Back At Ya BO!

This ad was requested to run during the Super Bowl but rejected by NBC. To be fair NBC rejected an ad from  PETA, but NBC is still working with PETA to air their ad. This ad would be difficult for The One to dispute.

the networks also rejected "controversial" super bowl ads that were critical of bush while he was in office.

i should add, i don't think this ad should be rejected, and i don't think the ads critical of bush should have been rejected then. but it's not a case of media bias.

Here is my send up to the 43rd President of the Great U S of A. As a tribute at half time during the SuperBowl.

Where did you read this, Kermit, in the unbiased media?

Only a complete fool would suggest that media is not slanted towards the left. Only a complete fool would deny that Obama enjoyed an advantage during the campaign.

Telling a lie often enough does not make it the truth.

But I would expect some folks to keep on trying.

It did in the case of George Bush when they suckered you into agreeing with the Iraq war.

i agree that, on the whole, obama received better press coverage during the campaign. if you want to scream bias, go ahead. i think obama ran an objectively better campaign than mccain, and the i think the level of lying and trashiness by the mccain/palin campaign was so great that no objective press could ignore it. on the other hand, bush got better press coverage in 2000 than gore.

i respectfully disagree that the media slants towards the left. as i've said before, i don't think it slants to the right either -- i think all of us have lots to complain about. but if you really want to get into it, off the top of my head, how about this: during debate over the stimulus bill, republicans received much more representation on television than democrats. or what about the kennedy affair with paterson? even you seemed to think he got a raw deal from the press, despite that shiny d next to this name.
