THEY DON’T CALL IT THE STATE-CONTROLLED MEDIA FOR NOTHING: Katrina Trinko: The Insane MSM Questions Romney Faced at Presser.

These days, they’re all sucking up in the hopes of being hired by Democratic pols. Meanwhile, what would they be saying if President Bush had gone to Vegas for a fundraiser on a day like this? Heck, what would they be saying if Romney were doing so?

UPDATE: Reader Leslie Eastman writes: “The fact the elite media was more upset about Romney’s critique of the White House than our dead ambassador says all there needs to be said about our press.”

Now is a good time to go all Breitbart on them.

These people — always so quick to play the “have you no decency?” card — have no decency of their own. None.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Appropriately enough, it’s H.L. Mencken’s birthday. “Last night, I told someone that I really don’t blame Obama for being Obama, nor for his administration for being what it is: a political entity unable to quickly produce coherent statements on breaking stories. If there are no core beliefs to draw on quickly, you need time to politically calculate and strategize. But I do blame the press for letting him be Obama, and his administration to be calculating, without anything like accountability, investigation or discomfiture. Our idolizing press has stopped serving the country in order to serve the state. But only while there is a D in the Whitehouse. It will take putting an R back in there to get them to do their damn jobs.”
