I'm waiting for CNN, CBS, NBC and ABC to do a news piece on the subject.

USA Today has done a first story on the Obama Bill Ayers Connection. The link and part of the story is below.

Why would Barack Hussein Obama "be friends with someone who bombed the Capitol and is proud of it?"
YOU DECIDE FOR YOURSELF...

Here's the Ad Barack Hussein Obama, his Far-Left Political Handlers and the Democrat Party Leadership do not want America to see.

Obama dogged by links to 1960s radical

Obama dogged by links to 1960s radical - USATODAY.com

CHICAGO Conservatives are stepping up efforts to turn 1960s radical Bill Ayers into a political liability for Barack Obama.
This spring, Obama's links to Ayers briefly became a campaign controversy. Now American Issues Project is spending $2.8 million to air a TV ad highlighting links between Obama and Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground Organization, which opposed the Vietnam War and was responsible for several bombings.

Obama released a rebuttal TV ad Monday. "With all our problems, why is John McCain talking about the '60s, trying to link Barack Obama to radical Bill Ayers?" a narrator asks.

A movie, Hype: The Obama Effect, was first shown Sunday in Denver. It was made by Citizens United, another conservative group, and explores the Ayers-Obama connection and questions whether Obama can unite the country.

Documents released today by the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) will be scrutinized for clues to the relationship.

Default It's starts the questions on both sides of the issue.

The USA TODAY story is fair... It's starts the questions on both sides of the issue.

What is too bad is that the Main stream media will never publish this story because they do not want to tell the truth about Obama the great? What ever happened to all the real reporters? Dead and gone or independent and on the web like Drudge!

Yeah, I haven't heard a thing about this on talk radio, on cable news or the internet, oh wait, that isn't the mainstream media that fits into the false liberal media myth.

The "false liberal media myth?"
Lol.
89% of those in the media polled voted for Clinton in 1992.

Before the 1992 elections, when G.H.W. Bush was still president, 80% of the economic news was negative; after Clinton won, it was 80% positive... the same economy!

Figures released showed a GDP growth of 3.3% for the 2nd quarter of 2008... how much has the media covered this?

How much influence has any of that had on national politics? And talk radio, the internet and cable news aren't part of the mainstream media? Talk radio hosts are right wingers 9 out of 10 times. You're using figures that are 16 years old. Fail.
