Media Bias Infects the Fashion Police, Too! (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS September 30, 2012

Yahoo! headlined this story on their front page today:

Ann Romney commits odd fashion faux pas

The would-be first lady wears a questionable wardrobe choice on a late-night show.

When you click that link, you get a page entitled “OMG!” and then, under the title, “What Were They Thinking?!”, is this:

Ann Romney, whose hubby, Mitt, is running to become the next president of the United States, left her campaign-trail cardigan at home while making an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Wednesday. Instead, Romney sported an odd black tiered leather skirt (although it looked a little more like pleather) and matching jacket, along with a pair of lacy heels. Perhaps her next stop was a biker bar?

That’s the outfit at the top of the post.  The one that Yahoo! characterizes as an “odd fashion faux pas” and inappropriate, in their opinion, for this lady to wear on LATE-NIGHT TV.  What’s odd about her outfit?  She looks great. If she can carry it off and, imho, she can, more power to her.  Notice the “biker bar” slam?  Imagine anything remotely like that being said about Michelle Obama.  Or the backhanded snark about her cardigans.

Now let’s compare and contrast that story to a relatively recent one written after Michelle Obama appeared on Nickelodeon, a television channel for children.  On a page entitled “Glitterazzi, Where Pop Meets Power”, and under the heading “First Lady Michelle Obama Rocks Youthful Sparkles At Kids’ Choice Awards”, came this:

Holy FLOTUS mamacita!

Michelle Obama might’ve been presenting an award at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards, but she definitely takes home the award for most stunningly stylish.

If you thought the First Lady couldn’t pull off skinny jeans, then you are absolutely wrong. Michelle flaunted her flawless legs in a pair of Helmut Lang foil wash jeans, and completed the look with a Wes Gordon metallic houndstooth jacket and pointy black stilettos.

Michelle attended the awards to present Taylor Swift with the “Big Help Award” for all of her amazing charitable efforts.

We really thought we loved seeing the FLOTUS in her trademark preppy dresses — but, now, we are totally into this FLOTUS rockstar looks!

Here’s the outfit:

So what’s the diff here?  Do you read any snarky comments about “biker bars”?  Michelle seems to be channeling rock stars, so do you see any suggestions that her next stop might be a Cher concert? Or is that outfit more appropriate for a disco?  You be the judge.

There’s no mention in the first story about Ann’s “flawless legs” or her many “amazing charitable efforts,” which include giving $4 million to charity last year!

Are they making an ageist statement here?  Is it a faux pas for Ann to wear that youthful outfit on late-night TV, but okay for Michelle to wear an inappropriate, “questionable,” somewhat trashy and ill-fitting outfit on children’s TV, because Michelle is younger?

I don’t think they want to go there.  Is this a WAR ON SIXTY-SOMETHINGS?  If it’s good enough for Tina Turner, who’s seventy-something,  it’s appropriate for Ann Romney.   They just don’t like it when Republicans “appropriate” their techniques for connecting with people.  Do they have something against bikers, btw?

We’ve noticed since the beginning of the Obamanation, that the media falls all over itself to declare Michelle a fashion icon.

When Michelle wears shoes that cost hundreds of dollars, or dresses that cost thousands, there is NO mention of her wealth or the inappropriateness of wearing expensive clothing while others suffer during this recession/depression. However, whenever Ann wears expensive outfits, the media never fail to point out the cost or their perception of inappropriateness.

This is nothing new. Remember how they excoriated Sarah Palin for buying a wardrobe to campaign in, as if Hillary Clinton didn’t do the same?

Republican women=fashion faux pas.

Democrat women=fashion plates.

The mendacity of the media knows no bounds.

  1. Oh, there’s supposed to be some video that’s 6 years old that Hannity wants to show tonight but there’s a controversy at the network whether it’s fair to run it the night before the debate. I wonder who was threatened with losing their license THIS TIME? Will he run it? It can’t be the Khalidi tape. That was from 2003. Stay tuned.

  2. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/02/florida-court-hears-case-illegal-immigrant-applying-for-law-license/?test=latestnews

    Speaking of licenses. You’d think I was making this up, but nope! An illegal alien is suing for the “right” to get a law license in FLORIDA. HE’S AN ILLEGAL ALIEN WHO WANTS TO PRACTICE LAW!

    “The Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday on whether an illegal immigrant can be granted a law license, with most of the justices appearing skeptical about such a decision.

    The case was brought before the court by the state’s Board of Bar Examiners, which has asked the court for an opinion on whether to grant a license to Jose Godinez-Samperio.

    Godinez-Samperio came from Mexico to the United States as a child with his parents, who had a tourist visa that has long since expired.

    He’s arguing that he should be granted a law license under President Obama’s directive this summer that suspends deportation for young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. under similar circumstances.”

