    Why no.......not at all......why do you ask? :eusa_whistle:

    The leftist bias of the New York Times beautifully encapsulated in seven words used about a week before two presidential elections. Headline over Saturday’s editorial on the third quarter GDP creeping up to 2.0 percent under Democrat Barack Obama: “Slow but Steady Improvement.” Headline twenty years ago (October 29, 1992) when Republican incumbent George H.W. Bush was in the White House and the third quarter GDP nearly doubled to 2.7 percent: “Gross National Letdown.”

    You won't find any headlines in mainstream which say 'Unemployment Rate Up' today.

    They all just lead with the job 'increases.'

    Anytime the rate drops, they have headlines which say 'Unemployment Rate Drops to ___"

    It is pure bias to protect their Messiah@.

    you guys are great. Just stop and ask yourselves..."what could I be doing that is worth while right now?".
    Instead of bitching about the same media bias you've been bitching about for years. You could say "Hey, I could start my own media outlet exercising my capitalistic rights, to combat the leftist media,".
    But then you think, "Nah... that would require that I actually practice what I preach to others. guess I'll go back to useless bitching."

    Is this basically it?

    Educating people. I know I do any chance I can. I know people who truly live by the MSM political offerings, both TV and newspaper. Learning to be a critical consumer of news is what everyone but the most partisan hacks should be doing.

    You didn't answer the question. I don't blame you.

    Every Democrat understands that they have to run both against the Republicans and the media. So yes, there's obviously a strong right-wing bias in the media. What do you expect? Every national media outlet is owned by very conservative megacorporations. Of course they're going to skew conservative.

    Does the first post and the link offered reflect this right wing bias in the media?

    The first post is a red herring, as it cherrypicks wildly and tries to compare two wildly different eras and economic conditions.

    Watched the media lately, and their increasingly comical attempts to declare the election is tied? Obama being a little ahead is always reported as a tie, but when Romney was ahead by the same amount, that was Romney's unstoppable momentum.
