"Blamestream media” is a nickname that some have applied to the “mainstream media” (MSM). The term “lamestream media” (cited in print since at least 1999) indicates a lame mainstream media, such as a newspaper that prints what the government says without serious investigation. “Blamestream media,” for example, describes a media source with obvious favoritism (such as Democrat or Republican) that lamely follows its bias and casts blame at a perceived enemy.
The term “blamestream media” has been cited in print since at least February 2006, but became popularized by conservative columnist Michelle Malkin‘s January 12, 2011 story, “Sarah Palin speaks, blamestream media goes wild.”

Re: Dick Cheney accidentally shot and injured a man
Chuckles...you still fail to answer my question. It’s not like this would not have been reported by the administration, but a civilian spread the word before it could be officially announced. Another example of the blamestream media creating something out of nothing. It amazes me that the libs can keep a straight face while perpetuating a sense of anger over this ordeal.

Of course, you’re not hearing about this at all from the blamestream media except in passing.

Re: Fort Hood Shootings
Yup, another FINE EXAMPLE of the worshippers of the so-called “religion of peace”. Of course, you won’t see the blamestream media admit he was a muslim terrorist, which his actions in going on the rampage qualify him for the distinction, just like the DC sniper (whom is about to get “the needle” within a few days).

Sarah Palin speaks, blamestream media goes wild

They criticized her for not saying anything.
Now, they’ll criticizing her for saying something.
The blamestream media is already up in arms — can we still say that? — over the use of the phrase “blood libel.”
