Really? No Media Bias?

If someone suddenly begins casting overboard people that have shaped his ideology, doesn't that ideology become suspect by default? When it becomes politically expedient to disavow those who were once considered friends and mentors, Obama implicitly acknowledges that they are unsavory characters, and yet, he spent all those formative years listening to them and seeking their counsel.

Maybe it's just me, but I'd be willing to bet the ranch that if you witnessed someone murdering your child but he was let go free because of a legal bungling of the case, you'd certainly not give him a job as nanny to your other children. So why do Bill Ayers and several of his cohorts become professors at American Universities? They still readily admit to their crimes and refuse to even attempt to explain them as youthful transgressions.

Worse yet is the seeming forgiveness of Ayers by Obama and the rest of liberal Americans. Ayers was a domestic terrorist who declared war on America. I can't even imagine John McCain having such ties and if he did, you can be assured that the media would be all over it like bark on a tree. Oh yeah, the media cares about whether Sarah Palin improperly fired a subordinate, but they don't care at all about Obama rubbing elbows with a domestic terrorist.

Just a short while ago, Jack Abramoff was big news, and to be anywhere near him meant singed flesh and radiation poisoning. Yet Tony Rezko has had no apparent effect on the Obama campaign. I find that more than a little odd. Obama's own pastor is on tape saying, "God damn America", and yet the only reaction from the main stream media is a collective yawn. They'd prefer to investigate really important matters, like whether Trig was Sarah Palin's son or grandson.

Philip J. Berg, the former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania, has filed a federal lawsuit, No. 08-cv-4083, alleging that Obama does not meet the Constitutional requirements of citizenship to become President of the United States. It may have merit, and it may not, but one would think the press would be intrigued by it and report on it. No, we must first find out if then-mayor Palin tried to get books banned from the Wasilla Public Library.

The Clintons made an art form of successful denial, and Obama has learned well. To prove that there is no media bias towards the left, they simply say, "No there's not". And people shrug and say, "Okay", despite the proof all around them to the contrary.
