For any of you out there that have denied media bias or think that those of us on the right are being hypersensative and percieving the media as a massive hit job on the right, this oughta put your denial to rest.
Its not so much that its true the media is slanted to the left. Whats shocking is how transparent “in your face” this example was.
I was watching CNN this morining do a story on the ratio of “robo calls” being sent to households acrosss America.
The report first focuses on the ratio being 10 to 4 McCain being the one issuing the majority. After that they go on to report that a mothers young daughter had recieved one of these calls and that the mother took the phone from the child only to hear the tail end of it.
The mother said she was offended by what she heard, and that the call was disgusting. The only problem is that the quote from the mother was from a comment thread at the KOS which CNN was proudly displaying on the monitor behind the reprter.
Since when does a legit news organization start using comments from the KOS to reafirm its stories ?
I went to the KOS looking for the comment that CNN had aired and this is what I found.
Disgusting Robo-Calls Slam Obama

CNN is reporting live that the McCain campaign and the RNC has launched a series of ridiculous robo-calls into key swing states.
This is a brief diary, with additional content below the fold.

Via Huffington Post:
The call begins: “Hello. I’m calling for John McCain and the RNC,” before telling recipients that they “need to know that Barack Obama has worked closely with domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, whose organization bombed the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, a judge’s home, and killed Americans.”
CNN reports that some of the states include Virginia, North Carolina, and Ohio. They say that the McCain campaign does NOT disavow these tactics nor the call. Here’s a YouTube audio of just ONE of the calls going out:
I want to know what is so “disgusting” about the message in this “robo call”.
Is anyone aware of Ayers background ?
Are anyone of these people aware that what the call says about Ayers is very, very true ?
I had to get this off my chest as it was one of the most blatantly bias attacks on McCain by the liberal media I have ever seen. Yet
CNN putting out reports of people disgusted with McCains computer generated stump calls when the info in the call is absolutley correct. And then using comments from the Daily Kos as a means to reafirm that report.
