Media Bias: Media Bias of all kinds.

The media doth protest too much

Feb 19, 2013 7:56 AM PT

The media really is freaking out over Golf-gate... at least, to the extent they're willing to get truly upset with Barack Obama about anything.  Yesterday brought a really remarkable Politico article about "Obama the Puppet Master."  I picked it apart in depth here; suffice to say, it's a marvel of passive-aggressive resentment mixed with admiration.  

Taken with other media anguish about Obama ordering them off the golf course, it might also be a very low-caliber shot across the bow at the White House - "even you can only abuse us so much, Mr. Obama."  Above all, it's a limited mea culpa designed to shift the blame for media bias, peppered with repeated insistence that conservatives have it all wrong.  The media's not serving as willing cheerleaders for a President they ardently support.  No, they've been seduced by Obama's awesome media manipulation skills and advanced technology!  They're really the victims here.  They're basically American heroes for bravely stepping forward and softly muttering about the way they've been treated for the last four years... months after Obama's second term was secure.

Obama hides behind the boys in blue and red; media swoon

Feb 19, 2013 7:33 AM PT

We interrupt this bout of media navel-gazing--why does Obama abuse us when we love him so?--to offer some constructive advice to the White House press corps: start showing some common-sense skepticism.

Today, for example, President Obama is surrounding himself with firefighters and police to claim that the evil sequester--which he invented--is going to force them out of their jobs. The media are aflutter about it.

In response to Tiger Beat: Our Corps of Celebrity Journalists Calls Out "Did You Beat Tiger [Woods]?" to Bieberish Heartthrob POTUS:

The Obama paparazzi aka MSM also sulked about not having access to POTUS:

The White House has prohibited media coverage of Obama's weekend golf outing, prompting Fox News' Ed Henry, who is the president of the White House Correspondents Association, to issue a statement saying, "a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend."

Prof Bans Fox News, But The Washington Post Was Still Allowed?

Feb 15, 2013 10:15 AM PT

More news from the ivory tower of Babel:

The syllabus tells students in a West Liberty University political science course what sources they can and cannot use.

Among those students are asked not to use are The Onion, an openly fictitious parody of real-life news, and Fox News, a professional news organization.

In the syllabus, the professor allegedly says, "The tagline Fox News makes me cringe."

Rubio Did H2O, Obama Did Blow

Feb 13, 2013 5:35 PM PT

It's funny how the media has been all abuzz about Florida Senator Marco Rubio's "Great Gulp Gaffe," today. As Breitbart News' Editor-At-Large, Ben Shapiro points out, CNN ("Jokingly") asks if Rubio taking a sip of water during his State of the Union response was a career ender. 

I don't recall the press asking the same questions or cracking jokes about President Obama when it was revealed that he smoked weed. In fact, when it was discovered that President Obama did cocaine in college, when he could "afford it," ABC News said "Obama's Cocaine Confessional Won't 'Blow' His Chances."

In response to CNN: Water Carriers:

Although I lean toward ignoring those making fun of Rubio to help end the discussion, Teri Christoph of Smart Girl Politics had a funny suggestion on Twitter: Why don't we all have avatars of us drinking water? #solidarity
