" And every day
the fire is fed with more bad news"

How can this be ? The media will not report anything bad about Obama.

" Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood skewered Obamacare at the Country Music Awards last night. LOL! "

Is this more of the pro Obamacare media you are always complaining about ?

Um...the last time I looked they were SINGERS, not reporters.

But even if they were, I never said that every single person who has a connection with the media is a liberal. I know you guys love twisting my words, but I just never said that. ;)

Gee, I thought television was part of the media. Silly me.

By your logic, my dog is part of the media since he was on TV one day...lol

" By your logic, TV commercials or even a test-pattern would be "media." Gee, why do those silly people pay for commercials, I wonder !



Probably because there are thousands to millions of people tuned in so they can get their message out. But back to the point, an intelligent person should understand "media" when used in the context of "biased media" means "news media."

More twisting of words...lol

Because no one ever said that. What conservatives do say is that the media is biased. For instance, when liberal rags put Sarah Palin's gaffes on the front page, yet they stick similar gaffes by Obama (e.g., 57 states) in the bottom corner of page A-36, then that's an example of media bias, my friend. (And no, Bingo, there aren't any ethical dissimilarities here!)

Conservative: The sky is blue
Liberal: No, it isn't. At night it is black and on a nice evening it is orange to red! And the clouds in the sky are white! What are you talking about?
Conservative: *sigh*

Okay, Buzz, do you believe there is a media bias or not?

" By your logic, my dog is part of the media " I know you are having trouble getting your dog to vote the straight Republican ticket on election day. So I did some research and have discovered the problem.
Rule 1 of dog training.

Trainers IQ must be higher than the dog's IQ.

Of course there is. Has to be. Humans report the news, human editors decide what gets printed or telecast.
