      Conservative leaders claim unprecedented media bias this election cycle
      Published September 26, 2012

      Two-dozen conservative activists and media personalities on Tuesday urged members of their respective groups to switch off the “biased news media,” claiming in an open letter that establishment media are “out of control with a deliberate and unmistakable leftist agenda.”

      Though these groups frequently complain about a left-leaning media bias, they claimed in the letter that the political slant this cycle is unprecedented. …

      According to NewsBusters, part of MRC, the letter was directed at the heads of ABC News, NBC News, CBS News and CNN.

      The video clip of an Obama supporter should have been included in the new attack ad against Mitt Romney. IMO

      It is hard to believe that the major media networks don’t get it … the major media Networks that are Obama mouthpieces.
      “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the Public Treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always followed by dictatorship.

      The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two-hundred years. These nations have progressed throught this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to abundance; from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back again into bondage.”

      This is not new. The media bias existed in 1980, 1984 and 1992.

      The socialist agenda is desired by most of the old newspaper and TV media. Why they do this makes little sense. If they are able to promote a socialist state, they will loose their freedom of the press.

      When Romney/Ryan win, there needs to be some serious investigation of all the old media and either large fines given or take away their FCC licenses.

      Unpresidented media bias? Oh, you mean on the part of Fox News, right?
      SM: Hardly. If you cannot see that there are media skewed polls and the corrupt liberal media complex is in the tank for Obama you are are either blind, clueless or a Leftist Kool-Aid drinker.

    7. I WANT A LEADER on September 28th, 2012 5:07 am

      SM: No, not all polls are wrong and bias. However, the ones that have a +9D and +12D sampling is a fabricated fraud on the American people. Sorry, the historic 2008 election had a +6D turnout. So you are telling me of a miserable last 4 years that more people are going to be energized and vote for Obama in 2012 than 2008? That’s a pipe dream.

      The 2010 midterms had a +4R turnout.

      Sorry, any national poll that does not have a sampling of even to +1D is BS. Those are the facts.

      Instead of typing in CAPS, tell me 5 things Obama has done for America? The fact is he is destroying America and the economy. At the rate of the Obama job growth we will be hack to 2008 levels in 40 years.

      private sector job creation under President Obama has far exceeded private sector job creation under President Bush. 40 months into his presidential term, there are currently more private sector jobs in the economy than when Obama came into office. At the same point in President Bush’s term, the total number of private sector jobs was still down 1.7 percent from where it began.
      The numbers are even starker when measuring each president’s record from the moment job creation returned. Private sector job creation returned in February of 2010, the 13th month of President Obama’s term. Since then, the economy has added 4.3 million private sector jobs, a 4 percent increas
      SM: More people have left the work force than ever. Does that mean anything to you? Record number of folks on Food Stamps. Mean anything yet? The job growth is so pathetically weak, its disastrous. You so understand that the size of the recession and jobs lost means the rebound of jobs is just as fast because of the number of jobs lost, right?

      Take an economics class as well.

      BTW … please stop spreading the lie and educate yourself …

      Fact check: 4.5 million new jobs created under Obama? NO. What Obama cherry picking #s’? Say it isn’t do.

      However, CNN fact-checked that claim and found it to be “not the whole picture.” Instead, CNN found that there has been a net increase of just 300,000 nonfarm payroll jobs since Obama took office. And if you count government jobs, there are actually 400,000 fewer people working today than in January 2009.

      When Democrats use the 4.5 million jobs number, they’re referring to jobs created after the economy bottomed out in January 2010, one year after Obama took office. That time frame excludes the worst job losses, which took place in 2009, and which many Democrats argue were the result of Bush policies.

      CNN concludes: “The figure of 4.5 million jobs is accurate if you look at the most favorable period and category for the administration. But overall, there are still fewer people working now than when Obama took office at the height of the recession.”

      the democrat plantation has it’s slaves actually working this morning.

