American Idolatry: CNN Anchor Reveals Fact He's Written a Letter to Obama Every Single Day For the Past Four Years

From Ed Driscoll (with further thoughts, this story now appearing at Commentary.

Over the weekend, CNN anchor and reporter Tom Foreman wrote a piece for CNNís website explaining the genesis of a tradition he has kept for the last four years. He was absolutely correct that his behavior required an explanation, but the one he provided was far from adequate. Foreman has been writing President Obama a letter every single day of Obamaís first term. Some letters offered Obama advice, while others explained to Obama why Foreman rarely buys a lottery ticket. Some talked about his family, others about sports. He wondered whether Obama had read any of the 1,460 letters, and he asked the president to call if he got the chance. Some demonstrated Foremanís lack of self-awareness more clearly than others...

This is a read the whole thing article. I can't quote the whole thing. But here's some more:


It also presents CNN with a bit of a challenge. Theyíre not hiding Foremanís letters, after allĖtheyíre promoting them. And CNN reporter Jim Acosta was observed on-air expressing his giddiness over being close to Obama at the inauguration. Of the three major cable news stations Fox has always been on the right, CNN the left, and MSNBC far out on the fringe. But CNN has sought to move MSNBC into the mainstream left and position itself in the center. It is unlikely that a single person in the country believes this. And it makes CNN look a bit ridiculous, like theyíre the only ones not in on the joke.

Liberal journalism professor Jay Rosen has for quite some time advised media companies to just embrace their biases and stop pretending.

I'll add some thoughts in a following post.

105 BREAKING: CNN to hire Glenn Close as new mid-day anchor. Co-host will be "Bunny," the rabbit.


Posted by: angler at January 22, 2013 06:59 PM (SwjAj)



Seriously. My first thought was Glenn Close called and wants her perm back.

106 I've tried a couple of times to ask Obamabots (the adoring kind) what it is that attracts them so much, but the question itself makes them furious.
That defensiveness is odd. I don't get that reaction when I ask a 12 yr old girl why Justin Beiber is dreamy.

107 "...And even though the official ceremony is on Sunday, I plan to write to you through the big public ceremony on Monday, so the final count will be 1,462 letters. And then I intend to stop.

Yes, sad, but true. We've been at this quite a while, havenít we? Me writing letters to you each day, offering my heartfelt advice and wise counselÖor whatever I think might pass for thatÖand you steadfastly ignoring it. What a kidder you are! At least I think you are ignoring it. Perhaps you start every day with a shout down the hall, 'Biden! Bring me the latest letter from Tom!' But I doubt it."

No, mailing a letter everyday like the CNN guy does costs a stamp.

If every lib did it they would buy a lot of stamps.

Even if every Lib did it, they could not save the USPS.

CNN is full of Libs who mail letters to their BFF President.

Dear Leader Barack is busy healing all the hurt in the nation and guiding us on to our destiny. Though He gives all that is humanly possible, and even more it seems to me at times, our Dear Leader simply has not enough time to personally answer every letter. Dear Leader has noticed your dedication and sincerity and has asked me to reply to you with the message that "We are the hope of the world". He asks that you continue to write, and to accept His assurances that all will be well, so long as you continue to believe in Him.
Collectively yours,
Chris Matthews

138 Holy gawd I thought Miss 80's Baby's link was parody.

It does go on and it is Tom CNN Reporter--

Truth be told, whether you've enjoyed it or not I have. As they say in Maine, ďtook to it like a duck to water.Ē Well, Iím not sure they say that in Maine, but seems as good a place as any to hear such a thing. In any event, within just a couple of months of starting this quest back on that cold January of 2009, I came to look forward to it each day. I liked setting aside a few minutes to set down my thoughts and send them your way. [...] but still I think I will miss it in some ways.
The question is, will you?

I have wondered many times if you have ever seen these letters or if you even know that they exist. (Word of advice: If you havenít been following along I would not try to catch up now. Way too much reading.) Iíve also wondered if someone wrote to me this often would I bother to read every letter? Probably not. In fact, if I were you I likely would have sent the Secret Service to tell me to knock it off. Ha!
Look at this: Here the clock is fast running out and Iíve wasted my last Friday letter talking about how Iím down to my last few letters! Ah well. I have too much work yet to do to be ready for your inauguration, so I guess I better wrap it up.
More tomorrow (at least for now) and I hope your weekend goes well.
Regards,
Tom

Ripped jeans, skin was showin'

I'll run to tenderly hold you
But, Darlin' you won't be there

What is a SSAgent? If it's a girl, I don't want to write back, that would be icky. Besides, I only have so much time every day to write you. My letters might get shorter. I still think you like them, even though you never write back (yes, I notice these things).

That's part of their tactics. Throwing so much flack out there that no one could address it all - a good debater knows this trick and can cut it off at the pass. Cheney was especially good at this, he would point out what they were doing and then address the most important points. I'm sure Reagan was as good, but my memory doesn't go back that far....

