Proof The Credentialed Media In The Tank For Obama

As proven by the Credentialed Media. IBD – Putting Money Where Mouths Are: Media Donations Favor Dems 100-1

media biasThe New York Times’ refusal to publish John McCain’s rebuttal to Barack Obama’s Iraq op-ed may be the most glaring example of liberal media bias this journalist has ever seen. But true proof of widespread media bias requires one to follow an old journalism maxim: Follow the money.

Even the Associated Press — no bastion of conservatism — has considered, at least superficially, the media’s favoritism for Barack Obama. It’s time to revisit media bias.

True to form, journalists are defending their bias by saying that one candidate, Obama, is more newsworthy than the other. In other words, there is no media bias.

    Wowwie Zowie even Fox News doesn’t want McCain for President they did not give him anything, just a big GOOSE EGG and REUTERS???? They gave the HIGHEST percentage well Teach I guess that somehow in the interest of “fairness” Americans should have all of their MSM cancelled until all of those contributions even out. And what about the Green Party and RON PAUL (the only candidate who is honest enough not to buy into the Global Warming Hoax) not only are they ignoring these campaigns they are not giving ANY money either IT IS JUST NOT FAIR

  2. It’s not about fair, it just highlights the bias of the credentialed media.
