As I watch NBC's "Run-Up To The Superbowl" and Matt Lauer's interview of "President" Obama, I'm reminded that at $3.5 million/30 seconds NBC just gave Obama $30-35 million of advertising FREE.  I am also thoughtful about those who forcefully claim to me that "there is no bias in the media."  One such person, who claims to be Independent but who, in fact, leans far left, says he gets his news from NBC, which includes MSNBC, of course. It's not bias when the bias comports with one's own, and with the news media, especially NBC and MSNBC, bias is always far left.

But, I suppose I must remember what the great, "unbiased" Bill Maher asserted. The "Progressives have moved to the center and conservatives have gone  __________ ." Fill in the blank with whatever disparaging, denegrating, negative term that could be uttered by Maher. Frankly, for Maher to be a spokesman for the Democrats, the party of most of my family as I grew up in rural WV, is disgusting. But, there many more like him, many in office. Sure this will anger those on the left, but it is what it is.

No doubt the liberal media bias will intensify as the year progresses. The good news is that a smaller %age of the electorate pays attention to the media. The bad news is the same fact, so Obama has a distinct advantage there since many/most such potential voters don't have a clue who is running for the GOP nomination.
