    Were not getting one
    ABC seems to be leading the BHO re-election campain
    The poll with the Post has Obama up 51-44 with only 5% un decided
    Rasmussen has it at a dead heat (BHO uo 1%) with around 16% un decided
    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll - Rasmussen Reports™

    Today ABC radio mentioned the killing of OBL, again, right after it mentioned the falling support for the war. It also mentiones the war we won in Iraq as a "bench mark" for poll numbers for the war Obama is resp for finishing.

    MSN has mention of the same event with Hillarys remembering the event

    USA today uses to kill a mokinbird as there way stirring racial tensions. They had BHO intro it and then followed with a "we will not stand for racisim" commercial
    Wonder why GWB never had that

    UE numbers are a lie. there going down due to people leaving the work force. CNBC did report that and I am sure fox news did, the big three call this job creation

    Doctored video
    Doctored recordings

    GM is a total failure. they have reported they paid us back early while they still owe us billions, the volt is dead

    Credit card fees as part of the reason gas is so hi. That one made me stop I was laughing so haed

    Exxons record profits, which is nothing more than a larger revenue with the same 8% profit, 1/2 of what tax is on gas

    I could go on. It worries me that the major news media is so far left and are failing the public it is the duty to report the truth too

    Media by-and-large lean Statist...and are in it full for Obama...Objectivity went out of the media decades ago...thier agenda is to change the Culture, destroy the Republic that gave them voice in the first place.

    Maybe if you keep hoping for the failure of US foreign policy and the economy, you'll get your way.

    what does that have to do with the truth?
    Look how can ABC/Post do a poll that has BHO at 51% to be re-elected and his approval ratings in the low 40s?
    Rasmussen has it 42-41, the most accurate polling service in 08 with 17% un decided, ABC has 5% un decided
    thats info, thats an exapmle that is biased

    GM owes us billion, the media reported they paid us back early
    what do you call that?
    And they used tarp money to pay us that so called total (that was about 45 billion short of the total)

    are you kidding me?

    So "JFK" sees no conflict of interests and media bias in the media sources he selects - even if they are funded by such notoriously conservative groups as Exxon Mobil and Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation.

    Are we now to assume, based on his "pearls of wisdom," that "media bias" can be viewed as nothing more than a left wing phenomena?

    The media needs to be a watch dog. It should not have covered up the fact that Bush lied us into Iraq.

    But the GOP have bullied the media. THey also own most all of it too now after Clinton let them deregulate it, but besides that, the media today won't call out Republicans when they lie for fear they will be labeled liberal or bias. So they just report what the GOP tells them and they don't ever ask follow up questions or call them out when they lie.

    Perfect example would be global warming. Today there is no doubt that human's are causing global warming. Only right wing scientists deny this. Same kinds that said cigarettes didn't cause cancer. Ones that are in the pockets of the tobacco or polluters pockets.

    But the media accepted the GOP's arguments and never fact checked them. So still today we have a lot of Americans that still believe humans aren't responsible for Global warming. If the media did their job, the GOP wouldn't get away with lying like they do.
