"I can't talk about anything except the Drudge video today." - nobody—
Jake Beckman (@jakebeckman) October 03, 2012
Perhaps you haven’t heard since “nobody” finds it newsworthy, but Tuesday night The Daily Caller, Fox News and the Drudge Report broke a story about candidate Obama’s racially divisive, lie-peppered speech in front of a predominantly black Virginia audience.
“Old news.” Nothing to see here. Move along. That’s why, as Bloomberg TV editor Jake Beckman points out, “nobody” is talking about it today.
Meet Beckman’s fellow media “nobodies”:
Obama 2007 video pumped by Hannity getting little play this morning. Either because it's old or there's a vast left-wing media conspiracy—

Are any of the morning shows mentioning Tucker's scoop?—

How many airballs does Drudge need to shoot before people start doubting him? Amazed that Ashley Todd hoax didn't hurt his rep—

So remember that Drudge/Hannity/Daily Caller bombshell? Me either.—

That’s a whole lot of nobodies burying a giant bone like good little media lapdogs. Evidently it’s worth talking about … but only if it’s part of a Journolist-style effort to downplay the story and mock those who find it newsworthy. Hush now. The gatekeepers know what’s good for you.
Shorter media: Old Obama videos not important, but Mitt cutting someone's hair in high school should make the debates.—

I see our progressive friends are still windmilling it over that not-news video.—

Fox News still leading with Obama vid and Drudge still pushing as priority. Corrupt media can only whine as we disseminate.—

When the lapdog pack hides a bone, it’s worth digging. John Nolte’s “Top Ten Reasons the 2007 Obama Video Matters in 2012″ is a great place to start:
Too bad “nobody” thinks it’s worth reading.

Heh. Don’t count on that.
