Poll: Voters Say Media Bias a Big Problem in Elections

I'm sure this poll from Rasmussen is no surprise to anyone (except to the "mainstream" media themselves).

Rasmussen found that

55% believe media bias is more of a problem than big campaign contributions. Thirty-six percent (36%) disagree and think that campaign cash is a bigger problem.

When presented with the proposition of banning campaign commercials (which is the kind of thing liberals and incumbents love to tout)
Sixty-six percent (66%) disagree and think that, despite the annoyance factor, it’s better to put up with an election-year barrage of advertising rather than rely on the news media.

So people would rather watch obviously biased campaign commercials and make up their own minds, than watch disguised bias in news coverage that attempts to subliminally sway their opinion toward that of the "mainstream" reporter.

No wonder "mainstream" newspaper readership is tanking, and they call the "mainstream" media the "dinosaur media."

In this day and age of alternatives, most people would rather think for themselves than subject themselves to a dose of disguised propaganda.

There's something encouraging in that.

Many bloggers are describing how CNN rejected their postings about Obama's socialism ... even though it was in Obama's own words. I have experienced similar censorship from CNN, as well as other biased media outlets. If Obama gets elected, and this great country declines into socialism, it will be the corrupt and biased media who will bear much of the responsibility. Free enterprise, opportunity, and the standard of living in the United States, are some of the reasons why people from all over the world risk life and limb to move here. A fair media is paramount to a free society. The media never vetted Obama. Now the momentum of his campaign and fund raising has made it very hard to stop his 'run away train". If Americans had known half the stuff we now know about Obama, he would never have gotten this far ... and, there is a lot we still don't know about Obama! For example ... are hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions that are helping him get elected, originally from foreign sources? Is his birth certificate authentic? The media's willful decision to grossly favor one side, and refuse to report the truth, is evil and betrays their responsibility to the American people. In my opinion the media's actions, and inactions in this situation amount to criminal behavior. Who are the media accountable to?
