    Do you think the media is favoring Pres Obama?

    Whether print or broadcast media, do you agree that this is the case? Explain your answer.

    The absolute correct answer is yes. The lame stream media does not report negative news on the Prez. They either completely omit the negative news on the Prez or they spin it so it is unrecognizable. They spin the good stuff on Obama (what good stuff?) and distort anything that could be perceived as good on Romney to spin negative. I refuse to watch ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN because they are useless. I watch Fox News but even then, on Fox, you are subject to Idiot liberals like Bob Beckel, Tamara Holder, Julie Roginsky, Simon Rosenberg, etc.  Fox is fair and balanced but as far as I am concerned, they could do without the "balance".  If I want to hear what a liberal has to say, I could tune in to MSNBC and make myself a REAL Idiot!
    People who are Dems or Libs and say they can't stand Fox News, I have to ask why. Fox has darn near as many liberals on all the shows as they do conservatives. Most people who say they don't like Fox News haven't even watched it. They just spout what their liberal leaders say and don't even try to digest the information because if they did, they would realize how stupid they sound.
    The lame stream media has become nothing short of PRAVDA. And they report anything but the truth as one would expect from STATE RUN TV!
    Are you aware that the DOJ, via Eric Holder, is now giving these lame stream channels information in advance of it hitting the public so that they can downplay bad news as it hits the airwaves? Yep!  State-run TV at its best. Another year under this Prez and his Czars and this country will be unrecognizable.
    If you don't watch Fox News, you simply do not know what the hell you are talking about because you won't hear it on the lame stream media if it is negative on the Prez or good for Romney.

    Media is favoring Obama might be true but that is not done with intention. To show the respect of decency to the acting President, the favorable wording  always go towards Obama. After all American citizen will vote for Obama for the 2nd term to show the presence of true democracy in USA and no black -white discrimination.

    They won't ask him hard questions, whether it is on how we can't bother to worry about Iranian nukes but should dismantle our own, or dead Mexicans from the Fast and Furious Gunrunning case, or political favoritism in all sorts of cases.  He gets a pass on growing evidence of corruption and cronyism.

    I think the media is dumbly reporting, repeating, and analyzing what each candidate says--just like it always does. Romney happens to be saying and doing a lot of stupid and racist things right now, so it makes the media look slanted. Are they supposed to cover his mistakes for him? Obama is a good campaigner and does not make many mistakes, so it is hard to poke fun at him. The media only looks at the superficial nonsense.

    This isn't a serious question. There has been no serious question about media bias for fifty years. Of course eighty percent of the US mass media support Obama. They would support Joseph Stalin were he to run as the progressive.
