Santorum accuses media of double standard on Obama and Jeremiah Wright

How soon the media forgets.  Obama’s Pastor Jeremiah Wright made incendiary statements about America and Racism but the media passed it off as not news worthy and that Obama was not responsible for the statements of His Pastor.  But Rick Santorum must be accountable for the ‘Aspirin between ones knees’ Remark.  Seems the media has a Double standard for the right.  Anyone who went to a Teaparty was subject to full accountability for every sign displayed at those rallies.  Conversely MSNBC preached that Occupy Wall Street was not responsible for a few outliers.

One wonders if they are so blind that they can’t see their own bias or that they just don’t care about real journalism.

Rick Santorum accused the media of a “double standard” Friday for defending President Obama for the comments of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his former pastor.

Santorum was reacting to criticism of comments Thursday by Forster Friess, who made ill-advised remarks about birth control. He said he shouldn’t be held accountable for every comment by one of his supporters, and said the media were playing “gotcha politics.”

“Look, this is what you guys do,” Santorum said on CBS. “I mean, you don’t do this with President Obama; in fact with President Obama what you did was you went out and defended him against someone who he sat in a church for, for 20 years and defended him that, ‘Oh, he can’t possibly believe what he listened to for 20 years.’

“That was the double standard — this is what you’re pulling off and I’m going to call you on it,” Santorum said.

Obama’s 2008 campaign was nearly derailed by the controversy surrounding Wright, who in incendiary sermons said the Sept. 11 attacks were the result of U.S. policies and said it should be “not God bless America. God d–n America.”

In response to the controversy, Obama gave a highly acclaimed speech on race in America in which he denounced Wright’s comments, and he later resigned from Wright’s church.
