    On Tuesday, David Freddoso, author of Spin Masters, How the Media Ignored the Real News and Helped Reelect Barack Obama, joined the hosts of Fox & Friends to discuss pro-Democratic media bias in 2012 and beyond. The author detailed the case against the media in this interview and in a recent column for the New York Post in which he quotes a political scientist who attributes much of the nation’s support for Democratic politicians to the pro-Democratic coverage of politics in the mainstream media. Without that biased media, the author and the political scientist say, the nation’s voting patterns would more closely mirror any typical red state. . . . .

    Except of course for the hopeless (and hapless) 47%.

    It's more of a nightmare, really.

    It is shocking that media sources like Fox can be so biased, and I'd be delighted in Fox could put a stop to that.

    Will the Republicans ever understand that they didn't actually win in November?

    Is there a reason we should, you still think Gore won.

    I'm sure the state-run media outlets like MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, PBS, etc. would deny they campaigned for our communist president but we all know differently.

    Gore was an atrocious candidate, who should have won easily, but ran a poor campaign.

    Very likely he was cheated, but it doesn't change the fact that he was not a strong candidate.

    Most media operations in America are commercial for-profit enterprise.

    If Republicans, who tout themselves as the superior in business/free enterprise savvy, can't compete in the media sector of business,

    whose fault is that?

    Funny indeed. I do admit that it would be funny to see on every channel what we see on Fox; the throbbing veins of the commentator as they try to rationalize the most recent GOP disaster, the peroxide blonde who hosts the show in much of the same way a hood ornament announces the arrival of a car from the 70's, the "experts" who just happen to agree with the commentators err I mean reporters, and a fantastic view of the world that indulges the darkest fixtures of human nature.
