More Evidence Of The Media's Devotion To Obama Mania
In today's Post Howard Kurtz has a good column about the media's love for Obama. Kurtz is the Post's resident media critic and he has done a good job during the campaign pointing out examples of the media's love affair with Obama.
However, Kurtz is carefully never to give the real reason for the media bias. After all, if you are employed by the mainstream media you can never tell the truth about media bias. The truth is the media is full of liberals, that is why they love Obama.
Kurtz is careful to downplay philosophy as a reason to explain bias, rather he comes up with weak excuses such as the media just happens to personally like Obama more than McCain, they give more positive coverage to Obama because it is more profitable, etc.. Check it out his column.
