AFTER Getting Obama Elected, Liberal Media Admits – Media Was Biased in Favour of Obama

November 9, 08

This should be an interesting factoid for the various commentors who seriously don’t believe there is any such thing as a huge liberal media bias in favour of Obama, over at here.

———————————

Here’s something we’ve been saying all along, but the Obama supporters who voted him in adamantly refused to be educated on, thanks to the Obamaworshiping media. Then again, it turns out they’re pretty much an educated but ignorant, un-informed, selectively deafblind bunch.

Via Gateway Pundit and Michelle Malkin, from How Obama Got Elected:

On November 4th, 2008, millions of Americans were shocked that a man of Barack Obama’s limited experience, extreme liberal positions and radical political alliances could be elected President of the United States. For many of these Americans, the explanation was rather simple… the news media, completely enamored with Obama, simply refused to do their job.

Zogby Poll

512 Obama Voters

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet…..

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Obama appeared on HALF the Times magazine covers this year! No bias?

Via Gateway Pundit, from The Washington Post:

The Post provided a lot of good campaign coverage, but readers have been consistently critical of the lack of probing issues coverage and what they saw as a tilt toward Democrat Barack Obama. My surveys, which ended on Election Day, show that they are right on both counts…

The op-ed page ran far more laudatory opinion pieces on Obama, 32, than on Sen. John McCain, 13. There were far more negative pieces (58) about McCain than there were about Obama (32), and Obama got the editorial board’s endorsement. The Post has several conservative columnists, but not all were gung-ho about McCain.

Stories and photos about Obama in the news pages outnumbered those devoted to McCain. Post reporters, photographers and editors — like most of the national news media — found the candidacy of Obama, the first African American major-party nominee, more newsworthy and historic. Journalists love the new; McCain, 25 years older than Obama, was already well known and had more scars from his longer career in politics.

But Obama deserved tougher scrutiny than he got, especially of his undergraduate years, his start in Chicago and his relationship with Antoin “Tony” Rezko, who was convicted this year of influence-peddling in Chicago. The Post did nothing on Obama’s acknowledged drug use as a teenager.

…One gaping hole in coverage involved Joe Biden, Obama’s running mate. When Gov. Sarah Palin was nominated for vice president, reporters were booking the next flight to Alaska. Some readers thought The Post went over Palin with a fine-tooth comb and neglected Biden. They are right; it was a serious omission. However, I do not agree with those readers who thought The Post did only hatchet jobs on her. There were several good stories on her, the best on page 1 by Sally Jenkins on how Palin grew up in Alaska.

As Gateway Pundit points out, journalists love the new… But they loved to trash Palin, while gushing adoringly over Obama.

Via Doug Ross, from the Philadelphia Daily News:

…there were enough reporters in 2008 who were willing to shed the cloak of contrived objectivity – to acknowledge the once unprintable fact that one side was lying more than other.

I myself would call it truth-telling, and honest journalism, but now we have some who want to call it “media bias.” That’s fine with me, but understand this.

“Media bias” may have just saved America .

And from Washington Post again, via Malkin, a lot of links at the original:

Perhaps it was the announcement that NBC News is coming out with a DVD titled “Yes We Can: The Barack Obama Story.” Or that ABC and USA Today are rushing out a book on the election. Or that HBO has snapped up a documentary on Obama’s campaign.

Perhaps it was the Newsweek commemorative issue — “Obama’s American Dream” — filled with so many iconic images and such stirring prose that it could have been campaign literature. Or the Time cover depicting Obama as FDR, complete with jaunty cigarette holder.

Are the media capable of merchandizing the moment, packaging a president-elect for profit? Yes, they are.

All this bias has taken its toll… Even the Internet is more trusted than traditional media now! Same link has link to Time magazine admitting that 2008’s election media coverage was the most biased yet.

Obamedia Cartoons (More Than 50)

November 3, 08

Lots and lots of cartoons, links and examples illustrating the worship the mainstream media pours unto Obama at Obamedia Loves Obama… And I Mean Red Hot, Steaming Wet Lurve!!!.

Perfect timing, since the media is definitely going to skew the results of tomorrow’s US Presidential Election whatever the outcome (i.e. Glorious Obama demolishes McCain, or cheating McCain steals the election from Obama).

Obamedia Loves Obama… And I Mean Red Hot, Steaming Wet Lurve!!!

