The media caught in the cookie jar?

Hey all-

I believe that the media has once again been caught with its hand in the "cookie jar" of liberalness.

Let's look at the evidence.

Chris Matthews is not even trying to be objective. Let's look at his latest statement.
The NBC News political unit has some brand new battleground maps on the fight for the White House. Let’s check in with NBC News political director Chuck Todd. Chuck, dazzle us right now, will ya? Because I’m thrilled with this — Obama’s strength in the Northeast, the West Coast and the Great Lakes."

NY Times explains itself. Read its offical statement regarding why they rejected McCain's article. "It would be terrific to have an article from Senator McCain that mirrors Senator Obama’s piece. To that end, the article would have to articulate, in concrete terms, how Senator McCain defines victory in Iraq. It would also have to lay out a clear plan for achieving victory — with troops levels, timetables and measures for compelling the Iraqis to cooperate. And it would need to describe the Senator’s Afghanistan strategy, spelling out how it meshes with his Iraq plan."

The Media is in love with Obama. Duh. During Obama's recent "world tour," he recieved 92 minutes of coverage, compared to McCain's 8.5 minutes of his tour while he visited Iraq this past spring. A recent poll by Fox News showed that 67% of voters think that the media wants Obama to win.

My favorite comment from Chuck Todd came on Meet The Press this weekend when he said, 'Already 78% of Clinton supporters have decided to support Obama. That just leaves 10% who won't vote Obama. Then you realize that every election 10% of Democrats vote Republican.' Last time I checked 100-78=22. Also, that's 22% of former Clinton supporters. That's not a definitive read on all Democrats willingness to vote Obama. With polls showing basically a tied race, seems like Todd is utilizing some creative math.
