    Are CBS, ABC, and NBC "in the (gas) tank" for Obama? Why else would THIS be happening? When Bush gas prices rose in the month of March 24-April 24, 2008, the aforementioned media outlets reported on the high gas prices 97 times. When gas prices under Obama rose even higher, in the month of Jan. 20-Feb. 20, 2012, these same news organizations mentioned rising gas prices only 21 times. WHY??

      The networks are so biased that it would almost appear that they are on Obama's payroll. They gave up reporting the "news" a long time ago and we, the people, are paying a very high price for their negligence.

      EH yeah some of them are a bit not much though, easily compensated for by the FOX madness but I will say this, people are not as interested in rising fuel costs now, why? Because we have all sort of accepted this with a sort of fatalism that the prices will continue to rise, its just not a story compred to when the process was gaining momentum would you say people a care a quarter as much now? That sounds about right to me.

        There was actually a study done on fox news.  It found that people were less informed about the subjects discussed on fox after watching fox news than they were before it.

          Hmm. 
          I bet a study done on the study that was done on Fox News would find that the study needed to be legitimately studied by a legitimate study group, and that study should name its study sources and facts so that actual people could study the facts behind the so-called study.  lol

            As well as making no sense the point you tried to make isn't even valid. Here is the study. http://publicmind.fdu.edu/2011/knowless/

            Now here is a second study finding that fox news viewers are more likely to believe in false information. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/1 … 98146.html

              Um.  That was the point---that the study makes no sense, nor is it trustworthy.
              And that first link was a study of New Jersey residents, and a small one at that.  Plus, if you'll read further, you might just notice that it deems MSNBC to be incapable of properly informing people too.
              I'd like to see a study of CNN.  A legitimate study, of course.  So I guess I won't hold my breath for that.  LOL.

              As for your second link, I refrain.  I'm not interested in listening to the hot air from Huffington Post.

                The study makes perfect sense and is just as trust worthy as any other study from a university.  The second study was also done by a university.  You need to get your fact strait before you start blowing off hot air.  And you keep bring up CNN like it proves your point.  Who cares about CNN you have yet to make an actual statement about it.

      The powers that be want you to get used to higher gasoline prices. And Obama is talking about using the strategic reserve to tamp down prices. Hopefully that will happen. You can't really believe an oil man like Bush would not have wanted high gasoline.

    I don't find them liberal at all. Not once do they mention anything good Obama has done. Not once do they tell the truth aboout our predicament. And not once do they ever ask these Republican candidates or their mouth-pieces to explain the complete LIES that come out of their mouths! Not once.

    Next time Romney blasts Santorum for no child left behind...I want one of them to say But gvr--you supported it too.

    Or but gvr--Obamacare is modeled on what you did in massachusetts--is it really an evil plot that will bankrupt America?

    Or Santorum--do you really belive your religion should gvr all of America?

    Or Paul--how does the Personhood amendment fit with the Libertarian philosophy?

    Or--Any of you....do you really believe that Obama is a muslim terrorist? Do you not believe he is a christian?

    Nope....they let these people spout off lies and propaganda witn nary a word.

    Liberal my a..

    All Mass Media fronts are bought and paid for.  You will never find any unbiased news from them whether they are liberal or conservative.

    I guarantee that if you vote Republican you will have gas prices that are even higher.

      And no unions to protect you from abusive business practices, and higher taxes if you're on the lower income spectrum, and less and less of any kind of thing that comes with being a citizen, unless you are wealthy.

      Bigger police state, private everything. Oh yeah, and "war" with Iran.

      Don't forget that the Republicans keep complaining about how people that are living below the poverty level don't pay taxes.  Soon the republicans will be taxing homeless people.

      "But it turns out that in the version of the bill approved by a House committee this week, half a million of the state’s poorest residents who earn less than $25,000 will wind up paying an average of $72 more per year, while the 21,000 Kansans who make over $250.000 will get an average tax cut of $1500."
