Media Bias is Officially Over

Be honest, when you saw the title to this piece you either thought this guy has gone crazy or we've returned to the roots of American journalism and we once again have an objective press. Sorry fellow citizens, neither of the foregoing is true. Ok maybe the crazy part has some truth to it.

Seriously, media bias is over. Unfortunately, the reason it is over as so astutely analyzed by Rush Limbaugh, is that the dinosaur media is no longer satisfied with being biased. It wasn't enough for them. Now they have moved right on to media censorship, just like in the old Soviet Union. The dinosaurs now decide what is newsworthy and what isn't.

It is downright scary. Don't believe me. Let's take a look at some of the election coverage over the last few weeks. The dinosaurs decided the following stories were big news: Sarah Palin's wardrobe, Sarah Palin's hair, mean spirited voters at McCain - Palin campaign events, and every facet of Joe the Plumber's personal life. On the other hand the following stories were not newsworthy: Obama's relationship with radical terrorist William Ayers, Obama's socialist "spread the wealth" economic plan, Obama's definition of rich going from $250,000 to $150,000 and dropping everyday, the tape of Obama's dinner with Palestinian terrorists and Bill Ayers, and Obama's interview comparing the USA to Nazi Germany.

Hey we're only electing the leader of the Free World, why nitpick. Let's face it, character and associations don't matter especially when compared to shopping at Saks. In these last few days, John McCain needs to sound the alarm of media censorhsip in the same way that Paul Revere warned of the British invasion. By rousing the colonists from their warm beds to the cold battlefield, Paul Revere helped save the nation. By rousing voters and alerting them to media censorship John McCain can do the same.
