Unbiased media worried that Obama might not be able to exploit Hurricane Sandy sufficiently

The mainstream media is dependably tough on the President of the United States, assuming he’s a Republican and/or hasn’t been elected yet.

Charlie Spiering reports:

During a weekend press gaggle aboard Air Force One, White House reporters were naturally concerned about Hurricane Sandy and questioned the White House Press staff about the president’s hurricane preparations.

But one reporter was anxious to know if they were prepared for Mitt Romney.

“Are you worried about the possible politicization of the storm response?” the reporter asked. “We’re a week out from the election. Governor Romney might say something about how you guys are responding to it or going to rallies and that stuff.”

OUT:“What about your gaffes?”
IN: “What about your potential gaffes?”

They’ve gone beyond just running interference for Obama and trying to scuttle stories that are bad for his reelection prospects. [cough cough Benghazi cough cough] Now they’re taking the initiative and asking if there’s anything they can do to help the Obama campaign. We already knew that’s how they see their role, but it’s nice to have it out in the open.

The MSM is irreparably broken. Fortunately, the Internet was designed to route around damage.

We got this.

Update: Another one for the Double Standards binder: Twitter users who threatened Romney’s life remain active.
