Objecting to Andrea Mitchell's incredible bias on the Biden incident.

I saw her "report" yesterday and it was jaw-dropping (as usual). She mentioned one sentence that was not the essence of the warning that he gave, then said BHO has a spine of steel, which may have been in Biden's remarks but I didn't see it.

Andrea sets the bar for making excuses for any and all Democrats. She (and the rest of the MSM) has become unwatchable.

It isn't only this incident!! I hear this stuff all the time. I just now heard “one campaign talking about the economy, the other...........baseball?” Oh yes, McCain is speaking on the campaign trail, about baseball, while of course That one, is discussing real issues! That is exactly what the news update means. And of course, as usual it isn't true.

I’m with Rudy....Biden knows something an if he does...Biden owes it to the puplic to disclose why he would say this!!

Biden needs to come clean with America!

What does Biden know? Remember they are getting briefed.

Andrea looks like the Joker’s first wife(after).
My independent mostly liberal wife is fed up finally with the MSM..even she can’t believe the bias. She doesn’t like Bush..but she is voting for McCain.
When they loose people like her..then you know that they have gone way overboard. Their coverage helped her decided that she really couldn’t believe Zero..if he needed that much help. Plus she is from Chicago and understands that no Chicago politician is qualified to be President due to the culture of curruption. Her family is Sicilian..embedded in Chicago..so she ought to know.

Sorry, I don’t see a printed version to link yet. McCain campaign objecting to incomplete, biased reporting from NBC on last night’s news about the Biden comments warning an Obama presidency will be tested with an international crisis in 6 months. That is, Andrea Mitchell totally glossed over it with a sentence or two, then got in her “spine of steel” quote. Is that more clear?

Can’t watch lame stream media because they lie, difficult watching Fox News because they tell mostly truth.

I’m going to take Rush’s advise today.
No more news untill after the election.
I can’t stand to listen to any of them anymore, especially CNN, MSNBC and even Fox, since they seem to keep wanting to bring on every Democrat I can’t stand look at.

I don’t think can use the words “Chicago politician” enough to describe how devastating it would be to vote for Zero. It does create the right image!

Television’s talking heads have produced blowback through biased reporting. And I’d imagine we’ve picked up more than a few new voters for the GOP.

What's amazing is they keep setting new lows. The latest? They are peeing in their pants praising Obama's move to suspend his campaign to visit his Grandmother, how Presidential it is, how it will "cinch" the election...blah, blah and more bias.

My wife, a person who really didn't detect or notice the liberal bias in the past now can't stop complaining about the liberal bias. If she noticed, so did millions, and if she is bothered, so are millions of others.

I'm glad he at least called them out, but it won't do any good. It's not just FR now; mainstream Republicans are now more fully aware of the bias.

I can take negative press about my candidates if they were only fair and reported the negatives on the other side.

I was thinking about "proud" Democrats today. Are we supposed to be on a perpectual guilt trip and feel crummy about our party (which doesn't totally represent me).

When I talk to the few people I do, I'm open about the negatives on our side, like McCain's marriage & wife, etc. I have to weigh the pros and cons. Why can't they be fair about it on their side.

These people are all just so reality challenged it isn’t even amusing anymore. And fox gets no pass from me. I have heard the rally speeches they are discussing in these announcer bites. Both mentioning baseball, both addressing their views on economy. TOTAL lie to say otherwise.

Seems somewhere there must bre rational demorats who hear this too, and question their allegiance to the one because of it.

I’ll turn it on for a sporting event. I have a few audio books that are waiting also.

I never watch MSNBC any more, and barely watch Fox, except when Hannity is on, and that is limited as well depending which guests are on. I, too, feel so much better. I turn on some little lighthearted comedy or watch Jeopardy, and my blood pressure just goes way down.

I can’t even watch Hannity any more because Colmes is such an idiot. When it’s his turn to interview someone he’s always interupting them and doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

FOX is a NEWS channel, they are not a talk show on video. McCain makes news and Obama makes news, and they report BOTH.

Hannity and O’Reilly and Greta although they are not strictly NEWS, still have to bring both sides of the issue, if they don’t it will no longer be a NEWS channel.

The rest of the MSM has turned the idea of news upside down, but FOX has tried to remain a traditional news channel.

Being a news channel affords them access to all kinds of people and places. It gives them the ability to investigate things that others cannot.

I don’t like seeing a lot of the democrats that are on FOX, but they ARE news weather you like them or not and knowing your enemy is the first rule in defending him.

I really get tired of seeing people bash Fox when the reality is they are one of the best friends we have. I cannot count the number of times that without Fox we would be in the dark.

And these recent things that have come up. Do you think it was MSNBC that captured the video with Obama and Joe? If it had been, no one would have ever seen it. And the recent gaff by Obama, who do you think captured that audio, CBS? I very much doubt it.

Just my two cents.

Biden knows exactly what Billary have told him to say and do. What better way to make it more difficult for that one to win than to bring foreign policy late to the dance, AND, to have him called a security threat by his own running mate?

I have zero faith in the media’s objectivity, but I was utterly shocked at Andrea Mitchell playing edited portions of the Biden comments. The whole controversy is about the “generated crisis” portion, and they play an entirely different (and pro-Obama) portion. When called on why they didn’t play the relevant portion by the McCain spokesperson, she feigned ignorance and added, sarcastically, something like: “What? the part about Obama having steel in his spine?” If you haven’t seen it, you’ve got to find the clip. It is truly astounding! Astounding bias!

Heard it on Rush today.
It wasn’t just what she said, but “how” she said it.

The tone of her voice and combativeness she showed.

Amazing.

Shaking my head that her hubby was in charge of the Fed.

But looking back - it sure explains alot.

I don’t watch them anymore either. And I canceled my newspaper 10 years ago. I am sad about it. I may be better for it, but still sad that I can’t get real news about real issues from American media.

Can you believe we are less than 2 weeks from electing the leader of the free world, leader of NATO, leader of the United Nations, leader of the IMF, leader of NAFTA, leader of the G8, leader of the WTO, leader of international monetary police, leader of armed forces stationed in scores of countries, commander in chief of 2 wars...

... and they are giving us nothing but drivel.
