While watching those speaking at the Republican Party's National Convention on Wednesday and Thursday night, I realized there was a steady theme from those addressing the GOP faithful. There were many opportunities to slap down the mainstream media and I'm happy to say those opportunities were taken advantage of. In fact, a nice swat should be taken at the mainstream press whenever possible. Indeed, media swatting should become a part of the Republican platform. Let me see...lower taxes, smaller government, pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, etc. and anti-media, but not necessarily in that order.
It's about time Republicans start calling it like it is, when it comes to the liberal media's love affair with the Democratic Party in general and specifically Barack Obama. Spiro Agnew did it very well back in 1971 when he referred to the media as "nattering nabobs of negativism." Yes, I know, things didn't go that well for Agnew and his boss Richard Nixon shortly after those days. But the then-vice-president's constant tirades against the press sure felt good while they lasted.

Yes, we need more Republicans like Spiro Agnew, not afraid to take on the press. It is a crime how that wonderful man was crucified by the left-wing press and liberal Democrats.
They have never understood - its not about manners & decorum, its a matter of survival.
The Drive Bys are showing the American people what biased Liberal scum they are; up close and personal. By attacking Sarah Palin and McCain, they’re committing political suicide. They’re like an Al Qaeda terrorist wearing their suicide vests. Their biased words and dirty deeds will blow up in their faces soon enough.
I agree and thank God we have a real leader.
That's why, on Wednesday I wrote my column on how anyone can spot press bias by asking themselves just two questions. People believe and will hang onto a piece of truth which they discovered on their own. The same truth offered to them in a lecture or harangue may be ignored, or quickly forgotten.
I say that as someone who lived in Baltimore County where he was Chief Executive, and taught at the University of Baltimore where he was a part-time Professor (as was I). I followed his career very closely. He DID take bribes, just like his successor as Chief Executive, Dale Anderson, a Democrat, who was also convicted for corruption.
