Heaven forbid that a normal citizen ask Barack Obama a question without having his entire life history thrown throughout the media like tabloid trash. Joe The Plumber did not seek out Barack Obama to ask him a question. He was simply playing football in his front yard with his son.
Barack Obama, along with his media pals, came to Joe's neighborhood to do some door-to-door campaigning. The man asked Obama a simple question. It was Barack Obama who showed his true colors by stating that he wanted to "spread the wealth".
Now in the blink of an eye, poor Joe has been trashed up and down. He can no longer continue working as a plumber in Ohio. The media has taken away his ability to support his son. This guy is an average Joe. It could have been any of us that asked him a question that day. Imagine how you would feel if the media had gone through your personal life.
Since the media continues to fail it's one duty....to be objective, they have in essence become part of the campaign itself. So why shouldn't they get their turn at being vetted. I am not sure that two wrongs make a right, but I have to tell you.......I will be happy to read the dirt.
There is now a new website that intends to vet that same media that has taken it upon themselves to vet Joe the Plumber. The new website is http://mediavetting.com. The site was only started on Friday so it is still in the infancy stage. They have already received hundreds of volunteer requests and are currently taking any tips regarding media personalities.
If the media has the right to vet or not vet a candidate, do we have the right to vet or not vet the media?
