The government-run National Public Radio desperately sought to deflect attention away from Obama's scandals in their reports. But NPR took their government propaganda further with spin and blatant lies.
NPR- "In a letter this week to the leaders, Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham says "outrage over Benghazi" and the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups has "rightly focused the nation's attention squarely on the actions of the Obama administration." The letter goes on to say the House must continue holding oversight hearings, "but it would be imprudent to do anything that shifts the focus from the Obama administration to the ideological differences within the House Republican Conference."
That isn't quite what the letter says. It actually says only the oversight committee should deal with the scandals in the House:
"It is incumbent upon the House of Representatives to conduct oversight hearings on those actions, but it would be imprudent to do anything that shifts the focus from the Obama administration to the ideological differences within the House Republican Conference."
So who does the letter refer to when it says don't "do anything that shifts the focus"?
Again NPR snipped off an important part of the letter:
NPR- "Legislation such as the Internet sales tax or the FAARM Act which contains nearly $800 billion in food stamp spending, would give the press a reason to shift their attention away from the failures of the Obama administration to write another 'circular firing squad' article."
The media!! This conservative letter to the GOP didn't tell them focus on scandals, as NPR reported. It advised them not to shift media focus by raising taxes.
NPR falsely calls the opposition to a new federal internet tax and farm bill: "Don't legislate." The new internet tax would hurt the middle class, who most frequently make purchases over the internet. And the Senate's farm bill has twice the spending that the House farm bill would have. NPR doesn't mention that.
Conservative groups obviously obviously don't want higher taxes. That's all this letter was saying.
NPR lies as they report that with regards to the Senate farm bill, the "Senate is working through it now and is likely to pass it soon." Actually it already passed 3 days ago, and the House approved its own version.
