MSM Bias

As more and more people find out that most of the MSM are just shills for for the Democrat Party, the better the country will be.

As EE posted on the FP today,  the Journolist were in full force to protect the Boy wonder who would become the Boy King.  The MSM tried to protect Obama from his association to a (Black) Liberation Theology priest, who was a former Muslim also.

As with most newsworthy stories like this, only Fox News and the New Media (Bloggers) were running the story.  You would think that the MSM would try and look into the past of Obama, hell they found a DUI that Bush had many years ago on the eve of the elections.  But we have nothing on Obama from the MSM, no school records, no past arrests if there were any, no digging to see who Obama was.

The MSM was fully behind the Obama campaign and were much too eager to get behind the “First Viable Black Candidate”.  I guess Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are just nobodies, well at least in the eyes of the MSM, unless they are on the next crusade against “Whitey”

Journalism today is nothing like it was in the past.  With the 24 hour news cycle, the MSM need to fill in stories, when before you only had 1/2 hour of news a night for the most part.   So you would think that the MSM would be all over this story to fill in those 24 hours in the day.  Well, they could not say anything bad about the boy who would become king:

Thomas Schaller, a columnist for the Baltimore Sun as well as a political science professor, upped the ante from there. In a post with the subject header, “why don’t we use the power of this list to do something about the debate?” Schaller proposed coordinating a “smart statement expressing disgust” at the questions Gibson and Stephanopoulos had posed to Obama.

“It would create quite a stir, I bet, and be a warning against future behavior of the sort,” Schaller wrote.

Tomasky approved. “YES. A thousand times yes,” he exclaimed.

Isn’t the So-Called Journalists in the MSM suppose to be neutral and report the news, not have an agenda???
Every year the MSM looses more followers and is only shooting themselves in the foot, calling concerned citizens “teabaggers” and calling anyone that does not agree with the script racist.
More and more people are getting their news from blogs and  other online sources. Not to say that they are not biased, but they are up front on their bias.   So you can read some stuff with a grain of salt, or look up both sides of a debate and decide for yourself.   But supposedly the MSM is the arbiter of truth, and supposedly neutral.   Well that veneer is slowly but surely be peeled away.
Remember this story while you watch or read the news.
