Left-wing media bias: not just a right-wing delusion

Michael S. Malone, writing for PajamasMedia:

No, what I object to (and I think most other Americans do as well) is the lack of equivalent hardball coverage of the other side - or worse, actively serving as attack dogs for Senators Obama and Biden. If the current polls are correct, we are about to elect as President of the United States a man who is essentially a cipher, who has left almost no paper trail, seems to have few friends (that at least will talk) and has entire years missing out of his biography. That isn’t Sen. Obama’s fault: his job is to put his best face forward. No, it is the traditional media’s fault, for it alone (unlike the alternative media) has had the resources to cover this story properly, and has systematically refused to do so.

Mr. Malone is ashamed to be a journalist (RTWT). The media is covering for Obama, ignoring anything negative, and pursuing nothing. It is deliberate and systematic, and you're a damn fool if you don't see it. The old media has become Pravda for the Obama campaign.

Hell, even Dan Rather has noticed.

H/T Instapundit.

In this entry, I link to a post where alexthechick...

... puts you some motherf*ckin' knowledge.

It's simple, read DPUD, get knowledge. And shoes. And sometimes fashion models working as ball girls for tennis matches.

I'm not sure who said it, but it bears repeating: wealth cannot be spread, only money.  Money ceases to be wealth the moment it's taken by force, since it could just as easily be taken again.

Hope. Change. Shooting the other guy's tour bus.

We are the brown shirts we have been waiting for. If you see this on CNN, let me know, I could use a paradigm-shattering surprise like that.

Violence to advance a political agenda is extremely dangerous to the thin fabric of civility that holds our nation together. Don't encourage it, don't endorse it, no matter how tacitly. Doesn't matter who's hitting who, you have to stand up and say "no" or we all lose.

Cool facts about Joe "the Plumber" Wurzelbacher

From Ace's thread, saved here just for fun.

1. Joe the Plumber doesn't use a blowtorch to sweat pipe, he just asks it good questions until it starts sweating on its own.

2. He asked Obama a question, and Obama got the answer wrong.

Linking videos is almost like blogging!

McCain was on the right side of this all along. So were Bush AND Clinton, for all the good it did.
