Maher, Olbermann Discuss Media Bias

By Tony Mazur

On a recent episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, Mr. Maher invited Andrew Ross Sorkin, Bernie Sanders, Kerry Washington, and MSNBC's Keith Olbermann on his HBO show to talk about the issues that are troubling our country. Apparently, the biggest threat to the country is right-wing radio.

The "open-minded" panelists talked about how dangerous right wingers such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck are to America. They bring up such examples as Timothy McVeigh and Ted Kaczynski, and how they listened to Conservative radio religiously before their killing sprees.

I find this rather amusing. For eight years, we were plagued with pompous liberal talk show hosts such as Maher, Olbermann, and Jon Stewart, spewing their hate on a nightly basis. I loathe Olbermann, but Stewart is the worst. His show, which is on Comedy Central, is to show the lighter side of politics. However, his commentary toward the entire Bush administration was ruthless and vile. Stewart, who swears up and down that he is an Independent, has not muttered the same vicious language toward Obama and his cronies.

Last week, the unbiased CNN played phone calls from ticked-off citizens about the recent AIG bonuses. One in particular was a death threat PLAYED ON THE AIR toward all AIG employees.

Are we still talking about the loving and caring liberals?

Liberals will not be satisfied until every American citizen is a registered Democrat (like Cubs, Venezuela, and other communist countries). Right now, the three-headed monster of Obama-Pelosi-Reid is out to rally the American people against capitalism. It's true. The AIG bonuses is a perfect example (and it's the Democrats' fault for it in the first place).

Maher and Olbermann must be forgetting that the media is BLATANTLY liberal and they will NEVER report anything anti-Obama. They attack right wing radio because it's a differing opinion from their own. That's all. As I previously mentioned, liberals detest anyone who doesn't agree with them. It's a very socialist way of thinking.
