I wonder how many here know that the House turned the Obama proposed budget with a vote of 414 - 0 and then just lately the Senate did the same thing by a vote of 99 - 0. I am sure that some failed to know about this humiliating defeat because they get their info about things like this from the TV networks and none of them reported on it, other than a slight mention on the Today show both times by the person reading off the teleprompter. Very brief mentions both times.

The networks have not been a reliable source for over 30 years now.

The lack of broadcast effort re O's big defeatby the media is like announcing a baseball game and ignoring the strikes.

Not reporting something like that is the same as telling a lie when you are a part of the 4th Estate but then they do lean very heavily to the left.
