    I guess the media has gone from bias to I don't know what. Is it adulation? Is it a king-subject relationship?

    It is pretty amazing when one thinks about it.

    That is ridiculous! The only time any American should bow is when they are bowing to God!

    Yeah, well, the "State Run Media" thinks the Obama is God!!

    I defy anyone but the most far left radicals to tell me eye to eye this is what they want for America!!

    I feel bad for a couple off lefty's here because they seem relatively intelligent.
    Yet the are in the position of defending this KLOWN and his circus!!

    Never in my lifetime can I recall seeing such disgusting fawning and pandering to a President as the mainstream media gives this one, along with such a blind willingness to overlook his faults and not delve deeper into the things in his past he's covered up and kept hidden. Such as the transcripts of his grades, who paid for his college, etc. I didn't see the Brian Williams special last night but bits and pieces of it were on this morning's news

    Such a piece belongs on Oprah or the Oxygen channel or some other dumbed down show made to appeal to the lowest common denominator. To air this on prime time says a lot about what a nation of MORONs we've become. In the one snippet I saw on the news this a.m., Obongo was STILL reading off a teleprompter! I can't believe I ever thought the man was a good speaker.

    What do you think?

    Starch, the company that surveys newsprint consumption divides readership into three categories; heavy, moderate and light readers. Heavy users are now below 15% and of that 15%, 93% are over 60 years of age! I don't know of any big advertising spenders that target the over 60.

    Adding to thier problems are the increasing cost of everything from cost of paper to labor and so it isn't any wonder why they are going belly up all across the globe.

    Newspaper's attempt to stay afloat is by promoting their on-line paper. Problem is that they already have a lot of competition from various websites for local content and news. The printed daily paper will be a thing of the past over the next 5-10 years.

    You know, I never understood why anybody thought he was a good speaker. I just think about all the crap Bush got about being a poor speaker. Obama is write up there, probably worse because he can't speak without the telepromter.

    I guess when he was referred to as such a mesmerizing speaker early in his campaigning I was willing to believe there was some reason he was able to garner support. As I remember thinking since I disliked his politics and platform and rarely watched him except unavoidable snippets on the news he must've given a few stirring speeches that I missed'

    On an unrelated note, reading the older posts on this thread reminded me backpasture has been in hiding for awhile. I'm surprised he didn't come out of lurkdom to help Jeff champion King Shabazz.

    I believe that it was Backpasture that was banned several months ago.

    Here is an article that sort of speaks to bias. It actuall illustrates that the media doesn't call him on this.

    This article example is about the administrations use of the term jobs "saved or created."

    A worthwhile read:

    Here is a pretty good article that illustrates the blanket and reflexive bias of the MSM and democrats as well
