Skip to comments.Not so subtle Obama-rooting in the media (Nothing new)

The flood-the-zone coverage of President Obamas fake evolution on gay marriage and the obsession with Mitt Romneys high school years have revived the media are in the tank for Obama complaints from conservatives. To that there are two responses: 1 ) Duh and 2) It is important to differentiate. To assist in the latter, distinguishing the laughable bias from the well-what-do-you-expect variety Ive come up with 10 clues (other suggestions are welcomed) for assessing how deep in the tank for Obama is a given news organization:
1. Multiple front-page stories run on Romneys high school bullying, while the administrations bullying of industry and his campaigns current snooping and harassing of Republican donors are ignored.
2. The incident personifying the current political environment is, we are told, the forced retirement of Sen. Dick Lugar (R-Ind.). The primary defeat and forced retirements of moderate Democrats, Senate Democrats refusal to pass a budget for three years and Obamas rhetorical shift to the left are simply business as usual.
3. Interest in the recall campaign against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) declines in inverse proportion to his chances of winning. The race is now considered simply local politics.
4. Life of Julia is a non-subject, requiring, when Romney mentions it in a speech, some fancy footwork to ignore or minimize the Obama campaigns giant faux pas.

Amazing that the compost allows this. The commenters hate it.
The MSM's cheerleading for Obama has gone well beyond laughable bias. It's 'evolved' into blatant propaganda.
Jennifer Rubin is pretty good sometimes. She’s worthless (i.e. liberal) on immigration, but that’s hardly remarkable.
The so-called ‘mainstream’ media has gone from “biased” straight to “utterly surreal”.
Last week Michelle Obama and Biden appeared on different segments and tonight it was MSNBC Mathews, Robert Gibbs and a CNN reporter for the panel - pretty sad. I thought they were above that sort of blatant partisanship.
Call ‘em as you see ‘em: LAM for Liberal Agenda Media.
No kidding. I was just amazed.
