CMV:The American media has a strong bias in favor of the Democratic party. Furthermore, Democrats get away with a lot more than Republicans.

Although Obama's approval ratings are rebounding, they were at one time just as low as they were for George W. Bush. The media gave Bush's low approval ratings five times more attention than they did for when the approval ratings were the same level for his Democratic successor.


Not even close, mi compadre.

Going back a little further, does anyone remember when Trent Lott was forced to step down as speaker of the house for congratulating Strom Thurmond on his 99th birthday?

No. That's not what happened. Here is the actual quote.

“When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We’re proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn’t have had all these problems over the years, either.”

In order words, he said that the USA would be better off if we'd elected a segregrationist. Do you see the difference between that and "congratulating [Thurmond] on his birthday?"

Benghazi scandal These are atrocities and would have been fully recognized had they happened under Bush.

Here is the House Select Intelligence Committee's findings of your so-called 'atrocity'. In it, we find the following quote, one of many:

"The Committee first concludes that the CIA ensured sufficient security for CIA facilities in Benghazi....Appropriate U.S. personnel made reasonable tactical decisions that night, and the Committee found no evidence that there was either a stand down order or a denial of available air support...."

Back to your quotes.

Fox News is ostracized because they are the exception. Personally, I'd rather watch Fox over MSNBC any day.

Fox News is 'ostracized' because it does a poor job reporting the news. That might be why its watchers are less informed than people who don't watch any news at all.

edit: I also forgot to mention that five times as many journalists identify as liberal than conservative.

What...? Source?
