While the establishment media was busy parroting President Obama’s announcement of Osama bin Laden’s supposed assassination, reporting the unsubstantiated claims as if they were unquestionable facts, much of the so-called “alternative” press was far more cautious — and accurate, it turns out. But more importantly, with the new official storyline indicating that bin Laden was in fact unarmed, bigger and much more important questions are beginning to emerge.

In terms of coverage, it turns out that the skeptical approach proved far superior in terms of getting it right. Countless mainstream sources were so confident in Obama’s word that they reported many of the claims as fact without even attributing them to the President.

    The only reason obama was even capable of finding osama, was because of the policies that Bush implemented and now obama wants to illiminate. Obama was not capable of finding osama on their own, especially with the inexperienced clowns , so to speak, in his administration. If obama is any kind of cowboy, it is indeed a DRUGSTORE COWBOY, not a real Texas Cowboy. He doesnt know how to dance, much less, ride a stallion.
