    Progressive media claims they'll be 'tougher' on Obama now

    Given the rationale they have embraced, is there any reason to believe this will happen, or that it will matter if it does?

    Glenn Greenwald guardian.co.uk, Monday 3 December 2012

    Last week, the Huffington Post's media reporter, Michael Calderone, wrote a long article on the widespread perception that MSNBC isn't so much a progressive network as it is "simply pro-Obama". Citing a new Pew study that found that MSNBC was actually more negative toward Romney than even Fox News was against Obama "and offered mostly positive coverage about Obama" - most remarkably, during the last week of the campaign, MSNBC did not air a single story critical of Obama: not one - Calderone wrote: "post-election, the question is whether MSNBC continues cheering Obama on - or takes him on."

    On Sunday, Politico's media reporter, Dylan Byers, set out in search of an answer to that question, not regarding MSNBC specifically but "progressive media" generally. Here's the crux of what he found:

    "For the better part of four years, progressive media has had President Barack Obama's back.

    Left-Wing Media Plans to Get Tough on Obama [​IMG]

    Don Irvine
    December 3, 2012

    Politico’s Dylan Byers reported on Sunday that some members of the progressive, or left-wing, media are making efforts to push Obama to complete the key parts of the unfinished liberal agenda that he first outlined in 2008.

    Those parts include climate change, drone strikes, gun control and closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, among others.

    Byers points out that one of the first to challenge Obama was none other than the editorial page of The New York Times, which launched a series titled, “Goals for a New Term.” The Times was sharply critical of the President, saying Obama lacked courage on gun control and had adopted the “Bush team’s extravagant claims of state secrets and executive power, blocking any accountability for the detention and brutalization of hundreds of men at Guantánamo and secret prisons, and denying torture victims their day in court.”
