Liberal Media Turns on Obama – IOTW Report

Liberal Media Turns on Obama


WFB: President Obama delivered a longwinded lecture to the press on Friday about its “unfair” treatment of Hillary Clinton during the campaign, drawing ire from mainstream journalists.


The president, who was delivering his final 2016 news conference, implied the media’s “obsession” with Clinton’s leaked emails did more damage to the former secretary of state than the Russian cyber attacks against Democratic political networks.


“This was an obsession that dominated the news coverage,” Obama said. “So I do think it is worth us reflecting how it is that a presidential election of such importance, of such moment, with so many big issues at stake and such a contrast between the candidates came to be dominated by a bunch of these leaks.”

Obama also spent much of the press conference defending his foreign policy legacy. He spoke at length about the decaying situation in Syria, conceding that while he felt personally responsible for some of the bloodshed, he still believes he did all that he could.


Journalists from outlets including the Huffington Post, MSNBC, and CNN took to Twitter to sound off their frustration with the president’s last speech of the year.  MORE

  1. I don’t know how long they’ll stay disappointed and snippy with him, but there’s only a month left of him and all of this made me giggle like a 2 year old with a new puppy.

  2. My favorite words from the article:

    “his final 2016 news conference”

    I’m going to miss him like a bleeding hemorrhoid…

  3. “… with so many big issues at stake and such a contrast between the candidates came to be dominated by a bunch of these leaks.”

    “… with so many big issues at stake and such a contrast between the candidates came to be dominated by a bunch of these FACTS.”

    Fixed it for ya, Obola!

    izlamo delenda est …

  4. “At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.”
    P.J. O’Rourke

  5. Stupid bastards!!! 8 years too late. They must feel like Obama Shat in their Christmas stockings. Had they not sold their souls to keep the the dead bodies of liberalism afloat, despite the putrefaction, I might feel pity equal to the weight of a mosquito.

  6. He feels his legacy slipping away. He knows that the press will be turning on him now that the flaws of his foreign policies are destabilizing the civilized world. Obamacare, his signature domestic achievement, is coming apart. And Clinton won’t be there to prolong the agony. The Democrat Party has become nearly irrelevant after eight years of Obama’s leadership. The Deplorables and the Bitter Clingers have outllasted the Fundamental Transformers. God speed, Donald Trump.

  7. I watched that steaming pile and those reporters threw soft balls and let him talk his shit and didn’t say squat. Yeah but after the chance to confront him with yaknow, some realism, then they man up on Twitter! Give me a break.

    I hope Trump makes every last one of these assbags persona non grata and gets a couple dozen Joel Pollacks in there.

  8. I bet Obama is stunned that his media minions aren’t still groveling to him. I hope he lashes out at them. It would be fun to see how low and petty they could all be to each other instead of us for a change.

  9. Yes! He said “leaks” when the real turn of phrase should have been, “damning revelations in their own words”!!!

    Have any of these idiots on the LEFT bothered to actually READ any of these e-mails? What’s doubly-disturbing is they read them and remained of the mindset and attitude of, “So what?”.

  10. Eight years of pandering, worshipping, idolizing, lying, and covering for the BS artiste and suddenly MSM has an epiphany? Ummmmm, no.

    I think the lightening bolt moment came when one of their own suddenly fainted, and Obama was nearly vibrating with anger the reporter had the AUDACITY to have a heart attack and interrupt his prepared speech to a prepared question.

    Or maybe it was leaked they’ll be no invitations to cocktail parties at Kalorama after 01/20/17?

  11. They are so passive-aggressive now – what gives? They rip into anything a republican says on the spot like that Turd named Katie to completely distort this “Russian hacking” that didn’t happen.

    And this weirdo spawn of the Pelosi dynasty appears 3X on Fox to DEMAND answers to what? Assange says he didn’t get anything from Putin, he got it from an INSIDER, you sniveling ignorant byotch!

    We WON! Stop it, already. I’m putting my hands over my ears and singing, “nahna nah nah, hey, hey, hey, good byeye, good bye…”

    Thanks, that helped with erasing those puppet things BFH.

  12. WHEN you are a psychotic, pathological egoist, self-delusionist, and liar like Hussein is, watching your “empire” crumble around you in the dust as your no-clothes emperor image shows your stupidity and nakedness to the world, you just gotta wimp out and cry mommieeeee! The Russians did it, the Hilldabeast did it, racyssts did it, Bush’s fault, media’s fault, Trump’s fault wahh wahh waaaaaaaaa! Go take your last vacation on us WimpWeasel! You were born a SHITPICKLE and you will end as one.
    Recall AF One, and all planes for Prezzy from Hawaii when he departs the landing field and leave the Obamas there for good.

  13. Said the scorpion who stung the frog, as he swam across the river carrying it, “It is my nature” and they both died.

  14. An empty head, atop an empty suit, with an empty chair (Thanks, Clint!) ….. this is the wizard of OZ when the curtain is pulled back — nothing but an amplified voice (brought to you by the MSM), and belonging to a very little man.

  15. Obama’s legacy will hang around his neck like a dead albatross. His legacy is exactly what he earned-LESS THAN ZERO.

    As the MSM whores find that their pimps have deserted them, the real corruption will rise to the top. All of the crap Obama has dictatorially suppressed will float to the top like pond scum.

  16. The press is nothing more than a low-talent group of enablers. He’s the way he is partially because they encouraged him to be that way.

  17. @Cato:

    “…he is exactly who we thought he was.” (emphasis mine)

    And a lot of us knew who he was right from the start.

  18. ” I MET a Traveler from an antique land,
    Who said, “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desart. Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read,
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
    And on the pedestal these words appear:
    “My name is OZYMANDIAS, King of Kings.”
    Look on my works ye Mighty, and despair!
    No thing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that Colossal Wreck, boundless and bare,
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

    for Barack “Ozymandius” Obama

  19. They make these comments on twitter or somewhere else that the vast majority of the public never read. Are any of them going to actually write a story about how Obama treated the American people, his arrogance, refusal to accept responsibility for his many screw-ups, spent most of the time trying to blame other people (with the active help of these same journalists) and was generally the most intellectually lazy Presidents ever? Pretty damned unlikely.

  20. The Media would look less pathetic in their newfound integrity if they weren’t wearing Obola’s indelible assprint on their faces from 8 yrs of such close contact.

  21. More FAKE desperate news. If they are still trashing him in ten years I’ll buy it. They should be off licking their wounds, but maybe this way they’ll become infected and fatal.

  22. Barky:

    …a presidential election of such importance…came to be dominated by a bunch of these leaks.

    The election was not dominated by the leaks, it was dominated by the disclosure of the unethical actions and outright criminality of Clinton, her campaign, and the DNC.

  23. If anyone thinks this is Barry’s last presser the jokes on you. The inevitablee Trumpv inaguaration is burning his narcissist ass. He’ll find some stupid reason to have another despot rant, just to get the attention he craves and the lapdog leftist media will dutifully oblige.
