    They also have to provide a story and what is a bigger story Hilliary vs Obama or McCain. Right now it is Hilliary vs Obama. They still have to bring in the viewers.

    Oh, so it sounds like you share at least in part some of my cynicism towards media. In other words, it sounds like you agree the networks will do what they can "to bring in the viewers"--even if that means focusing on the trivial and superficial, and plots that involve pitting one side against the other (rather than any sense that we belong to one nation).

    I've noticed in recent days, a lot of people are talking about a significant rise in food prices globally. One might think the networks would comment on this and its relationship to the Presidential race since it affects us all. But, apparently not.

    ban - I am no Hagee fan but your suggestion that McCain's relationship to him even remotely approximates Obama's to Wright, his spiritual mentor whom he had trouble disassociating himself from and listened to for over two decades, makes you look silly.

    Really? Was Obama ever endorsed? Was McCain endorsed? Are both "spiritual advisors?" Actually, no to that question, as Wright is no longer Obama's spiritual advisor. Did Obama have the trouble dissociating himself, or did the people interested in keeping this story alive have the trouble?

    Still looking "silly" to you? If so, then you ain't gettin' it.

    Consider the possibility that what we seen on "the news" is not solely determined (or maybe not at all) by the political points of view of the reporters involved.

    The Liberal Media bias is no myth as so eloquently parodied by SNL's skit of the Obasma/Clinton debates.

    And just because some of the media is finally doing its job and exposing the RADICAL beliefs of those associating with Obama after knowing about these associations for quite sometime, is hardly evidence that no bias exists.

    As to McCain, I have full confidence in their (the liberal media) ability to not only find every skeletan in his closet but to fabricate one at the 11th hour as has been their habit.

    So Obama no longer considers Wright his spiritual advisor so the past two decades doesn't count anymore? How convenient. Was Hagee McCain's spiritual advisor? You tell me. Yes, Obama did have trouble distancing himself from Wright or he would have done the smart thing and done it early on. Yes, you do look silly beating your drum on this one. Political pressure lotivated Obama's recent move. Even Rev. W could tell you that.

    Obama appointed Wright to the position of Official Spiritual Advisor to the campaign, knowing full well Wright's odious positions and only began to distance himself from Wright AFTER Wright's positions became known to the public and as he began losing support.

    In this regard Wright is correct that Obama is just being another "politician".

    It is you that looks silly here ban when you try to obfuscate the relationship between the two.

    Any attempt at being unbiased is labeled as liberal in America.

    Take a look at this report about talk radio.

    http://www.americanprogress.org/issu...talk_radio.pdf

    This report shows-

    "As this report will document in detail, conservative talk radio undeniably dominates the format:

    Our analysis in the spring of 2007 of the 257 news/talk stations owned by the top five commercial station owners reveals that 91 percent of the total weekday talk radio programming is conservative, and 9 percent is progressive.

    Each weekday, 2,570 hours and 15 minutes of conservative talk are broadcast on these stations compared to 254 hours of progressive talk?10 times as much conservative talk as progressive talk.

    A separate analysis of all of the news/talk stations in the top 10 radio markets reveals that 76 percent of the programming in these markets is conservative and 24 percent is progressive, although programming is more balanced in markets such as New York and Chicago.

    92 percent of these stations (236 stations out of 257) do not broadcast a single minute of progressive talk radio programming."


    This shows a very clear bias against liberal (progressive) viewpoints.
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.
