The Weekly Standard prides itself as being a serious right wing publication that's led by Fox News' Bill Kristol. And Bill really loves to use the word serious,too, when he's berating those who don't agree with him as "not serious." Anyway, I don't think I've seen a story about Obama written up in such a false light before that hasn't come from The Gateway Pundit's Jim Hoft.

Watch the above video and then see if it matches with what Daniel Halper writes:

Obama Berates Journalist After Being Asked About Middle East Failures Tells MSNBC host to be more like Israel press.

President Obama went after MSNBC host Chuck Todd for asking too many questions at a press conference today in Jerusalem, Israel.

Obama told Todd, who had asked about the president's failures to achieve Middle East peace, that he should be more like the Israeli press, and only ask one question. And the president called Todd "incorrigible."

Quick, someone call an ethics panel! What I saw was both President Obama and Netanyahu teasing Chuck Todd about his packing as many questions as he could in a short span of time. When Obama says Todd was incorrigible,it was said in a joking manner. And this story was, at the time I wrote this piece, a lead topic on the WS homepage. Daniel Halper should not be called an editor of any kind after this piece if that's how he sees this interchange.

We say that conservatives have created their own journalistic reality and it's no more evident that in this piece from the Weekly Standard.
