All the News That Fits to Our Ideological Agenda


Via Matt Drudge, the NYT has rejected an editorial by John McCain in response to an editorial Barry Obama wrote about his position on Iraq less than a week ago. I'm personally flabbergasted. I can't believe the Times would risk its reputation of objectivity and even handedness. If they keep this up they might become known as left wing advocates posing as journalists. People might even believe that the last Republican they endorsed for President was Dwight Eisenhower.

On the other hand, I was surprised that the Iraq war was still going on. I never see anything about it in the Times anymore. I wonder why they don't want to talk about it anymore unless they get an editorial by Barry Obama('s staff)? A curious thought to ponder. They couldn't write enough about it in 2005. Are there no more Jack Murtha quotes comparing our soldiers to the imaginary Mongols John Kerry spoke of while he was in the SDS? I'd better stop there, if we delve into that, its enough for two or three more posts. Ah, you wacky libs. You're like the gift that keeps giving, or maybe the guy who keeps kicking you in the junk and taking your wallet.

Back to the point, I'm sure its just a matter of time before the Times corrects this error and regains its impeccable journalistic integrity. Otherwise people are going to begin to think they're just a mouth piece for the Democrat Party and that the NYT's whole reason for existence is to push a liberal agenda, not to report "all the news that's fit to print". But that's just crazy, right?

Snap, AM! I just posted about this very subject, then came here, and lo and behold :)

I mean, look at the poll -- (and Rasmussen is pretty much THE respected pollsters) -- nearly 50 PERCENT of people believe the press is biased toward Obama.

Yeah, the main stream press isn't even bothering to hide it anymore. From Chris Matthews saying Obama "sends a tingle up his leg" to the New York Times running an editorial by Obama but refusing McCain's, they're making it so obvious now. That's probably why as you said, 50% of Americans have noticed it.

Instapundit seems to be on a kind of vendetta against Obama, though -- which kind of surprises me, because he's usually pretty even-handed.

I'm thinking that if Obama ticks even HIM off, he just might be in trouble.

Well, Obama's an empty suit, and a lot of us are getting sick of the MSM portraying him as the smartest politician the world has ever seen, personally, I'm not necessarily angered by it as much as I'm just puzzled. Even liberals I meet/know are just completely enthralled by him. Last night I was talking to a guy who swore to me that Obama lowered the unemployment rate in Michigan by 5% when he was in the Senate there. I couldn't point out his mistake because I was laughing too hard. The libs don't even know who he is, they've just been brainwashed.
