Here is yet another example of the how the Austin American Statesman is portraying the effects of the Sequester. Spending cuts hit nutrition programs for seniors.
First of all there are no “cuts.” The Sequester is only about “reductions” in a projected rise in spending on top of spending. Secondly, the Statesman is assuming the role of the political-media lapdog for Obama and the DNC. Also, where is the investigative reporting that can demonstrate the hypocrisy of “puppeteer planning” by the Obama Administration over these so-called “cuts”–by this I mean, Obama can starting sending down-payments to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt of $1 BILLION, but he has to “cut” the funding for Meals on Wheels and let our poor, elderly veterans “starve”?
Is the media manipulation by the Statesman working?
Well yes, very well, thank you. If you read the feed-back comments posted online by the readers of the article, 80% of them are blaming the Republicans for what Obama is doing.
