Romney's dog

    New York Times writer Gail Seamus wrote about Romney's dog in 56 different articles. The Times however has never mentioned the fact that Obama ate a dog.

    A little media bias? I think so.

      I've seen it mentioned on other media outlets numerous times.  But he ate it while a kid.  Why does it even matter at all?  This is your example of media bias?

    Obama was given dog meat to eat as a child, he wrote about it. He didn't like it. What else is there to say?

    Whatever, the dog story has jumped the shark.

    Desparate much?

      Finally, something I can agree with Obama on. Dog meat is a little stringy.

      Anything to play the victims. Oh Poor Poor Mitt--with Citizens United paving the way for a 250 million $ barrage of Obama-Hate. Poor poor republicans.

      Glenn Beck I need your vial of crocodile tears!

    The proportion probably relates to Mit being an adult at the time. But seriously, who cares.

      Precisely. The subject is frivolous, yet the New York Times feels the need to mention it 56 times about Romney, and says nothing about Obama.

        The fact Onusonus you're missing is that it's not NEWS worthy to begin with so that should tell you something about the New York Times paper. Nevermind the bias of the reported NEWS, this bias has been there ever since Newspapers were invented..

        If it matter that much to you, then why don't you start your own Newspaper and then put New York Times out of business? I'm sure your answer, so don't bother.

        Not 'precisely', I said why I thought one received more mention than the other.  And not caring involves not caring if it is mentioned or not.

        I would have thought you would quit reading such stories after the 40th one or so.  Are you addicted to the NYT?
