    Media Bias?

    I think all the major networks are biased and trying to serve thier viewers knowing they can't be everything to everyone.

    Network news still has many more viewers than Cable News largely because they are available to more households.

    Among Cable News, MSNBC nor CNN comes close to Fox News in total viewers. And, Fox News has no where near the total number of viewers of ABC, NBC or CBS.

    I've grown tired of all the news since I can no longer get it straight, they all have to promote thier own political agandas. So now, when I turn the boob toob on, I do what many boobs do, watch ESPN for my news and get my other news from the internet!

    P S No one can spin a story like Bill O'Reilly. I often wondered if he knows the subject being discussed.

    Why would they need to cover it? Can't they just get the transcript from the guy running the teleprompter?

    Last I saw, conservatives were defending their behavior at town hall meetings by claiming that they are not acting any differently than liberals have in the past.

    Is the New Hampshire townhall the one where he claimed surgeons are paid "30,40,sometimes 50 thousand dollars" to amputate diabetic feet? That seems a little high since last I checked medicare pays me somewhere around 500 bucks and that price includes 3 months of postoperative care. I wish somebody would call him on that lie.

    I've tried to be open minded but this is too much... blaming the docs for the high cost of medicine

    Why is it so important for all networks to give Obongo's town hall meetings even more media coverage? He's already been on prime time several times. It probably makes ratings drop to air his speeches in their entirety.

    I will grant you that of our past presidents, I never thought Bush was a very engaging speaker. But at least he could answer questions off the cuff and at least he sounded the same whether reading from a speech or answering a question. But, I can't believe I ever thought Obongo was a good speaker. His first speech coach must've taught him a staccato pace with an occasional pregnant pause was how to give a speech. Or maybe the pregnant pause is while he's moving his lips to read the teleprompter. He sounds moar like a TV evangalist than the media whore that he is. Take him off script and he sounds like a buffoon. I don't see why any network needed to cover more than one of his Obongo-care speeches. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

    I'm afraid it's true. In the 'burgh here, we had a WWII vet detained by police for refusing to take his anti-Iraq war poster and tshirt to the "free speech zone", when W rolled through town.

    As for media bias, it seems now the media is hounding Obama regarding a deal he cut with Pharma. (or accepted, not sure there's much difference)

    Perhaps you've been getting ripped off. I checked this hospital management site because I've had a hospital procedure in Oregon in 1990 which cost $3000.00 for a 2" skin graft and it would appear the man also got his figures from the guys who should know. They actually claim costs can go to $60,000 and nonsurgical treatment can run costs to $27,000. Please check this site out...you are being seriously under paid or something.
