By Nearly 8-1, Voters Say Journalists Want Obama to Win
Newsbusters ^ | October 23, 2008 | Brent Baker

“Voters overwhelmingly believe that the media wants Barack Obama to win the presidential election,” a Pew Research Center for the People and the Press survey released Wednesday discovered. Specifically: “By a margin of 70%-9%, Americans say most journalists want to see Obama, not John McCain, win on Nov. 4. Another 8% say journalists don't favor either candidate, and 13% say they don't know which candidate most reporters support.”

The question (PDF of questionnaire): “Who do you think most newspaper reporters and TV journalists want to see win the presidential election -- Barack Obama or John McCain?” Unsurprisingly, 90 percent of Republicans recognized how journalists hope Obama is victorious, yet so do 62 percent of Democrats and independents.

I pray we get to see a total media meltdown on election night when they realize O won’t be President.

Pretty amazing 70 to 9 in a very left leaning poll.

Guess that kinda makes it less of a right-wing delusion and more just the reality of the situation. And the reality is brutal.

And still nearly half the voters will still vote FOR the media's candidate. Go figure!

In 94 the MSM called the election a “temper tantrum.” I wonder what they’ll say when the ONE goes down in flames?

Interesting that we've not heard the rhetoric of 2006 where the RATS
bolstered about taking the House and Senate before the election.
Hmmm.

>>Voters Say Journalists Want Obama to Win

(”When I’m 64”)
Barack Obama, he’s such a dope
Running for the prez
Says that he’s campaigned in 57 states
Chose Joe Biden—thought he was great
Media loves him, wants him to win
Olby’s such a fan
Don’t wanna meet him—can we defeat him?
I say, yes, we can!

So 30% of people don't have any access to the media, are liars, or are really dumb. Im surprised they knew how to use a phone.

Yet the other oddity is that MSNBC was the only one to donate more to Republicans than to Democrats in that small amount of campaign donations they gave out according to that chart.
