Bias on Display: Media Ignores Michelle O’s $2700 Sweater But Attacks Ann Romney for $990 Top

Sorry, lamestream media. We’re on to you.
The corrupt media is all upset that “elitist” Ann Romney wore a $990 top during an interview this week on “This Morning.”

But, as noted yesterday, this same media cheers the fashion and style of Queen Michelle  whose taste in sweaters cost her over $2,000 a pop.

The First Lady hosted an event for children in the East Room of the White House today as part of “Bring Your Children to Work Day”. For the occasion, Mrs. O debuted a gingham houndstooth pleated skirt paired with a L’Wren Scott embroidered peach cardigan. Lovely! (Mrs. O)

The Free Beacon reported, via Weasel Zippers:

The first closet has increasingly become a subject of interest since Michelle Obama swept fashionably into the White House in her Jason Wu ball gown.

Yesterday, Ann Romney’s clothes stole the spotlight as she wore a fashionable top on Tuesday for an appearance with her husband on CBS “This Morning.” Politico reported that the Reed Krakoff shirt would “cost you a pretty penny,” at $990.

But Mrs. Romney will need to step up her fashion game if she wants to fill the shoes of Mrs. Obama.

In March, the first lady visited her British counterpart Samantha Cameron wearing a L’Wren Scott sweater in a trendy bright yellow hue. The embellished cardigan costs $2,720.

Obama, widely regarded as a fashion icon, likes the brand so much that she wore a peach cardigan from the same line last week during the Take Your Child to Work Day festivities.

The next day, she wore another sweater from L’Wren Scott, this one white with red trim from the Spring 2011 ready to wear collection, for a visit to Fort Stewart with the president.

She has been a fan of the brand’s cardigans since at least 2010, when she wore this black and white number to a childhood obesity event.

The first lady’s favorite embellished cardigans from L’Wren Scott range from $2,095 to $3,320.

Of course, there’s a reason for the media madness. The lamestream has to paint the Romney’s as elite snobs so you’ll dislike them. It’s part of their smear campaign. How else is Obama supposed to win in 2012? Certainly not by his failed policies.

    Neither Anne Romney nor Michelle Obama are running for office. Let’s preserve our own dignity and leave both of them out of it.

  • jorgen

    I agree with #1: neither run for office. Secondly, Romney is from a wealthy family so they can afford it. The Obamas are typical nuveau riche and behaves like it.

    The media is just despicable. Jon Stewart was even making fun of them for the blatant Mormon double standard last night (“why haven’t you asked Harry Reid that question….”)

    But it is nice to see the First Lady in a tasteful outfit for once. Now is she could wipe that smug look off her face and sit up straight she will be on her way to figuring out her job.

    I would prefer to leave them both out of it, for the stated reason. However, the MSM promotes a double-standard so we must try to balance it out.

    $2,700! What is it made from to cost so much? (choose one)

    1) The fur of some of the dogs Barack ate last week.
    2) Recycled toilet paper, so it’s nice and green.
    3) The hair of all the people who ended up under Obama’s bus.
    4) The hair of random Tea Party protesters the FBI rounded up.
    5) Tufts of hair from victims of ‘randomly selected’ TSA groping.
    6) A certain kind of hair from Secret Service hookers.
    7) Hair shaved from attendees of drunken parties at a GSA convention.
    8) Magic hair from Barack’s imaginary…err ‘composite’ girlfriends.
    9) Beard hair that fell off Occupy protesters because of all the scabies.
    10) Hair donated by adoring fans, such as Chris Matthews whose leg tingles when he yanks out a hair.

    There. I got that out of my system. She really should have some consideration for optics. Many people can’t make ends meet, yet she parades around wearing 2 mortgage payments, or 7 car payments, or 9 months worth of food, or 2 gallons of gas.

    Neither #1, Lady Mondegreen nor #2, jorgen get it. The point is that the liberal media points out and shames Anne Romney for the cost of a sweater while they praise Michelle Obama’s “style” that cost 3x to 4x more than Anne’s attire.

    doesn’t matter what moo-shell wears…you can’t hide chewbacca ugly

  • Limousine Barry

    What’s the big deal? She wore it once and then tossed it the closet with her hundereds of other expensive dresses.

    Besides, it made her look fat! And, it made her butt look huge! I cannot answer any more questions. Good day.

    Since we’re talking about Michelle Obama’s fashion sense – I posted this May 1 under the
    Bill Ayers May 1 event in Chicago:

    Check out the Red and Black ensembles:

    Symbols matter.

    The red-and-black flag is the symbol of the anarcho-syndicalist and anarcho-communist movements. Black is the traditional color of anarchism, and red is the traditional color of socialism (Wikipedia Red and Black)

    So why doesn’t the Romney camp punch back with the facts and the pictures?

    @ Lady Mondegreen, Both Mooch and Anne are active campaigners for their husbands so the critiques are justified, and they are fair game. Especially Mooch, who has been campaigning along side her husband for over 4 years now.

    CR! The funniest thing I’ve read today. It’s only 9:09am EDT.

    The MSM should lay off both women, however the MSM wants to create this false facade between Romney and the FLOTUS. This whole rich man, poor man meme will be worn out by August. Obama has nothing to run on, however the June swoon is about to roar. SCOTUS will be determining where the campaign goes, for both Romney and Obama, when they announce their ruling on Obamacare. CR great list.

    At least Ann Romney’s wardrobe isn’t taxpayer funded!

  • BlackBush

    Shave that wookie down and dress it up in designer. Instant 1st lady.
