Blogs Point Fingers at Media on Romney’s Libya Views

Both President Obama and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney have had their say on the Libya incident, in which a U.S. ambassador was killed Tuesday. Now several bloggers have loaded their guns and are pointing them at the news media.

Romney was widely criticized for his comments on the Obama administration’s handling of the attacks. He said the administration’s own response to the attacks was an “apology” for America.

NYT editorialized that Romney “showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character by using the murders of the Americans in Libya as an excuse … to attack Mr. Obama…” WaPo called Romney’s critique of Obama’s foreign policies “crude.” USA Today said Romney “erred in moving so quickly to make political hay of an unfolding tragedy.”

In a post today, RedState‘s Erick Erickson argues that the media, led by “group think,” wanted the “focus on Romney” rather than what he saw as the president’s own shortcomings on foreign policy. He took names:

“I get that Chuck Todd is a former Democrat hill staffer. I get that the Politico is riddled with Democrats, some former activists and a former staffer for Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I get that Michael Scherer from Time magazine is a left wing reporter for Mother Jones and Salon.com turned respectable, “objective” journalist. I get that Ben Smith, leading up Buzz Feed, is a left wing journalist paraded about as if he is some sort of objective reporter at a trendy site full of cat photos. [Editor's Note: Totally forgot to include Journolist and have updated to include it] I get that precious Ezra Klein started Journolist so reporters and political operatives could collaborate on the news and narrative and now he sits at the Washington Post and gets trotted out as a fact checker.”

Erickson, however, does credit Slate‘s Dave Weigel for writing that Romney’s comment wasn’t a gaffe, but a consistent view on foreign policy.

Over at WaPo‘s Right Turn blog, Jennifer Rubin largely made the same argument as Erickson: The collective media didn’t concentrate on the real issue at hand, the death of an ambassador, a delayed response from the White House. “What [Romney] said was valid then, as it remains valid in retrospect…” Rubin wrote today. In a separate post Rubin took another swipe at the media, arguing that conservatives have not turned against Romney as some have suggested. “The mainstream media… decided that Romney was ‘isolated’ or in trouble with Republicans,” she wrote. “Perhaps the media don’t know very many conservatives. Or perhaps they thought a few moldy Beltway insiders were representative of the party at large. … If the media are going to rally to Obama, then, by gosh, conservatives are going to rally to Romney.”

Quotes of the Day

Words to Live By: Ever Heard of Google?

“I don’t know about you guys, but every time b4 I report an ‘exclusive’ I’m all up in Google News making sure that it actually is one.” — Capital NY’s Joe Pompeo.

Scribe unnerved by first gray hair

“Fear I have just discovered my first gray hair. Not cool.” — WaPo‘s Aaron Blake.

Text sent to us Wednesday: “Now that I know who Ezra Klein is, I see him all the time and he is soooo annoying.” Oh, Ezzy, don’t even listen. Person is just jealous! (Not really, but isn’t that what everyone says when someone’s TV personality gets knocked?)

Healthcare vote lacks drama

“The drama seems to be lacking in this health care repeal vote. Maybe they should have held off until Christmas Eve to build tension.” — NYT Deputy Washington Bureau Chief Carl Hulse.

Journo is anti-Slurpee

“Stopped by 7-11 on way @FLOC_DC. Kids being encouraged by parents to fill up slurpees over&over again (free slurpee day). Humanity, doomed.” — Catherine Andrews, Director of Digital Content at Home Front Communications and former editor of Washingtonian.com.

Dirty newsroom banter

“O/H in the newsroom, coworker asking about poker strategy: ‘what does it mean when old men nut on me?’ ‘that’s not poker.’” — Roll Call HOH writer Neda Semnani.

The Observer

“Ah Cavuto explains the weird sound in background was from a ‘generator.’ what is it with Cavuto and interviews with background noise?” — ABC News reporter Matt Negrin on FNC’s Neil Cavuto.

Left & Right Media Wars

“Oh, and if you’re wondering how this story would be covered if Jackson were a Republican? You already know how this story would be covered if Jackson were a Republican.” — The Daily Caller‘s Jim Treacher in a post about Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.‘s (D-Ill.) whereabouts. Interestingly enough, this appears to make little sense. When you search “Where in the World is Jesse Jackson Jr.”, some 19,000 hits come up. It appears all sides are covering the congressman. Relentlessly.

