Cable talking heads accuse broadcast networks of liberal bias -- but a think tank finds that ABC, NBC and CBS were tougher on Barack Obama than on John McCain in recent weeks.
In study, evidence of liberal-bias bias - Los Angeles Times

Yet McCain wants more love from the media.

In the long run most main stream media has a moderate liberal/ Democrat bias. It varies over time. One must look at the long term average.

The European press is making US press look unbiased tho. Good grief, anyone catch Der Spiegel?

"The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, where researchers have tracked network news content for two decades, found that ABC, NBC and CBS were tougher on Obama than on Republican John McCain during the first six weeks of the general-election campaign.

You read it right: tougher on the Democrat."

When I was young, the media REPORTED. You got the NEWS. It was honest, not hyped. If you could go mback to the days of Huntley-Brinkley, Winchell, etc..... maybe we'd have honest news. At that point, even the NY Times REPORTED news.

2 days ago, in political news in the local paper, both obama and McCain had articles written about them of the same size. Obama's was on the top right, McCain's lower left. Anyone looks at the top right first. Plus, the Font for the title for obama was at least 6 pts. larger. That is BIAS.

Everyone knows George Mason University is a haven for left wing extremists. Of course anything they release is going to protect the liberal conspiracy. This is obviously just more evidence of democrats usurping real American soceity.
