sure about the difference, just ask the Reverend Wright.

The LA Times knows the reaction many Americans will have to watching Obama's response on video to "a poem recited at the party accusing Israel of terrorism and warning of consequences for US support of Israel." They know that thinking Americans are beginning to question the radical agenda and racist friends of Barack Obama. And they know that the video could turn the election.

Truth no longer matters to the mainstream media. The news they report is not born of journalistic integrity, but of a targeted agenda. Welcome to the new America. Change is already here.
