This will be a short post – supper isn’t going to cook itself – so let me cut to the chase: the recent freaking out by the Left-sphere over Mitt Romney’s vicious and unprovoked attack on Obama (otherwise known as “directly quoting him”) pretty much demonstrates that they actually share the Right’s belief that the media is biased in favor of liberals. How do we know this? Simple: their reaction to an unexpected stimulus. Apparently, nobody on the Left actually planned on them being hammered by the media for the stuff that Obama says – first on Bain, and then on this entire You didn’t build that piece of pseudo-populist fluff that the President’s running on.
With me so far? Good. Now, here’s the thing: how is the Left reacting to the media showing what they would consider to be a conservative bias? Logic suggests that – if they really believed that the media was not biased towards the Left – then they’d react to a perceived media bias against them the same way that we would: with a certain anger, but no real shock. Instead, we’re getting the political equivalent of this:
In other words, a lot of screaming and feelings of betrayal and OH MY GOD THE STINGS I HAVE NEVER FELT THIS KIND OF PAIN BEFORE HELP ME HELP ME THE BEES OH GOD THE BEES.
Just thought I’d mention that. I’d hate to think that anybody thought that they were getting away with the aforementioned screaming and freaking out and what not…
