Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 583 -- Obama's Glowing News Coverage.
Media Bias Alive & Well-
The non-partisan Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University has done some research on Obama's first months, and found that he is still the golden boy of the media:
Mr. Obama has received not only more press but also better press than his immediate predecessors. On the ABC, CBS, and NBC evening news, fifty-eight percent of all evaluations of the president and his policies have been favorable, and 42 percent were unfavorable. CMPA’s previous studies of network news found that George W. Bush received only 33 percent positive evaluations by sources and reporters during the first 50 days of his administration in 2001, and Bill Clinton received only 44 percent positive evaluations during his first ten weeks (70 days) in office in 1993.
This is all very reminiscent of the 2008 campaign season, which the media gave to Obama through their consistent praise (.pdf):
The positive coverage for Obama was the best media coverage any candidate has received since the CMPA began analyzing coverage in 1988. It is a real scandal.
A great video recap of Obama's first 100 days:

Obama is a master at manipulation. He has managed to convince Congress to pass his so called "Stimulus" Bill without even reading it! He has a cult like following. People faint in his audiences even still. The media darling, rock star, messiah has absolutely little to no merit and still managed to get elected. ACORN, Bill Ayers, his own voting record as a Senate etc. etc... The man could pass out the grape Kool aid and no doubt his Obamaites would drink it. I recognize a great con man when I see him. AND I see that in Obama. God bless our country. We need all the prayers we can muster up. We are in for a doozy of a ride for the next 4 years.
