Go to www.msn.com (http://www.msn.com) to vote on their ongoing poll. I'd give the direct link, but I've already voted and it just links to the results of the poll.

Amazing on msn, not exactly a bastion of conservatism. So far 79% of the folks has said that the media has a lib bias and not being fair to McCain, 14% says all the coverage of O's trip to Iraq is fair because it's "newsworthy" and 6.5% say that sometimes it's fair.

Check it out and hopefully add to the 79% figures.

I doubt that it will get any airtime since it doesn't look favorable to the new messiah.

Network Anchors Join Obama World Tour, Little Coverage for McCain Travel

While Thursday’s New York Times reported that the anchors from all three network newscasts will be joining Barack Obama on his trip to Iraq, they showed no such interest in following John McCain during his visit to Iraq in March. During the week of March 16, McCain’s trip received only four full-length stories during the combined ABC, CBS, and NBC evening news program coverage. Three of those stories were on NBC’s "Nightly News," one of which focused on McCain’s mistaken comment about Iran funding Al Qaeda in Iraq. ABC’s "World News" did only one full-length story on McCain’s Iraq trip, which mentioned the gaffe. The CBS "Evening News" was by far the worst, devoting only 31 words, a grand total of 10 seconds, to the Republican nominee’s Iraq visit during the entire week of evening news coverage. Read Media Research Center press release here.

No, there's no bias, no slant, no unfairness... :rolleyes:

There is no doubt that these lefties are foaming at the mouth over the possibility of an Obama Presidency. I saw this story earlier and voted but could not believe the percentages because this is a left leaning outfit.

Perhaps DU isn't quite as powerful as they think, a legend in their own mind. Now it's 80% in favor of McCain. Hmmmmm, very interesting.

Is Democrat Barack Obama unfairly receiving more coverage than Republican John McCain? * 118415 responses
Yes, the media has a liberal bias. No one should be surprised by this.
80%
No, media coverage is based on newsworthiness. McCain is just not as newsy as Obama.
14%
Sometimes, but it's a long campaign. There weren't a lot of McCain complaints during Obama's problems with Rev. Wright.
6.2%
Not a scientific survey. Click to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding.

This isn't a "who would you prefer?" poll, it is quite obvious the media hype on Obama, literally anyone can tell, and I'm sure even liberals have voted McCain on this issue.

True, but from this poll you can interpret that an overwhelming majority of Americans feel that McCain is not getting a fair shake. Plus, Americans are noted for their fairness, and this poll does not bode well for the opposition and the left wing media for taking sides in a Presidential election.

Personally, I like John McCain and what he stands for. Mostly - I like his history of service to the country and the fact that’s he’s willing to put himself out there for a really thankless job. But come on, he’s not the prettiest candidate to ever fill a TV screen and God forbid the presidential election come down to a free-throw.

Marketing a fossil is hard work.;)

Marketing an amateur like Obama is even harder.

McCain will rout the Magic Negro and the results will be a certainty by the time the polls close in Cali-fornicate.:)

This one doesn't. In this election I don't find either attractive, but respect McCain. I don't trust Obama and don't want him to be president. Period.

I agree. I hate his smirks and "snotty" looks. Once again you got the right word to describe him.

The Obama supporters said that Hillary wanted and expected a coronation. Obama expects a deification. Oy! :rolleyes:

And as part of attractiveness - isn’t physical movement, the ability to be fluid and not an automaton in your appearance, important? Poor John looks a bit like the military general dude leading the mob in ‘Young Frankenstein’. (It’s a joke - so STFU):cool:

Quite frankly both have shown that they're not above changing positions for just about any reason. McCain's "maverick" honest image is completely gone, Obama's "different kind of politician" is shattered.
