    Go to 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.

    Here's a direct link to the poll.

    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...

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    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.

    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.
