Bias in the Liberal Media - Its For Real!

Thanks for visiting my blog.  If you are interested in knowing why I started this project and continue to update it, I invite you to read my inaugural post that includes My Mission statement…located at

With just two posts on my blog, I probably mentioned the liberal bias in the mainstream media (MSM) a half dozen times.  For conservative veterans this is certainly no revelation.  Its been well known and its been going on for longer than most of us have been around.  That doesn’t mean we can’t do something about it. And the greatest weapon we have is awareness.  If enough Americans understood the dynamics between the MSM and the Democratic party and its gaggle of liberal politicians –a true love story – perhaps the effect that biased reporting has on the fairness of most races would be negated.  I did some digging and it certainly didn’t take too long to find stellar examples of liberal bias by the media.  I excerpted four stories that, while not necessarily the most blatant, are all fairly recent, which I think adds to their impact on the race we are facing now.  Links to the full stories are at the end of each excerpt.    

Washington Post’s Astounding Hit Piece on Paul Ryan
Read about a most horrendously biased story that ran in the Washington Post by "reporter" Lori Montgomery, a liberal journalist with direct ties to the Biden camp; “…VP Biden’s Communications Director, Shailagh Murray co-authored at least six stories with Ms. Montgomery when she [Shailagh] worked for the Post.” How cozy.  Its Biden that Ms. Montgomery praises “…as the genuine leader and consensus-loving man of action in all of this.”  JOE BIDEN?  Good Lord!  Inarguably the biggest buffoon in politics today.  And when you consider the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank, that's really saying something.

BUSTED: MSNBC Doctored Clip From Romney/Ryan Rally
Greg Hengler
A clip from a recent Romney/Ryan rally has recently been played over and over at MSNBC highlighting what appears to be an embarrassing moment on the campaign trail for Governor Romney. Originally aired on Wednesday's "Morning Joe," the clip shows Paul Ryan introducing Romney as the MSNBC-added text appears on the screen proclaiming that the crowd is shouting "Ryan!" Romney gets the mic and asks the crowd to say "Romney/Ryan!" Joe Scarborough covers his face and grumbles out the words, "Sweet Jesus."
The Blaze says this:  During Thursday‘s edition of TheBlaze TV’s “Pat & Stu,” one caller gives her account of the campaign rally.
“The crowd was yelling,” caller Sherry recounts, “the crowd was screaming ‘Romney! Romney!’ and Romney, being the gentleman [he is], we can‘t get in his head because he’s so stinking nice, he stopped us to add ‘Romney-Ryan.’”
I stitched together the MSNBC clip and the clip of The Blaze caller with Pat and Stu's reaction to her claim--and their reaction to the rally footage as they play it again without the MSNBC-added text. I also stitched together the original Romney/Ryan clip that I pulled from C-SPAN.

What appears to be an unpopular Romney seeking appreciation and attention from a Paul Ryan-infatuated audience is really a man who is generously deflecting attention away from himself onto his VP nominee.

MSNBC Gets Caught With Pants Down

Christie to NBC’s David Gregory: ‘I wish you guys were as tough on the president’
Published: 11:45 AM 09/30/2012

The Daily Call

On Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took a jab at moderator David Gregory and the media for being tougher on Mitt Romney than President Barack Obama ahead of this week’s presidential debate.
“David, I wish you guys were just as tough on the president,” Christie said. “The president says he’s going to create a million new manufacturing jobs. He doesn’t say how. He says he’s going to reduce the long-term debt and deficit by $4 trillion. Doesn’t say how he’s going to do it. I mean, let’s be fair here. Gov. Romney has laid out a direction and a vision for the direction of this country. He’s not an accountant. He is not going to go line-by-line — as much as you would like him to do — through the budget. But let’s hold the president to the same standard and criticize him as well, because how does he create a million new manufacturing jobs, David? He hasn’t told anybody the specifics of that. How is he going to reduce $4 trillion in debt? We’re still waiting to hear what he thinks about Simpson-Bowles, which he commissioned. I mean, he’s been the president and hasn’t given us specifics. So, let’s be fair, here.”

The Biggest Problem With Media Bias
Carol Platt Liebau
No serious person can deny the existence of liberal bias among the MSM.  I have criticized the media's "tag team" approach to covering the President before, noting that the press works almost in tandem with the Obama campaign to advance its arguments and downplay its candidate's mistakes and shortcomings.
Indeed, media bias is nothing new.  It has been demonstrated in studies ranging over at least the last thirty years that the press leans decisively to the left. Just last year, Professor Tim Groseclose -- no conservative -- argued convincingly that media bias typically aids Democrats by 8-10 points in a typical election.
This year, however, it is worse than ever before, as two female commentators I greatly admire, Mona Charen and Jennifer Rubin, both pointed out today.
The problem, as I see it, is that there is no corrective mechanism for the systemic bias we witness in the elite media.
