    How do they reconcile that everytime 25 RWers get together and call themselves a "Tea Party" the ENTIRE media swarms upon the scene, often outnumbering the actual self-proclaimed Tea-Partiers 3-to-1 but yet, when 100s of thousands gathered protesting Bush some years ago, they were no where to be found. On top of that, when 100s of thousands gather today protesting against the system, aka RW politicos the media is reluctant to show up.

    How long did it take for them to cover the Madison protests? Ed Schultz was on it from day one pushing it, it took the rest of the media an entire 2.5 to 3 weeks after to cover it, then it was tepid, then a week in it picked up.

    How does that square away as the Mainstream Media being Liberal in the RWers brains?

    Do explain.

    Because several studies have proven that the MSM has a liberal bias. Is that clear enough for you?

    Several studies by whom?

    News and journalism by nature should be liberal or at least not allied with govt, political parties or corporations. But I am not sure the independence and liberalilsm are the same thing in that case.

    Let's start with the networks...
    CBS
    NBC
    ABC
    CNN
    MSNBC

    Newspapers
    NY Times
    LA Times
    NY Daily News
    Mother Jones
    The Nation

    There are probably hundreds of newspapers and quite a few magazines that are left leaning...
    And you know this to be true.

    Mass media sells generic advertising to young, gullible, innumerate rubes.

    Business and trade media sells big ticket items to those who can afford them. This is the media usually termed rightwing.

    So, no not all media is left wing just the dumbass media.

    How does anyone reconcile the lie you put forth?

    They were covered as early as 2007, long before they became a national movement.

    The media swarms when they gather in small numbers to illustrate how small the numbers are at that time and place. When they gather in the thousands please link where the media ignored them. Instead the media be-littled them, called the racists, mocked their message and told you there was only a coupla dozen for every thousand.

    Why do you have to lie Marc? Seriously, the new media isn't all liberal. But the Establishment media clearly is.

    No one is claiming that all media is liberal.

    As I recall when Bush was president the MSM seemed to take everything the administration said as gospel.

    No one dared to question a war president.

    There is no such thing as "the Liberal Media".
