Do Americans realize that there are just as many, and perhaps more media outlets leaning to the Far Right as there are that could be considered "Liberal?" Forbes Magazine is hardly a liberal publication. Fox News is hardly "Fair and Balanced" when it comes to "liberal" policies. The Wall Street Journal is a pro-business conservative publication. So is The Drudge Report. Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. Ann Coulter and Laura Ingle. Shall I go on? Seems the Right loves to blast the "Mainstream Media" whenever it can, but never seems to realize the obvious hypocrisy in making these claims. Conservatives are represented more than Liberals on talk radio and certainly have their niche in television news and "infotainment." This claim that all polling by anyone other than Rasmussen is liberally biased and without any merit is in of itself, disingenuous. So when you see polling indicating Obama is beginning to open up a lead against Romney with Woman, Latinos and Blacks, take note. The Conservatives are quick to roll out the "Bias Card," but act surprised when those groups of Americans actually vote with their self-interests and not against them. If there is one thing this election may be able to do, it will be to finally communicate to Right Wing Media that those on the Left and in the Middle are tired of their rantings, ravings and hallucinations.