Is Barack Obama a "nation-killer" who destroys jobs?
No, he created over 4.5 million jobs in his last term. more than Bush did with 2 terms
Is Barack Obama a communist?
No, he's a capitalist. He certainly has some policies that lean towards democratic socialism (completely different from economic socialism, mind you) but most of the policies the Neo-Cons complain about are actually extensions of those GWBush put in place. There is literally nothing about Obama (or Bush) that could be misconstrued as communism by anyone with more than 2 brain cells
Does Barack Obama hate America?
No, as he's shown in many ways
Is Barack Obama a Marxist?
No, he believes in privatized business, which is why he's spent government money to insure private businesses don't fail, without trying to make them partly government-owned. Just as GWBush did before him with his massive bailouts
Is Barack Obama a terrorist?
HELL NO!
Is Barack Obama destroying America?
No. He's not doing a great job as president, but he's certainly not destroying America. Our GDP, for instance, is higher than ever.
Is Barack Obama a "ursuper"?
No. He was voted into office legally, after George W Bush peaceably left office after his term was finished. Nothing about that fits the definition of usurping
Is Barack Obama an illegal?
No. He was born in Hawaii, as his birth certificates (both short- and long-form) have stated
As expected the hateful scumbags who HATE Obama ARE the biggest racists in American History. I didnít watch the Inauguration yesterday, but I slept till 3pm. All the others who are ďgladĒ that they didnít watch it are, racists and bigots. Thatís what people who hate Obama areÖracists and bigots. Whatís even more disgusting is that YOU have the galls to call yourselves ďPatriotsĒ when you are nothing of the sort. What you ACTUALLY are racists! What you ACTUALLY are bigots, What you ACTUALLY are black haters. What you ACTUALLY are hypocrites

AAND whatís even more disgusting is that you racists get pissed when Most of America are happy over the First Black President. you cancervatives created prompting a President as of God, you racists think itís blasphemous to compare ANYONE to your Right-wing God, Ronald Reagan. That shows how pathetic you racists are!

Obama lies less, not more than most politicians. He does present things in a light hopefully (for him) to gain the greatest amount of votes. Thatís the game all politicians play.

When a Democrat like Obama goes on the offensive. The conservative racists and idiots out there call it ďcampaigning.Ē Campaigning without trolling for votes? Maybe you should seek help!

Those who say he is a communist, Marxist or even socialist do not even know what those things are. Is he a Muslim? No, thatís just those who do not want a democrat, or even a black, to be president. Does he hate America or is trying to destroy America, or is an Anti-American? No! again that is the lies the right is saying. Didnít you listen to his inauguration speech? wait, you didnít people youíre a racist! We, the people. Doesnít sound anti-American or hateful to me. Is he a fraud or a Ďman-childí? no thatís the right that is.

Should He be impeached???? He has done nothing to even merit that. All the things which the right claims are things which they were okay with when a republican president did the same things. They are only upset with Obama because he is a democrat. They hated Clinton also. They would hate Reagan to if they really looked at what he did during his administration, instead of picking some items and neglecting the rest.

Obama is a politician. He is told what to do, what to say and where to go. Get with the times, you pathetic racist! Just because A President doesnít follow your brain-dead racist right-wing idelogoy does NOT mean he hates America, It means you are just a pathetic brain-dead racist!

He is NOT a criminal, nor a Narcissist, has he committed voter fraud! Obama won fair and square! Why canít you racists accept that?

Obís such a ďSCOAMFĒ he grad Harvard Law and passed his bars and practiced law and beat the ďwar hero,Ē John McCain Simple Sarah. Got Bin Laden. The white supremacists of the GOP Base reek of envy and desperation.

Is Barack Obama a monster? he is human Is Barack Obama destroying America? no, or is unemployment going down and stock market up destroying america??

Lighten up. You are out of your league. You racists are pathetic!

Calling the POTUS a POS and a fraud seems to the usual calling call for you right-wing racists and bigots like you!
Obama is not a narcissist. Look up the definition of narcissist.

Obama is not a criminal. Don't believe me? List the laws he has broken.

Is he a disgrace to America? Let's see. He prevented the US economy from utterly imploding, plunging the US into a 2nd great depression. He saved the US auto industry, and millions of US jobs that rely on it. He's overseen 40 months of positive job growth. His administration has repaired many of the bad relations that the previous administration created which has started to return the world's view of the US to that of respect, instead of ridicule. Do you consider that disgraceful? If so, may I suggest you buy a new dictionary - one that wasn't written by ultra-conservative puppets at FOX News.
Such a mob of misfits. Of course they're racist. These fools claim their WHITE house and Obama is BLACK. They were against him before he was even sworn in and it is obvious one factor of the right wing uncontained hate of this man is his skin color.
Obviously the majority of right wing extremists are uneducated red neck hot heads. Just reading the slop they post confirms that They can't stand the idea of a black man running our country.
