MSM Tries to Transform McChrystal Controversy Into Obama Victory

Trying to turn a lemon into lemonade, the mainstream media has used President Obama’s handling of the McChrystal episode to rehabilitate Obama’s tarnished image.

Taking a pounding in the polls for his handling of the Gulf oil crisis, the economy, illegal immigration, big government programs such as Obamacare, etc., Obama was even beginning to get some flak from his usual supporters in the media. But that criticism was short-lived.

As if on cue,  Obama was called “brilliant” by CBS, NBC, and CNN  for deciding to fire General McChrystal and to replace him with the only realistic alternative – General Patraeus.

A montage of clips shown on the “O’Reilly Factor” and “Hannity’s America” shows the Obama cheerleaders in action. Here are a few examples of the mainstream media’s fawning descriptions of Obama’s decision.

CBS’ White House correspondent Chip Reid said,

it sounds like a pretty brilliant decision really.
NBC correspondent Jim Miklaszewski said that Obama’s decision was
stunning development…at a quick glance, almost brilliant
NBC’s White House correspondent Chuck Todd opined,
politically, in this town, it’s going to be seen as a brilliant choice by the President
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer raved,
a very brilliant move to tap General Petraeus
Either we are witnessing a mind meld amongst the various “brilliant” network correspondents or they are reading their accolades of Obama’s “brilliant” decision-making from the same White House talking points. The answer is probably some of both.
