Bias at Yahoo again.......this is NUTS

THIS is the kind of article Yahoo's now putting on its homepage headlines (it's got gems like this sentence "Mitt Romney would be out selling his book and trying to come up with a tiny bit of difference between Romneycare and Obamacare") subtle, huh? It's a huge hit job on Republicans and, particularly Palin......Hit stories, I guess, are what American readers are supposed to believe is non biased, worthy of headlines on a supposedly non biased homepage which Conservatives and Liberals alike use?

This post isn't about Sarah Palin, I don't even want to talk about her anymore...this is about the left's constant protestations that they have no bias, but FOX SURE DOES :-)

Is it not a fair question to ask? Actually, I happen to find that statement more objective than anything. What is the difference between Romney's Mass. healthcare plan and what recently passed? The statement is spot on in that any differences are subtle to say the least.

This is why for the life of me I simply cannot get my head around this fascination of Romney amongst the Republican faithful. Of course the Republican faithful are less concerned with principled policy than they are with populism.

Human Events was spot on some years ago in placing him at #8 I believe it was on the RINO list.

Harpers also had a telling article about him and his "conversion" (Mitt Romney: The making of a conservative).

It goes back to what I was saying in the other post about those in the Republican party who think they have any credibility now criticizing Obama's stimulus package when in fact they voted for the Bush/Paulsen TARP bailout.

Any sensible individual isn't going to listen to someone displaying that level of hypocrisy nor would they desire to have them speaking for them.

Man, Soapbox, my post is about media bias.
Yes, I agree about Romney and the health plan! Does it seem fair to you that we constantly get articles with this much bias and libs have the nerve to call Fox BIASED? That's my point. The whole article I linked has plenty that would have got Robert Gibbs at the WH steaming at the news press conference if it was aimed at the Dems or his King, Obama.

Sister Sarah is going to be on the Boston Common tomorrow at a "huge" teabagger rally.

I'm going to pass.

In my humble, but correct, opinion, the folks at Yahoo are a bunch of yahoos.

Ducky, go see Palin....I wouldn't go.
I'm over her...but she did that to me, you didn't :-)

Having studied media and corporatism in America, I quit expecting any objectivity from them long long ago. They serve their interests one and all.

I have one question. How in God's name are we going to survive in this country if the media is determined to sound like five year olds who throw tantrums and name calls?

Margaret Carlson wrote this article and sounded more like Maureen Dowd on her worst day. On her best day she sounds like a seven year old.

If anyone would allow himself to be swayed by this kind of commentary he needs to have his head examined.

It's obvious that any conservative is in for this kind of infantile response regardless of who it is. It's sandbox politics. The left cannot debate serious issues, as adults.

We're watching our country being taken down the tubes, and the media is focusing on gossip and style of political figures, none of whom is running for anything at the moment.

The state run media is a reflection of the leaders of the state. That says all we need to know.
