    Re: Does the media really have a liberal bias?

    All media outlets are biased, most of them have a liberal bias. Fox makes up for it by being conservatively biased enough for any 3 or 4 stations all on its own.

    Re: Does the media really have a liberal bias?

    Ok, the Media is Biased to the Left mostly and here is my four points that he did good in.

    1. He pardoned the Turkey on Thanksgiving.

    2. He did not criticize the Groundhog when it saw its shadow.

    3. He did O.K. during the White House Easter Egg Roll and Hunt.

    4. He handled not being nominated this year for the Nobel Peace with good grace.


    Yep I can think of four things that i can say he did well without straining to much.

    Does the winning of the Nobel Peace Prize mean anything to you?
    Our President has tried and failed thus far with universal health care.
    This is a democracy, the conservatives are still in power, as long as they remain, our nation will not have government funded , even partial, health care for all of its people..
    I'd like to know how Europe and Canada were able to have fair and equitable health care.
    I have lived thru many administrations...the JFK one, Mr Kennedy was not able to do much of anything.., as I recall....
    ..and this means nothing....its the Congress, not the President..
    Sometimes, and right now, I do not think we are ready for a President with the qualities of Obama....maybe another 100 years for our nation to become more civilized and respectful..

    Lily Ledbetter bill
    Secy of State Hillary Clinton
    Stimulus Bill
    Question Time


    That was off the top of my head. Imma go back and see what everyone else said now.




    Edit: Only one person answered and a conservative thought it was a good idea to trash their post. How fun. Also, the person that did answer (I don't count the silly turkey poster), was actually a foreign conservative.

    Re: Does the media really have a liberal bias?
    The idea the media has a liberal bias is a powerful and useful symbol for the right-wing, so it will probably be 'true' in some sense or another as far as that spectrum is concerned.

    However, the media cannot be consistently sensationalist if it has a liberal bias because then it wouldn't be able to sensationalize controversial movements made by liberals. Hence, it cannot have a liberal bias in any significant sense (aka, over time), because it is clear the media is sensationalist.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    The media bias is towards sensationalism.

    First I want to swear on your mother's life that there isn't a single liberal bone on your body, because you just challenged the conservatives to name something good about Obama, but you didn't challenge liberals to anything. Of course your challenge has nothing to do with media bias, but that's beside the point.

    Were I a person who likes to be obtuse like *cough* some posters *cough cough* I would swear there is no liberal bone in my body, there are just bone bones. Then I would either split or make some disparaging remark about the other side and then split.

    Instead I'll admit that I am a moderate social libertarian. For those that need more 'splainin', I have liberal and covservative "bones".

    You have problems understanding or you're paranoid or you're just not that smart. The posts from you that I've seen are usually one liners so it's difficult to judge.

    To your post. I challenged people to see if the media has informed them of at least 4 things Obama has done that are good. If most people can name off 4, then the media has been telling them that Obama has done "good" things enough times for them to remember. This would be a good indicator of liberal bias. Repeating accomplishments of a democrat president would show liberal bias. If the 4 answers were fairly different between posters this would indicate that the media has not only been repetitive, but repetitive on many accomplishments.

    However... if people can't name at least 4 then...
