What Press Bias.....?

Long after this election is over, the ramifications of the incredible MSM bias against McCain, Palin and the Republicans, will come back to haunt the 4th Estate.  The members of the 4th Estate have flaunted, and thumbed their noses at he public, abandoning even any pretense of non-partisanship and objectivity.

This is sad news for them, but even worse for us.  When the press, who should be neutral and objective, now go out of their way to actively promote and clearly demonstrate their partisanship, we have lost a key element of our society.  Like the little boy who cried wolf, who will ever believe them again?  And when they speak truthfully the next time, will we heed them?  Sadly, probably not.....

In the current election race it;s been clear to all where the sympathies of the press lie.  Joe Biden can make substantial error after substantial error in his statements; he can mouth statements contrary to his Presidential candidate; he can obfuscate, and demagogue; he can mouth incoherent drivel....but will the press ever comment on his complete and utter incompetency?  No.....

But let Sarah Palin ask a clarification question of her condescending interviewer Charlie Gibson about the Bush Doctrine (which even the phrase-coiner himself, Charles Krauthammer acknowledged that he would not have been able to answer with questionsing, and would not have given subsequent Gibson's answer), and she's ridiculed and labeled incompetent.  Here's some detailed exampled of the coverage given Sarah Palin:

Palin Still Standing After Blizzard of Negative Headlines 

Is the press out to get Sarah Palin? You betcha. In fact, we have the evidence.
Since Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin accepted Sen. John McCain’s invitation to join the GOP ticket as his running mate, negative news reports about her have flooded from the major media outlets.
We decided to take a peak at Associated Press headlines mentioning Palin since Sept. 3, the date of her GOP acceptance speech.
What we found was astounding. We found no comparable trend of negative stories relating to Barack Obama or his running mate Joe Biden. Here is a sampler of AP headlines:
