Where is this "liberal media"?

Original post made by Concerned Citizen, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Sep 7, 2008

So, Joe Lieberman who hasn't been a Democrat for years is touted over and over again in the press as being a Democrat cross over for McCain, but you don't hear word one about the numerous staunch Republicans who spoke in favor of Obama at the Democratic Convention (a Republican former Congressman gave a stirring speech for Obama, several ordinary folk who have voted Republican all their lives but support Obama got up in front of those huge crowds to explain why, a long line up of Admirals and Generals stood up for Obama, and even the daughter of President Eisenhower, a staunch Republican her whole life, announced Obama's acceptance speech). (Hey, I liked Ike, and I like Obama, too! Did the media even notice?)

So, concerned citizen, you liked Ike? So did Hornsby. If Ike had not threatened to go to war against England, France and Israel opposing their attempt to retain their right to the Suez Canal they had built, perhaps middle Eastern countries would have continued to honor their contractual obligations.

Why is the liberal media giving Palin such an easy time, it is clear that she cannot draw a crowd, look at this paltry audience for her speech in Colorado Springs, she got a big an audience at a small town mayor at a minor council meeting look here Web Link

Compare the news treatment of the Dan Quayle potatoe slip with Carter's "Hubert Horatio Hornblower" blunder and come back with your question.

Walter--Carter's gaffe was getting a name mixed up (I am sure you have never done that ), while Quayle could not spell a simple word. Big difference between the two. Also news coverage has changed much int last few decades
