OK. I read it again. So you are saying you believe the media (which is over 85% democrat) only gives the democrats so much coverage because the democrats are more interesting? It has nothing to do with the media's liberal agenda? It is simply because Republicans are boring. If the Republicans were just more interesting the media would fall all over itself giving Republican causes equal and fair coverage. I got it now. In fact, it is becoming increasingly clear how out of touch you really are. You really do have NO IDEA what motivates our media establishment.

Why see the world in black and white. Republicans are boring in their presentation and the media is biased against them to begin with. Why not accept both and then do something to force the media to make concessions. Leak news to reporters who give you a fair chance. Those that dont listen can then explain to their bosses why they were scooped.

Besides Im not convinced that the media is biased so much in favor of liberalism as they are in favor of action to solve problems including government action. Since Bush is a big government conservative he ought to be able to get a fair hearing if he could make what he's trying to do a bigger story than the Dems story about scandal, blah blah.

Well, I was reading through your multiple posts trying to condense them all for a single answer when I came upon your statement above. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? You think the media is "in favor of action to solve problems"?!?! The media IS the problem. How could it possibly be that you've missed how biased, flawed and false their reporting has been regarding Iraq. How could it possibly be that you missed how wrong their dire and panicked reporting on the situation in New Orleans during Katrina was? How could it be that you've completely missed the fact that the media continues to report the Plame incident like Karl Rove outed an undercover CIA agent when that obviously is not the case? The media isn't searching for solutions. They are dedicated to convincing the world that Bush and the United States are THE sources of evil and misery in the world. Have you noticed the scant coverage on the Muslim riots in Europe. They've been going on for over a week now. It's chaos. Compare the coverage of those riots to the coverage of Katrina. Within 5 days of one of the worst natural disasters to hit this country in its history, an entire city of several million was completely evacuated with very few deaths despite the fact that the mayor and governor were criminally incompetent. Yet, in those 5 days of wall to wall coverage, George Bush and the United States were held up as completely incompetent and worse than a third world nation with regard to disaster response. We were told we are lead by a "racist" government that purposely slowed rescue efforts in order to kill black people. We were all declared guilty of neglect and abandonment by a media bent on convincing the world the US is bad. And now, after 9 straight days of religious rioting that is spreading throughout Europe, our media is just starting to question whether or not it might be a sign of deeper problems in the Utopia known as Europe. "Action to solve problems" Good Grief.

If you truly believe what you stated in the comment above, there is no point in responding to any of your other comments, because your fundamental grasp of reality is so flawed it is almost beyond repair.
