So I was watching my buddy Chuck on his morning show this morning and then tuned into MSNBC and noticed a trend that always fascinated me and I was wondering if others noticed this obvious bias.



Have you ever wondered why these shows always ask Liberals and Democrats opinions regarding Republicans and Mitt Romney? I mean, why don't they ask some Republicans what they think?



Then when they are talking about Obama or Democrats, they ask the same Liberals and Democrats for their opinions. I mean, why don't they ask some Republicans what they think?



My opinion is that they don't care what Republicans or Conservatives think. They have abandoned objectivity and now expose the truth and reality that they aren't interested in objectivity or the facts. They merely want to promote a Liberal Progressive agenda which they think IS the mainstream ideology and anything outside of that is FAR right.



In their minds the argument that Government is too big, the deficit is too large and we have too much debt is radical. Of course that is only when THEIR politicians are the "DECIDERS," if it is the OTHER guys, then these things are out of control and unacceptable.

Watching T.V. to get good information is like going to McDonald's expecting a nutritious meal.



Read, or listen to the radio -- specifically, NPR or BBC.



I would avoid talk radio -- as going to talk radio seeking knowledge is like drinking bongwater to quench your thirst.

Then there's this phenomenon. If Ds say now what these Rs said then about Romney, now the Rs will say the Ds are waging a dirty campaign.

Partisan politics is, as my Old Man used to say, a pissing contest between skunks.

NPR is ultra liberal, but in a sneaky way. I'll spare everyone the details since it's only my opinion, but I have lots and lots of eamples to prove my point.



But I listen the them occasionally, just as I do other liberal outlets. And every once in awhile they really surprise me and put out a really well done, comprehensive story that provides all the details. Yes, itís rare, but it does happen. Damn shame they can do that on a regular basis.

MSNBc has republicans or conservative commentators on just about every show.

I believe in having multiple outlets; radio, TV, talk shows, news papers etc. Why is it you would presume that the only place I get my information would be TV?



Now as to the typical American; where do you think they get most of their information and spend most of their time? That is the reason for the thread's premise.

This is a fascinating claim; albiet off topic to the thread. But what I find fascinating is that soldiers cannot be allowed to have a political opinion.



Of course when Bush was Commander and Chief, it was patriotic to insult the President.

Now back to the thread premise; do you watch a lot of talk shows on MSNBC and CNN? Haven't you ever wondered why they always ask Liberals for the opinions on Republicans but seldom if ever ask Republicans for their opinions on Liberals?
