    The problem is that all media is biased. The other news channels aren't "Fair and balanced" either, that's why so many people go to Fox News is because they don't agree with one bias so they turn to another. To bash on just one news station is silly because they all suck, Fox just happens to be the ugly red-headed step child in a family of inbred hillbillies.

    Trumped up?

    Are you trying to say that Barry didn't live next door to Bill? Didn't get a sweat heart deal on his house and some land from Bill? Didn't work for years with Bill? Didn't start his political career in Bill's living room?

    Are you trying to say Barry didn't attend Jeremiah's church for 20 years? Are you trying to say that Jeremiah isn't a racist? Are you trying to say that Jeremiah didn't preach hatred of America to Barry for 20 years?

    I'll leave the rest of your crap for others to tear down.... obviously you have either been living under a rock for the past 4 years, or you have a serious cool aid addiction.

    Trumped up.

    The question wasn't whether they were objective. It was whether they were "main stream" or not.

    If objectivity defined "main stream", then abc, nbc, cbs, cnn, the ny times, washington post and whole host of others wouldn't make the cut.

    Hey, I just report the facts. You decide whether this is considered to be mainstream. IMHO, it reads like a blog.

    Yeah you're relying completely on campaign ads for your knowledge. I think you mean he got a sweet deal, not a "sweat" deal. And no, that is completely and 100% false. It is absolutely nothing but lies. He "worked" with Bill, you mean he was briefly on the same board involved in education grants, where at the time Bill was described as a "toothless ex radical and distinguished professor OF EDUCATION." Wow that sounds like they were plotting all kinds of scary things. And again, no his career did not start in Bill's living room, once again obvious misinformation from political ads. Bill and Obama briefly met at a dinner party, in a home which WAS NOT Bill's, with several other prominent Democratic political leaders including standing senators and famous Rabbi's. The truth is that Obama started his political campaign in Chicago and if he bound to meet Bill Ayers eventually. However even regardless of Obama meeting Ayers...who cares? Everything Bill Ayers did that could be considered horrible was done when Obama was 8 years old. Are you actually trying to make the connection that because Obama met Bill Ayers a few times and they "knew" of each other that Obama had adopted the same radical ideas Bill Ayers had when he was 8 years old? No, that's completely ignorant and its an obvious guilty by association tactic used time and time again by Fox news.

    Are you trying to say Barry didn't attend Jeremiah's church for 20 years? Are you trying to say that Jeremiah isn't a racist? Are you trying to say that Jeremiah didn't preach hatred of America to Barry for 20 years?
    If you even understood the slightest, tiniest bit of history of how blacks have been treated in this country for the last 200 years then you would understand that black people, especially a preacher has every right in the world to be furious with white people. The reality is that the campaign add took the worst two minutes from those 20 years and tried to make it look like those sermons were a regular thing. Was Obama ever shown to be present at any of these sermons? No. Has he ever showed even the slightest bit of racism towards white people? No. Has he condemned Wright for his racist remarks and radical comments? Yes. Has he left the church to show that he is not in favor of such comments? Yes. Once again, what are you trying to show? That somehow by attending this church he's adopted a racist attitude towards white people? Has Obama ever said anything or done anything that would have shown otherwise that he indeed was racist? No.

    I'll leave the rest of your crap for others to tear down.... obviously you have either been living under a rock for the past 4 years, or you have a serious cool aid addiction.
    No you won't leave the rest of my "crap" for other people to finish. You'll just show how lazy you are. The truth is that Fox news and Republican campaign strategists are in the business of SMEARING their opponents. They won't try to logically and soundly argue policies, credentials and ideas. Well guess what happened this time with those tactics? They lost.

    To me it is common sense.

    Anyhow, this caught my attention:

    No, this does not give him credibility. In this country, I am not my forefathers, and they are not me either. We are what we make ourselves, judged by man and judged by God with what we do with our time. I am not judged by the lives of those who came before me. I spend my days filling my mind with our country's history, and this does little to give me comfortability in those who wish to continue being destructive rather than reflective. Furthermore, I do not like preachers who focus their attention towards enflaming hatred rather than alleviating it.

    Does anyone actually care about Wright? Honestly. Trying to give a damn. I just can't do it.

    Why do you hate America?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Yeah this is my point. You don't know the history what so ever. You think that it all ended with slavery, but it didn't. Slavery ended, then they were share croppers. Then there were jim crow laws, then there was blatant outright racism, then there was segregation, the civil rights era, more racism under affirmative action. A black man has only truly been open to as much opportunity as a white man in this country in the last 30 years.
