Are major elements of the media controlled by Obama Campaign? Is there financial connection or coordination?

On the day that Obama flip flops and suddenly pretends to support gay marriage (i.e. no actual policy change) the Washington Post releases an eleven page report (seemingly thin of actual facts or evidence) that portrays some college prank involving Mitt Romney from over 45 years ago as gay bullying.

In a simliar timing coincidence, George Stephanopoulos asked Mitt Romney THREE TIMES about some silly hypothectial case as to whether IF A STATE TRIED TO BAN CONTRACEPTION.....two weeks later, Obama Re-election campaign tried pushing a "Republican War on Woman" narrative to contextually frame their decision to force Catholic Bishops to provide free abortificent drugs to anyone employed at their charity organizations, schools, or hospitals.

Does anyone else find all of this very very Orwellian?

Is this like Ezra Klein's JournoList conspiracy of 2008 on Steroids?!?!

Is it inately dangerous if we get our information from people who overtly collude with the people in control of the government??? If Obama Campaign's allies like Media Matters or NOW successfully shut down the only alternatives like fox News or Talk Radio, will essentially lose all avenues of access to dissenting information?? Will democracy be over?

Would Washington Post every consider writing an 11-page story on LA Times has a video of Obama applauding anti-semitic statements by family friend Bill Ayers at Rashid Khalidi's birthday party? Or about growing up in Hawaii next to a card-carrying Communist Frank Marshall Davis? Or about time as child at Islamic school in Indonesia?

    Most of the media is owned by very powerful wealthy individuals that tend to be Republicans.

    There is no way to equate Obama to gay bashing that leads to teen suicide.

    Romney is still a gay basher and advocates a nationwide ban on both same-sex marriage and adoption. Do you?

    The State controlled media has protected and coordinated with Obama every step of the way. Read "Rules for Radicals", it's the Obama playbook.

    I doubt it, and I can't but help you have nothing but very dubious circumstantial evidence, but you are free to believe your imagination if you wish. It might help you to feel better when your candidate loses.
