Media Research Center 25th Gala a graphic reminder: media bias to cast Romney as loser.
(Page 2 of 6)
“This guy’s done everything right. He’s raised his family right. He’s fought his way all the way to the top of the Harvard Law Review, in a blind test becomes head of the Review, the top editor there. Everything he’s done is clean as a whistle. He’s never not only broken any law, he’s never done anything wrong. He’s the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American. And all they do is trash the guy.”
Matthews, by the way, was already famously on record as saying:
“I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama’s speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often.”
But not to be left out were CNN’s Morgan and ABC’s Sawyer.
Here’s Morgan on Obama to Obama aide David Axelrod from Morgan’s December 5, 2011 CNN show:
“When you watch the President like that, I always feel he’s got so many pluses, doesn’t he? In a sense, he’s personable, he’s handsome, he can be funny. You know, abroad he has this great image for America. A lot of things are just perfect about Barack Obama.”
And here’s ABC’s Sawyer on October 10, 20122 waxing enthusiastic about the Obama-endorsed Occupy Wall Street movement:
“We thought we’d bring you up to date on those protesters, the Occupy Wall Street movement. As of tonight, it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries — every continent but Antarctica.”
Get that? The Occupy Wall Street movement is so fabulous it has spread to 1,000 countries around the world! Wow! Incredible! Particularly considering that — taking into account the usual wars and border disputes — there are only about 190-250 countries on all of Planet Earth, give or take.
Also, take note of the 2009 video collection found on the above link, with various reporters waxing on enthusiastically about everything from the socialism of the Soviet Union (from a Ted Turner special on TBS before the Evil Empire was tipped into the abyss by Ronald Reagan) to Cuba’s Castro to Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega. The gushing over both Clintons. Nancy Pelosi. And the must see of media figures comparing Obama to the “messiah” and — yes indeed — God.
Next up was the cheeky “Vast Right-Wing Knuckle-Draggers Award” (linked here).
The three nominees were selected based on the degree of contempt these media pooh-bahs expressed on-air for conservatives.
The winner was NBC’s daytime anchor Thomas Roberts for this gem on September 23, 2011. What was Roberts discussing when he said what follows about — that’s right — the previous night’s debate featuring the various Republican presidential candidates, Mitt Romney prominently included? Here’s how Roberts did his bit:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
