I did live an interesting life! For years I cried at the absurdity of the ‘liberal media” moniker – then I thought I achieved some victory in the “Main stream” change – that at least didn’t say the opposite.

And now, I am witnessing the same degree of bias – only for the other side of the isle – and no, it’s still not “liberal media”

Tony Blankley takes a look (from the right)

While they have been liberal and blinkered in their worldview for decades, in 2007-08, for the first time, the major media consciously are covering for one candidate for president and consciously are knifing the other. This is no longer journalism; it is simply propaganda.

So, no, they were never liberal, and they did covered for the candidate of the other side before, but agree on what they do now

The image of Obama that the press has presented to the public is not a fair approximation of the real man. They consciously have ignored whole years of his life and have shown a lack of curiosity about such gaps, which bespeaks a lack of journalistic instinct.

Thus, the public image of Obama is of a “man who never was.”

and he realistically lists what’s going on:

The mainstream media ruthlessly and endlessly repeat any McCain gaffes while ignoring Obama gaffes. You have to go to weird little Web sites to see all the stammering and stuttering that Obama needs before getting out a sentence fragment or two. But all you see on the networks is an eventually clear sentence from Obama. You don’t see Obama’s ludicrous gaffe that Iran is a tiny country and no threat to us. Nor his 57 American states gaffe. Nor his forgetting, if he ever knew, that Russia has a veto in the U.N. Nor his whining and puerile “come on” when he is being challenged

That editing of the stammering sounds familiar…yeah, the media used to do it for the guy still in the White House.

And then, I need to agree with Blanley – not over did the pendulum swing to the other side, but it went way out higher than anything we ever seen

More appalling, a skit on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” last weekend suggested that Gov. Palin’s husband had sex with his own daughters. That show was written with the assistance of Al Franken, Democratic Party candidate in Minnesota for the U.S. Senate. Talk about incest.

For fairness sake, I remember a gross skit on Mad in 2004 having a Vietnamese woman say Kerry raped her, but that was one wild note in that bias cacophony, while in 2008, with Cho, Bernhardt and Rangel – this tone is becoming standard.

Blankley also rigtfully complains on the lack of reporting on Obama’s associates

In only two weeks, the media have focused on all the colleges Gov. Palin has attended, her husband’s driving habits 20 years ago, and the close criticism of the political opponents Gov. Palin had when she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

But in two years, they haven’t bothered to see how close Obama was with the terrorist Ayers.

Nor have the media paid any serious attention to Obama’s rise in Chicago politics. How did honest Obama rise in the famously sordid Chicago political machine with the full support of Boss Daley?

Not realizing that this happened before, Blankley continues

That conspiracy not only has Photoshopped out all of Obama’s imperfections (and dirtied up his opponent McCain’s image) but also has put most of his questionable history down the memory hole.

They did this for Bush too. Which only makes me more afraid of their motives. because where Blankley sees “liberals” I see the same people who brought us Bush. And the Iraq war.

Now they are thrusting Obama down the throat of the the media dumbed American voter.

Update

As I saw the howwible asshlery of Chris Rock on Letterman – this is the other mindboggling side of the coin: B0bots think they overcame the system!

ROCK: And then… She lost! Stop it!! She lost. And she did, and it’s not sexism, the reason she lost. She lost to a black guy nobody heard of. She didn’t lose to the power. Ooh, the power got her.

And watch for it – this myth is going to be paraded further if they actually manage to trump the actual vote count the way they goose the polls these days (playing with the samples)
