Fox News and other media outlets have projected that President Obama has been reelected to a second term. If, in celebrating his victory Obama wanted to give credit where credit is due, he might want to think about calling some of America's top journalists, since their favorable approach almost certainly made the difference between victory and defeat. Reviewing the 2012 presidential campaign, here are five ways the media elite tipped the public relations scales in favor of the liberal Obama and against the conservative challenger Mitt Romney:

Further, we are going to see an awful lot of language about how stupid the American people are. They are not stupid. Most people are not like you and me, they don't check FR every morning, watch Fox News, or listen to Beck, Rush, Levin, Boortz, et al. They get their news through the mainstream media. And as you can see from this article they heard a lot about what an evil, unfeeling, out-of-touch rich guy and next to nothing about the incompetence of the Obama administration.
So I lay the Obama victory, and the potential demise of the republic we grew up with, entirely at the feet of the mainstream media. The folks at the Media Research Center used to sell a t-shirt with the words, "Journalists for Obama. Since 2007." When I posted a picture of it last night, the mods pulled the thread mistakenly claiming it was a solicitation. It most certainly was not. You can't even buy it any more as far as I know, but that one picture tells the story of this election better than any image I know.
So, what is the solution for a media that has become, at the very least unconsciously, the propaganda arm of the Democrat party? That is not an easy question to answer, but unless it is answered, we may have reached the tipping point of permanent one-party rule. Welcome to the USSA.
Lying about the state of the economy was the main one. A lot of the idiotocracy does not know that we are not in a recovery. There are going to be some confused people over the next few years.
we need a Latino version of Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck
And when they wake up they will be very angry. Let's hope they don't resort to the tactics of your nom-de-freep.
Whether or not the majority of the US Public believed those 5 situations true or they knew what was being instigated against the GOP was false - in the end, the Republic was at stake and they didn’t care. This election was the tipping point, hopefully 2014 can put in place stop gaps from allowing this socialist regime to continue to weaken and impoverish the U.S.
Delay Measures need to be put in place - and we must get a majority of citizens to actually care about maintaining the US values and freedoms once more...
No one is entitled in this nation - freedom is earned, not given...somewhere this was lost and covered up - and the MSM should be wary of this trend - because it will be that lot or people dragged out in the streets when society collapses...the rest of the public that voted for people like Obama will be sitting idly at home waiting for their handout that will never come!
Welcome to Zombieland!!!
Covering Obama’s butt over Bengazi
It would have been round the clock haranguing if it had been a GOP president
Ditto to your point on Benghazi, although I think Boortz also had a great point on having 49.1% of the population tied to the .gov teat in some way. Rush made that point well today on the “can’t beat Santa” perspective.
