Liberal Media Bias Worse Than Ever
"60 Minutes" interview and Newtown video editing slammed
http://politix.topix.com/homepage/4393-libera ...

Liberal media bias has reached a new low. That's the verdict rendered by Peter Wehner, writing in Commentary.

Wehner, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and former senior policy adviser to President George W. Bush, zeroes in on the recent "60 Minutes" interview with President Barack Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The interview by correspondent Steve Kroft represents "the unprecedented swooning and cheerleading by the press for Barack Obama," Wehner writes.

Some of this can be laid at the feet of old-fashioned liberal media bias, in which Democratic politicians are given a pass for issues conservatives are excoriated for. But it goes deeper than that. President Obama "is liberal, Ivy League, and a person of color. That is simply too powerful of a combination for the elite media to resist.(If Obama were conservative, Ivy League, and a person of color, he would be a marked man, as Clarence Thomas has been.)"

"Mr. Obama touches the media's erogenous zone in ways that no other president, even JFK, ever has," Wehner adds. "One gets to sense that journalists not only like Mr. Obama; they are in awe of him. They want to impress him and please him and are afraid of being rebuked by him."

Media coverage is also being called slanted in the halls of Congress. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) is none too happy news outlets for reporting that gun rights advocates "heckled" the father of a six-year-old who was killed at last month's elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Stockman (@SteveStockmanUS), who is back in the House after serving a single term 1995-97, tweeted, "MSNBC caught lying again. Bogus claims of pro-gun Newtown heckler." Then, "This is at least the fourth time in seven months MSNBC has been caught doctoring tapes for political reasons."

The media can't change what anyone paying attention see's in their community. The media can't change what the last 4 yrs shows. And when the failures are severe enough they cannot hide those.
Any daily news shows it's only getting worse. All the excuses are gone, his failures will continue to become obvious to even the staunchest obama supporter. The question is will it then be to far gone to fix without complete collapse.

Would bet none of these bashers could even tell you what the stock market did today, or who the mayor of NY is, or the former mayor who died today. They live in a world of spoon fed information and don't bother to check facts.

I disagree the media or at least Foxx was able to keep some so entertained during the previous Bush/Cheney reign that they were blind to the missmanagement and almost total collapse of our republic.

Of course it's biased . It's all owned by one group, Jews, who love to stir up shit , create lies, turn people against one another, and hide their true political agenda just for profit. Thank God for the Internet. The majority of us don't read their newspapers or listen to their right-wing/left-wing bullshit. The "gun control " debate is a good example. The media deliberately distorted the facts about the Sandy Hoke shooting to push their agenda to disarm America. It didn't work. Now every democracy-loving , decent tax paying American is DARING the government to TRY and get their guns. People stood up and the Feds know they're no match for 100+ million Americans. Oops better make Black Obama look like a good ole boy because the majority of white gentles hate him -and they're slowly turning against American Jews because of their blind financial and political support of the Stare of Israel. I'm proud of my Country and its people. REAL Americans are ready to stand and fight (within) if they have to. Washington DC and New York , and LA are the nation's shitholes. Just let them implode and take their liberal media with them.

I get great pleasure in boycotting all advertizers on tv no matter who or what they are. It is a challenge but a joy also. Try it you may like it also. This could change the news media when they have no moneys to operate when the advertizers pull out.

Fox News corp. is owned by a Australian and a Muslim. "Americans most trusted news source" yea, right, they have no agenda. GE owns NBC, gave over 1 million to help get GWB elected,in 2000 but are called the liberal media, which its how they report, all the media wants to do is call each other bias, and convince their followers only "we" tell the truth. And the others lie, and all they and the talking heads have done is help divide the country even more by spreading hate.How can anyone with one brain cell fall for the propaganda they ALL spread to get higher ratings which means more money.

Liberal bias is partisan selection or distortion of information to support liberal policies. This bias can be expressed by professors and public school teachers, College Board exams, reporters and other journalists in mainstream media, and any other information source. Typically purveyors of liberal bias falsely present themselves as being objective. Liberal bias includes techniques such as distorted selection of information, placement bias, photo bias and liberal style. There is a difference between being liberal, having a liberal perspective, and having a liberal bias.

The essence of liberal bias is to dismiss or even to censor all opposing views. For liberals, to allow the airing or publishing of an opposing view creates the risk that people might discover errors in the liberal viewpoint. On the other hand, Conservatives typically uphold freedom of ideological expression, with many expressing that although they may oppose a liberal view with every fiber of their being, they will defend to the death their right to say it, because they believe that in the marketplace of ideas the true will always win over the false.

Conservatives do protect the right of anyone to speak what they please. Liberals only protect their right to speak what they believe and seek censorship of any other view being exposed. Liberals are placed throughout our school system preaching their bias to our youth and have been for many years. The news media has attracted them not accidentally but by design due to the mass exposure of their propaganda and their ability of omission concerning opposing views and truths or facts attached to a story that they would not want exposed. Liberals are as much for omission of information as the are for distortion of it. A liberal can twist a catastrophic situation related to and caused by another liberal into an act that makes the liberal appear to be the victim of a plot by their foe. They have no pride in their reports and have no integrity when reporting truth is only a word to them. Bias is as stated truly their only guide.
