So he didn't inject his personal opinion in to news pieces. Good for him.

First of all this is old news and second of all, specualting that Obama is a Socialist is not misleading viewers. HE IS A SOCIALIST BY HIS OWN ADMISSION! He admitted he was a Progressive. Progressives are socialist/Communists. Always have been and always will be!

This is straight from Media Blathers, part of their "war" on Fox.

Ho-hum. *yawn*

I mean, how exactly did he 'mislead'?

Sammon said this: "I have read Barack Obama's books pretty carefully, and he in his own words talks about being drawn to Marxists... Now all this stuff's coming out about whether he's a socialist. I don't know why anyone is surprised by it, because if you read his own words and his sort of, you know, orientation coming up as a liberal through college and a young man, it's not a huge shock."

In other words, he was reporting what was widely speculated in the news at that time (and has been proven entirely truthful ever since, if you ask me) and kept his private opinions to himself. How many over at PMSNBC can say they did that? Huh?? In other words, the man acted as a reporter and not a commentator, a difference the PMSNBC either doesn't understand or willfully ignores.

Naturally, a left-wing outfit like MediaBlathers doesn't get that. They see newscasters' proper role as disseminators of propaganda. Of course they don't respect (or even understand) someone who keeps his opinions to himself when he reads the news.
