Obama for Homecoming King!

Athletic! Rich! Glamorous! Friends with the cool kids!

Fact: In 1992, 89% of the DC press voted for Clinton. The pro-Clinton bias was bad, but I have never seen anything to equal the kind of unmitigated -- and unembarrassed -- pro-Obama cheerleading coming from the MSM now.

Clearly, NBC is the worst of the lot, but the other two aren't far behind. During the primaries, Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos (and, arguably, CBS' Katie Couric) were pro-Clinton, but now that she's gone, they're completely in the tank for Obama and pulling out all the stops to promote his candidcacy.

This level of blatant bias for one candidate is unequalled in the history of broadcast journalism.

  1. Do you have any actual numbers to support this, aside from anecdotal proof?

    It seems to me that the media is doing a terrific job of ignoring a lot of the massive blunders that John McCain is making on the campaign trail. They would burn Obama to ashes if he made a single misstep like the ones McCain seems to be making every single week (not knowing the difference between Sunni and Shia? Not knowing that the Czechoslovakia doesn't exist anymore? Completely reversing his position on offshore drilling despite the fact that NOBODY believes it's going to provide us any real help?).

    Find some support for this post. Just throwing out these talking points doesn't really further the discussion much.
