Suddenly, CNN Concerned About Presidential Memory Hole

Nahh, just among GOP candidates, as Ron Futrell writes at Big Journalism. “Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday hammered Mitt Romney on why he won’t release his financial records. Seriously, Wolf?”

I’ll get to Romney’s financials in a moment, but the same Blitzer, who won’t pressure the current Commander in Chief to release his academic records is attacking Romney on his financials? Yep—Dear Leader must be protected at all costs, while Republican candidates will get the full on anal exam from the activist old media. That will be the template for 2012. Some may say, “get used to it.” Sorry, as a journalist, I find it hard to get used to clear media bias.

Here’s what Wolf had to say: “Transparency; you say you’re not going to release your income tax records … why would you [not] do that?”

Romney answered by saying that at this point in the campaign it’s not a requirement, and he will “follow the law” and release the records when required if he becomes the nominee.

But the badgering over “transparency” continued by Blitzer, “What do you have to hide?”

What do you have to hide? Really Wolf? Have you paid any attention to how the media is absolutely terrified to hold Dear Leader to account on his academics? Grades, transcripts, writings, on and on. Nothing has been released and Barack Obama (Mr. Transparency Himself) has no problem with ignoring any placid requests by the activist old media.

This same activist old media has created the template that Obama is the smartest person ever in the White House, and probably the smartest person who has ever led a nation, but they could care less about backing that up with actual evidence. It’s out there, somewhere. Perhaps, just perhaps they’re afraid of what they might find out. Who knows? Every president in the modern history of this country has released full academic records. One has decided not to, and the activists who call themselves journalists have no interest in pushing the matter any further. Since they have ignored it, we should too and just take their word for it that he is the smartest person in the history of people.

The Blitz on Romney continued, “If you wanna be president you’ve gotta expect everything to be open … very little remains secret.”

Unless the media chooses to bury it:

And speaking of CNN and getting buried