    Oh, yeah. And it saddens me to say that it’s being reported that Romney says he won’t take away the work permits Barry is giving to the illegal aliens like this guy. ARGHHHH!!!!! I hope he’ll not take away the permits–just deport them.

  3. Yes it’s WAR… 2 cover ALL our lady PARTS…. HEAD 2 TOE? SOON?
    Comments…. on Examiner above are a MUST READ… funny…
    Miles said…I’m voting like my rectum depends on it!… U bet ya!
    I’m sure O approves that ad! … (& proud Mary) ….I mean MO’ also.
    The debates can’t start soon enough..

  4. Drudge has a headline about Obama’s “other race speech” where he gives a “shout out” to “Reverend” Wright. Will be on Hannity tonight.

  5. When Mrs. Romney is photographed in public tugging on her lady parts, then maybe we can talk.

    it just so happened that FLOTUS showed us how its done in holy places.

    • Zenway, you’re reading my mind. You know what I noticed about that video of Barry speaking to the black preachers versus the video of him making his race speech to the whole country, which is 71% white? With the preachers, nose down. With the rest of America, NOSE UP IN THE AIR. Deferential to his people (“our neighborhoods”) but snooty to mostly-white America.

  8. Stuff is just blasting out now. http://www.wnd.com/2012/10/trinity-church-members-reveal-obama-shocker/

    • This reminds me of the information from Hill Buzz, Kevin, and I think he and his friends are the Opposition that Corsi speaks about.

      Trinity Church members reveal Obama shocker!
      ‘Matchmaker’ Rev. Jeremiah Wright ‘provided cover for gays’

      Published: 1 hour ago

      Largely ignored in 2008 was research by the Hillary Clinton campaign based on contacts developed with members of the church Obama attended for two decades, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. This is the first of a series of articles WND has developed from months of in-person interviews with church members who have known Barack and Michelle Obama over many years. The sources requested that their identities not be published because they believe their disclosures would put their security at risk.

      NEW YORK – Ten years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community known as Down Low, comprised largely of men who secretly engage in homosexual activity while living “straight” lives in public.

      It’s within that subtext that opposition researchers for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign began investigating rumors that Rev. Jeremiah Wright was running a “matchmaking service” for members of his Trinity United Church of Christ known as the Down Low Club, which included Barack Obama.

      Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church who claim the president benefited from Wright’s efforts to help black men who engage in homosexual activity appear respectable in black society by finding them a wife.
      ~
      To Trinity insiders, the Down Low Club was simply known as “the program.”

      “That’s the terminology. At Trinity, you’re urged to ‘get with the program,’” explained a male beneficiary of the Down Low Club. “What that means is it’s OK to go ahead and have sex with men, just as long as you ‘get with the program’ and marry a woman, somebody no straight guy would want to marry.”

      The wife, the Down Low Club member explained, is “your ‘beard,’ your cover – so you can look like you’re living a straight life, even thought your not.”
      ~
      “That’s what Wright did for Obama,” she claimed. “He connected Obama in the community, and he helped Obama hide his homosexuality.”

      ~
      “At Trinity, if you even hint at talking about Obama being gay, you are reminded of our dear departed choir director,” she said. “He was killed, and it wasn’t a robbery. The Christmas presents weren’t touched. The TV was not taken, nothing in the apartment was missing.”

      Double Lives On The Down Low
      By Benoit Denizet-Lewis

    • It didn’t take much to figure out long ago that his was an arranged marriage. Jarrett introduced them. Jarrett is the linchpin in the black connections in Chicago. You could almost read between the lines in the news stories about that encounter, where it was as if Barry was being interviewed for a job. I couldn’t decide whether it was a Muslim-type arranged marriage or what. The Trinity program fits, too. Is Jarrett a member of TUCC?

      I still wonder about the role that Mooch’s bff and ob-gyn played in all this. Every male politician needs the wife and the two requisite children to complete the image. Marriages of convenience. There are MANY in DemoncRAT circles. I’m thinking Clintons (whether they began that way or not), the Weiners (what a coinkidink that Huma is Hill’s right-hand woman!), and others. Probably every in-the-closet gay male member of Congress of any party has a beard. Obviously, those who remained single … “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.” UNLESS THEY LIE.

      I really don’t care about other people’s orientation unless it has a bearing on ME. In this case, it does because this man may be involved in shady business and when he’s making decisions that affect our pocketbooks (giving spousal federal benefits to gay partners, changing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, e.g.) then We the People have a right to know where he’s coming from. (No pun intended. Seriously. A gross image, that.)

