The Left has completely lost it. Stick a fork in 'em.
Why is Obama sinking in the polls? Because the media is biased towards Republicans.
So what is this house advantage the Republicans have? It's the press. There is no more fourth estate. Wait, hold on...I'm not going down some esoteric path with theories on the deregulation of the media and corporate bias and CNN versus Fox...I mean it: there is no more functioning press in this country. And without a real press the corporate and religious Republicans can lie all they want and get away with it. And that's the 51% advantage. ...
But most importantly we should bring up re-regulating the media and who owns it and what that conflict of interest is a lot more. By pretending there's no conflict of interest we're failing to alert the public that they're being lied to or given a looking at a coin at the bottom of a pool slanted truth. Every time a pundit or elected official is on any TV news program it should be a polite formality to mention that GE has made such and such billions off the war in Iraq by selling arms or that Murdoch is a right-wing activist with a clear stake in who wins and who taxes his profits the least. Disney, GE, Viacom, and Murdoch -- all want profits and the candidate and agenda that will get in their way the least.
I mean, seriously. Seriously. There are people on the Left who actually believe that the media is biased in favor of Republicans.
That's insane enough, but just in case you aren't yet convinced we're in Bizarro-world don't miss the fact that self-described "liberals" see only one solution to this perceived bias: clamp down on free speech!
It's kinda sad, like watching a possum twitch after it's hit by a car. I can only hope that the remaining fragments of the Democrat party can regroup after November and come back in a few years with a newly rational political philosophy that doesn't depend on the lunatics that are their current base.
