    [The LeftMedia is doing its best impression of the proverbial ostrich, while trying to keep the unwashed voting masses deaf, dumb, and blind regarding the malfeasances their idol is committing. Chris Matthews is still losing control of his bladder sphincter everytime he hears Obama's name mentioned. A real life demonstration of the NYT's motto "All the News That's Fit For You To Read"]

    "Old Media Is Bleeding Out Right Before Our Eyes

    Old media is literally committing suicide in front of our very eyes. In its desperate rush to see Barack Obama reelected, they are ignoring bigger and bigger stories. People have the Internet. They read The Drudge Report. They listen to talk radio. They read blogs. And in spite of all of these different access points, old media is ignoring blockbuster story after blockbuster story.

    Consider the following panoply of stories -- from the last few days alone -- courtesy of the national treasure known as NewsBusters.

    Outrage Over 72 Hours Of Network Silence On Catholic Lawsuit Spreads
    Fury over the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscastsÂ’ continued refusal to report the lawsuits Catholic entities have filed against the Obama administration has spread beyond the Media Research Center watchdog group and Catholic leaders to nine additional Christian leaders equally concerned about this decision to deliberately not report national news...

    If Old Media simply stuck to the Who Where Why What When and How of Journalism, and, consistently presented both sides of the story, they would bury Fox News and Conservative Media.

    The reality is that Old Media morphed into biased, Left Wing Media.....in the process, creating demand for biased, Right Wing Media. There are more of the Old Media than New Media thus making the market for Left Wing biased news, saturated.

    Well the old media is taking a bath in excrement, right now. If they think they're going to be able to simply climb up the rungs of the ladder out of the pool and still smell like a rose, as in times of old, they're sadly mistaken. Their nefarious activities have been largely circumscribed and each time they try to transgress as in the old days, the evil and duplicity of their actions are noted and pointed out creating more believers as time passes. Its been a long slog to this point, but the days when George Stephanopoulos can blithely ask the opposition candidate an orchestrated question on contraception seven days before Sandra Fluke raises her putrid head and still escape with his genitals still attached to his groin are rapidly drawing to a close.

    Twenty-eight states have laws requiring insurers to cover birth control to the same extent as other medications.

    Have the Bishops sued these states too?

    Their outrage would appear less partisan if they showed any similar level of concern for other Catholic teachings — such as preventing poverty or war.

    Imagine if a Christian Science group gained similar prominence and decided to run schools and nonprofits. If it had a moral objection to vaccinations, could it refuse to allow any health coverage for them, too?

    This concept of not reporting what they(whoever they are) don't want you to hear has been going on as long as there has been a media. Why do you think we don't hear stories about how we use the drones to attack unknown targets or that we use the drones to attack the first responders to our initial strikes?
