Obama Then and Now: Fox News Video Takes Hard Look at "Hope and Change" (Youtube)
May 31st, 2012

Apparently Huffington Post took extreme issue with Fox on the airing of this video, which was later removed by Fox.
In fact, many, including Conservative Ed Morrisey of Hotair, in addition to virtually all of the Axis Press, took issue with this video as "way too partisan."
But is it really?
Initially, the Fourth Estate (which is the press for you Liberal pinheads out there) was established to both question power and to hold government accountable, certainly not to enable and encourage those within the halls of power to "take it to the limit" as most of the mainstream seems to do today.
So, while I would prefer a media which is centered in all things, I think this piece actually holds up the traditions of the media as originally intended by the Founding Fathers. But then there is one other thing that I would point out, with a special and pointed nod to Ed Morrisey and the entire Axis Press in the US.
Were the current paradigm of patently ridiculous sycophantic reporting not being done on a minute by minute basis, then this piece may, indeed, be a bit too much. But in the scheme of reporting what all of us have seen? No, this is nothing more than a brilliantly conceived balancing act for the rest of a heartily skewed and ridiculously slanted Fourth Estate.
Remember, the balancing function that nature always seeks, as continually witnessed by us all, quite oddly also assumes that we humans, including our thought processes, are the only entities that aren't natural that also exist on the planet.
When in fact, nothing could be further from the truth, which would largely explain that dastardly Fox News Producer's reasoning for running this in the first place.
By the way, the ultimate question in all of this would have to be, "Was the piece accurate?" If it was, ipso facto, making the report all true, then where, dear friends, is the actual foul?
Therefore, no mystery nor problem here for this piece, "Mr. Ed" and all the other pitiful excuses for media functionaries; it's simply nature's own complex way of running Her own balancing course, through our thoughtful expression.
