    You don't really get to claim that left leaning networks contributed to Obama's election while also recognizing their lack of significant ratings among the public. The most popular television news organization (Fox News) absolutely crucified Obama for his "spread the wealth" comments, as well as spending a good amount of time on Ayers & Wright. How those stories went ignored so that viewers could tune into MSNBC to hear about Joe the plumber is as backward a logic as any I've seen. Fox (the most watched "fair and balanced" network) certainly took then candidate Obama to task where other networks didn't... and it still didn't matter.

    and how many times did we hear this rant, zimmer? I remember plenty of "inexperienced" political ads. Look at what you're trying to claim here... that "left-leaning" media outlets got him a better look for the Presidency. How is that possible with an overwhelming amount of Americans (who actually use the television for their news) tuning into the station that didn't dance around their criticism of an inexperienced candidate? It's impossible for Keith Olbermann and the like to suddenly get through to people with such a small viewership. As stated before, stop creating excuses.

    Oh God who cares? Do you really depend on the media's response to a gaffe in order to comprehend how you should take it? Did you do that with Obama's 57 state comment? Or did you press on and think "it was a stupid thing to say" regardless of media weight on the issue? Once more... what media outlets downplayed it? Left-leaning ones? If so... they get no ratings!

    People in this country recognize trends very well... and one person (over the other) has created quite a trend all own their own of appearing ignorant to a variety of topics. Obama decidedly won debates with McCain during their presidential bids, and can at least stay on the topic of the actual question when asked by media figures. Therefore, when a gaffe is made... weight is attributed to it to a degree that people will say to themselves either "that was a slip not common for that individual" or "that's just the usual for an idiot". People didn't need the media to tell them Palin comes off as an idiot in the same way that writers over at SNL didn't need the media to tell them her interviews would make good comedy bits. People, as you may not know, have an incredible ability to come to realizations all on their own... and if the shoe fits....well
    Because...

    FOXNEWS hits a small segment of the electorate; it's the biggest in its market, but look at the numbers in the big picture.
    FOX is one tiny island in oceans awash with journOlists in local and national markets that include TV, and newspapers/internet and radio that were turning a blind eye to Obama's significant shortcomings. Shortcomings that are now obvious to all but the blind.

    McAuliffe: 90 percent of media for Obama
    Host Steve Doocy asked, "What percentage of the mainstream media is in the tank for Barack Obama?

    McAuliffe responded: "Oh, 90 percent. I mean, from day one it is what it is. We’re not complaining. We have to deal with the hand we’re dealt with ... ."

    You do realize you just linked me to someone's personal opinion, yes? That's just Terry McAuliffe's account...a made up "90% of them are" estimate without numbers to support it. I've already linked you to information that establishes only a 29% difference in negative coverage. What do you expect from someone who leads for all but one week during a Presidential run?

    Also... talk radio? You're seriously going to assume that the left side of talk radio had a considerable amount of weight in shaping the perception of American Listeners? Should we compare left talk radio to Rush Limbaugh?

    Did you watch the videos? They are very telling about what was going on in the media.

    There are lots of people who NEVER watch Fox or listen to talk radio. The only news they get is what is fed to them from the left.

    A video that shows misinformed voters is, in no shape or form, indicative of a majority of voters who choose along the same lines. The same can be done for the other side, and it has been done here.

    Did you catch how they attributed things to Palin that Obama said...like their being 57 states?
    Did you watch the third video? Gave you a real taste of the media bias.

    That was a fun get together I'm sure. I actually like Jon Stewart (sorta).

Sure, people have given Sarah Palin tons of ****, but it's typically the media. Who exactly is she firing back at with this? Does she think that listing Obama gaffes is going to somehow strike a blow to the media that gave her crap for her gaffe? She's kind of sinking to a bad and petty level if she is considering a serious run for office.
    You attempt to cover for Obama and his ilk is pathetic to say the least. Trying to say she's firing back at the media is bull****. You know damn well that Obama has the media do his dirty work for him; and you try to place him above it all. No one has put up with more **** than Palin, and in spite of that she regularly kicks the left in the ass so badly that we have thousands Palin thread just on this forum alone. Should heard Obama the other day say he doesn't think about Palin, hahahahah.