July 24, 08

From John McCain’s website come two videos. The first is about the liberal media’s obsession with Obama…

Version 1 which is more popular by far:

Version 2:

And the second is about Obama’s shallowness of celebrity:

Also being covered by Michelle Malkin and Moonbattery. Chris Matthews’ leg reference in depth here.

What, don’t think it’s true?

The Washington Posts has to admit it.

Half of the people already realize it:

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey found that 49% of voters believe most reporters will try to help the Democrat with their coverage, up from 44% a month ago.

Just 14% believe most reporters will try to help McCain win…. Just 24% believe that most reporters will try to offer unbiased coverage.

Democrats — 37% say most reporters try to offer unbiased coverage of the campaign. 27% believe most reporters are trying to help Obama. 21% in Obama’s party think reporters are trying to help the Republican candidate.

Republicans – 78% believe reporters are trying to help Obama. 10% see most offering unbiased coverage.

Unaffiliated voters – 50% see a pro-Obama bias, 21% see unbiased coverage. Just 12% believe the reporters are trying to help McCain.

45% say that most reporters would hide information if it hurt the candidate they wanted to win. Just 30% disagree and 25% are not sure.

50% of voters believe most reporters want to make the economy seem worse than it is. A plurality believes that the media has also tried to make the war in Iraq appear worse that it really is.

30% of voters believe having a friendly reporter is more valuable than raising a lot of campaign contributions.. Twenty-nine percent (29%) believe contributions are more important and 40% are not sure.

From Commentary Magazine:

One gets to sense that journalists not only like Mr. Obama; they are in awe of him. They want to impress him and please him and are afraid of being rebuked by him… All of this helps explain why Americans’ distrust in the media hit a new high in 2012, with 60 percent saying they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.

More confirmation here.

This is concurrent with the New York Times running Obama’s feature but refusing McCain’s rebuttal.

And then there’s this expose from Investor’s Business Daily:

An analysis of federal records shows that the amount of money journalists contributed so far this election cycle favors Democrats by a 15:1 ratio over Republicans, with $225,563 going to Democrats, only $16,298 to Republicans .

Two-hundred thirty-five journalists donated to Democrats, just 20 gave to Republicans — a margin greater than 10-to-1. An even greater disparity, 20-to-1, exists between the number of journalists who donated to Barack Obama and John McCain.

Searches for other newsroom categories (reporters, correspondents, news editors, anchors, newspaper editors and publishers) produces 311 donors to Democrats to 30 donors to Republicans, a ratio of just over 10-to-1. In terms of money, $279,266 went to Dems, $20,709 to Republicans, a 14-to-1 ratio.

What is truly remarkable about the list is that, discounting contributions to Paul and Rudy Giuliani, who was a favorite son for many folks in the media, the totals look like this: $315,533 to Democrats, $3,150 to Republicans (four individuals who donated to McCain).

Let me repeat: $315,533 to Democrats, $3,150 to Republicans — a ratio of 100-to-1. No bias there.

I’m suuuuuuuuuuure this will not in any way affect their journalistic neutrality, objectivity and integrity.

And this on a tip from hutchrun, from Harold Evans, former editor of the Times of London and the Sunday Times:

Researchers at the Project for Excellence in Journalism report that in the six weeks since the Republican convention, McCain, once the darling of the media, got four times as many negative stories as positive ones. Meanwhile, Obama got twice as many positive stories as McCain. The website Politico has also acknowledged that it had loaded the dice against McCain: 100 stories were more favourable to Obama than McCain; just 69 were the opposite.

And also these cases of reporters drooling over Obama at the gym, swooning over his lack of sweat, ogling their eyes out, watching him body surf and just plain freaking out to touch him.

And if a network doesn’t fall heads-over-heels for Obama… Then they are immediately booted from Obama’s plane:

Journalists from three major newspapers that endorsed John McCain have been booted from Barack Obama’s campaign plane for the final leg of the presidential race.

The Washington Times reported Friday that it was notified of the Obama campaign’s decision Thursday evening — even though the paper has covered Obama from the start.

Executive Editor John Solomon told FOXNews.com that the Obama campaign said it didn’t have enough seats on the plane, but “I don’t think the explanation makes sense to us.”

“We’ve been traveling since 2007 with him. … We’re a relevant newspaper — every day we break news,” Solomon said. “And to suddenly be kicked off the plane for people who haven’t covered it as aggressively or thoroughly as we are … it sort of feels unfair.”

And they must be racist too. Video at Moonbattery.

All this bias has taken its toll… Even the Internet is more trusted than traditional media now!

But what can we hapless citizenry do, but vote against the brainwashing zombification… And mock!
