That Liberal Media

I always get Tired Head over the claim of the "Liberal Media." Not only do we have Fox News, but conservative talks shows dominate the radio dial. But, to get to the point, her's Obama making a gaffe when speaking about his faith. If the media is so liberal, why wouldn't they just have left this clip on the cutting room floor? (Thanks emailer.)

I like the way the interviewer saves him. Whew!

He's terrible in interviews/unscripted situations.

That's a simple mispeak of the idea he was trying to express, corrected/clarified immediately, and no big deal, or shouldn't be, nor should it be when his opponent does the same thing. What a waste of time for anyone to focus on something like this when there is so much of substance available to bust his chops. The reason this was not cut is so that they can exclaim "see, we do so show the D's in a bad light!" This is fluff, a non-issue, and doesn't cover for the fact that the liberal media (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, the vast majority of print media, etc.,- you know who they are, they are the ones liberals like to watch and read), continue to toss softballs at Obama. There are more conservative views expressed on the Fox News channel than on the above mentioned channels, but Fox does a better job of clearly dstinguishing between expressions of editorial opinion and news reporting. The others blend opinion and reporting more often.

Ya know....this is one of many mistakes he has made while speaking about any number of subjects. I'm just sayin.

If news is slanted way to the Right, it is fair and balanced to a Conservative. If the news is equal, it is Liberal Bias. Reading a book by Andrew J. Bacevich, a Conservative that "gets it" explains that R. Reagan and W. Bush were/are both flaming Liberals or phony Conservatives, your choice. They just say they are not Liberal and are Conservative, and Conservatives are happy to believe it unconditionally. These are the Conservatives that "don't get it."
They believe in "Fairy Tale Conservatives that grant wishes." Conservatives are fooled really easy when they just want to believe in fantasy.

Sure, there are some conservative media outlets, but come on, the majority are liberal.You've got to be a little naive to think they aren't kissing some Obama butt. I want to know what happened to the media? I know reporting the news, means reporting what has happened in current events, but you cant read or see the news without hearing about the reporters opinions or predictions of what is going to happen. Just the facts from the news would be great.

A year ago I did not watch Fox News; however, since CNN and MSBC failed to go after Obama for his connections to Rev. Wright and William Ayers, I started watching Fox for coverage on Hillary Clinton. They were fair and balanced in reporting.

Obama has a pass from all the other networks except ABC. More time has been spent on Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter than Obama's biography.

The media has a liberal bias and I will not listen to their bias pundits!

Hopefully the public will think for themselves and make the right choice in November.

I have not heard one word about Obama's mother being 17 and pregant when she got married. They just want to talk about her as being this girl from Kansas.

Hang on - Ron Reagan is soon to be on the air.

Not sure if it is radio or tv.

This should give Rush a rush.

Come on people are you that neive this guy is a Muslem and deep down everyone knows it and don't want to admit it we need an American in the White House a real American and Jonh Mcain is that American.

Even the darn Wise County Messenger only has liberal crap in there about how wonderful Obama is and how horrible McCain and Palin are. Chris Matthews orgasms every time Obama speaks and I'm glad to see him and Olbermann have been fired from their anchor positions covering the election, because they are pathetic.

I still maintain Obama stumbles and stammers worse than Bush when speaking off the cuff. If he is speaking having rehearsed and off the tele-prompter he's great, but otherwise he stutters and stammers worse than Mel Tillis.

Fox news is a direct response to 40years of liberal advocacy news. It wouldn't exist if it weren't for overtly liberally minded news outlets. If the traditional media had been "fair and balanced" then Fox News had it materialized at all would have died on the vine.

The cutting room floor idea for obamas reliogion gaffe? Huh, dude you had to hear about it by way of a youtube clip from an emailer.

If McCain would have said something that telling (and retarded) we would have been bommbarded with it daily all day long by every outlet some of us would call "The liberal media"

To your credit, if we look at you as a news media outlet you published it, essentially no one else did- a perfect illustration of liberal advocacy medias existence.

I always get tired of liberal bias. Not only do we have ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN and NPR, we have the New York Times, LA Times, Boston Globe and most all other newspapers. I wonder why newspapers are laying off their news staff? Could it be that nobody is buying their bias? And even though we don't have all of the major news corporations pimping for the conservative viewpoints but instead the liberal weenie agenda, they want to censor the opposing view by enacting the fairness doctrine. I would love to hear Skippy debate this.

Obama can't give a straight answer to the tough questions because he just flat doesn't know the answers because he has not had time to seek the advice of his 300 advisers. A tough head of state like Russia's Putin would eat him alive one on one.

That's the first time I saw it...and all I watch is news and sports...

I'll have to second DC's observation. ALL I watch besides an occasional DVD is news, specifically political news. I had to stumble across it here? That might kinda, sorta give the "Liberally Dominated Media" idea some legs to stand on wouldn't you think?

denney crane: I think Barry is being one of those overly sensitive liberals, embarrassed that his Boy made such a gaffe.

OK, I'm not the first one to allude to this and I'm asking because well it may NOT mean what it looks like but, dudes and dudettes, I watch a buttload of news programs and it seems some kind of strange to me I had to find that video here?????

I'm sorry but, if McCain would have said something, anything in the same vein that seemed to cut that deep at the heart of who he is and who people think he is, it would have been headline news on every network, newspaper and news browser in America.

PS I kept hearing about the 57 state gaffe and hearing repeatedly how it was a misunderstanding, or he corrected himself immediately and even that it was faked by a conservative group. I finally came across that also. He said it. He meant it. It was real and he made no on the spot correction.

The mass media is so firmly in the back pocket of the liberals it's a miracle (and a testamnet to the message)when a conservative gets elected to anything at ANY level.

As much as politicians speak, their gaffes are fun to poke at, but actually don't mean a lot. Now, if that same principle of forgiving verbal miscues were extended to George W. Bush, the public perception of him would be much different. The Liberal media created a caricature by focusing so much attention on his occasional mistakes. When Liberals get the majority of their news from the Daily Show, that says a lot. (Rush Limbaugh's listeners are considered the most well-informed of any audience, by the way.)

Conservative talk radio readily identifies itself as such. Incredibly, the mainstream media tries to present itself as impartial. Even the Washington Post ombudsman agrees that there's a bias.
