Mitt Romney At The NAACP And Media Malpractice

So Mitt Romney went to talk to the NAACP today. I didn't see the whole speech but it seemed like reasonably good stuff. He focused on family, jobs and education. I didn't see but there were reports he received a good bit of applause when he promised to defend traditional marriage.

Of course the media will not be focusing on that or the applause for charter schools, his invocations of faith or anything else. No, they will focus exclusively on his being booed for saying he'd repeal ObamaCare and that he will do better for blacks than Obama has.

While that sort of hackery is to be expected, a couple of outlets are going well over the line.

First, ABC News is all in on Obama (warning auto playing video).

After focusing on the booing, ABC drops in this little nugget.

Romney, a white Mormon whose father ran for president when blacks weren't even allowed to join the priesthood, told Obama's most reliable supporters that they have been let down by the country's first black president.

Well then.

If fathers and religion are on the table, I look forward to discussing the polygamy of Barack Obama Sr. and the racism of Jeremiah Wright. Oh wait, we can't do that.

The added bonus to the auto-play video on the ABC site? Each time Ive opened it up, it starts with an Obama ad hitting Romney.

Next is Donna Brazil. She says Romney shouldn't be surprised he was booed, after all "ObamaCare" is a derogatory term (video below the fold).

This of course will come as a surprise to Obama's campaign team.

Aside from Romney applause lines, what will the media ignore? Obama doesn't have the guts to go to a hostile crowd like this and give a speech. In fact, Obama won't even be addressing the NAACP convention. You'd think sending Job Biden in his place would be enough to turn them against him but it's probably not.

Opposition to ObamaCare is "intolerant"?

Liberals are simply going crazy at the prospect of losing. Let's help them get all the way there.
