More Bias From Those In Journalism

They don't really think they are biased or partisan.

Watching two people - one female and one male - who have co-authored a book on the financial crisis as they are interviewed, the female said they have no bias, no partisan stances, they are simply journalists reporting on the facts.

Which was kind of funny since the male began the interview by stating he felt a little weird that he was in "enemy territory", being as he was in a FOX Business Channel studio. He writes for The New York Times, you see, so he had to get the FOX bash out as the first words he uttered. Nice.

Just a journalist. Just reporting on the facts.

This comes on a day when this article appears online. There will be much bellowing from liberal parlors over that interview. The same liberal reporters who turn a blind eye to the bias of President Obama using the top guy at alphabet networks on advisory councils and traveling with them on junkets will have plenty to say about FOX News' Ailes giving his opinion.

"The president has not been very successful,”Ailes told The Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz. “He just got kicked from Mumbai to South Korea, and he came home and attacked Republicans for it. He had to be told by the French and the Germans that his socialism was too far left for them to deal with."
"He just has a different belief system than most Americans," Ailes added.

The article's title screams that Ailes says Obama is a failed socialist. That is clearly not a quote from the article. Ailes mentions Obama's "socialism" and belief system. Hardly breaking news. Nor is Ailes statement different than that of millions of Americans. In a right of center country, far left ideologues governing with their political philosophy borne out of life experiences creates a different belief system than the rest of Americans. It's truthful and therefore the Obamatrons in the press will have none of it. The opportunity was taken to twist the headline for attention.

Just reporting, right?

And, Barbara Walters, interviewing President Obama. What a train wreck. We remember the slobbering over him by the chicks on The View as a candidate and then as President. She wanted to give him more than one chance to belittle Sarah Palin, who recently said she thinks she could beat him if she chooses to run for President. He, to his credit, chose to side step the question. In her world, it is unthinkable that someone like Palin would dare to challenge Obama and be taken seriously.
