At the same time the MSM provided President Obama and other pro-socialized medicine Democrats with free slanted coverage of their various healthcare “reform” bills, many of them were treating the opposition the same way far left liberals were: as birther fanatics, mobsters, “un-American,” Astroturfers, fascists, terrorists, brownshirts, racists, assassins, and Neanderthals.
Roll your mouse over the graphic and you’ll see that 60% of media mentions about the President were positive over the past week while 40% were negative.
Hey – what did you expect? The mainstream media by and large is doing what it does best when it comes to Barack Obama and most in the Democrat party. It paid off big for them in 2008. Will it work again in 2010? Their spin to the deeply skeptical public didn’t help get ObamaCare passed; that was greasy, sleazy backroom deals. But will their spin (which has already started) work in the days in months ahead as principled conservatives like Senator Jim DeMint put forth their best efforts at convincing the public that a repeal of ObamaCare is needed?
Stay tuned …
PS: While I’m thinking about it, if you have some change, how about donating a little to the Media Research Center, which funds Newsbusters? The gang there burns the midnight oil all day every day to bring you all the latest on the mainstream media bias front and without them, a lot of what we know about liberal media bias would simply fall through the cracks. Thanks for all you do, MRC!
