Last week SNL did one of its incredibly rare skewerings of Barack Obama.  And CNN was so offended that their deity had been violated that they raced to fact check the offensive skit and “correct the record.”

At the very least, in the words of Newsweek editor Evan Thomas, Obama is “sort of God” for media liberal elites as he hovers “above the world.”

Here’s the SNL Obama skit, reminding viewers that Obama has basically failed to accomplish anything, and that liberals should be far angrier at him for all of his broken promises and failures than conservatives should be.

And here is Wolf Blitzer and the CNN team desperate to defend the honor of their Messiah from being besmirched by Philistines:

I mean, you can almost hear the exclamation of, “Oh, the humanity!” as Wolf Blitzer rebuked SNL:

WOLF BLITZER: It seems no politician is safe from Saturday Night Live. While many people think SNL has mostly spared President Obama, what they’re doing now is not necessarily all that kind. They essentially cast the leader of the free world as a do-nothing president, at least so far. Even though SNL deals in comedy, what they said about the President rings true for a lot of you, apparently. So, did the show accurately capture a mood, or did it go off track for comedic effect?

I mean, poor Wolf.  Just a couple of weeks ago children were singing some of his favorite hymns praising Obama:

Going from the praise of public school children to the SNL smackdown must have been like a heroin addict coming off a high to the cold, cruel world.

Of course, one must immediately point out that nothing even remotely CLOSE to this ever happened while Tina Fey was relentlessly hammering Sarah Palin every single Saturday night for months.

The pathological ideological bias of the mainstream media is beyond shocking.  It’s repulsive.  It’s obscene.  And it is most certainly pathetic.

    Don’t worry. You still have Fox “news” spinning the news to fit your ideology.

    Actually, I thought the SNL skit was pretty funny. But see, thats all it is. Funny. A joke. What Wolf Blitzer was trying to point out is that while they’re making fun, Obama is actually doing work- behind the scenes and with Congress to get things accomplished. Let’s all remember that it’s only been 10 months of his 4 year term. He may be inspirational and a gifted leader with fantastic ideas, but he can’t accomplish EVERYTHING in 10 months. Is that what you’d expect? And is that the only thing that would get you to believe in him? Of course. Setting unrealistic expectations is the only way you can diminish him. It only makes sense.

    Thanks for providing an example that, no matter how insanely biased the mainstream media is, liberals will still demonize Fox. It’s rather like the “Blame Bush” thing, only with Fox News. You liberals are incapable of taking responsibility for anything; all you are are a bunch of demagogues.

    You couldn’t even acknowledge the obvious fact that what CNN did was a shocking act of bias: nope. Not in you. All you could do is resort to liberal form and point a finger to demonize someone else. If you were capable of taking an honest look at yourself, you wouldn’t like what you saw. So you don’t.

    How many SNL skits targeted Sarah Palin? – and every single Saturday night, during the campaign, when it really mattered? – a ton. And how many times did an indignant Fox “fact check” SNL? Zero. Rather, the ONLY thing they did was cite the results of media research organizations that reported the objective fact that late night comedy targeted McCain/Palin at a shockingly higher rate than it did Obama/Biden.

    We just saw the results of a study that DEMONSTRATED that the media was negative about Reagan 91% of the time, versus only 7% of the time for Obama, for IDENTICAL unemployment figures. And for some reason the media totally ignored the fact that Reagan had inherited his unemployment from Carter (and remember, Democrats controlled congress during both Carter/ Reagan’s AND Bush’s final two years).

    You tell me the media isn’t ridiculously biased to the left – and again I can only imagine a radical ideologue who is only capable of seeing the world through a warped, demented kaleidoscope. A UCLA study concludes, “almost all major media outlets tilt to the left,” noting that “Of the 20 major media outlets studied, 18 scored left of center.” But you’re probably find that a public university located in liberal California in ultra-liberal Los Angeles is somehow a conservative entity loaded with rightwing bias.

    Here are some more media tidbits:
    The media has been so blatantly biased throughout its election coverage that it is completely accurate to say that we are now in a propaganda state. There is no possible way that Republicans can win in this media climate: whether you look at the Media Research Center, or at the Project for Excellence in Journalism (or again at their more recent study), or at the University of Wisconsin’s Wisconsin Advertising Project, there is widespread agreement with one longtime ABC journalist that the media is dangerously biased. Pew Research discovered that Americans believe by a 70% to 9% margin that the media is biased in favor of Obama and against McCain. The media now represents a fifth column of government – a propaganda wing – that attacks conservatives and celebrates and defends Democrats and their ideology. Democracy is going extinct in the country that founded democracy, because no free society can survive such a climate of propaganda.

    From Media Research:

    89 percent of Washington-based reporters said they voted for Bill Clinton in 1992. Only seven percent voted for George Bush, with two percent choosing Ross Perot.———–
    Based on the 139 Washington bureau chiefs and congressional correspondents who returned the Freedom Forum questionnaire, the Washington-based reporters — by an incredible margin of nine-to-one — overwhelmingly cast their presidential ballots in 1992 for Democrat Bill Clinton over Republican incumbent George Bush.

    But none of that matters to people like you, Ben. Because you are a true ideologue in every sense of the word. You are pathologically incapable of fairness or objectivity.

    So you just keep on smoking the crack pipe of yours and seeing all the “conservative bias” on the news.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    politicrat, please take a look at the overwhelming leftwing bias in the news – AND THINK.

    This is what disgusts me so much about the left; you are ONLY capable of looking at the world through your ideology. You CANNOT see anything that undermines it.

