Media Bias 101: What your “objective” MSM is “reporting” this week on Campaign 2012

Posted by: ST on June 22, 2012 at 10:33 am

MediaAs I’m sure you guessed, and as many of us predicted they would, our predictable mainstream media are now in full-blown “re-elect President Obama” mode, and they aren’t afraid to show it. Here are a few examples of what they felt was “important” to report this week related to President Obama, Mitt Romney, and Campaign 2012:

Tim Graham, Newsbusters – WashPost Uses Romney Sons’ Interview on ‘Conan’ to Recount Its Teenage-Haircut-Hazing Expose (But Obama’s past is strictly off limits.)

Staff, Free Beacon – Politico Reporter: Romney Only Comfortable Around “White Folks” (“Raaaaaaaacism” meme full steam ahead!)

Fox News, courtesy of SooperMexicanNBC edits Romney rally speech to portray candidate as out of touch. This happened on “Andrea Mitchell Reports” and Mitchell herself played the full version of the video a couple of days later without directly addressing the issue. Surprise.

Kyle Drennen, Newsbusters – NBC’s Williams Dismisses Holder Contempt Vote: ‘Just Looks Like More of Our Broken Politics’ (Let’s ask slain border patrol agent Brian Terry’s family if they believe Fast and Furious represents nothing more than an example of “our broken politics.”)

John Nolte, Breitbart.com – Politico Reporter Tweets Ann Romney Penis Joke (Update: Reporter has since been suspended)

That was just a sampling. Prepare yourself. There is much more out there, and much more coming in the months ahead — especially as polls show Romney either gaining on Obama or leading.

  1. Drew the Infidel says:

    AP (American Pravda) is in the big fat middle of this charade as well. In yesterday’s (Thursday’s) newspapers there was a 19 paragraph story about the contempt charge. Brian Terry was only mentioned in passing in the 9th paragraph. I have discovered a new oxymoron on the same level as “sanitary landfill”: “journalistic integrity”.

  2. you want bias? in the year since the “fast and furious” broke NBC did one story on it.
