TheBlaze posted a story earlier this week about mainstream networks CBS, NBC and ABC not being asked to air President Barack Obama’s immigration speech.
But Univision and cable networks aired the speech, according to CNN reporter Brian Stetler, who added, “Maybe he’s trying to speak to a more niche audience."
Here's what some readers of TheBlaze had to say about the issue:
How sad is it that the American people have to fight their own president every day? Americans have had enough of everything that this jerk does. He is one arrogant, obnoxious narcissist.
It reminds me of the feeling I get when I used to look at my TV screen and see people oppressed by dictators all over the world for the past 50-some years of my life — and now its happening to the U.S..
This is another example (as if we needed one) of big-government overreach and Obama controlling or failing to control our airwaves — all that we see and what we hear or don’t see or hear. This in itself is grounds for impeachment in my mind.
Of course the MSM will cave and show his speech anyway even though Obama didn’t take the unprecedented action of not asking them to broadcast his speech, like Stalin famously did in 1948. Likely all the broadcast networks will show the speech given the topic. This is yet another example of Obama taking over every aspect of our lives and tossing our freedoms in the garbage.
If English is your primary language, then Obama’s amnesty declaration tonight is not meant for you. It is airing on Univision to coincide with the Spanish Grammys which are being delayed for the speech.
This is Obama’s “I want to import lifelong Democrat voters” speech. He doesn’t care how you got here...he just wants to make sure you know that he and his ilk will give you stuff if you get here. In fact…if English IS your primary language, Obama would rather you didn’t watch his speech tonight.
“Stelter suggested this meant maybe the president is 'not going all the way' in his announcement."
“'Maybe he’s trying to speak to a more niche audience,' the reporter said."
Niche audience? Oh yeah, like Hispanic only! He doesn’t want the American people to watch him decimate the Constitution on mainstream media until it’s over and done with. I don’t understand WHY HE CAN’T BE STOPPED! And why doesn’t anyone point out that 5 million illegal immigrants will now be eligible for welfare, which you and I will pay for?
The president knows the country does not support this action, but he intends to proceed with his agenda to wreck America in spite of us. If I was him, I wouldn’t want that televised.
WE DO NOT NEED IMMIGRATION REFORM! We only need to enforce the laws already on the books and seal the borders north and south. Your family probably came over and entered because of the immigration laws. We do not need to change anything. We do not need any illegals and their families living off our welfare system. I lived in Mexico for years, and it and other countries do not make it comfortable for illegals. Neither should we. Illegals have forced our ERs and hospitals to close due to expensive care; they have insulted us by not learning OUR English language and customs or melded into our society; they have ruined (along with Common Core) public education; they commit crimes and fill our jails and prisons to overload, and more. Just kick them out each and every member. Who cares if they have “legal” family here? What is important is that illegals NOT be allowed to roost here and soak up jobs, free education (even college) and deprive our legal citizenry. I am compassionate but not stupid! This is not a situation for compassion but enforcing our laws and saving America.
Unbeknownst to most Americans, Barack Obama plans to issue an edict that defies U.S. law and the U.S. Constitution by establishing amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants. He's doing it on Mexican Revolution Day, traditionally celebrated on November 20 in Mexico and by Mexicans everywhere. It's the equivalent of America’s 4th of July.
Obama’s choice of this date represents a departure from his Oath of Office and the U.S. Constitution — and creates a permanent symbolic relationship between his executive action and Mexico’s violent revolutionary and civil wars from 1910-1920.

This is our mainstream media, to a "T" these days.
Got to say, Glenn Beck was the first to call this and was mercilessly crucified over it!
