The Media’s ‘romance’ with Obama

January 25, 2009

Long time CBS newsman Bernard Goldberg has a new book out on media bias in this election cycle.

This is not a book about the same old media bias. This time journalists cross a very bright line. This time they stopped being witnesses to history and they were intent on helping to shape history.

You’d think McGirk’s story couldn’t get any worse than the headline — “Can Israel Survive Its Assault on Gaza? — but you’d be wrong.

January 8, 2009

So CNN is criticizing Joe the Plumber for his visit to Israel to speak to average citizens there (since all of the media attention is on Gaza) while again CNN’s own “experience” in reporting the “news” is again highlighted…

Would someone please just report the facts in an even-handed way? Doesn’t CNN have the resources necessary to determine facts and verify sources?  Is that too much to ask?
