Media Bias...
What media bias?

Two different articles, both amazing in their bringing to light left-wing media bias.

Newsweek Gets Flood of Anti-Biden Letters, Publishes None of Them
By Tim Graham

It's bad enough that the new design of Newsweek came with blatant cover-story campaigning for Joe Biden. Then in the next edition, when it was time for Letters to the Editor, was there any chance of an anti-Biden message being published? No.

In the October 26 edition, there were only four pro-Biden letters hailing his "valiant voice of sanity." But here's where it gets funny: Newsweek ran a chart of its reader mail. Of the letters on the Biden cover, it said 25 percent were positive, 25 percent were neutral, and 50 percent were critical.

Not one of them was worthy? It's like Newsweek is saying: "Stop criticizing our heroes. We're not going to publishing your critical letters anyway."

In fact, this issue ran only seven letters: four for Biden, two criticizing Newsweek for allowing Christopher Hitchens to lament Obama's Nobel Prize, and one generic attack on "the right wing media."

The letter highlighted in large red type said "I'm glad Joe chose a life of service to this nation. And I'm glad Obama chose Joe, especially given his foreign-policy expertise. No typical vice president here."

This is pretty comical stuff from the "news" magazine that published an insulting cover story in 2005 on how George W. Bush was isolated within a bubble of people who agreed with him.
Then there's this, also from News Busters;

Klein: Fox's 'hateful crap' borders on 'sedition'
By George Joyce

For a fascinating glimpse into the seething and completely unhinged liberal mind check out Joe Klein’s dark and disturbing rant over at Time Magazine. The first line of the piece reads:

Let me be precise here: Fox News peddles a fair amount of hateful crap. Some of it borders on sedition. Much of it is flat out untrue.

Although Klein’s vitriol is off the charts it pales in comparison to what can only be described as his unseemly boot licking. Here’s an example:

If the problem is that stories bloated far beyond their actual importance -- ACORN's corruption, Van Jones's radical past -- are in danger of leaching out of the Fox hothouse into the general media, then perhaps the Administration should be a bit more diligent about whom it hires and whom it funds.

When a writer worries about stories “in danger of leaching out” he or she can best be described as a storm trooper, not a journalist. Just what is Klein trying to say here? Is he saying that snakes that are more capable of shrouding their identity from Fox News are a better bet for the Administration?

The philosopher Eric Hoffer once said the “missionary zeal seems rather an expression of some deep misgiving, some pressing feeling of insufficiency at the center.”

In other words, watch for these juvenile, Klein-like tantrums to only get worse on the left.
Sedition? For those who may not be sure, here's the definition of sedition;
An illegal action inciting resistance to lawful authority and tending to cause the disruption or overthrow of the government.As I said - media bias, what media bias?

It only takes a few minutes to change the "no" to "a".

Also remember that Klein is a liar, too. He published an anonymous book about Washington politics (and maybe the Clinton administration), then, when people suspected he may have been the author, he denied it....until the truth finally came out.

So is Klein calling for a revival of the Sedition Act that was 1 of the few blots on John Adams presidency??? Sure sounds like it to me. For those who don't remember, that law was passed to silence criticism of the Federalists, just like Obam Klein etc are trying to do to anyone who opposes Obama & the Dems.

Let's see what the next national (mid-term) elections bring. Then we'll see how firmly entrenched the Obama-maniacs are or are not.

I'm still trying to get past the realization that I actually agree with Christopher Hitchens on something (Obama's NPP).
