"Ex-CBS reporter's book reveals how liberal media protects Obama"

Not that this is anything we were unaware of, but Sharryl Attkinson spells it out very clearly, in infuriating detail.

And this article, Obama's post-election plans for a secret radical agenda, should be required reading for the entire electorate.

Don't conservative led media outlets do the same thing and bury stories that aren't favourable to stuff they like...?

Or are most media outlets liberal?

Steven --
The vast majority of "mainstream" media outlets are liberal. The only major conservative ones are owned by Rupert Murdoch's NewsCorp (the Wall Street Journal and Fox). The Washington Post, which has traditionally been another liberal paper, is now owned by Jeff Bezos, of Amazon, but so far I haven't heard that it's changed much.

I see, so do most conservatives watch Fox? I get the impression its propagandistic and not pitched at an intelligent level...?? I haven't seen much of it, just clips on youtube. I know liberals F***ing hate it. Which might not be a terrible thing.

The impression you've gotten about Fox being noting but propaganda is the one the liberals have tried very had to impart. But the fact is, they hate Fox because it's the only dissenting voice on TV, and they're frustrated that they don't have complete monopoly. Plus, it's just the liberals's nature to hate those who disagree with them.

(You never hear a conservative say, "oh, I could never have a friend who's a liberal." But you hear liberals say that about conservatives quite frequently.)

To be fair, Steven, Fox is propagandistic and not pitched at an intelligent audience, but no more so than most other major news media outlets. If you are the kind of person who spends a Sunday evening reading blogs because you want to find some surprising, fresh new ideas you never thought of before, TV news is going to feel a little patronizing.

John, just discovered your blog this week via a Luke Ford link. I'm definitely going to stick around. I like the articles on sociopaths. I read The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout a few weeks ago as an impulse purchase and ever since I've been trying to pick out which celebrities and acquaintances fit the bill.

Jokah --
Thank you. There're certainly no shortage of sociopaths -- celebrated and otherwise -- to write about. I've almost gotten to the point where it feels as if I'm saying the same thing about all of them, and being repetitious. But I'll try to keep them coming.

If you type "sociopath alert" into the subject bar of this blog (the two thin lines toward the top) you'll find a lot of my past posts on the subject. Type in "prison pen pals" and you'll find more.

Tomorrow, I won't vote for any Democrats.

Hopefully, the majority of people feel like you.
