Media Bias?

Filed under: 1st Amendment, I Support:, U.S. Military, War, War on Terror — olbroad @ 8:51

The headline in the Washington Post:

4 Years After Start of War, Anger Reigns

The picture accompanying the story:


The side note:

Veterans, Others Denounce Marchers

with required picture:


Nope, no bias here!


5000 moonbats versus 30,000 patriots?  Which side should have gotten more coverage?

How ’bout some REAL pictures, here, here, here,  and here.  There are many more sites with pictures and first hand accounts.



  1. 5000 moonbats versus just 300 patriots, turn out the lights, count to 100, and see who wins!!! Gets my vote.

  2. Sixty percent of American who oppose the Iraq war versus few chickenhawk keyboard warriors such as you. I will go with the American people.

  3. Chickenhawk…funny:)

  4. I noticed our local news didn’t even MENTION that there was a counter protest.

    I never did see ANY pictures of the counter protest. And certainly nothing about the Gathering of Eagles envoy across America. NOTHING. Now that would be real news.

    Regarding the commenters above, the MSM only helps them stay in their denial.

  5. 60%? Tim, are you telling me that 60% of American people would prefer defeat over victory? Yeah, ok…step away from the Kool Aid.

  6. Soooo…..are we supposed to shut up about a given issue if the poll say so?

  7. Thank you for the link!

  8. You are quite welcome….thank YOU for all you have done.

  9. I agree with Tim. If 60% are against the war in the polls, the MSM should ignore the facts and report according to the 60%’s wishes.
    The media is hereby rendered moot.
    Polls shall tell us what news is.

  10. Main Stream Media Ignores A Gathering of Eagles

    Thousands followed the Silly Cindy Shenanigans to Washington D.C. to re-enact a ‘Hippy’s Trying to Relive Their Youth’ march commemorating a march they did in the 1960s. It was basically a bunch of 60 year olds reliving the 1960s. Sam…

  11. Back to the story moonbats. 30,000 American Vets and supporters told the Surrender to Shari crowd they could go to hell and not one major seditious media outlet covered their story.

    With American people getting this kind of anti-American biased news coverage one can only imagine their motives.

    Question to the idiots. If you are in a bar fight do you take a poll to find out if you should let the drunk hit you or do you fight?

    Stupidity is never pretty. Especially when it pertains to disrespecting American Veterans. Nether of which the left has any problem with. Even if it means defending Islamic terrorist following the Koran’s command to convert or kill us all.

  12. Excellent comparison, Dhimmicrats! 🙂 Of course, I’d be surprised if there was a response….other than… “but but but….that’s diiiiiifferent” in the most annoying whine.

  13. I wonder how many of the Left-Wing “Intellectuals” (using that term very loosely) would actually SURVIVE under Communism, which what they seem to want, or under Sharia, which is most likely what they’ll get? Very few, I imagine…

    I take offense to the “chickenhawk keyboard warriors” comment, as I’m not the only blogger who attended. Most of the bigger guns, from what I can tell, showed up. Where were you, Tim? Behind one of the Anarchist shields, or tucked in you warn little bed?

    Plus, I’ve personally seen both sides of this argument…Tim, you’ll lose, both intellectually AND physically.

    Oh, and when I’m not called the Arbic equivalent of ‘Infidel Bitch’ I’m called Rampaige. Do I sound like I cower?

  16. To the keyboard warrior, who wants to compare the Iraq war to bar fight. In a bar fight, the person is fighting himself or herself against a drunk. But in this case, we have a person fighting by using billions of tax dollars and sending the kids of other people to fight in a never ending war. Right wing moonbats always want to talk about democracy. Democracy is the rule of the people. We have to respect the opinion of the majority of Americans. Another reason why your comparison is moronic is that we did not have any “drunk” in this war. We chose to attack another country on false premises. So the more accurate comparison would be the United States as the drunk.

  17. Tim, moonbats are on the left….wingnuts are on the right. 🙂 Get it straight! LOL

    False premises eh? So, every Dem who said Hussein had WMDs was lying, right? And by the way, he did, they just haven’t found as many as they thought there would be…so far.

    I liked the comparison m’self, but then, I’m a wingnut. 🙂

  18. Tim, don’t you know a steady diet of slogans is hazardous to your health?

    Comment by Calvin — March 19, 2007 @ 4:06

  19. Olbroad, that was my mistake. I am not that well versed in name calling.

    Comment by Tim — March 19, 2007 @ 5:29

  20. Tim, you are forgiven…cuz I’m just that kind of person. 🙂

  21. […] Ol’ Broad noticed a little media bias herself. She has a great example. […]
