No you aren't alone in your opinion of the media. Regardless of political preference, to say that the media isn't overwhelmingly bisaed in favor of Democrats would be to ignore the obvious.
And, concerning other issues such as the economic collapse, Ken Lay at Enron and Bernie ? at Worldcom, were petty thieves compared to the people at Goldman Sachmans, Lehman Brothers, Frediie/Fannie, and half of the bankers and hedge fund managers from New York to Connecticut.
Those super thieves have not received any of the media scrutiny that Lay and co. received. The flying-monkey bankers and friends have been in the same bed as the silly writters (they can write well and still be silly) at the NYT, Wash. Post,Chicago Trib., etc, they they have all become together, an incestous cesspool of pseudo intellectual dis-enlightenment.
These people go to the same type of schools, subscribe to the same world view, and look at the rest of the world through an unnaturally colored prism.
Many Conservatives warned McCain over the years, that all of his liberal friends in the media and elsewhere would treat him as a pariah as soon as he was a true opponent against a liberal Democrat. They didn't even offer him a goodbye kiss.
Americans still believe the main stream media enough to give a big edge to their (MSM) preferred candidate. McCain never had a chance this year.
And, without some real thinking on the part of the American people, things will only get worse. Dr. Paul at one time was raising more online money than Obama, but was still treated, by the media, as a joke. There are very few serious thinkers given any airplay by the large media, anymore. ...bobford