    10. I WANT A LEADER on September 28th, 2012 7:03 am

      you have a flawed candidate and a flawed conflicted party.
      Mitt Romoney has no core.
      Nothing he believes in. No vision for America.
      Insults half of the country. good luck with getting that kind of candidate elected. They will play that tape over and over…..Its not a “gotcha” moment…..That is the real Mittens
      He has two home states……Neither will vote for him lol

      Sever conservative????? hardly. The guy you ran is so full of it he doesn’t even know what he believes in
      SM: So what is Obama’s core … Socialism or Communism? You make the call.

    11. I WANT A LEADER on September 28th, 2012 7:07 am

      Mitt Romoney: Let the Auto Companies go out of business……
      That is playing well in the Midwest.
      Sure he is Etch A Sketch…… To bad all he has said on tape cant be erased.

      say what you want about Obama……He speaks from his heart.
      Mittens speaks from what he is programmed to say….
      Enjoy the next month and enjoy the landslide electoral college results…I wonder if Romoney will even crack 195 votes.
      SM: Please educate yourself and stop reading Democrat talking points. Romney did not let the Auto Companies go out of business. Good grief. All he wanted was normal bankruptcy precedings to take place like with every other company in the US. The same result would have occurred as is present, except the American tax payers would not have been on the hook and the Unions would not have received a pay off.

      Companies file bankruptcy all the time to reorganize, ever read articles about airlines? Hmm? Get a friggin clue, filing for bankruptcy does not mean out of business.

      Obama speaks from the heart, ROTFLMOA. he speaks to what is divisive and what will get him elected. His coverup and lies of Benghazi-gate shows how he speaks. Americans died and he covers up what happened and runs off to a campaign stop, nice.

      Speaks from the heart … Yeah!

    12. I WANT A LEADER on September 28th, 2012 7:42 am

      here is exactky what he said in his own written words.
      you need to get out more.

      IF General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed.

      Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check

      hey lets talk about hypocrite Mitt’s claims on China….
      Sm: Nope, they would have reorg’s under bankruptcy protection which is exactly in a way what the bailout was. Only difference is that Union bosses were given tax payer $’s.

      You might want to read the article below, GM could still go belly up even after government bailout.



    13. publicenemy2u on September 28th, 2012 3:25 pm

      tell me 5 things Obama has done for America?

      1. Passed Health Care Reform: After five presidents over a century failed to create universal health insurance, signed the Affordable Care Act (2010). It will cover 32 million uninsured Americans beginning in 2014 and mandates a suite of experimental measures to cut health care cost growth, the number one cause of America’s long-term fiscal problems.

      2. Passed the Stimulus: Signed $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 to spur economic growth amid greatest recession since the Great Depression. Weeks after stimulus went into effect, unemployment claims began to subside. Twelve months later, the private sector began producing more jobs than it was losing, and it has continued to do so for twenty-three straight months, creating a total of nearly 3.7 million new private-sector jobs.

      3. Passed Wall Street Reform: Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (2010) to re-regulate the financial sector after its practices caused the Great Recession. The new law tightens capital requirements on large banks and other financial institutions, requires derivatives to be sold on clearinghouses and exchanges, mandates that large banks provide “living wills” to avoid chaotic bankruptcies, limits their ability to trade with customers’ money for their own profit, and creates the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (now headed by Richard Cordray) to crack down on abusive lending products and companies.

      4. Ended the War in Iraq: Ordered all U.S. military forces out of the country. Last troops left on December 18, 2011.

      5. Began Drawdown of War in Afghanistan: From a peak of 101,000 troops in June 2011, U.S. forces are now down to 91,000, with 23,000 slated to leave by the end of summer 2012. According to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the combat mission there will be over by next year.

      6. Eliminated Osama bin laden: In 2011, ordered special forces raid of secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in which the terrorist leader was killed and a trove of al-Qaeda documents was discovered.

      7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry: In 2009, injected $62 billion in federal money (on top of $13.4 billion in loans from the Bush administration) into ailing GM and Chrysler in return for equity stakes and agreements for massive restructuring. Since bottoming out in 2009, the auto industry has added more than 100,000 jobs. In 2011, the Big Three automakers all gained market share for the first time in two decades. The government expects to lose $16 billion of its investment, less if the price of the GM stock it still owns increases.

      8. Recapitalized Banks: In the midst of financial crisis, approved controversial Treasury Department plan to lure private capital into the country’s largest banks via “stress tests” of their balance sheets and a public-private fund to buy their “toxic” assets. Got banks back on their feet at essentially zero cost to the government.

