Seriously, this is just stunning to me. The media have become a bunch of high school sophomore kids plotting against the popular kids.

Here’s the thing, these people aren’t just biased to the left, they are incredibly stupid people. I believe this kind of reporting, coming from NBC and CBS is actually not so much an indictment of the liberal bias, but the absolute failure of public education from K-12 right through the university system. These people are simply not that bright.

Unfortunately the First Amendment grants them the right to be as stupid and corrupt as they want.

If you have kids, you know that the bad behavior doesn’t stop until there are serious enough consequences to make it stop.

Is there any doubt the media is guilty of misinforming the American public? there’s too much proof to dispute this any longer. Obama “broke it, he owns it”.

Republicans need to start being more selective about who they give statements and interviews to.

Cut these partisan democrat "journalists" off and get your information out through friendly, or at least impartial, channels.

The leftist "journalists" will probably be fine with it. Then they can publish their lies without ever having to leave their desks.

Hmmmmm. The thought ‘absent malice’ comes to mind.

We’re in lawsuit territory. And RICO.

"These people are simply not that bright"

And they are in charge. What does that say about the smart guys?

I used to love it when Ronald W. Reagan recognized reporters from “Human Events” and other conservative orientated newsletters and publications at press conferences. It drove the liberal media types crazy.

At what point does this idiocy become a crime?

More correctly: at what point does the GOP's craven and continued abetment of the MSM's calculated treacheries become, in and of itself, a crime?

CBS reporter(s) have been positively identified, on audio, as attempting to coolly manipulate the outcome of a national election. Both the Romney campaign and the GOP should immediately institute a full and thorough ban of any/all contact with said network -- including any debate(s) they might happen to sponsor -- all the way through Election Day.

Anything less serves as knowing and de facto condoning of their actions, either to greater or lesser degree.

When you add words to the title, the standard netiquette is to put your words in parentheses.

CBS News NYC phone number: 212-975-4321

They’ll probably be gone now, it is after 5 o’clock here (well they’ll be there, but I doubt the phone will be answered), but they’ll be in tomorrow.

The media is the enemy.

“These people are simply not that bright.”

Oh ...you have NO idea...

Well, actually I’m sure you do but believe me. As stupid as you think the majority of these people are, it’s far worse.

I once argued with a fellow media type that 1+1+2. He literally invoked quantum physics to ‘prove’ that it could equal 3 or some other number depending on the situation.

That man is now an aide for a Penn. dem politician.

To all

The only Constitutional way to fight back is to NOT BUY THEIR PRODUCT!
Do not subscribe to any national news magazines
Do not subscribe to any of the local, regional or national newspapers (Particularly since many of the locals are now own by national publishing houses,)
Turn off the tube !
Read, walk exercise do something besides stare at the idiot box but turn off the tube!
Ask your cable company or satellite provider to block CNN, MSNBC, etc, tell them if they can block porn channels to your set they can block these!. They will of course refuse and give you excuses but word will get back to MSMs and it will increase the financial pressure.
You can get entertainment from video stores, Red Box, Hulu, own video collections, etc.
Again if we don't buy their product they won't last!
This includes Fox!

Joseph Goebbels is smiling on Baraq and his gang of Chicago criminals. Maybe the 1st Amendment needs amending.....just saying.

Goebbels would have envied Obama having our media under his thumb like it is.

:::::::::::::::::::::

They are useless. And they have made a very bad choice of political alignment that brought the end to objective journalism which once flourished in America, as investigative journalism interested in investigation of, and exposure of, THE TRUTH independent of political alignment. Providing the truth to Americans was their product.

The truth did matter at one time. All gone now.

I'm fantasizing about President Palin calling on "the gentleman from Free Republic..."

I had always assumed they did this to greater or lesser degree.

Given the nature of leftists is to conspire against those they hate and want to injure and considering that most journalists are hard core leftists, I always assumed as fact that they worked in concert to create or manipulate a particular slant or outcome of a story.

I’m only surprised it took this long for proof to come floating to the surface of the fetid mire that is the main stream media.

The corporate charter of these news outlets all contain high- sounding phrases about operating for the public welfare, etc. They should all lose their license!

If it were I, I’d inform cbs that based on the audio that Cbs is not a impartial organization and as such should not be moderating any Presidential debate and I will not participate in any that they do moderate!
