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.
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... more...
hmm.... so they have. I didn't think to get a screencap, but I think my credibility is probably higher than theirs (my dog's credibility is higher than theirs) so folks will believe it was there. I'll know better in the future. Thank you Sir.
I wonder if Google cache would have it?

I'm beginning to get a very serious malaise because of the hopelessness the media gives to me.
Sites are added to the Moronosphere and Gerbil Nation blogrolls by request. I got everyone on there who was there when they were made, so email me if you know of a new addition. Some of these are on the main blogroll as well and will remain duplicated.
The main blogroll is at my own discretion. I gratefully accept suggestions by email, but I don't do blogroll exchanges. If a site is there, it's because I personally recommend it. If it's one that is not updated often, check out the archives and you'll probably see why it's there. I will rarely remove a site from the main blogroll once it's there.

Therefore, comments other than my own do not reflect any viewpoint of mine, no matter how long it appears as I will likely remove comments that cross the line of decency. If a comment is removed, a notation that the comment was there will be inserted. Any questions or concerns about posts, comments, copyright, or other issues may be addressed by emailing me at "stashiu3 AT gmail DOT com" replacing the AT with @ and DOT with a period. If that's too complicated, maybe you shouldn't be on the internet without supervision. Just sayin'