      9. Repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”: Ended 1990s-era restriction and formalized new policy allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for the first time.

      10. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi: In March 2011, joined a coalition of European and Arab governments in military action, including air power and naval blockade, against Gaddafi regime to defend Libyan civilians and support rebel troops. Gaddafi’s forty-two-year rule ended when the dictator was overthrown and killed by rebels on October 20, 2011. No American lives were lost.

      11. Told Mubarak to Go: On February 1, 2011, publicly called on Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to accept reform or step down, thus weakening the dictator’s position and putting America on the right side of the Arab Spring. Mubarak ended thirty-year rule when overthrown on February 11.

      12. Reversed Bush Torture Policies: Two days after taking office, nullified Bush-era rulings that had allowed detainees in U.S. custody to undergo certain “enhanced” interrogation techniques considered inhumane under the Geneva Conventions. Also released the secret Bush legal rulings supporting the use of these techniques.

      13. Improved America’s Image Abroad: With new policies, diplomacy, and rhetoric, reversed a sharp decline in world opinion toward the U.S. (and the corresponding loss of “soft power”) during the Bush years. From 2008 to 2011, favorable opinion toward the United States rose in ten of fifteen countries surveyed by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, with an average increase of 26 percent.

      14. Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending: As part of the 2010 health care reform bill, signed measure ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans. Starting July 2010 all students began getting their federal student loans directly from the federal government. Treasury will save $67 billion over ten years, $36 billion of which will go to expanding Pell Grants to lower-income students.

      15. Created Race to the Top: With funds from stimulus, started $4.35 billion program of competitive grants to encourage and reward states for education reform.

      16. Boosted Fuel Efficiency Standards: Released new fuel efficiency standards in 2011 that will nearly double the fuel economy for cars and trucks by 2025.

      17. Coordinated International Response to Financial Crisis: To keep world economy out of recession in 2009 and 2010, helped secure from G-20 nations more than $500 billion for the IMF to provide lines of credit and other support to emerging market countries, which kept them liquid and avoided crises with their currencies.

      18. Passed Mini Stimuli: To help families hurt by the recession and spur the economy as stimulus spending declined, signed series of measures (July 22, 2010; December 17, 2010; December 23, 2011) to extend unemployment insurance and cut payroll taxes.

      19. Began Asia “Pivot”: In 2011, reoriented American military and diplomatic priorities and focus from the Middle East and Europe to the Asian-Pacific region. Executed multipronged strategy of positively engaging China while reasserting U.S. leadership in the region by increasing American military presence and crafting new commercial, diplomatic, and military alliances with neighboring countries made uncomfortable by recent Chinese behavior.

      20. Increased Support for Veterans: With so many soldiers coming home from Iraq and Iran with serious physical and mental health problems, yet facing long waits for services, increased 2010 Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 16 percent and 2011 budget by 10 percent. Also signed new GI bill offering $78 billion in tuition assistance over a decade, and provided multiple tax credits to encourage businesses to hire veterans.
      Sm: Um PE, it was supposed to be things that were good for AMERICA, NOT DESTROY IT.

      #1, #2, #3 are BS. Obamacare is disastrous for America. Premiums are up if you have not notices and a debt to America that we can never sustain. The stimulus has been en EPIC failure that provided no jobs as added $1 trillion to debt.
      Dod-Frank was a crock, the very two creeps that caused the banking and mortgage catastrophe come in like white knights and save the day, eh.

      Turned around the auto industry? Seriously dude? GM is on the verge of bankruptcy again. 18 of the things you referenced are pure bunk. Why don’t you get some more from the Democrat talking Points web site.

      What a joke.


    14. publicenemy2u on September 28th, 2012 3:28 pm

      I’ve 30 more if you need em
      (tell me 5 things Obama has done for America?)
      SM: Yea, he has certainly done it to America. We were referring to things that benefited the US, not drove it over the cliff with giveaways, increased debt, created little to no jobs.

      What wou referenced was not for America, maybe for his campaign donors and the slackers of America who want nothing more than a free give away at the expense of others.
