Here is a link to Philly.com which is the online site for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News: http://articles.philly.com/2012-02-13/news/31054992_1_powerball-biggest-jackpots-multiplier. On the site, as with all sites, are ads you can click on. The main ad is to raise money for Obama's campaign. Don't see an equivalent ad for any of the Republican candidates. So much for journalism being unbiased.(my apologies if the ad was moved due to some kind of cycle)

Well, it appears as though the ads cycle but to the left of the story.

I've got no problem with bias, there has always been bias in the media, during most of our history newspapers and magazines all had known bias. The problem comes when they try to hide their bias under a veil of "objectivity" that just doesn't exist.

Fair and balanced?

FNC doesn't hide their bias, and tries to be fair in their News segments, doesn't mean that they can't lean one way or the other.

CNN, MSNBC, Networks try to hide it.

Very true. This was looked at extensively in some of the books I've read regarding the Revolutionary War. News Papers at the time were flat out vicious. Almost makes today's look alright.

media was extremely vicious up until recently. Just look at elections between 1800-1900, almost every single one was constant attacks from one side or the other, sometimes both sides. Jackson's wife died from the stress she was under from the 1820 election.

The media didn't have the ability for the people to call bullshit then. One could almost say that the advent of the internet has made them be more honest, to a degree.

no, but they would call bullshit on each other, I think it was a little more fair/honest overall then overall

Maybe. If they weren't all on the populist band wagon.

See, that's the problem. To people like yoyo there the media has to be 100% leftist.

The media has a "social" stance toward the left....so yes the media can be said to have a left wing bias. But the most serious and real media bias is toward the establishmenet. They don't give a crap who it is as long as they are paying the bills.

Follow the money.

He's a lefty. he knows this but he tries to hide his hero's warts behind any veneer of leftist B.S. that he can. Pathetic really.

As Carlin said, it is the bulletin board of the ruling class.

I do find it awesome how effectively they have bifurcated the citizens of this nation.

I know, right? Until the leftist media was challenged through more balanced reporting by right wing sources, they were able to shovel their S*** down our throats unimpeded by truth. Now they have competition and their lies have to be more cleverly packaged and those lies are routinely destroyed by those dastardly villains who dare to stray from the herd.

Things were much better before those lies were uncovered. Oh those glorious days of yesteryear when people from all walks held hands and sang Coke commercials. How I long for those halcyon days and the comfort of those blankets of unopposed lies.:rolleyes:
