Media Shills for Their Candidate

This isn't particularly surprising, however, it is good to know that people are aware of the blatant media bias. Rasmusen Reports chronicles that people of all stripes recognize that the media is pitching their candidate and not being objective.

"Just 17% of voters nationwide believe that most reporters try to offer unbiased coverage of election campaigns. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that four times as many­ 68%--believe most reporters try to help the candidate that they want to win.

The perception that reporters are advocates rather than observers is held by 82% of Republicans, 56% of Democrats, and 69% of voters not affiliated with either major party. The skepticism about reporters cuts across income, racial, gender, and age barriers."

Boy the Obamabots are out in full farce today!

The majority of the liberal leaning MSM and even more liberal left blogs are shilling for BHO. They don't even try to hide it.

If we actually get any journalistic factual reporting on this guy, it will be a miracle.

Months after Obama himself realized that Rev Wright was too controversial to speak at his announcement of his candidacy, the MSM was still reluctant to focus on Wright. It was only after someone forced the issue by putting the videos out on YouTube that the MSM had to cover the story.

That's funny FOX was just voted the most fair and balanced network by an independent media group. Liberals love to paint FOX till you throw facts at them.

The article is simply relaying the results of a poll - if people are offended by it that's their own issue.
