Is the media too biased?

I've linked to an article via my headline that addresses this very question, is the media too biased? I give it a resounding YES and here's why...

Cindy McCain was addicted to painkillers since having a surgery, the press told us every single minute detail. Hussein Obama was a frequent cocaine user while in college and on and the press has told us nothing about it.

Hussein Obama goes to a church where the minister (and I use this term loosely since no true man of God would preach the kind of hatred this minister has preached), Jeremiah A Wright, Jr., has spouted from a pulpit how the government and the United States are responsible for AIDS, racism, caused all the drug problems in this country and, well, for being on the grassy knoll in Dallas in 1963, I guess. Um, I couldn't even tell you what religion McCain is since he's so low key about it all.

However, it would seem Hussein Obama doesn't know what religion he is either.In an interview recently, Hussein Obama made a statement regarding " Muslim faith..." and had to be corrected by George Stephanopoulos. Wow! And the coverage it received was, oh, minimal at best. A man admits he's Muslim, a man who is running for POTUS admits he is allied with those who we have been fighting for five years now (not all just the extremists, but these people don't wear t-shirts stating whether or not they are extremists), this man admits he is not who he has been saying he is, and no one blinks an eye? Wow...

Cindy McCain has staunchly stood by her husband, saying precious little, while Michelle Obama says at a rally in February, "I am finally proud to be an American." Really? I was always proud to be an American, no matter who was my President, because I believe with every fiber of my being that I live in the greatest country in the world.

Hussein and Michelle Obama both have political and personal ties to a known terrorist in the form of Bill Ayers and no one blinks? In the linked article, the Hussein Obama camp says that Obama, "...denounced Ayers' crimes committed when Obama was just eight years old." Really? At the tender age of 8 Obama was that aware of the world around him that he was denouncing the actions of a terrorist? He denounces the man's crimes but is still his friend? What kind of morons do they think we are? Oh, wait, people are swallowing this spin, hook, line and sinker.

The most that can be said about McCain, and while this displeases me, I'm also in no position to judge, is that he left his wife following her becoming crippled in a car accident while he was a POW in Vietnam. However, in researching this further, she was walking by the time he was released and she met him at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base when he came home, thinner, so much thinner, and barely able to walk himself. Not being privy to his life with her before he left and after he came home, I am in no position to judge what happened. Heck, Bill Clinton did almost the same things, running around on his healthy, intelligent and almost pretty wife and he was touted to be a national hero. Why is it bad to do these things when you are a republican but perfectly acceptable when you are a democrat?

Now, with all these things pointed out, why isn't the main stream media doing more to get the word out on Obama? Why are they not asking the hard questions? Joe Biden did an interview on a local news station in Orlando, Florida, an ABC affiliate. In this interview, he was asked some "...hard questions" such as the woman interviewing him pointing out that Obama's "Spread the wealth" philosophy was comparable, nay identical, to a message spread by Karl Marx. Biden's response? "Is this a joke? Is that a real question?" The powers that be in the Democratic Party ended the interview and have now blackballed the reporter and her television station from having any more interviews.

In short, Michael Malone, the author of the article linked into the headline, hits the nail on the head when he asks why the newspapers across America aren't doing more to spill the dirt on Obama when there is so much to spill?

It's been a while...

I've been ultra busy these last few weeks working on some freelance assignments.

I spent a wonderful week in West Virginia last week and have many stories to tell! I was pushed down some stairs by a ghost, I was stalled for half an hour by someone I "thought" was a leader in the community, um, let's see, I drove about 50 miles along a beautiful stretch of highway that was some of the twistiest road I've seen in my life.

I have some photos posted at my Picasa photo site if you're interested. There's a link on the left, Nancy's Picasa Site.
