What Media Bias?

Two stories came up on the Reuters feed at the same time just now.  One was about Obama, and one was about McCain.  They're not even trying to hide it anymore.

Just contrast this...

Obama to take big step in Democratic race

Obama expects to claim a majority of pledged delegates won in state-by-state races after Tuesday's returns, but he will still be about 75 short of the 2,026 needed to clinch the nomination without further help from superdelegates -- party officials who are free to back any candidate.

With this...

McCain to mark Cuban day with new attack on Obama

Obama's vow to hold direct talks, without preconditions, with leaders of countries hostile to the United States, including Iran, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela and Cuba, has given McCain a broad opening to attack Obama over foreign policy.

He pounded Obama on Monday for pledging to meet the leader of Iran, saying to do so would reward a government in Tehran dedicated to destroying U.S. ally Israel.

At a town hall meeting in Miami, McCain planned to accuse Obama on Cuban Independence Day of wanting to soften the decades-old U.S. embargo against the communist government of Cuba.

Any difference in tone or content?  It seems like it to me.  Not only that, the McCain story is more about Obama than McCain.  The pro-Obama story mentions McCain briefly...

New Addition To The Blogroll

Very intelligent and insightful.  This could very well end up being on your daily "must read" list.  Check out kishnevi's blog, "Horseman, Pass By!".  You have my money-back guarantee* that you won't be disappointed.

* Money-back guarantee only applies if you don't pay any money, don't ask for money from me or your parents, or in any way imply you're gonna make some money off the guarantee.  Void where prohibited... which is everywhere.  Parse it all you want, just don't expect any coin, m'kay?

Oh Noes!!!! We're Doomed!

Prince Charles is the latest "big-name" (feh!) to get sucked-in by the global-warming/climate-change/AGW/muddy-thinking imbeciles and proclaim that unless something is done RIGHT NOW!!!!, catastrophe will strike us all down.

"We will end up seeing more drought and starvation on a grand scale. Weather patterns will become even more terrifying and there will be less and less rainfall," he said.

"We are asking for something pretty dreadful unless we really understand the issues now and [the] urgency of them." The Prince said the rainforests, which provide the "air conditioning system for the entire planet", releasing water vapour and absorbing carbon, were being lost to poor farmers desperate to make a living.

So, how much money is it going to cost to avoid all the children and little puppies getting killed by "weather"?

Senator Kennedy In The Hospital

Just heartfelt wishes for his speedy recovery and retirement.  Not even going to link a story because there aren't really many details beyond possible stroke or seizure and he was able to call his family.  Prayers for his family please.

S.Weasel Has The Chops

Check out the new artwork at S.Weasel's place.  She says she's been saving it for the right occasion and I would agree that a Malkin-lanche qualifies.  Leave a comment while you're there and take a look around her other posts.

Then come back here.

The Big Story About Anthony Pellicano Is Still To Come?

I haven't seen this anywhere else, but it looks huge.  A taste:

I called Ms. Busch this evening and she elaborated on the Chuck Philips angle. She told me that when she received a dead fish, a rose, and a note that said “Stop” on her windshield — a threat for which Pellicano was later indicted — a lawyer at the L.A. Times suggested that the paper investigate the matter internally, with the help of . . . Anthony Pellicano. It turned out that the lawyer is married to an L.A. Times editor who, in June 2003, had a Christmas gift from Pellicano on his desk — according to an L.A. Times reporter who told Busch about it.

Go on over to Patterico's and read the details.  It's a great post and I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes bigger than the trial itself.

When You Look Back At This, You Can Say That This Is Where It Began

The smears from the MSM aren't going to wait forever you know.  Since they've collectively decided that Obama has all but secured the nomination, it must be time for the real news to begin.

Presumptive Republican presidential candidate John McCain secured millions in federal funds for a land acquisition program that provided a windfall for an Arizona developer whose executives were major campaign donors, according to a USA Today report.

McCain, an Arizona senator, inserted $14.3 million in a 2003 defense bill to buy land around Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona, in a provision sought by SunCor Development, the largest of 50 landowners near the base, the newspaper reported on its Web site Thursday, citing public records.

I'm A Moron, But At Least I Can Say "No!"

Is there anyone in the world smart enough to be President of the United States?  No way, the job is too complicated.  Everybody expects you to be an expert on every topic under the sun, including the moonbat subjects.  Now, I don't study moonbat, but I recognize it when it rears its ugly head.

I'm considered pretty smart by most folks and that's great.  I'm in MENSA, mostly because I thought it would be neat to join, and that's great too.  But I'm also a moron compared to how smart someone would have to be to truly qualify for POTUS.  So every candidate pretends to know more than they do because it's expected of them.  Admitting you are less than expert on a topic will draw focus from the MSM like moths to a flame (or Rosie O'Donnell to cake).

Advice For Women About Doctors

Surprisingly, this comes from CNN.  I rarely see things from them that are either wise or healthy... they usually promote the "fad-du-jour".  These five points are pretty good for anyone, but especially women.

I'll be looking to see if they can make it two in a row.
