Left Leaning Media: All The News That Gets Obama Elected

Thursday, June 19, 2008

There are so many main stream media outlets that are trying to will Obama into the White House. They are writing fiction to make him win the Presidency.

Take CNN for example, who are now saying this: Poll: Obama leads McCain in swing states

They use unreliable polling data from a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday that says, “Ohio, a state Obama lost to Sen. Hillary Clinton by 10 points in March, he’s leading McCain 48 to 42 percent.”

What make this poll suspect is the fact that it took place over 8 days, “from June 9 – 16”. These statistics fly in the face of more trusted and reliable polling by Rasmussen which polls daily.

The Rasmussen Report says, “John McCain and Barack Obama remain in a statistical dead heat in the key swing state of Ohio, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the Buckeye State.

McCain holds a statistically insignificant one-point lead over Obama, 44% to 43%, among likely voters. Seven percent (7%) favor a third-party candidate and 7% are undecided.

A month ago, when Hillary Clinton was still in the Democratic race, McCain also held an insignificant one-point lead over Obama and the GOP hopeful actually polled 7% lower than Clinton among Ohio voters. Clinton defeated Obama in the Ohio Primary by 8 percentage points.”

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Barack Obama attracting 45% of the vote while John McCain earns 41%.

When “leaners” are included, Obama holds a three-point advantage, 48% to 45%. Both results reflect a single point gain for McCain and a continued fade for Obama’s bounce. Today’s results are the closest the race has been in polling conducted since Obama clinched the Democratic Presidential Nomination.

Here is something the left will not report:

“New data released today show that Congressional ratings have fallen to an all-time low —most Americans now say the legislature is doing a poor job. Thirty percent (30%) believe that most members of Congress are corrupt.

The Obama media band wagon includes MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann and Chris Mathews, NBC News and CNN. ABC’s “The View”, CBS “Early Show”, The New York Times, especially reporters Michael Powell and Jodi Kantor and of course The Chicago Sun Times.

A complete and daily tracking of the Left’s Obama love-fest can be seen at NewsBusters

Here’s a sampling of posts: “Obama Advisor’s Dog-Ate-My-Transcript Dodge”, “NYT’s Powell Defends Michelle Obama on MSNBC”, “Us Weekly: Michelle Obama ‘Down-to-Earth Mom’ Who ‘Shops at Target'”, “CBS’s Tough Look at Obama: Loves Scrabble, Doesn’t Like Ice Cream” and “Obama on Terrorist Rights: Joe Calls Out Mika on ‘Moral Choices'”

It is nearly impossible to get a “fair and balanced” view of politics from the “Fourth Estate” in the United States. The term Fourth Estate refers to the press, both in its explicit capacity of advocacy and in its implicit ability to frame political issues. The term goes back at least to Thomas Carlyle in the first half of the 19th century.

The constant “good news” on Obama has the same effect as the media’s Global Warming hysteria and bad Big Oil. It distorts the public’s perception when it only sees and hears one narowly focused point of view.

Isn’t that just like the old Soviet Union, Mao’s China and Fidel’s Cuba?

    When are you idiots going to dry up about the “left wind media bias”? Can Fox News be called left wing? Can any of the huge corporations that now own ALL OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND WHO ARE ALL BIG CONTRIBUTORS TO THE GOP be called left wing? No, the truth is that your hero, Geo. W. Bush, had an eight year cake walk with the media. They knew Bush and his team were a bunch of bottom shelf clowns, who were lying to us and yet they published the lies almost without question. They have even been caught presenting copy that was prepared in the WH Information Office. Yeah, right; lefties always cave to the WH Press Secretary.

    You’re all pissy because you had your way for eight years and the result is that you’ve brought this country to the brink of collapse. Now the people have had enough and all you have to offer is John McCain, holding a party line that no one cares to hear anymore. You’re going to lose big this year, not because the press is stacking the deck against you, but because you’ve proved yourselves to be both inept and morally bankrupt.

    As a centrist independant, who often votes Republican, I can tell you that the only future the GOP has is to re-group, repudiate the neo-conservatives, and bring the party back to the center. We look to the GOP for restraint and pragmatism to balance the left-wing excesses of the Demcrats. There’s nothing wrong with conservatism, just as there’s nothing wrong with liberalism. Both viewpoints have balance. But just as the Democrats went too far to the left in the 1970s, the GOP has moved too far to the right. Pluralism has become polarism and it isn’t working. So stop blaming the media and clean out your own closet.

    There is no way Obama will take Ohio. I don’t know who they poll in Ohio, people from Shaker Heights maybe. Ask people in the Western Hills area of Cincinnati. Ask people in Harrison, OH. I don’t know what is going on with polling. It has been all over the place and I think it can’t be believed.

    I must agree with the first commenter. You should not accuse the media, like CNN of “left leaning,” when you have Fox News, which is notoriously known for its inaccurate Republican biases.
