    To me it's natural that a sitting president, especially during these hard times, should have more negative press than a candidate running against him. By job description there should be more news about Obama since he's the POTUS.

    What I don't get from the news I see is the claims that Obama has/is getting a free ride in the press, that he is the "anointed one".

    It's also frustrating that some reporting, such any good news, such as job growth in certain industries, or housing markets in certain areas on the upswing, or even Obama being reported praising the Olympic athletes or the Mars mission is reported as liberal media bias in trying to get the President reelected. In my opinion it's just news.

    Any news reporting that does not crucify Obama for something is considered media bias by those who hate Obama as president.

    I need to bookmark this well so every time I read about MSM bias I have facts and statistics to show. Of course this will probably be considered not fair and it will be anohter case of take the ball and go home rather than play nice.

    Before you start quoting 4thestate for statistics and facts I suggest you look at the entire website objectively. The site is an ultra left-wing liberal site. Worse than the Huffington Post. Nobody would consider them a credible source. Repeating what they say as fact would be like repeating what the KKK says as fact. They both have agendas. Besides this website is a British website that is owned by a company that was once owned by Rupert Murdoch.

    "The 4th Estate's parent company, Global News Intelligence, provides similar influence analysis services for government and Fortune 500 companies." Just like the KKK?

    Is the Huffington Post worse than Fox News?

    Is there a particular statistic on the page you referenced faulty? Or do you dismiss it simply based on your opinion of source that compiled the statistics?

    In reality the news, at least cable news, cares little about conveying information, or news. They want to attract viewers so they can sell advertising. If Fox News runs a story criticizing Gabby Douglas for not dressing as an American flag, or fanning the flames of Obama birtherism, they stir controversy and attract even more high-fiving views. The owners of the news outlets, almost all large corporations, are laughing all the way to the bank. (Corporations can laugh, since their people too, as Mitt Romney and the Supreme Court said.)

    The news you get is almost completely from corporate sources. That is what the MSM is. Guys in suits with fiduciary responsibilities to shareholders. Good luck running a democracy on that.

    Not that the website in question isn't biased but didn't Murdoch start Fox News and all things ultra-conservative?

    Which reenforces my point about an agenda. I prefer to do my own research and try to ignore what the media, or blogs want me to believe.

    Tweety, thank you for this link. I am new here and you keep me confused. It seems most people here are either one side or the other. You seem to show both sides. For what it's worth, I repect you.

    I expect MSNBC to present their side. The shows are not presented as news.
    It does get boring when they interview each other.

    I expect Fox to present their side. I recoil when they say they are "Fair and Balanced'.
    They also seem to present a lot of unfounded gossip. More like the TV version of a tabloid.

    Just my opinion.

    I knew something was wrong when I read this sentence in the third paragraph of the above link: "This new era in media conceit coincided with the advent of a liberal mindset that took on the weight of the world, a new era in which liberals felt that their ideals rose above God, tradition and country."

    Here's the guy who wrote the article:
    Warner Todd Huston is a Chicago based freelance writer, has been writing opinion editorials and social criticism since early 2001 and is featured on many websites such as Andrew Breitbart's BigGovernment.com, RightWingNews.com, CanadaFreePress.com, StoptheACLU.com, TheRealityCheck.org, RedState.com, Human Events Magazine, AmericanDailyReview.com, and the New Media Journal, among many, many others. Additionally, he has been a frequent guest on talk-radio and TV programs to discuss his opinion editorials. He has also written for several history magazines and appears in the new book "Americans on Politics, Policy and Pop Culture." He is also the owner and operator of PubliusForum.com.

    That article is right-wing horse manure.
