Media Steals Obama Thunder

Thirty minutes of news reporting after a news alert flashed on America’s TV screens stating that President Obama was to make an announcement to the American People.  (A touch of War of the Worlds and Orson Welles!)  While Obama was writing his spin on the Osama death, NBC and the other networks were busy stealing his thunder…  Forty minutes after the world-shaking news flash to come from the President of the United States, the media had already exhausted the subject matter with details.  So what’s new?  A campaign speech claiming credit for the demise of Osama Bin Laden?

If anything, thank our people in uniform and our generals for waging war in Afghanistan.
