    Default Liberal media bias is soooo obvious

    What does that have to do with Bias. I wonder why some of these guys actually show up on those shows. It isn't who is there, but how they are questionned. Heck, Hannity has liberals on his show. I don't understand why they go on there either.

    I am glad you posted this though. I had a queston I forgot to ask this morning.

    I watched the tea partiers get hammered for some of their participants who were uncivil, both in speech and their signs. I saw Palin get hammered for the target thing. We need to be more civil was what the media was pounding into us. Let's say Fox news wasn't beating those folks up, just CNN, CNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, et. al.

    Now I see some of the elements in the Union marches doing the same stuff. I saw a target (cross hairs) on Walker. Called Hitler. Potty mouth speech. I see Fox calling attention to the stuff, but not CNN, CNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, et. al.

    Would you and those others who lean to the progressive side agree with me that all those folks see everything from one side.

    This is real easy for me to explain. The Union folks are simply passionate about their just cause.

    Baggers on the other hand are ignorant and emotional.

    Hope that clears things up.

    Serously though the next yahoo on any side of any issue who brings a picture of Hitler to a rally should be pelted with garbage.

    It does. I don't know why I can't figure this stuff out on my own. Seems so simple when it is explained to me.

    To compare someone to Hitler, I think they need to at least be accused of actual genocide. Hitler is so radioactive that even talking about his politics should be verbotten.

    I have another theory on what is going on with the media...

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dan-ke...b_1303783.html

    Kudos to David Carr of the New York Times for shining a light on an issue that doesn't attract nearly the attention that it should: the Obama administration's abuse of the Espionage Act, which in turn has led to a virtual war on journalism and free expression.

    As Carr notes, the Espionage Act, approved in 1917 during the hysteria of World War I, was used three times before President Obama took office in 2009 -- and six times during his presidency.

    [...]

    Obama targets journalists
    Guest Post: His administration's war on whistleblowers is also an assault on reporters


    [...]
    While the Bush administration treated whistleblowers unmercifully, the Obama administration has been far worse. It is actually prosecuting them, and doing so under the Espionage Act — one of the most serious charges that can be leveled against an American. The Espionage Act is an archaic World War I-era law meant to go after spies, not whistleblowers. Strangely, using it to target the media and sources is the brainchild of neo-conservative Gabriel Schoenfeld, who would have sources who disclose information to reporters, journalists who then write about it for newspapers, the newspapers that publish the information and the publisher itself all be held criminally liable.

    [...]

    Everyone wants to know why Obama, with his pledge to “protect whistleblowers,” would do this. After all, Obama’s transition agenda recognized that “[o]ften the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled.” That’s not just a broken promise, it’s a complete reversal.

    [...]

    President Obama Has Turned Journalists into Criminals

    If by “change” President Obama meant criminalizing journalism in the United States, then he’s succeeded.

    Why should you care? The investigative journalism that Obama has silenced could have exposed more corruption in the U.S. government, military, banking industry; corruption that has caused anguish to numerous Americans. The reports that will never be heard, read, or seen on TV may have led to positive change.

    The Obama administration is suffocating investigative journalism at an alarming rate through the abuse of the Espionage Act of 1917, an act more prone to be used to protect government secrecy than national security. Before Obama, the act had been used only three times total since 1917. The current administration has used it six times to go after whistleblowers and the journalists who protect and reveal their information.

    President Obama was bold enough to use the Espionage Act to subpoena New York Times journalist James Risen in an attempt to force him to ‘give up’ information on a CIA whistleblower. Risen accused the administration of trying to silence journalists and refused to acquiesce stating,

    “Can you have a democracy without aggressive investigative journalism? I don’t believe you can, and that’s why I’m fighting.”

    Risen predicted Obama’s attack against him would have an unprecedented chilling effect on mainstream investigative journalism in the US. He was right.

    You won't get much disagreement from the left on this issue. The number of prosecutions under the Espionage Act has been ridiculous.

    That's why most of the criticisms you see are from the left: Salon, NY Times, Huffington Post, Daily Kos, etc.

    Well, this settles it. A single Sunday Morning's slate of guests looks pretty conservative. So much for the tired notion that there's any liberal bias in the MSM.

    LOL. So, Cali, you and the rest of the left are willing to overlook this fact and the many other violations on civil liberties? For example:

    Liberals let Obama get away with unconstitutional actions

    Obama, Romney Still Silent On Civil Liberties In Last Debate

    http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/...-obama/262861/

    New Justice Department Documents Show Huge Increase in Warrantless Electronic Surveillance

    Y'all are willing to just sweep all of that under the rug based on the simple fact that Obama is a Liberal and vote for him anyway? What happened to all the good ole' Liberals I use to know?... Somehow does the fact that Obama is one of your own make it all better?







    I miss the good ole' liberals of the Bush Jr. era. Now it seems the only issues that Liberals care about are ones like...



    Ironically, the Liberals get all bent out of shape when someone mentions the idea of legalizing prostitution which would give women even more choices on what to do with their bodies. You liberals are funny people. Of course, so are the overly religious republicans and tea partiers.

    I think these guys try to do a good job of studying media coverage for quality, ideological leans and biases. I try to read a wide variety from different sides of the spectrum, and I think these charts they produce are pretty much right on. I also like the charts that plot the individual shows on each of the major networks.

    Agreed. I'd like to see them add the FoxBusiness shows on there. Good old Lou Dobbs would find a nice home down there in nonsense corner with Hannity. Example: his comment that Mitt Romney's mild rebuke of Trump constituted "treason."

    That’s going to piss some off that mainstream outlets are most neutral. One thing I really tire of when it comes to complaints about liberal bias is people equating WaPo, NPR of the NY Times to Breitbart or Rush Limbaugh.

    Lou Dobbs being case in point. No honest person in the media who took HS history would equate Mitt Romney's comments about Trump from a few weeks ago with "treason." BS like that isn't just something that leans a little to the right like "The Washington Times." It's willfully distorting and dishonest in the hope of persuading a few nitwits who have never read the Constitution to give their full loyalty to Trump the way it's done in non-free authoritarian countries.

    Trump isn’t following his doctor’s advice to lose weight and eat better!!

    Pretty sure about 98% of all people don’t lose weight or eat better after the doctor tells them to do that.

    Not to go all Uncle Ted but wasn’t Obama still secretly smoking as president? I missed the articles slamming him for that.

    Trump isn’t 98 percent of people so it’s newsworthy. His health is news.

    As for Obama smoking. How would you know that if the media didn’t report it?
