On a number of subjects the MSM's don't report major stories, if they put Obama in a negative light.

Here are two of them.
Sends daughter to Mexico with 25 US Secret Service agents. While southern states have a warning not to go to Mexico.
Obama's daughter spends spring break in Mexico (http://www.montrealgazette.com/travel/Obama+daughter+spends+spring+break+Mexico/6323773/story.html - broken link)

Here is another about a guy that wants to kill Sheriff Arpaio for going after Obamas citizenship irregularities.

Why not research how many vacations Bush spent while in office? One year he only spent 6 months working and the other 6 off, taking vacations on the US tax dollars. Life goes on, and people have a life too. Regardless of their job, how many vacations has Romney taken? Did you not see SantiaryNapkin in Puerto Rico lounging? My goodness... you're probably a Republicant voter.

Perhaps it isn't that a particular story will shed a negative light on the President but rather that the story isn't all that newsworthy. Also, it's true that different news stations are either more liberal or conservative. That makes a huge difference as to the stories that are reported and how they're reported. Besides that, if news agencies spent the required amount of time to report all these stories, we'd have nothing but 24/7 news on the television. I tend to limit my TV news viewing to my local network. I'm a much happier person when I don't listen to one side bashing the other.

I don't like government waste and I've seen it come from both political parties. To demonize one over the other is ridiculous, foolish and blind.

No. The OP is right it comes down to partisanship on what gets reported or not. Not whether it’s truly a major story or not.

Okay man you just contradicted yourself majorly.

I have a question. What does any of that have to do with the OPs topic? Since its about MSM not reporting stories showing the President in a negative light.

Relevance?

Can you tell me without ranting what is wrong with being a republican voter exactly?

The OP was talking about 24/7 news.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to be contradictory in my comment. It's just that I read one site that blames the President and another blame the previous Administration for the problems we have today. I guess it really doesn't matter who's sitting in the WH, they're going to be blamed for whatever ails the country. Personally, I feel that decades of really bad decisions are starting to catch up with us, and things are going to get progressively worse from here on out.

However, I didn't think mainstream media meant 24/7 news stations. Those tend to be on the cable channels and a lot of people don't carry cable any longer, due to cutting back on monthly expenses.

As for the OP's links, one is from a police magazine website and, although it may be popular to some, I'm sure not everyone reads it regularly. That's all I was saying.
