Liberal Media My Ass

Here are some interesting #s that my friend Owen showed me from the blog Mobtown Shank. I’ve been saying this for years, but now it is backed. The term Liberal Media is a joke.

This analysis from the Center for American Progress:

Additional income from McCain’s proposed tax cut: $25 million

    From “The Center for American Progress?” Could they have an agenda, perhaps? These are all speculative numbers, anyways. You can’t honestly be citing these fictional numbers to prove that stations like CNN (why omitted?) or NBC offer unbiased election coverage…

    oldnil, The Center for American Progress has a website so anyone can inform themselves on who they are (http://www.americanprogress.org/aboutus). You overlooked that Time Warner owns CNN so he is not omitting that. If you watched the 2nd debate, both candidates spoke of McCain’s tax cuts for these corporations. C.A.P. did the math.
