CBS News is corporate media CRAP !! Join me in complaining.
I've had it with these rotten corporate media slimebags. The bias is SICKENING !! Obama blew Clinton away today thereby shredding all claims of her "great week" and "momentum," and CBS news barely mentions that or his big win today, and instead spends the whole spot AGAIN slamming Obama and talking about "all the ways he had such a bad week." (Even though he blew her away in Vermont, gained considerable ground in OH, damn near beat her in the primary in TX and DID win the caucus there, and then beat the crap out of her in WY.) They have been doing it over and over and over again. The bias has been so OBVIOUS you can see it a mile away at midnight. Do they think we're this dumb?? I at least went to their website, down to the "Contact Us" tab at the far bottom, and wrote in a complaint on their email form. Can't hurt. If anyone else wants to join the effort, small as it may be, I urge you to go to http://www.cbsnews.com / and do so. Thanks. (Or complain to any other of these corporate media slimebag networks.)

2. Its exactly the same on all the stations. The TPMs must have gone
out from WAY HIGH UP.. because they're all repeating the "Obama is losing, bad week, Hillary is a fighter", the SDs will pick a fighter, meme.

4. We are the media now. They cannot stop this train. Obama is on a roll
all grass-roots and he brings the largest crowds to him like we haven't seen in years. Don't worry he will win. The people have chosen him and the corporate media is a dinosaur that is less relevant everyday.

7. The corporate media is lazy. I find it astonishing that nobody had reporters on the ground...
to cover this caucus in Wyoming for a campaign that is a horse race. And now all of the corportate media want to diminish Obama's win in Wyoming. The media just reinforce their image as elitist when they discount the vote of good old regular Americans just like you and me and the people of Wyoming. I say, "Hey media, corporate or not, do your fucking job, report the feelings of real people and admit that there are people like me, who want to destroy the politics of old!"

10. You just figured this out?
I knew this when the Smothers Brothers show was canceled decades ago when the network wouldn't abide by their anti-war stance.

12. Wyoming has fewer people than many Ohio counties.
It's not significant and I'd say that right to someone from Wyoming.

17. Hey a lot of those are significant.
Georgia, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Alabama, Minnesota, Colorado, etc. It's just that Wyoming is an unusually puny state.

14. Well, Obama was given a free-ride for weeks...
now the media are starting to get tough with him and you want to complain??? When Clinton supporters said the same things weeks ago, they were called whiners and crybabies. Sounds like sour grapes to me.

16. I don't watch...
but from what I read, they are not getting tough, they are just ignoring the facts. But, that is what they do.

19. It's a two-fer. They get to keep the Dem race going,
generating interest and most of all--RATINGS. Which equals dollars.

Then once they have gotten Clinton the nomination by muzzling the succeses of the Obama campaign, they roll over her with pro-McCain coverage guaranteeing us a GOP president which will make the corporate masters happy.

24. You know what...
If you can't take the heat...

Then get out of the kitchen...

The press is going to go after Obama eventually...

They are going to do their thing and you can't let it stand in your way...

Look what they did to Gore in 2000...

The media will pound on Obama so it's best he get use to it now before he has to learn when they start fawning all over McCain again...
