Journalists show their bias with breathless delight at Obama’s flip-flop on gay marriage


Unlike those “backwoods barbarians” in North Carolina, right Shep? As usual, the media showed its bias and Smarter Than You ™ attitude in spades.

Number of Americans who are surprised that Pres. Obama favors gay marriage: Zero.

That didn’t stop the press from gushing giddily!

ABC News did a network interrupt to report on Pres Obama's same-sex marriage comments in interview with GMA's Robin Roberts.

Three minutes after ABC ended its special report, NBC started one. Brian Williams now on the air with @ChuckTodd.

Stephanopolous labels this a "big move for the president" – rather than a "flip flop"

CNN anchor: "Bold political move by Obama!" Malarkey. Thx to Biden et al, POTUS had no choice left.

— Larry Sabato (@LarrySabato) May 9, 2012

Exactly. He was shamed into doing it by Vice President Biden, after the frantic attempts at walking back his endorsement of gay marriage failed.

RT @daveweigel Okay, Biden. Now say something about decriminalizing pot.

Joe Biden: Gay Icon.

Senior officials say President always planned to come out in favor of same sex marriage BEFORE elex; admit Biden, um, pushed up timetable

That also didn’t stop the drooling love-fest.

The life of a nation! Swoony swoon, isn’t he dreamy? Wonder if she is wearing pearls that she can clutch?

The Associated Press went with a tweet that stroked Obama and slammed those bitter bible clingers.

Obama says support of gay marriage may rankle religious conservatives, but Golden Rule guides his faith: http://t.co/zNMaOevN -EF

President Obama, and the MSM, would much prefer a month-long discussion of gay marriage to a month-long discussion of the economy.

Bingo. Plus it gives alleged journalists a way to pat themselves on their oh-so-enlightened backs as they sneer in contempt at “the unwashed masses.

Lapdog media? Indeed.
