How 2008 presidential election demolished credibility of ‘mainstream’ press

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

The mask is off. The pretense over.

After decades of pretending they’re not biased leftward – even though everyone else knew it – America’s “mainstream media” have finally, during 2008, dropped the façade of fairness and impartiality.

  • The big media openly worship Barack Obama. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, upon listening to Obama speak, says almost mystically, “I felt this thrill going up my leg.” Rolling Stone magazine rhapsodizes, “There is a sense of dignity, even majesty, about him …
  • For its October cover, The Atlantic magazine hires a photographer who intentionally photographs John McCain to look ugly and threatening. (”I left his eyes red and his skin looking bad,” she later admits, adding, “maybe it was somewhat irresponsible for [the Atlantic] to hire me.”
  • The New York Times publishes Barack Obama’s op-ed on Iraq policy, but refuses to run McCain’s op-ed. At the same time, all three network’s news anchors tag along with Obama like groupies on his overseas stump tour, while McCain receives scant media coverage.
  • The pregnancy of Sarah Palin’s teen daughter is national news, as is the presence in the Alaska governor’s mansion of a tanning bed (which Palin paid for herself). But Obama being mentored and nurtured for years by terrorists (William Ayers), communists (Frank Marshall Davis) and America-hating racists (Rev. Jeremiah Wright), which helped shape him into the most left-wing, America-blaming, radically pro-abortion and tyrant-appeasing presidential candidate in U.S. history, is not news.Yes, the media have long been biased to the left. But this year it’s different. This year, the mask has come off and the real face of the mainstream media – or MSM as they’re popularly called – has been revealed for all to see. And it ain’t pretty.

    Documenting this stunning transformation of the American news media – and pointing to amazingly positive changes now occurring in the evolution of the free press – is the October edition of WND’s elite monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE YEAR THE MEDIA DIED.”
