Political Bias must stop

Political Bias really has to end…

The truth about bias is that it is often presented as if it were the truth.

Is Bias the same as Opinion?

Are we not entitled to an opinion?

These are two very different questions and it is obvious to the thinking person that Bias is not the same as having an opinion however I suspect you can have a biased opinion…

PBS Bias?

The Chances are good that you may not even have heard about this story and the reason may be offensive to some people.

Amazing if this is true then it really show why that the Media should not receive public tax dollars when they are not capable of reporting fairly in respect to news stories, in this case PBS allegedly would not be a “real” news source. When a publicly funded organization does not represent the people have paid tax dollars that go to an organization such as PBS then that creates questions, that should be answered. When you consider it, it undermines the democratic process, because at some point you now have a situation where political bias could become the basis for a dictatorship, oppression and slavery are the products of this kin of evil, (allegedly)

Barack Obama has gone to Congress asking for more money to spend. The President, in a rambling and tedious exercise mixing blame with demands, made quite a few dubious statements in laying out the case for Congress to vote for the plan which as yet does not exist. Much like Obamacare, Congress must ultimately vote for the bill to know what is in it. At one point Mr. Obama made a major gaffe; he identified Abraham Lincoln as the founder of the Republican Party. Lincoln did not join the Republicans until 1856, over two years after the party was founded. The first Republican convention was held in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854. Such a gaffe would have brought huge amounts of ridicule and derision on George W. Bush, but in the case of Obama the media yawned. Actually, they did more than yawn; government-funded PBS has altered the transcript of the President’s speech, removing the offending comment. The New York Times transcript has the following quote: “We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. Founder of the Republican Party. But in the middle of a civil war, he was also a leader who looked to the future — a Republican President who mobilized government to build the Transcontinental Railroad — (applause) — launch the National Academy of Sciences, set up the first land grant colleges. (Applause.) And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set.” But how does it appear in the PBS transcript? “We all remember Abraham Lincoln as the leader who saved our Union. But in the middle of a Civil War, he was also a leader who looked to the future – a Republican president who mobilized government to build the transcontinental railroad; launch the National Academy of Sciences; and set up the first land grant colleges. And leaders of both parties have followed the example he set.” So PBS has purposely altered a transcript containing a major gaffe by the President. See a screen shot:

Sure; we have a fair and balanced media! The best government money can buy! Update: Brian Birdnow adds: Shocking, but not surprising! B-Ho was also wrong on saying that Lincoln started the first land grant colleges. Each state is in charge of its own educational institutions and most of the states entering the union after 1815 had designated state universities,with grants of land, in their state constitutions. That is the reason that major state universities are in near the geographic center of their respective states, and not located in the major urban areas. Update from Russell Cook: It now says at the top of the transcript page now “EDITOR’S NOTE: The original transcript provided on this page, as was noted, reflected the president’s remarks as prepared for delivery and released by the White House. This transcript has been updated to reflect the remarks as delivered and released by the White House.”

Political Bias

Did Wolf Blitzer try to inject bias into some of the questions on last nights republican tea party debate?

Are Americans tired of the constant coverage of all kinds of  stupid topics?

Every day you see political bias in the news, sometimes, it is directed at one party or another, but almost always it is not fair, nor is it balanced.

Fox news seems to think that they have this idea of what fair and balanced really is, but is that true and more importantly are they being influenced by bias on behalf of data they “think” represents America?  Are they more interested in what the Advertisers have to say or are they more interested in the peoples view?

In a news story by the new york times, (used to be a better publication allegedly) a writer talks about political extortion, which is well a lie, since the real truth tends to support that the party of no here has been the democrats, while Harry Reid has not allow a vote on legislation that would actually help balance the budget, the democrats have said no.

Mitch McConnell said hey why not have a vote on both measures, the Harry Reid, measure, (which is allegedly unconstitutional) since all spending bills shall originate in the house, but hey OK that has not stopped the democrats from doing what ever they can no matter if it is legal or not.  Go figure.  Still we have all this political bias in the news media, now that is something that is really interesting, when you study history, and read what was written back in the middle 1800s, you can see a pattern developing here and it is not a pretty picture.

So what can we expect from our dearly elected leaders?

Apparently not much as they continue to blame each other, and the news media continues to blame one party when obviously both parties, are at fault, and not just for this last three years, but for the last 70 years.  There has been a growing issue that is causing some serious problems and we need to take some action and get this done right, not some half baked ignorant super congress, (no Gangs are mentioned anywhere in the constitution) Gangs are not constitutional.

Get it right Washington or the election in 2012 will prove to be unsettling for many of you moss back hypocrites, that have been up there far too long.

irene obamas katrina?

Slow response?

People Stranded?

Sound familiar?

Is Irene Obamas Katrina?

That is a good question, because as of this AM, New Jersey, is waiting for help, from the Pen of President Obama, could there be a political bias at work here, just as many asked President Bush about why it took so long to do something about Katrina, what is going on, was the media wrong?

Was the Media lying about bush and are they not covering this story now?

What is going on with the Media anyway, are they really as stupid as they appear to be?

Or are they intentionally being stupid? We have to wonder because it is obvious that when you see huge flooding in states upstream from New Jersey then you know it has to be a problem for New Jersey, that is just common sense, but the thing is do they have any common sense at all?
