Even a radical leftist like Seymour Hersh thinks the media are obsequious toward President Obama. In an interview with the leftist U.K. paper The Guardian, Hersh said "It's pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy."
Hersh claims the Obama administration "lies systematically," yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him:
"It used to be when you were in a situation when something very dramatic happened, the president and the minions around the president had control of the narrative, you would pretty much know they would do the best they could to tell the story straight. Now that doesn't happen any more. Now they take advantage of something like that and they work out how to re-elect the president.”