    Your “argument” is that Obama has only been president for 9 months, so the latenight comics shouldn’t go after him? And how long was Sarah Palin a VP candidate before they went after her? 9 minutes.

    The late night industry has been overwhelingly tilted to the left. Newsbusters cites the same study and has a little more to say.

    Did you ever demand that the late night only tell “fair” jokes about Bush? No. It’s just not in you people. All you can do is justify the leftwing talking point – no matter how radically wrong it is.

    It’s like you’re a bunch of cockroaches who aren’t even capable of seeing anything outside the cockroach prism. And it truly disgusts me.

  5. Ben Hoffman Says:

    So to prove that the media has a liberal bias, you site sources that have an unabashedly right-wing bias. Okay.

    Mikey, your party has pretty much destroyed our country and everything our founding fathers envisioned. We now have a government run by corporations rather than the people. We have the military industrial complex deciding foreign policy. We have the insurance giants deciding whether or not we should have a government insurance option.

    While you have every right to give up your liberties for a little security, most of us here aren’t willing to do that. Most of us aren’t cowards.

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    I cite an obvious example of media bias from CNN, and you immediately point a finger at a media outlet that DID NOT fact check comedians. You lack the capacity to comprehend even the most blatant acts of propaganda. Because you are biased and unfair.

    I cite an abundance of sources – including UCLA which is anything BUT “right-wing” (having taken courses there, and having had a brother who graduated from there, I can guarantee that) – but rather than stop and consider a huge array of evidence, you immediately label them as “right-wing.” Because you are profoundly dishonest, and will not even consider the truth.

    The article on Reagan vs. Obama on unemployment doesn’t just “say” horrible liberal bias, it SHOWS it. But you are as incapable of seeing truth as a totally blind man is of seeing colors.

    Then you tell me that my party – the party that freed the slaves, by the way – has destroyed our country.

    No one will ever be able to tell you that our founding fathers were not a bunch of radical Marxists who yearned for a giant government that dominated the people. Nobody will ever be able to tell you that “the people” did not mean “the giant federal bureaucracy.” No one will ever be able to tell you that our founding fathers didn’t want a $1.4 TRILLION federal deficit under Obama which dwarfs anything America – or the history of the world – has ever seen before.

    You demonize private corporations – which our privately owned by PEOPLE and considered “PERSONS” as regards law, and wish to run roughshod over their rights because you are at heart a Marxist. And you would replace privately owned corporations – which the people can avoid – with a colossus government octopus which will rule over us as lord and master in a way corporations NEVER could for the same reason.

    It doesn’t matter that our founders spoke like this:

    Thomas Jefferson: “If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy” [Bergh, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 10:342].

    Because you are completely ignorant of what these great men stood for.

    It doesn’t matter if they said:

    Samuel Adams: “The Utopian schemes of leveling [re-distribution of the wealth] and a community of goods [central ownership of all the means of production and distrubution], are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the Crown. [These ideas] are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional” [William V. Wells, The Life and Public Services of Samual Adams, 3 vols. (Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1865), 1:154].

    Because you frankly don’t give a damn what our founders said.

    Liberals have evicted as though it were some kind of blasphemy the “Providence” from our counsels, schools, courts, and assemblies that our founding fathers celebrated. “From the day of the Declaration… they [the American people] were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and by the laws of the gospel, which they nearly all acknowledged as the rules of their conduct” (John Quincy Adams, as Secretary of State, Oration celebrating July 4th 1821].

    I cite the difference between our founding fathers and secular humanist liberals ad nauseum here. Unlike Democrats, our founding fathers actually liked God and believed that religious morality was an essential part of a free nation. But nobody will ever be able to tell you that our founding fathers actually would have permitted a simple cross, rather than demanding that it be covered up like pornography until the judges decide whether it can stay.

    George Washington had this to offer:

    “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indespensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens… Let it simply be asked, where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? and let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education… reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle” [Padover, The Washington Papers, pp. 318-10].

    Read that carefully. By Washington’s standard, Democrats who have tried to get BOTH out of society are just plain simple TRAITORS.

    And, when Thomas Jefferson said this about the judges:

    “This member of the Government was at first considered as the most harmless and helpless of all its organs. But it has proved that the power of declaring what the law is, ad libitum, by sapping and mining slyly and without alarm the foundations of the Constitution, can do what open force would not dare to attempt.”
    —Thomas Jefferson to Edward Livingston, 1825. ME 16:114

    and this:

    “To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men and not more so. They have with others the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps. Their maxim is boni judicis est ampliare jurisdictionem [good justice is broad jurisdiction], and their power the more dangerous as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves.”
    —Thomas Jefferson to William C. Jarvis, 1820. ME 15:277

    and this:

    “The Constitution . . . meant that its coordinate branches should be checks on each other. But the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.”
    —Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, 1804. ME 11:51

    Only the very worst of all imaginable fools would have thought he was sanctioning liberal judicial activist judges who would come to look at the Constitution like a crystal ball to find penumbras and emanations.

    And your last paragraph suggesting that somehow Republicans took away “liberties” is the blathering of a complete idiot. Even the very worst of the things Republicans did that liberals demonized (the Patriot Act) were actually supported overwhelmingly by Democrats (who are merely dishonest hypocrites, and so damned what they passed). The US Senate voted for the Patriot Act 98-1. Only a complete weasel would blame Republicans. But you are a complete weasel, aren’t you? And Obama has extended virtually ALL of the Bush-era “violations” that liberals decried. Domestic eavesdropping, rendition, etcetera, etcetera.

    Meanwhile, Democrats have now grown government and threatened the people like this country has never seen. You look over the president who has over 30 czars to demonize Republicans, you hypocrite.
