After seeing this Air America Radio talk show host’s opinion of the so-called mainstream (CBS, NBS, and ABS) media bias, one would have to wonder just where his planet is? The notion that they are all biased in favor of Republicans is beyond laughable.
Since President Obama’s address before the joint session of Congress on Sept 9th, lets review what has been said by Obama and what has been done by the Obama administration, then ask yourself if you’ve seen the dichotomy reported in any of those media outlets.
He says all bills will be made publicly available no less than 10 days before it would be voted on. He wants bills voted on without being read or even completely written. He kills amendments submitted by Republicans that would require legislation be made publicly available 72 hours before being voted on. Why would they do that?
He says that illegal aliens will not be covered under whatever health care bill ends up being voted on. He kills amendments submitted by Republicans that would require proof of citizenship for participation. Why would they do that?
All that and not a peep out of the media that is supposed to be biased to the Right? The media silence demonstrates exactly the opposite.
