A Real Journalist

For the past four years, the main stream media has fawned over Barack Obama and his policies, much to the detriment of the people of the United States. The media has a responsibility to be adversarial, to uncover the truth, to expose hypocrisy and corruption, to keep politicians honest, to challenge even annointed politicians like their beloved Barack Obama. They haven't done that -- not even close.

In a rare and refreshing departure from the fawning, protective tone that occurs in most Obama administration-media encounters, an AP reporter does his job while questioning a state department spokesperson. The fireworks are worth the 2:30 minute video. It's too bad more "journalists" don't learn from his example when they question other branches of the Obama administration.
