Media malpractice: Press pushes to hurt Romney with Mormon bigotry, Left follows lead


The press continues their role as good little lapdogs by constantly trying to create an issue with Mitt Romney’s Mormonism. Not only is this bigoted itself, but it is fomenting bigotry. Twitter was onto the press in this regard ages ago, but that hasn’t stopped them from continuously running with heavily biased articles that insinuate “oh, look at those cuckoo pants Mormons!”

They want to push that narrative and Democrats are gladly following their lead, already being bigoted themselves. The latest hateful example is North Carolina Democrat state representative Alma Adams who said that Romney will “struggle because he can have multiple wives.

Congrats to Rep. Alma Adams, who is now relevant for a day. Ignorant, but relevant.

Seems Dem (NC) Alma Adams forgot @SenatorReid is a Mormon! http://t.co/asufYc1r #tcot #sgp #LNYHBT #news #media #FoxNews

Weird, huh?

It’s weird how the press doesn’t report on the fact that it is only Democrats who have this discriminatory religious issue. Instead, they feed into it by running a gazillion “dude, it’s totally like  Big Love” and “polygamy and cults and ZOMG Mormons” articles.

Democrats are trying to flee from Adams.

Impt for Dems like me to condemn any attempt to tar Romney with a practice that ended 120 yrs ago. And I do condemn it. http://t.co/myWWts1e

NC Rep. Alma Adams right 2 apologize 4 her comments on Mitt Romney & the Mormon faith. No place in our political dialogue for such comments

— Brad Woodhouse (@woodhouseb) May 18, 2012

But that’s all a front, as was her faux-pology.

NC state Rep Alma Adams apologizes for Mormon remarks. "regret making them & am sorry for any hurt or misunderstanding they may have caused"

They know that they can rely on their buddies in the mainstream media to do their bigoted dirty work for them.

If the media were interested in Mormonism, they could've asked Reid about his faith at any point in the past 25 years.

— Kevin Eder (@keder) May 17, 2012

However, the media isn't interested in Mormonism. They're interested in destroying Mitt Romney.

Bingo. There are even outright threats from alleged journalists.

And Chuck Todd accuses Romney of “bullying” because he won’t let the press foment bigotry against Mormons.

@seanhannity Harry Reid is Mormon so why is Romney's faith coming into question by the left wing media?

— Ed burns (@edbass56) May 18, 2012

Montana Governor, Democrat Brian Schweitzer grossly slammed Mormonism last month with the media’s blessing. They are trying to feed into bigotry to aid The One.

What’s a little fomenting of hate so long as it aids President Obama’s election campaign? The lapdog media at work.
