One must wonder what the political landscape of this nation would look like if we had an honest and responsible media. The fact that the media (MSM) is so lopsidedly biased in their reporting is the major reason that politicians, primarily Republicans, Conservatives and Christians, are forced to seek such substantial sums to fund campaigns for office.
Take the 2004 presidential election:
As Newsweek’s Evan Thomas famously remarked: “Let’s talk a little media bias here. The media, I think, wants Kerry to win. . . . They’re going to portray Kerry and Edwards as being young and dynamic and optimistic and there’s going to be this glow about them . . . that’s going to be worth maybe 15 points.”
The MSM’s “glow” for the kerry/edwards team compared to the treatment of “osama” obama is like comparing a dying match to the sun. Even when forced to confront the countless negatives of “osama” obama, the MSM always finds a way to shift all blame onto others.
The MSM claims there is no bias. When 90% of the media admits to voting for democrats, they get affirmation from one another that they aren’t biased.
MSM – Truth, Honesty and Integrity are NOT considered positive Characteristics. What better proof than dan rather and the fawning support he received from the other networks’ talking heads?
