Poll Says: Media Sux. Next Question?

Rasmussen is about the only poll out there untouched by MSM leftist infectedness. Over 80% of those questioned across the board believe that the media is tilting one way or the other.

Which way depends on which media and your own perspective, but in 2006, a three-year study of twenty years of media coverage by the very respected journalism schools at UCLA & U. of Missouri concluded that the American media leans heavily in favor of Democrats, liberalism, and perspectives giving an advantage to left-wing perceptions of class warfare, poor being taken advantage of unfairly, conspiracies by powerful vested interests. Perhaps this could have some merit if the powerful interests pinpointed by the MSM were evenly distributed among the two major political parties.

Alas, the American networks, most cable news, a majority of newspapers and even the blogosphere tend to perceive the lion's share of the misuse of power in the Republican lobbyists and their nefarious manipulations of gullible politicians. FYI, I am copying an e-mail sent to me by a concerned citizen for your perusal:

Remember the election in 2006?
Thought you might like to read the following:
A little over one year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.

Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:

1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!

Remember it's Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with what's handed to him.

Quote of the Day........"My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it." -- Barack Obama

Part 2:
Taxes...Whether Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics enlightening and amazing.
Taxes under Clinton 1999 Taxes under Bush 2008
Single making 30K - tax $8,400 Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $14,000 Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $23,250 Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K - tax $16,800 Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $21,000 Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $38,750 Married making 125K - tax $31,250

Both democratic candidates will return to the higher tax rates

It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie "The Sting" with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened.

You think the war in Iraq is costing us too much?
Read this:
Boy am I confused. I have been hammered with the propaganda that it is the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us. I now find that to be RIDICULOUS. I hope the following 14 reasons are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them. I have included the URL's for verification of all the following facts.

Barbara Boxer is the Chief Nurse in the Dem Cuckoo's Nest. The Senate narrowly averted her hare-brained insane windfall profits tax fiasco from being included into an overall tax bill that would add trillions to American taxes.

She herself is a total loon, but many apparently semi-sane democrats are ready to follow this hormonally hyper lemming over the cliff---and if BHO is elected in '08---watch out!!!

Lil Johnny Mack thinks he can be bipartisan and sing in the Dem key without learning all the words.

Fuhgeddabouddit!! They will steal this country and every viable economic enterprises profits to a level that will equal EUtopia and its mandarin EUnuchate of Brussels faceless functionaries' plateau of economic stagnation.
