    Well, as long as Fox News is in business, I think we can be assured that there is at least one media outlet that will keep him honest. The likes of Hannity, O'Reilley and Beck do an admirable job in keeping their reporting and opinions fair and balanced.

    Thank goodness for that. Can you believe there are hate groups out there that want to do harm to our president?

    you're just angry that Obama won in a virtual landslide, and continues to have high favoribility raings.

    do you know how ridiculous you sound asserting that democrats are protected by the media? It doesn't even remotely pass the laugh test. Jimmy Carterwas mocked to death by the media, and bill clinton was hounded 24/7 for a small real estate transaction he lost money on, and for a blow job.

    The corporate owned media prefer Conservatives because they get tax breaks under them and are allowed to grow as big as they can to OWN market shares of any area they can strong arm into without any concern for the diversity of opinion in the populace.

    They Preened over and protected Bush his first 6 years and are in part responsible for the state of our country not to mention the rest of the world.

    The people have started to abandon them so they have allowed more diversity of thought to make money for them.

    They do it ONLY for the money.

    You're partly right, tm......the msm, in collaboration with the Democrats, talked down the US economy even as Bush was enjoying 4.4% unemployment and a thriving stock market..
    doing such a good jog as to actually convince the public of imaginary problems until they the imaginary problems finally materialized....next,
    herding voters to the left causing a liberal/socialist Democratic takeover of Congress ...
    and finally, with constant defamation of Conservatives, and creating a super-hero out of an otherwise empty suit, engineered the election of Obama....

    So...the msm is NOT "in part" responsible for the state of our country not to mention the rest of the world, but is "totally" responsible for the state of our country and "much" of the rest of the world.

    Between Election Day and March 9 the Dow fell 3,000 points....about 3 trillion lost.

    Did major media question Obama’s policies as being even partly responsible? No.
    Did major media quickly credit Obama when the market rallied a bit? Yes.

    Will the media take a bullet for Obama....heck no, they're perfect....they let Bush take it.

    Not to veer too far off topic, but you don't think the media ought to cover the president cheating on the first lady in the most sacred office in all the land?
