Van Jones should be Front Page news!

Most Major News Outlets Largely Ignore Van Jones Controversy

FOX News.com, Monday, September 07, 2009

Most of the major news outlets, like The New York Times and The Washington Post, ignored the swelling heat surrounding former White House environmental adviser Van Jones and the videos surfacing of his controversial statements. (link)

If not for Glen Beck and bloggers, Van Jones would still be serving in the administration. It is unbelievable that most of the news media did not find this story more newsworthy. The Tennessean placed the article on the very back page of the front section of the paper. This story got downplayed by all of the major media except for Fox. I can not understand why the "mainstream" press thinks that it is not newsworthy when an self-avowed Marxist and anarchist is appointed to an important administrative position and then is forced to resign.

Not only is Jones a Marxist and anarchist, but he is "9-11 truther." a defender of a Black convicted cop killer and he recently refereed to Republicans as "assholes." I can only imagine how the press would have responded if, for example, George W. Bush or any President had appointed a self avowed admirer of Hitler who denied the Holocaust. Would the story of his appointment and subsequent resignation be buried on the back page of the paper? No! It would be covered in screaming bold headlines.

I also find it amassing that Jones passed the administrations vetting process. I can only assume that being a professed Marxist does not bother the President and is not seen as a factor that would disqualify one from serving in the administration. Given Obama's affiliation with American Communist terrorist William Ayers, and radical Black Nationalist Reverend Jeremiah Wright, I guess we should not be surprised by a Van Jones.

Mr. Jones was one of the many "czars" appointed by Obama, that unlike cabinet appointees do not have to undergo Congressional confirmation. I hope Beck or someone with the resources to do so, looks at all of the appointments of the Obama administration and finds out who else Obama has appointed.
