Comments on: Is the media in love with Obama? http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/07/22/is-the-media-in-love-with-obama/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: DOLORES CLARKE http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/07/22/is-the-media-in-love-with-obama/comment-page-1/#comment-375873 Tue, 23 Sep 2008 22:50:44 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/trail08/2008/07/22/is-the-media-in-love-with-obama/#comment-375873 The media is biased. I am glad the McCain campaign
noticed that the MEDIA is all for OBAMA. It is sickening’to watch. I was going to vote Democratic
but I can’t stand the attention OBAMA gets with the
MEDIA and I am just a citizen. Charisma doesn’t make
a President of the U.S. I want someone to lead our
country with honesty, integrity and experience. They
talk about Sarah’s inexperience tell me what has OBAMA
done except talk. I do not want him to be elected
President right now, I don’t think he has enough
experience to run this country. Personally I also think
the Men in this country can’t stand the idea of a woman
running for anything. I saw with my own eyes and ears
the MEDIA just praising OBAMA.

Ever since pre-nomination running against
Hillary Clinton the media always praised and put OBAMA
ahead. How can a Senator for such a short time with no
accomplishments run our whole country. Just because he
can make speeches doesn’t make him a good candidate for
our country. MEDIA WAKE UP IT SEEMS LIKE SINCE PALIN WAS
ASKED TO BE VICE PRESIDENT AND THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN KNOWS
SHE IS LIKED BY THE PUBLIC THEY ARE DELVING INTO HER
PRIVATE LIFE. Why don’t they go after him after hearing
all the terrible things his previous Pastor said about
United States. They didn’t keep that up forever did they? Just look at all your previous reports including
Hillary Clinton. MEDIA WAS ALL FOR OBAMA. IT IS NOT FAIR.

Everyday on every channel going over and over about whether Obama was really a racist or not.

McCain was endorsed by John Hagee, who has repeatedly called the Catholic Church the “Great Whore,” who thinks women who take control of their household are “fallen women,” who believes that New Orleans deserved to be destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, and who thinks the Jewish people deserved the Holocaust because God wanted them back in Israel.
How much press coverage did that get. Nothing. No huge day to day coverage over whether McCain is sexist, anti-Semitic, etc. Nothing. Where the hell was the “liberal media?” No where to be found except possibly in the imagination.

Makes me wonder if the reason McCain gets only a little coverage is that there would be too many disappointments.

Obama. Maybe that’s because they’ve been deprived for so long of a candidate who can string together a sentence properly. What bothers me more about the MSM is that they’re allowing McBush so many free passes on the (a) lies or (b) mess-ups that tumble from his mouth EVERY TIME he opens it.

Elections are contests. They’re comparisons. This candidate is more [whatever] than that one is. But that one is more [something else] than this one. It’s almost impossible to contrast without comparing and – duh – Obama wins everything except the ‘Hoo boy, did he really say that?’ award.

Journalistic integrity is an oxymoron. I can see that the libs are going to be pissed again when their guy loses. Unbiased ROFLMAO !!!

Now that is funny, as it was exactly what the communications director for the Clintons’ said last night on O’Reilly. So, the fact is that democrats do admit that Obama is a media favorite and treats his coverage as such. It killed Hillary. But when McCain brings it up, he is whinning. The double standard is quite interesting. Just like the Times, the NY Times is a liberal mouthpiece and has lost all credibility. I canceled my Times Mag subscription. I would like to subscribe to the NY Times, just to cancel it, as well.

Barry will find (paraphrasing the quote) he can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all the people, all the time. At some point, he is going to have to stand up in front of the American people without a teleprompter and try to explain his positions.

The GOP has been using emotionally charged phrases such as “stay the course” and “victory in Iraq” for years. As the party has refused to define what, precisely, “the course” is (presumably it’s a course _to_ somewhere) or what would constitute “victory in Iraq,” these terms have just served as a smokescreen to confuse the public. The NY Times is simply doing its job to prevent vacuous rhetoric from paralyzing the electorate. At long last the war-hawks are being called on their deception.

It’s profoundly irritating, honestly, that Obama is dogged for the charisma and energy with which he proposes real policy when its his opponents who have made political careers on deceitful policy proposals.

Vacuous rhetoric and smokescreens to confuse the public like, “Change” and “Yes we can” or “charisma and energy with which he proposes real policy.” Exactly what is different about a liberal promising to forcibly confiscate the earnings of the most productive members of society to fund all the wants of the lease productive?

If the “Paper of record” (what a joke) is truly objective and interested in fairness at any level, why do they not trust their own readers to make the judgment about McCain’s piece? It seems the NYT is telling it’s readers just what they think of their intelligence by blocking them from forming their own opinions.

The Opinion Editors job is to edit for spelling, grammar, and sentence structure to make that person’s opinion more readable… not to tell them what they should be writing about.
That’s why this stinks.

We are a country of Whimps, most want something for nothing, why work when you can sue someone. Why have our laws when they are not enforced. Pass more laws seems to be the plan of our Law Makers. With Obama the end will just come sooner. The only change he cares about is to be elected.