    ‘Matchmaker’ Rev. Jeremiah Wright ‘provided cover for gays’

  10. In heated ’07 speech, Obama lavishes praise on Wright

    • The entire Obama speech of 40 minutes is shown at Daily Caller. Apparently, in 2007 the reporters only talked about the prepared speech and not all of the times that Obama went off on his racial tangents. Most of the controversial words were never reported. It is those tangents that Hannity talked about and were shown tonight. Obama is seen whipping up race hatred designed to make people fearful…He was divisive and far from being a uniter. He was speaking in his “black” talk, with an unusual rhythm to his words. You would think there are “TWO” different Obamas. His phoniness is so apparent and the different speaking style..sort of a southern black accent. Obama is a pure raving racist.

      I’d like to compare those ears when Hannity shows the video from 2007 and another year showing Obama contradict himself. American doesn’t care about black people was Obama’s message! I hope Hannity’s entire show is on You Tube – if you missed it.

      This is the tape that the Left didn’t want shown tonight even though they weren’t sure what it was ..they (DNC) were sending tweets way ahead of publication dismissing Daily Caller, Tucker Carlson, and Hannity. Obama praises Jeremiah Wright in 2007 then after the “God Damn America” speech, Obama the conman says he doesn’t agree with his loving pastor and throws him under the bus.

      Tucker Carlson on Obama Race Speech – This is a dog siren – video

      “Let me just be totally clear for anyone who just watched it and who has seen Obama speak in public over the last ten years will note, this accent is absurd,” Carlson said.

      “This is not the way Obama talks — at least it’s not the way he’s talked in the dozens, the scores of speeches I’ve watched him give, or public appearances I’ve seen him make. This is a put-on. This is phony. That’s issue one. The second issue is he is telling a predominantly black audience something very clear: The federal government doesn’t like you because you are black.”

      http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/02/tucker-carlson-on-obama-speech-this-is-a-dog-siren-video/

      • One thing that I find intriguing is the audience seemed so not into him. At least in the clips shown around “town” prior to Hannity, which I did not watch. When and where did the fervor for Obama come by the time 2008 rolled around? I mean, this was not a rah-rah-the-messiah-is-here crowd, so what happened between this speech and the summer of 2008?
        Also, any ideas what the “jerk off” seizure was all about at around 3:18?
        http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/02/obama-speech-jeremiah-wright-new-orleans/ ?

        • What a Hoot! I noticed that, too. I had to ask my hubby what he thought of that, or if it was just me interpreting it that way. I wondered if he was signaling that the people he was talking about at the time are J.O.s (Christians, indirectly). Is it some kind of insider message, like when he scratches his face with his middle finger or makes those other hand signals? Of course he pandered and put in that part about Wright introducing him to Jesus Christ–he was speaking to an entire roomful of Christian preachers.

      • Obama says feds ‘don’t care’ about black New Orleans, oh really?

        So why then if Obama does care about black New Orleans why did he vote nay on the Coburn Amdt. No. 1089 To prioritize Federal spending to ensure the needs of Louisiana residents who lost their homes as a result of Hurricane Katrina and Rita are met before spending money to design or construct a nonessential visitors center.

      • Bridgette! I noticed those ears, too. They did look different. The hairline did, too, over on the left side. You see Tucker’s headlines and in the news/blog articles, they deliberately don’t report the comments that Tucker highlights. The most incendiary ones, which just PROVES HIS POINT ABOUT THE BIASED, COMPLICIT MEDIA. I agree that his accent is absurd. It’s so apparent that he simply uses people without shame at all. A demagogue. That’s so true. I would think that blacks would be offended, but they apparently are not. It was ridiculous when Al Gore and Hillary Clinton did it; it’s ridiculous when Hawaiian- and Indonesian-raised Barry Obama does it. Channeling MLK and Wright and Jesse Jackson. So ridiculous.

        • The use of his hands was totally different also. Juan was on FOX and thought his accent was just fine! Juan looked like a fool at that point with whatever case he used to say that it was perfectly okay for Obama to change his accent and speech pattern. He was apparently speaking to black ministers at Hampton University.

    • They’re already spinning it for him. Let’s guess how many plays this will get in the lamestream versus Romney’s so-called 47% speech. Most of their “coverage” of the video is on BLOGS. Not in the news. They quote SOME of the off-the-cuff remarks that deliberately weren’t in the transcript provided to the media by Obama’s campaign, but they TELLINGLY stop just short of the statements about the BULLET not being removed yet (whatever the hell that means) AND Obama referring to how they shouldn’t build roads in the “suburbs” but instead in “OUR neighborhoods.” Now, he’s speaking to black preachers so whose neighborhoods does he refer to as OURS? This is so like Holder testifying to Congress and referring to blacks as “MY people” as if he’s not the Attorney General of ALL Americans. They STILL cover for him and commit LIES OF OMISSION. Just as they WILL NOT ALLOW THE TRUTH ABOUT BENGHAZI TO DAMAGE BARRY, JUST AS THEY COVERED FOR HIM CONCERNING HIS CONNECTIONS TO WRIGHT, AYERS, AND DORHN IN 2008, THEY’RE NOT GOING TO COVER THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT A RACIST HE IS AT HEART.