Fish Poll Results: Last week we asked you to choose how best to get through a hot summer slow news day. Coming in at 26.66 percent: Michelle Fields‘ TV cleavage. “Watch the heat index shoot up as Daily Caller reporter Michelle Fields’ cleavage plunges down.” Two answers received second-place status at 23.4 percent. 1. “Tally the number of times FNC’s Bret Baier tweets about his son’s summer activities.” 2. “Create a shade chart to measure how sunburned MSNBC’s Chris Matthews‘ face gets.”

Breitbart Grief Porn: The Unusual Phenomenon

Over the weekend, Breitbart.com associates unveiled a brand new website. Longtime Breitbart business partner, Larry Solov, wrote that this was what Andrew Breitbart “dreamed and planned” before his sudden death last week. Solov says, “Andrew’s battle – our battle – has only just begun.”

But that isn’t all that has begun. It seems there is a strange online phenomenon, an explosion of Breitbart grief porn happening one click, one avatar at a time.

The battle, at least on the newly unveiled Breitbart.com, begins with a piece posthumously filed by Breitbart titled “The Vetting.” Just weeks before he died, Breitbart warned that he would lead the charge to vet President Obama and warned that he had videos. In this latest piece, Breitbart exposes that Obama took part in a panel that occurred following a Chicago production of a play called “The Love Song of Saul Alinsky.” While it seems a thin start to the vetting the website promises, you can bet that there’s always something brewing in the Breitbart camp.

To us, that’s the legacy of Breitbart. You never knew what was going to happen next. Each story and stunt seemed more outrageous than the last. We’re happy to just leave it at that.

But, others want to take it further. Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi infamously called his remembrance of Breitbart “Death of a Douche.” Which led to Slate asking the question, “When Did Douche Become an Insult?” Have we really gotten there in the Breitbart debate? Does Slate really need to go that far off the map to keep the Breitbart topic alive? And this came after allowing writer Matt Yglesias to gloat over his death on Twitter.

Twitter isn’t any more sane when it comes to Breitbart’s death, but it is telling. While co-workers and friends offered up remembrances of the man and relayed personal stories, there was a bizarre race to prove who knew Andrew best. There is an online movement for people to change their Twitter avatars to pictures of Breitbart. It appeared to begin with The Daily Caller‘s Jim Treacher, whose avatar is Breitbart on that yellow-hued piece of toast. (Can we just say how weird it is to scroll through Twitter and see dozens of Breitbart faces in various poses and frames staring back at us?)

There’s even a hash tag called #armyofandrews trying to convince the masses to change up their picture. Pundits were racing to see who could get the best picture of them with Breitbart as their avatar. Big Journalism Editor and CNN Contributor Dana Loesch quickly (and rightfully, he was, after all, her boss) changed her avatar to a picture of her and Breitbart. Actor Adam Baldwin, a contributor to Big Hollywood and a conservative pundit, also changed his avatar to an image of him and Breitbart. Over the weekend, he tweeted this out as a message from beyond.

Other online conservatives followed suit. Like @KamaainaInOC, who posted this picture of her and Breitbart… Read more

“@BravoAndy I loved to hear your favorite Whitney Houston song is I Love the LORD!!

In a series of emotional tweets over the weekend, Ryan expressed her sadness. A sampling: 1) My heart really wants to cry! 2) Girl this will never make sense. 3) My heart breaks for her mother especially as she loved her so much with motherly and tough love to help her family. 4) I actually wiped tears away when I heard her sing I Love The Lord Live.

Chuck was kind to remember me telling it during our Hotline days together… I think back in 5761 or so.”

Um…WHO CARES? We can read TV Guide. Politico CLICK writes on actor Kelsey Grammer‘s new show, “Boss,” in which he plays a Chicago mayor with a brain disorder. He’s a Republican in real life. And that’s about all you need to know. Go ahead and torture yourself here.

A question probably best left unanswered… “Has anybody called you a racist yet today? If not, consider it done.” — The Daily Caller‘s Jim Treacher.

Brag Book: Politico‘s Alex Trowbridge is having a hell of a good week. First, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, during his Tuesday night speech, ordered everyone to go to Politico.com to watch Trowbridge’s video montage in which Christie repeatedly declares that he’s not running for prez. Then on Wednesday night, Jon Stewart discussed his video and ran Christie’s shout-out and a portion of the montage on The Daily Show. “It’s like a treasure hunt, I love it!” Stewart cracked with fake enthusiasm. “It’s like a live linking to another website. We’ll follow the clues and reveal the secret message!”

“Any rational human being would be confused listening to these guys talk. So from my point of view, it’s almost a recipe for bad reporting.
