Liberal media aid in Obama’s ‘shiny objects’ strategy

So what is the liberal media covering this week? Gay marriage. In fact, not only are they covering it, they created the story. Obama’s flip-flop on the issue was forced after NBC News popped the question to Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday. On Monday, NBC News followed up by trapping Education Secretary Arne Duncan with the same question. By Tuesday, the White House press corps would not let Obama spokesman Jay Carney talk about anything but gay marriage. And on Wednesday, it was the only subject being covered by the elite media.

On Thursday, the Washington Post chimed in with a 5,000-word hit piece accusing Romney of being a bully in high school. Except that story didn’t even make their print edition because it was pre-empted by … gay marriage, of course!

Do Americans care about any of this? Not according to the Pew Research Center. They presented Americans with a list of 18 issues and asked them to identify which ones were important to their vote. The top three? The economy, jobs and the budget deficit. The least important issue of the 18? Gay marriage.
