NBC news, strikes bias in the hearts of listeners

Updated on October 31, 2008

Let's not blame Brian, because we all know that, aside from his appearance on SNL, he's just a "talking head" for NBC's biased bosses.

Case in point, here we go again with the news on NBC news, 10/31. You know how the politically correct thing takes us from liar to "truth challenged"? I can only assume that NBC will claim to be "Juxtaposition Challenged". That can be the only explanation as to why they would present a news story on Sarah Palin's health, and how she had not disclosed the current report as of yet, and present or suggest nothing about Biden's health. And since they are so darned interested, they just flat out miss the Big Story on the closet smoking of Obama. But if that faux pas is not enough, they insure that they follow the negative comment on Palin with a heart-stirring story about Obama and his last visit with his grandmother.

And, has anyone gone shopping lately? Michelle O. proudly admits on Jay Leno that her complete outfit is from J-Crew. Last I checked, it's not designer, but it's not cheap. I know, have only girls, and I know where to go in NYC, and it's not Saks 5th's Strawberry's. So why is the media leaving that alone?

It's all about nerve. Where is the calling for accountability of the Obama campaign who pulls 150 million dollars in contributions, an incredible one-month record? Despite the mathematical fact that the amount is 1000 times higher than the so-called outrageous Palin wardrobe, how does the media just breeze past that fact? I call it BB! That's "Biased Blindness". It lives right in studio 1a right next to "Selective Memory in Interviews" and, of course, "JC", as previously mentioned.

But will Brian report this on the Nightly News? Not a chance. Will Brian take his investigative skills, which are quite sharp, and apply them to scrutinize the democratic spending-frenzy of hundreds of millions of dollars? Will he demand to see Barack or Michelle Obama's receipts for their wardrobes? Will he grill Barack on his liberal voting record? So far, not yet, and he only has four more days to do all of this in an effort to stay fair and balanced.

      Overall BBC is far more objective. I prefer to read news off that site.

      No need to sift and select. Just watched the NBC nightly news. the blog described the flow of the news. I didn't make it up, I just watched it. As far as the extended comments go, just a perception gained from watching NBC.

      Of course, I agree with the MSNBC comments, and also with the perspective that you are a very intelligent person...which explains your immediate attraction to my blog. Success breeds success, and intelligence attracts the same. Thank you for your thoughts.

      Analysis of the news have found that NBC Network's news has been fairly conclusive that they are the least biased network. In fact, they are often the most positive outlet towards republicans in television media A direct quote.

      "The distinct tone of MSNBC—more positive toward Democrats and more negative toward Republicans—was not reflected in the coverage of its broadcast sibling, NBC News. Even though it has correspondents appear on their cable shows and even anchor some programs on there, the broadcast channel showed no such ideological tilt. Indeed, NBC's coverage of Palin was the most positive of any TV organization studied, including Fox News"

      Perhaps you have confused NBC News with MSNBC Network.