      Notice that Politico describes this group of BLACK PREACHERS, which were his audience, as simply the “crowd.” So the context is out. Nobody knows he’s playing to a select group, pretending to be black. They did, on the first page, say that “some” see him as pandering and putting on his black act. (my words) On page TWO of the online story, Politico does quote the part about “our neighborhoods” but since they removed the context that he was speaking to an audience of BLACKS, that removes the racial divisiveness and makes it sound as if he was simply speaking generically about American neighborhoods. Politico doesn’t tell readers that the transcript provided to the media excluded the inflammatory, divisive, racial comments that Obama made. That’s a critical fact, because they report that Tucker Carlson covered the speech and used the transcript, and by that they IMPLY that Tucker was somehow neglectful in not reporting on these unreported comments before. He didn’t report them because the transcript DELETED THEM. It was deliberately incomplete, imho. Politico also uses an edited version of the tape and does not link to the full version that Carlson published.

      This will make you feel better, though:

      • “The spine of Obama’s speech is a parable about a pregnant woman shot in the stomach during the 1992 Los Angeles riots. The baby is born with a bullet in her arm, which doctors successfully remove. That bullet, Obama explains, is a metaphor for the problems facing black America, namely racism. (At a similar speech he gave in April of 2007 at the First AME Church in Los Angeles to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the riots, according to a church member who was there, Obama described the slug as, “the bullet of slavery and Jim Crow.”)

        At least 53 people were killed during the chaos in Los Angeles, many of them targeted by mobs because of their skin color. But Obama does not describe the riots as an expression of racism, but rather as the result of it. The burning and shooting and looting, he explains, amounted to “Los Angeles expressing a lingering, ongoing, pervasive legacy, a tragic legacy out of the tragic history of this country, a history this country has never fully come to terms with.”

        And with that, Obama pivots to his central point: The Los Angeles riots and Hurricane Katrina have racism in common.”

        That is from Tucker Carlson’s story and it explains the bullet reference. It’s a reference to this story: http://articles.latimes.com/1992-05-08/local/me-1667_1_bullet-wound

        This is really amazing to me. Who shot that woman and her child? Did white people? NO. This happened during the race riots in LA. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1992_Los_Angeles_riots Blacks shot and killed people, TARGETING THEM FOR THEIR SKIN COLOR–that would be WHITE skin. BLACK RACISM, NOT WHITE RACISM.

        The bullet in that child’s arm, in Obama’s thinking, is a metaphor for WHITE RACISM. To me, it’s a metaphor for what can happen when demagogues whip people up into a frenzy by making them believe that some “other” (aka “they”) are responsible for every problem in their own lives. Therefore, they’re justified to go out and riot, loot, steal, vandalize, burn, and SHOOT INNOCENT WOMEN AND BABIES IN THE WOMB. Instead of being appalled, he encourages this thinking.

        • “As the speech continues, Obama makes repeated and all-but-explicit appeals to racial solidarity, referring to “our” people and “our neighborhoods,” as distinct from the white majority. At one point, he suggests that black people were excluded from rebuilding contracts after the storm: “We should have had our young people trained to rebuild the homes down in the Gulf. We don’t need Halliburton doing it. We can have the people who were displaced doing that work. Our God is big enough to do that.””

          OUR GOD. Wasn’t it on TUCC’s website that their God is not the same God of other Christians? Remember, way back when? Before they scrubbed the website? I seem to recall that they believe there’s a different Jesus Christ that’s for them (or else that He’s not for anybody else). Black Liberation Theology and Cone.

          • YUP! https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2012/06/12/what-does-real-hope-look-like-open-thread/comment-page-1/#comment-85221

            “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black communityBlack theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.” http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/47229

          • ~ then he goes in to “those people” mode when describing how inept and infantile “they” are:

            ‘Need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately in an office’

            who is he talking about? people beneath him? (or, okay, i won’t say it.)

    • In Obama’s speech, he talked about the Stafford Act where the government would give disaster areas $10.00 for every $1.00 needed by the city i.e., New Orleans to rebuild. It was revealed that Congress waived the requirement of that $1.00 a full 10 days prior to Obama’s speech. Also, Obama voted nay on allowing it to pass. Apparently, it was attached to a bill increasing funding for Iraq — or so the dems say that is his reason for voting nay. Yet there he was telling those listening that the government didn’t care and was stingy in that they didn’t allow the waiver. New Orleans got their Stafford money approved. Obama was a Liar then as he is now – and he didn’t mention that he voted against New Orleans getting their waiver and thus the money.

    As College Sophomore Eric Holder Participated in Armed Takeover of Former Columbia University ROTC Office

    As college student, Eric Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office

    As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned.

    Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon.

    Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”
