    The liberal media seems to have an orgasmic tone when talking about or mentioning the Almighty obamas name. I even bet the liberal reporters have a binder of obama pictures instead of playboy/playgirl mags for late night adventures....

    Hats off to Politix for atleast publishing Mr Wehner findings. I never thought I would see the day a liberal base blog that will admit on a few negatives about Obama and the democrat party. Now if you could get your liberal readers to accept the truth on how bias the left is I could show a little respect to some. We will turn on MSNBC just to get a big laugh out of these clowns on there. I have never seen so many hypocrites and flat out liars on one news station in my life. Don't even act like Fox is that bias for the GOP either,its not even close. They would slam Bush when he deserved it, but MSNBC actually worships Obama like a God. If any conservatives out there has never watched Mathews,Maedow,Ed and the middleeastern dude with an english accent, please turn it on and just watch it atleast until you have to puke.

    The transitive property: "the unprecedented swooning and cheerleading by the press for Barack Obama," as opposed, of course, to the "the unprecedented swooning and cheerleading by [Karl Rove and Fox News] for Mitt Romney,"

    FOX vs. NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, MSDNC, CNN, NY Times, etc... I'm glad Fox and the internet exists. If not, Obama's regime would get not get any scrutiny.

    Both liberal and conservative media, and Fox, are running on very skinny budgets.

    A lot of the news you see is really another media outlet's story being reported on.

    That means that misinformation spreads quickly, and then is corrected slowly.

    Listen for things like," The New York Times is reporting...", or "Stories are coming out of...", and stuff like that.

    Correct. No one digs in or tries to report. But you have to admit- they dig in and report what they choose. For example- 2008- when Palin was announced as VP candidate- swarms of reporters dove into Alaska to look things up. If the President ever faced the same unbiased scrutiny from ABC NBC CBS CNN NPR MSNBC PBS ETC ETC. He would have never made it out of Illinois senate.

    Another example- everyone knows Toe Tapper Vitter. But THIS WEEK, a Democrat senator who is screwing underage hookers, while traveling on our dime- how often have you seen this mentioned on ABC NBC CBS CNN NPR MSNBC ? You won't.

    In Fact CBS had him on for an interview on their Sunday show- they didn't ask a question about it. Not One.

    @martydotcom Guess you can't read. Did you see online sources even mentioned? You do know the difference in saturation of network news over online news, right?

    Anyway, if you do google him. You end up with Fox, ABC then the LA times stories. Then online publications.

    Maybe the NY times..... they would do 57 days straight front page news on Menendez as they did with Abu Ghraib ?

    Thank you. You are first I know of to admit the bias. Either that or you admitted fox isn't. It's one or the other.

    I agree. Problem is, Fox is one network, among dozens on the other side. Very lopsided.

    Fox, Hannity, and O'Reilly are all Fox, so thats kinda double dipping.

    Limbaugh, on the other hand, is not a journalist. He is Conservative talk show host. He's not "biased," hes doing his job of being "Conservative." Calling Limbaugh "biased toward Conservatism" is like calling a Priest "biased toward Christianity."

    The difference is that Hannity, O'Reilly,and Limbaugh are commentators.........They don't deliver the news and don't claim to..........

    Do you think? It is so far Left it makes the centrist FoxNews seem right wing. The author is right, Chris Matthews and the rest of the Liberal Left media wet their pants just thinking about Obama. It is so bad that there is little to no "news" on the MSM channels these days. Any real news is ignored because any real problems will potentially reflect poorly on their idol.

    I watch CBS, NBC & Fox News Sunday, with Chris Wallace. That's the only Fox news I watch. There IS a definite bias towards the Democratic left. Limbaugh is an entertainer, and so are O'Reilly & Company. I wouldn't go to either one of those for news. Chris Wallace asks tough questions of EVERYONE on his program. I don't notice the rest of the News Media doing the same. The clown that took over for Tim Russert is the worst one of the bunch. Tim Russert had integrity. I understand he was an attorney as well as a newsman. I really respected him because he was tough WITH EVERYONE. He also dealt IN FACTS, not cheap emotionalism and hysteria. The present clown at Meet the Press is apparently even exempt from current laws and grills conservative and NRA executives as he if were some prosecuting attorney going after some Charlie Manson type.

    Could it also be that if the news isn't what you want to hear, then it is "slanted," or "biased?" So FAUX tells its audience what it wants to hear and MSNBC tells it audience what it wants to hear. Then you have those networks that try to stay a little more moderate and balanced. That's why I sample from various sources, but CNN is my go to network.

    CNN is anti 2nd amendment, pro-Obama, pro homosexual, and they employ racists like Soledad O' Brien. It's a very liberal network.

    I've noticed this particularly when they interview anyone from the NRA. They act as if the NRA were responsible for criminal acts, and they "interview" them as if they were Interrogators at Guantanamo Bay trying to get information out of an enemy combatant. The only thing missing is the loud music, and the water-boarding.

    Worse than ever, perhaps, certainly more blatant recently. The MSNBC manipulation was a crime and they should be ashamed, they won't and will continue to do it simply because most of the public, who only get one side of the news, will absolutely believe the manipulations and will continue to even after they are shown for the lie they are. Some people are just so uninformed and so partisan that they will believe any lie simply because they are now so disposed to thinking the worst of anyone who does not follow the script presented by the left.

    Most of my media does not have a liberal bias. I have removed most of the liberal bias from my reading list. Politix remains because it affords me the opportunity to be heard.

    @OhWiseOne Unfortunately, some people take advantage of the commentary section here by posting conspiracy theory based rants, instead of informed, intelligent commentary.

    @thatgirl - Just as they have the freedom to display their foolishness, we have the freedom to laugh at it and taunt it (until the Politix hall monitor catches us).

    Obama causes Chrissy Matthews to get a tingle up his leg and causes Al Roker to poop his oversized pants. What's next? Randy Maddow sporting a full erection?

    Re-using a tired term here......follow the money! If you owned a business and sold lies and the people bought those lies and raved to others how they got a great deal on those lies.......would you then tell them the truth?

    Case in point. California has a rodeo circuit. Big state, Lots of competition for the entertainment dollar. Rodeos are attended sparsely. Enter the Latino immigrants. Their brand of Rodeo is not so humane compared to the RCAA. The tripped running horses and it became known that most those horses suffered broken legs or necks. Latinos shrugged. So what? They were glue factory horses anyhow. Enter the Media. Within weeks of the first reporting by a local media at a local rodeo it went statewide and then national. The outrage was enormous. California legislature was on the job and immediately banned tripping of horses. The Latinos immediately sued for racism. Destroying their culture one horse at a time. The entire thing got blown up so big by the media that by the time the dust cleared every white person in California was racist against Mexicans and ever Mexican was a horse killer. And the media never got so much mileage out of a rodeo in the history of America. Everyone else suffered at the hands of the media. REGARDLESS of which side you were on.

    @stepped_in_it To my way of thinking there should be 4 absolutes in life. 1.) Taxes 2,) Death 3,) Re-elect Nobody 4.) Follow the money, always follow the money.

    I have never been able to figure out what the "right" means by liberal media bias. I've really tried to figure out what it is they think is liberal and as far as I can figure out it's a moving target. I know who the "right wing" is and what it is because they self identify and have a definate doctrine and dogma. Liberals? Well...what liberals? I've seen/heard so few people able to define it, or describe it except to say, "everyone who isn't a right winger" I can't say I know what it is or who actually claims the title except for a very few. For the most part I think the "liberals" are a figment of the "right wing's" imagination, or construction.
