Media Bias More a Concern than Big Contributions in Politics


Because we all  know there is no liberal bias in the media … It only got Obama elected in 2008.


More Americans have an issue with state run media propaganda than they do big campaign contributions in political elections. And they should. When the media merely acts as a propaganda arm of the government rather than a free press responsible to “We the People” … we have a real problem.  According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 55% of American voters state that media bias is a bigger problem in politics today than big campaign contributions.

Voters agree that big money talks in politics but apparently not as loudly as big media.

Fifty-five percent (55%) of U.S. voters continue to think that media bias is a bigger problem in politics today than big campaign contributions, identical to the finding in August 2008.

Thirty-two percent (32%) say big contributions are the bigger problem, but that’s down four points from the previous survey. Thirteen percent (13%) more are not sure.

Because we all know there is no liberal media bias in the news these days. All one has to do is look and see how the MSM portrays the Tea Party movement and their unfair and unjust attempts to brand all individuals as racists who dare disagree with President Obama and the Democrat controlled House and Senate. Is it any wonder why Democrats do not think there is media bias is a real issue. Why should they, they are the beneficiaries of it.

Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Republicans and 62% of unaffiliated voters say media bias is the bigger problem in politics, a view shared by just 37% of Democrats. The plurality (46%) of Democrats says campaign contributions are a bigger problem.

How damning is a bias media? We need to look no further than the 2008 Presidential campaign and election where the MSM refused to vet, question or investigate Barack Hussein Obama’s past. REFUSED! If anyone dare question his opinions or his past, the MSM labeled you a racist. All topics were off limits. The result was the MSM aiding Obama into becoming the President of the United States because they wanted him to.

However, today we find that once the America public found out the real truth of Obama … his poll numbers have slipped to the mid 40′s.

It was not the money that elected Obama, it was the favorable news coverage painting a pretty picture of sunshine, flowers and unicorns.

      “It was not the money that elected Obama, it was the favorable news coverage”

      Really? I thought FOX was the most watched news channel? Fox and MSNBC are the same in my views…both pieces of trash when it comes to political view points.

      what got obama elected was fraud, lying,
      cheating, acorn, payoffs, and empty promises, and the paid for media.
      had he been vetted properly from the beginning,
      we wouldn’t be having to deal with his
      communist agenda.

      Wolf there is no comparison between the Fair and Balanced approach of FOX and the anti US rhetoric from MSNBC. Did you fall off a turnip truck?

    4. Wolf on April 7th, 2010 4:15 pm

      Dawg you’re crazy…you really think Beck and Hannity are fair? If you do then you’re just as wack as they are….they have no respect for anyone let alone themselves.

    5. Michelle Smith on April 7th, 2010 4:42 pm

      Fox is fair & balanced. It’s the MSM that can’t or won’t report the news.

    6. dawg1948 on April 7th, 2010 5:10 pm

      Wolf they don’t pretend to be fair and balanced on those two shows, one is a conservative Republican, and so states; and the other is more a conservative Libertarian, and so states. If you don’t like them watch some of the other shows. As for Hannity he has that Fat Drunk Bob Betchel on all the time and he is Damn sure not Conservative! Nor or a good deal of Hannity’s other guests. As for the remainder of the Fox News broadcast, I finds them more than Fair and Balanced. You sure cannot say that about MSNBC. So you live in your valley of ignorance I’ll live in mine. I will tell you if you think the mainstream media is unbiased then you are beyond help. They literally helped put the Moron we have in Office in Power and he is Killing Us.

      I’m still waiting for ANYBODY to disprove what Beck is saying.

      All I hear is “Beck is a jerk, WHAAAA”.

    8. Wolf on April 8th, 2010 12:11 pm

      You’re seriously defending Beck? How about this…did you buy your gold yet? Do you cry with him when he cries on television? You know the dudes crazy….

      the ratings prove that Fox is above all
      obama owned media. just like him, they can’t
      seem to stay on top. i bet michelle would
      testify to that also.
