CNN and Fox are trying soooo hard to minimize the
sweep Obama is winning by in WY. "The biggest counties haven't even closed yet"..."She can still pull this out."...They don't even try anymore to conceal their bias. It's difficult to watch the news anymore, I long for the days when you had no personal editorializing, just reporting. 70% of the votes are in, with Obama leading 58%, HRC at 41%.

They still want you to wonder where the 12 delegates will go..Unbelievable.

1. GOOD! Let them act as if there is still a chance for her to win.
Then when she loses, it'll be harder to down play Obama's victory!

3. Wolf Will Simply Blame It On The "Ugly Slur" From The Obama
camp. Hillary has been slandered with the MONSTER label. :rofl:

19. Because a "Starr" trumps a "Monster"?
What the heck? Hillary is a two-faced, wanna-be. n/t

8. Why would you expect less from TimeWarner, who has consistently been a corporate backer of Clinton?
Follow the money...also remember that Faux's Murdock threw a little fund raising party for our little Faux Dem / DLCer early in the election season.

15. I do not think he is disappointed in winning more delegates and
he was +12 to her in delegates for last week after losing Ohio and RI.

5. Their job is to create an exciting sotry, not to inform you.
If it were going the other way, they'd probably do the same thing.

Good to hear Obama is doing well. :)

14. I don't know about bias but the press sure is lazy
I don't know how many times I've seen them let their interview subjects
(of every political persuasion) just blather on with whatever talking point is on their agenda.
Meanwhile the only thought these "journalists" can muster is "uh huh, uh huh, uh huh..."
Now I'm all for letting people hang themselves with their own talking points
but at some point, if you're going to call yourself a journalist (and not a microphone holder)
you have to confront the bullshit and say "hold on just a gall-dangin' minute there... Hillary !" : - ))

17. Two reasons for this
1-Hillary is the DLC/GOP approved candidate for the GE
2-MSM is owned by the GOP
and oh yes, finally
3-RATINGS

It's to their benefit, with the huge gains in ratings they've gotten this election cycle, to use a term, "pimp this out" as long as they can.
Make it seem like a real contest when it's all over but the crying (Hillary's and Bill's). Ha ha. We'll get the last laugh Obama supporters!

20. CNN hasn't projected Obama as the winner yet, with 80% in anad a 19 point lead
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 03:44 PM by Levgreee
it seems they are putting it off as long as possible, so it doesn't seem like he clinched it with so little in(which he had done probably with 60% left).

21. I've already sent an email to CNN today. I intend to do this every day
until we start to see a change in their reporting. I encourage everyone else here to do the same. Point out the areas of bias you see. Be specific. Talk about a specific time period and what you saw. They have to be forced into doing the right thing.

23. .. and say that this and any further clearly biased reporting will be used against you,
when a new Fairness Doctrine is enacted the incoming Democratic administration.

22. Just shoot me now...
AARRGGHHHH....CNN reporter: "Can what happened here in Wyoming help Obama, uh, I don't want to say, take the election back out of Clinton's hands, but will it get help him get the momumentum BACK".


He never fucking LOST the momentum, idiot...


And, amazing, the anchor is actually using the phrase "Texas two step" (trying to compare it to the Wyoming system) over and over today...you know, the phrase that they seemed to FORGET about over the last 4 days when they were spinning a HRC win in TX.
