"OXFORD, MS.--I just got this text message on my cell phone--the Obama campaign is urging people to watch the first presidential debate tonight on CNN. Why did the Obama campaign want to endorse one outlet when so many are showing the debate here at the University of Mississippi?

"Watch Barack Obama debate John McCain tonight at 9 p.m. Eastern on CNN," the message said. Also, remind friends to register to vote at VoteforChange.com. Please forward this message."

OK if CNN isn't in the tank for Obama then I guess I could say Rush Limbaugh is main stream. CNN's coverage of the debates was a joke, they claimed that experience didn't matter in thier poll results, but for Palin it was another story. another thing that was odd was when Obama kept saying John was right, they claimed it helped Obama. even the Boston Herald said McCain did better. Chris Matthews thought Obama was unhappy on how he did


Matthews Mad Obama Agreed So Much With McCain

I'm not trying to start another thread on the debate but rather talk about how the media is reporting it. what ever happened to just reporting the news and not telling the viewers what they should think?

It's a good thing too that they urged people to watch it! McCain lied approximately 5-8 times in the debate, and was totally called out!(Then, of course, he would repeat the same lies again, but...)

Also, perhaps the Obama campaign just wanted to make sure that debate viewers weren't being subliminally influenced by other stations?

Exactly! That's helping McCain! Obama definitely has the more experience, so touting such could only help McCain!

but for Palin it was another story.

Sooner or later, you are going to realize that Reality indeed has a liberal bias!
Obama has more experience then McCain, and quite frankly, Palin's a joke when it comes to experience.

Quote

the Boston Herald said McCain did better.

Hello? Everyone besides the far right agrees that Obama won!

I fully agree, Mathews. Obama has got to stop pandering to the central-right.

LOL. At least go to the link instead of making an irrelevant reply.
And of course every poll is biased towards liberals; Reality is.

Yeah with a pro Obama biased, why wouldn't Obama say this? CNNs new theme should be 'we report and tell you what to think'

You haven't even offered ANY evidence that CNN supports Obama over McCain!

Your crazy Conspiracy theories aside, Polls show what people tend to think in general. They can be a little off, but unfortunately, the polls indicate that Americans have a liberal bias, not CNN.

Honestly, I have no idea where the heck you are trying to go with this, either. Because a CNN poll indicates that "Experience doesn't matter" to Americans, that means it is all a conspiracy and CNN is in with Obama and that Obama is trying to brainwash people by telling them to watch the debate?

When there is empirical proof that Fox News is subliminally suggesting John McCain?

Why the hell would Obama tell everyone to watch the debates on CNN? my guess is so at the end they will show who won the debate in the tracking poll, since thier will be more pro liberal viewers because of the e-mail CNN will say Obama won. along with thier other twisting of covering the election like the Henry Kissinger miss quote.

Sooo it's ok that a news source like Fox supports McCain..  but damn any news source that supports Obama?  Kinda a double standard there.

Ok, does it seriously matter if the station is biased when it comes to a debate?  I mean, I can watch it on fox or cnn and it's the same debate! Even if the commentary is biased,  anyone actually watching and listening can form their own opinion.

YUP! Gore and Kerry according to most MEDIA EXPERTS won the debate.
The thing is media monopoly is gone now since the internet and modern communication.
