NY Times Explained in One Simple Chart

(skip to most recent comments)

Ben Gozzi?   Who's that?    Is he a Republican?   No?   Well, then who really cares?   Right?

Oh, and here's a real shocker:  The NY Times also endorsed Obama... enthuastically at that.

I know, didn't see that coming... did you?

In fact many left-leaning news outlets considered Plame-gate one of the greatest scandals in American history, even worse than Watergate.    After all "nobody got killed in Watergate" (their words, not mine).   So going by that comparison, why does the MSM and the same Democrats that made Scooter Libby a household name by screaming it weekly seem so unwilling to even mention Benghazi now?   Is it really just a complete double-standard or is it simply to close to the election to be fair and act like real journalists, especially since it could hinder the re-elecion of the current administration they so "secretly" support?

I tell you what... the only reason I get up before 8 am on Sundays is to see what the talking heads are saying, or in today's case not saying... and today they weren't saying anything about Benghazi.   I didn't catch McCain bring it up on CBS (off topic of course), but I was flipping around most of the morning expecting every one of them to at least mention what's been going on, but once again it was only the "biased, non-news network" Fox that brought it to the table as an actual topic.

However the tide does seem to be turning on media bias (well, at least it is here in the Midwest).   Just this past week multiple papers that have not only displayed a left lean in their past reporting/editorials and went for Obama in the last election (not to mention every other Democrat since Nixon too) made a surprising turn to the right and endorsed Mitt Romney, even writing scathing criticisms of Obama and the performance of he and his administration over the last 4 years.    There really isn't any great way to spin it for Obama (but that doesn't mean Stephanie Cutter won't try... desperately)

Even this rag formerly known as the QC Times-Democrat endorsed Romney.

*  Hat tip to Doug Ross for the clever chart.

Pro-tip for GW scaremongers: Wearing that "END OF THE WORLD IS NEAR" sandwich board doesn't make you look very credible.

With respect to the long-running discussion skinnydipinacid and kwAwk were having, Atrios recently posted a very nicely concise account that went

While our liberal media coddled and adored them, the truth was that the Tea Party never actually had anything to be angry about. Obama didn't take their guns, or raise their taxes, or give free Cadillacs to strapping young bucks. He did continue to be black, so there's that I guess. They couldn't be mad at the Wall Street bailout, because that's who was funding them. The only thing that kinda sorta made ideological sense was the auto bailout. So that became their thing.

And I can’t add much to something that so nicely sums it up except that if the feds decide to bail out a large industrial manufacturing enterprise and someone needs to take a haircut, Tea Partiers seem damn sure before it’s the bondholders it needs to be people who worked their whole lives on assembly lines, which kinda tells you all you need to know about Tea Partiers.

And this isn’t just ancient history. The position Romney took in the GOP (“Who’s Craziest”) primaries is now seriously hurting him in his nutsack, Ohio. Hence Lying Assweasel’s furious backpeddling. Whether you view it as a rousingly successful gamble or an insidious communist plot against Amercia, bailing out Big Auto is popular in Ohio (and Michigan) and that’s hurting the Assweasel.

I think liberals and Chrysler need to get their Jeep talking points straightened out before calling anything a lie... let alone sport Media Matters links as the backbone for their argument.


Fiat SpA (F), majority owner of Chrysler Group LLC, plans to return Jeep output to China and may eventually make all of its models in that country, according to the head of both automakers’ operations in the region.
Fiat is in “very detailed conversations” with its Chinese partner, Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. (2238), about making Jeeps in the world’s largest auto market, said Mike Manley, chief operating officer of Fiat and Chrysler in Asia. Chrysler hasn’t built Jeeps there since before Fiat took control in 2009.

p.s., if he wins Wisconsin and Iowa/New Hampshire, he won't need Ohio.
If it trends like the 2004 map AND he picks up Wisconsin he'll get 300.
If some of the blue states from that are now "toss ups" turn Red...
... it's going to be a very long, painful night for Democrats.

One of the greatest on-going comedy routines is the left's projection that the Tea Partiers are angry and nary a word over the last year about the murders, rapes, assaults, property theft, assaults and arrests from the Thug wing of the democratic party known as Occupy Wall Street. This projection furthers the theory that liberalism isn't a political philosophy but a mental disease.

It's good to see someone else in the MSM (besides Fox News) finally pulling their heads from their collective asses and asking some serious questions about this whole Benghazi insanity.

President Obama is such an unbelievable liar.
I hope he gets decimated on Tuesday.

What's this heresy? Our prophet, Grand High Exalted Mystic Leader Albert Gore, Jr., will be displeased.
