Years ago Bernie Goldberg was telling the world how the media in his view had a quote slobbering love affair with then candidate Barack Obama.
24 months later he now says we are seeing President Obama paid real price for that.
Fox media analyst -- my guess now.
-- so you know -- to steal a phrase from.
From Reverend Wright have the chickens come home to roost what what is exactly the criticism of what's of the media and what we're seeing now.
Right it's about the irony of it all.
Two years ago.
This so called mainstream media fell in love with Barack Obama and that's not some.
Crazy delusional conservative view the ombudsman of the Washington.
Post said the same thing.
And and the Mark Halperin of time magazine which is not a conservative publication.
Said that this what the media behaved this gracefully.
During the campaign and it did.
Today this week actually Barack Obama's.
Approval rating is now to 45% which isn't horrible morning it's a -- forty according to Fox -- -- Right forty according to that which which isn't horrible but but it's so it's getting there and it's the lowest of his presidency.
No question Megan he brought a lot of this on himself by.
Supporting all sorts of things the American people didn't want but the irony is.
That the same media.
That fell in love with them that's -- heard all over him -- big for his enablers.
They created such unrealistic.
That no politician could live up to.
That the fall from grace was especially hard because the media try to create saint Barack they tried to create a messiah.
And when the people saw that when.
Won't try to walk on water and got wet the disillusionment.
Was much greater.
Then it would have been if the media had done its job and covered the campaign in more down to earth realistic.
Way he had farther to fall in other words and somebody else but.
Let me ask -- you -- -- Obama as also to blame to the extent you know he's had some policies that were unpopular with the public but let me ask you this.
It is he.
Or or are he and his team his White House team including folks like Bill Burton.
Robert Gibbs who are out there are -- for him as he was running for office -- -- once he's taken office are they also to blame Bernie because.
How many times have we heard not just the president.
But his team you know Burton Gibbs Axelrod that you know but what about health care advocates that he had -- -- the White House.
Taking shots at Fox News for being too critical they don't it that they have gone on offense it if you have you know too many segments that they perceive -- critical of the president.
Then they start attacking you is not a real news organization.
Yes it's a good point.
It when I say the president I should have said the president and his team I'm not I'm not suggesting.
Barack -- -- this fall from grace from a 79%.
Approval rating on inauguration day and everybody knows it couldn't stay that high.
Down to 40% in the fox poll.
Is all the media's fault I'm not suggesting that.
I'm saying the media by by creating this this this this kind of god.
-- I mean as I say this isn't a right wing delusional observation liberal journalists know that what I'm saying is true -- I don't I don't pass out.
That's right by creating that.
It -- the -- have to be hard if they have portrayed him if they had just done their job and portrayed him.
In a regular way the way you cover -- politician.
Which is what he is.
I don't think the fall would have been nearly as great and I'm guessing that even with all the stuff that he and his team have done.
I don't know that he'd be down to 40% of by the way what's the tips into the thirties.
And Denny's and really dangerous terrorists can't.
-- does the biased continue you know because just this week we saw.
Just one example the Washington Post came out with a piece that was very critical.
That was of a pro I was a sort of a cheerleading peace.
For the health care overhaul saying you know -- -- this ruling against the health care overhaul -- mean with no not to worry.
And they they attributed to staff writer.
And they came out a couple of days later and put Ezra Klein's name on it which wasn't a big surprise to those who know Ezra -- reporter -- reporting which is very.
Right yeah -- -- that's a very good point I'll tell you what I think the big problem with that is.
Ezra Klein is listed as a staff reporter I don't know him I've never met him I have absolutely nothing against him personally nothing at all.
But he's a regular contributor.
On several liberal talk shows on another network.
And he regularly.
Shares his liberal opinions.
I don't think any staff writer in other words he's not a columnist frank he so supposedly not an opinion writer.
I don't think a news organization.
Right or left should lead any.
Journalist any staff hard news journalists.
Go -- opinion shows and regularly give they're either conservative or liberal opinions because the people reading this stuff.
After they see him on TV.
They say wait a second he's he's collecting is -- -- I don't glad I didn't it yeah I Washington Post it's I -- I was -- that they didn't identify him and then a couple days later they attach his name to it in any event -- -- youth.
Well obviously using this -- right you don't know what that means you can sort of institutional peace but then you went to see name attached to it's like outweigh now that's the guy is always on.
You know such and such a network.
Anyway I got a rubber and not get a harbor break it's always interesting -- your insights.
Over everybody diplomat.
