European Rock Stars
Just about everyone knows that obama did a big overseas trip.
Just about everyone knows that he gave a speech in Berlin, with crowd estimates around 200,000.
How many knew that two of Germany's most popular rock bands gave a FREE CONCERT prior to that speech?
For that matter, how many knew that he pulled the same cheap stunt prior to the Portland speech that supposedly drew over 75,000?
How many heard even a PEEP about EITHER of those insignificant little facts in the major media?
Look, ya do what ya gotta do to draw the crowds - it's politics, and it's a dirty game - but how about just the SLIGHTEST bit of journalistic integrity from the media vultures that are busy adding fresh layers of lipstick to obama's butt on a daily basis?
The Founders laid out their vision of a free press acting as a watchdog over government and its excesses:
Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
"Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?"
Looks like it's up to us to report the facts on rock stars - PARTICULARLY the fake political ones created by the media.
Apparently, there were THREE European acts in Berlin that day.....
