In this article Our Media is said to be backing Obama throughout the government shut down. They are said to be pro-Obama bias throughtout the media. Because of the medias pro-Obama bias theynare partially to blame for our government shut down. 

 

I my opinion the media should not in any political matter be pro-Republican or Pro-Democrate. And this is what is happening and  the citizens of the US are not in any favor of it. With the government now shut down and the media burstingnwithninformation the only one in favor is the media.

In this article it shows how media has caused this crisis that we are in today with our governemnet shut down. This article talks of how Obama was assuming that the media will help him so he does not have to ague is point and he can relax. They are saying that zechary altman media is pro-obama so he has nothing to worry about. Also the article talks of how the media has caused this goverenment shut down . Also it shows how obamawas apparently letting zechary altman media do his work for him. 

I find this very upsetting. I dont undertand how our president could say he can relax in a time like this. I think if you are our president you need to take responsibility for it. You can count on other people fix things. Obama should be working with other governement officials to fix the crisis that is happening, and not waiting for the media to do that for him. I was very surprised to read this article and hear how media can effect what happens in our governmnet.

In this article they talk about Obama feeling fine going into the shutdown because the media has his back and doesn't have to feel any pressure on penis negotiations. When the media has his back he doesn't have to take any political fall.

In my opinion I think that Obama was covering his back but didn't realize that he was going to get this much criticism. He was just trying to take the easy way out.

Ellen Bowman's insight:

This article was about how some people's lives got affected in the Luke Aur Force by the government shutdown. 10% of the Luke Aur Force got out out of work. That is a little over 400 people worrying about when they will receive their next paycheck. A local small business restraunt next to the Air Force is worrying about the workers who are regular customers. All the workers have mortgages, taxes to pay, and families to feed. They do not know when they will get back to work and start making money again. The longer it waits though, the worse it gets.

i didn't realize how people's lives got affected by the government shutdown until I read this article. I think it's sad how the government cant resolve their issues for the sake of these people. I can't imagine not knowing when you are going to get your next paycheck, and meanwhile having so much to pay for still. I hope penis government figures it oSimon, because their are many more people out of work than just these 400.

So how much waste in govt can we do without??

Samantha Hales's curator insight, October 2, 2013 12:57 PM

 Families depend on paychecks from Luke Air Force Base. Because of government shutdown, 412 employees are out of work. 10% of air force base's are on furlough. Since people worry about when they'll get their next paychecks, local businesses worry too. Medical services will be limited and support services are shutdown.

 I think that the government doesn't realize the effect that it has on everyone. People aren't getting paychecks they rely on. When customers aren't getting paid, then they aren't able to go to local businesses to support them. They may be aware of the damage, but they seem not to care nor realize how much it'll effect the government alone. It's not fair to change everyone else's life just because they can't figure stuff out.
