What a Shocker: Media Behavior At Obama's Speech

What a Shocker: Media Behavior At Obama's Speech

From The Hill:

Several members of the media were seen cheering and clapping for Barack Obama as the Illinois senator accepted the Democratic nomination Thursday.
Standing on the periphery of the football field serving as the Democratic convention floor, dozens of men and women wearing green media floor passes chanted along with the crowd.
Two members of the foreign press exchanged opportunities to take each other's pictue while wearing an Obama hat and waving a flag.
Several others nearby screamed "woo" during some of Obama's biggest applause lines.
Wow! I never would have guessed that the news media aren't being objective about the choice for President!

Wouldn't it be amusing if the progressive insistence on "economic democracy" were applied to the media, and the federal government required all news organizations to hire reporters who shared the views of the majority?
