    So does this make his media unbiased, or does it make the media look like the propaganda wing of the administration....

    I think this has probably been going on for a while. When Morning Joe's Mika Brzblablabla (too lazy to look up the spelling) makes an outright statement she's working WITH the White House on talking points, it's no surprise one of the Morning Joe regulars is helping write speeches for Obama. The MSNBC team is most likely unofficially of course, part OF the White House PR team, which explains their low ratings across the board. I'm sure we'll find out in the coming years just how much.

    That said, it may be that Fox was part of the Bush administration as well --- though I'm not aware of any direct evidence of that and given the hate for Bush and FN -- it probably would have been outed by now.

    This is blatant though. Are we sure Olbermann isn't really giving Obama hints on who to attack next?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Why is this a surprise to anyone?
    Most Politicians are such lazy buggers, that although they can and willingly do orate anywhere to anyone who may listen, the idea of sitting down and writing a speech is almost beyond their capability.
    Thus nearly everyone of them needs a script/speechwriter.
    Would not surprise me if Obama's speeches did not include instructions on when to 'pause to look at teleprompters' and also when to 'pause to smile at audience'.

    Obama does not write all of his speeches by himself
    no way could this be a common practice [/s]

    you want us to believe dubya bin lyin wrote his speeches by himself? no way. he only chose the pictures
    his dad needed help with his speeches as did ronnie raygun
    but convince us that was not the case ... that all presidents wrote their own speeches without outside help

    Put your thinking cap on. This is not my argument.

    Yeah, but he did a helluva job knocking down the argument you didn't make!
