The mainstream media's support for Barack Obama's presidential campaign was so biased that even major insiders are now admitting they were shocked by its depth and depravity.

Last week, Time magazine's Mark Halperin called the media's performance during the campaign simply "disgusting."

Halperin told a panel of media analysts at the Politico/USC conference on the 2008 election, "It's the most disgusting failure of people in our business since the Iraq war."

He added, "It was extreme bias, extreme pro-Obama coverage."

According to the Web site Politico, Halperin, who edits Time's political site "The Page," zeroed in on two New York Times articles near the end of the campaign that profiled both Cindy McCain and Michelle Obama.

"The story about Cindy McCain was vicious," Halperin said. "It looked for every negative thing they could find about her and it cast her in an extraordinarily negative light. It didn't talk about her work, for instance, as a mother for her children, and they cherry-picked every negative thing that's ever been written about her."

But the Times gave Michelle Obama red carpet treatment, "like a front-page endorsement of what a great person Michelle Obama is."

The press never bothered to hold Obama accountable for reneging on his promise to use public financing. McCain kept his promise to do so.- From the link.
I like Obama,I voted for Obama,but i cannot understand either the insane craze of everyone by him,look in the past Democratic nominees Kerry,Gore,Clinton,Dukakis, and Mondale all FAR MORE qualified than Obama but not the same craze
It’s the cult of personality -- well known in Europe, Asia and South America. The US escaped the phenomena, until now. The press has been in the tank for the Democrats for years. Now, it’s just embarrassing.
You do not understand the insane craze? The first African American who talks soooo smooth, took Hillary's place and is loved by Hamas? You don't get it??
And you agree he's not qualified to be Pres but you voted for him anyway?

Now I don't get it.

I see you are a habitual liar

Obama is qualified and i never said he wasnt,I said he was less qualified

The only unqualified person elected to the office is the current fool in the White House

Habitual liar is a little strong. We can't make a determination about how qualified Obama is until he's actually president and does something. I'm wondering how long the luster will last now that he's backing off his campaign promises; however, I think his stand on the Bush tax cuts is a good decision.

Realistically, the way the country is now, I doubt that anyone is really qualified to be president. In any event, whoever may be the most qualified has absolutely zero chance of ever getting elected.
