• I was talking to my "liberal" husband the other night about politics "cringe" while watching the primaries & we both agreed (unusual for us when discussing politics) that it would be a good thing if the media was placed under a gag order until the day after the election.  No more predicting, slanting, skewing,etc...facts only, on election night.  I don't think 12 million illegal voters & 300,000 dead Illonoisians? couldn't throw an election as well as the news media.  It is obvious ,with all of the channels, who they support.  If a majority of the voting public makes their decision based on what they see on & in the news & the news media knows this, then they are going to print & air at their discrimination (what suits them) instead of being unbiased.  Our news media (all of them)  are drunk with power & not afraid to use it!

  • I also don't see McCain as a classic Republican.  He is more in line with Independents these days which is not necessarily a bad thing.  The media needs to lay off the "racist" , "sexist" issues.  I have yet to hear from either Obama or Clinton that would fall into those categories.  This is why I dislike "main stream media".
