    What are your "favorites"?

    I'll start with the jawdropper where MSNBC was so determined to paint a portrait of racists rising up in reaction to "a man of color in the presidency" that they edited out the race of a black man who was toting some impressive fire power at a healthcare rally taking place near where Obama was making a speech.

    The white racist in his own words ;)

    "The most trusted man in America", Walter Cronkite going to Vietnam after the incredible US victory in the Tet offensive and lying to America that the victory was a stalemate. It caused LBJ to throw in the towel and destroyed everything the US Military worked for. After the war VC general Giap admitted that he was finished after Tet but Cronkite and LBJ breathed new life into the communist offensive.

    The blatant editing of the Zimmerman 911 call to make it seem as if he was racially profiling Trayvon Martin. And seasoned veterans went down for this; losing their jobs, careers and reputations.

    .

    Two of my, uh, favorites, showing how ridiculous and transparent our "media" can be:

    First, both a CNN anchor and "reporter" make zero secret of their strong distaste for Tea Partiers:

    And then Fox's fabulous Obama "terrorist fist jab":
