Manufacturing Gaffes

Since two gaffes do not make a “gaffe-filled” trip, the media needed a third gaffe. After screaming at Romney during a Warsaw memorial service about the two gaffes they had manufactured for him, a Polish-American Romney aide told them to “Shove it.” Thus a third “gaffe” was born, even if it didn’t actually involve Romney saying anything. To the media the greatest gaffe is when people don’t want to talk to them.

The only thing remarkable about this sad pathetic narrative is how little content there is. The media’s gaffe stories are about the media, not about Romney. This isn’t “digging up dirt” any more, it’s “mean girls” namecalling dressed up as reporting aimed at readers who won’t bother to read up about the details of Romney’s trip, but will accept it as a failure because that is what the media is reporting. It’s the journalistic equivalent of the media calling Romney a slut enough times in the hope that the name will stick.

Meanwhile in a completely unimportant story buried on Page 24, we now know that Obama has signed an intelligence finding authorizing aid to the Syrian rebels. This was one of the steps to war in Libya. And the rebels now have surface-to-air missiles of unknown origin, though likely supplied by either Turkey, Qatar or Saudi Arabia, all of whom are radical Islamist states and who buy their weapons from the United States. But there’s no reason to pay attention to our slow march to war in Syria. Not when Romney’s aide told a reporter to, “Shove it.”

One Response to “Manufacturing Gaffes”

  1. Colleen Loughmiller says:

    The story of the false story of Romney gaffs. Repeat a line/lie long enough and the media will believe itself and cover its story of believing its creative lies under the guise of journalism. Great blog.
