Media Covering Up Damage Obama's Doing To U.S. Industries, Senator Says

By Craig Bannister | May 24, 2012 | 2:13pm EDT

In an exclusive interview with “The Right Views,” Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) says the “drive-by media” is covering up the destructiveness of Pres. Obama’s anti-energy policies – and misleading the public about Obama’s true stance on energy:

"Right Views" Editor Craig Bannister: “The key, you seem to say, is educating the public about what Obama is actually doing, what the EPA is actually doing and what they really believe about oil and natural gas.

“But, don’t you see the media covering up for the Obama administration?”

Sen. James Inhofe: “Yes.”

Bannister: And, promoting what Obama wants the public to believe about having an all-of-the-above energy strategy?”

Sen. Inhofe: “Yes, without question, the drive by media is so biased in his favor that they’re going to make every effort to do that.

“And a year ago they were able to do it much more than they are today because you know, of your media, of talk media, of Fox and you know, people are now waking up to the fact that - what’s referred to as the drive-by media – loves Obama and wants to have him back in power.

“So, they will do all they can to cover up what he has done to the energy industry and many of the other industries here in this country.  And, I don’t think they’ll get by with it.”
