Made me smile. Apparently, Cheney's shunning the mainstream national and international media during his campaign tours across the US. Not letting them on his plane or into his rallies. It appears Cheney is no longer playing ball with the media that's been so utterly biased and unfair against he and President Bush for the last 3 years.

NPR's reporter is apparently oblivious to this and begins to show exactly why Cheney isn't too interested in having reporters like her commenting on Cheney's stump speeches, even after CBS's Rathergate scandal. She defends Kerry's and Edwards votes against supplying the troops with equipment in October 2003 because it wouldn't raise taxes, and calls Cheney's shots against Kerry as "unfair". She fails to understand that at this time, Kerry and Edwards who voted FOR the Iraq war in 2002 were lagging far behind Howard Dean, the most vociferous anti war candidate in the primaries. They voted against supplying troops out of duplicitous "me too" opportunism, the hallmark of Kerry's entire 30 year political career, in order to get back into the base's good graces. Even if that meant letting our troops and mission in Iraq twist in the wind.

NPR's reporter then starts on a laundry list of Cheney's "extremism" and things that are wrong about him, except for his support for states to decide legalizing gay marriage.

Scoll down and listen to see what I mean.

I had a conversation with a flaming liberal yesterday. She was bitching and whining how Bush and Cheney were screwing things up and killing innocent muslims. But, she did acknowledge there is a war on terror going on.

I then asked her if there were three people in the room, her, a terrorist and one other person, would she choose, Bush, Cheney, Kerry or Edwards. Her choice was Cheney. She thought Cheney would beat the crap out of the terrorist. Hmmmm...why would you vote for Kerry/Edwards, but rather have Bush/Cheney.

I was listening to the 25th anniversary Diane Rehm show the other day. A republican listener called in and detailed in an articulate and polite but firm manner how she and Terry Gross had demonstrated a clear liberal bias... Diane was SHOCKED that anyone would think this. I laughed my ass off. These people really think they are being impartial.

And worse, your tax dollars pay for these YOBOS to spew their liberal trash. Yank their funds and let them survive on their own merits . . .

No,they think they are the center. To them, trying to remain moderate is the same as being impartial. Unfortunately, they are neither centrists nor moderate nor impartial. They are ultra-liberal - and biased, even if they won't admit it openly.

NPR is merely DUh on radio.

No they're not. NPR is usually good. Their bias is there, but I think their bias is not overboard, and they're definitely not lunatics like DU.

But like the rest of the media, they breathlessly rush to air and magnify criticisms of Bush, are extremely reluctant to report if those allegations turn out to be BS. Like the whole Niger yellowcake business.

I want a T-Shirt with a cartoon of Cheney BBQing a terrorist on a split like a hog.
