FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE

The Epitome of Bias

In the midst of the Presidential election, it becomes more important than ever to expose the mainstream media’s left-wing bias. Sadly, many in this country watch broadcasts on CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC and actually believe that they are getting a balanced presentation of the candidates and their platforms.

But, this simply isn’t the case.

Take, for instance, ABC’s Good Morning America. On Monday, Good Morning America dedicated several segments to Presidential candidates. During the two-hour program, a total of 15 minutes was given to Democrat candidates. So, how much time was given to Republican candidates? Being an objective, fair, and balanced news network, I’m sure that ABC dedicated an equal amount of time to the other side.

Not even close.

While they gave 15 minutes to Democrat candidates, they gave a mere 31 seconds to Republican candidates. That’s right. 31 seconds.

The 15 minutes dedicated to Democrats (which took place over the course of 4 segments) included Diane Sawyer interviewing Barack Obama TWICE, George Stephanopoulos (who used to work as an advisor to President Clinton) interviewing Hillary Clinton, and Kate Snow discussing the current state of Hillary’s Presidential campaign.

After these four segments, Sawyer decided to maintain the illusion of balance by asking “And what about the Republicans?” What followed was a conversation lasting 31 seconds. That’s it. 31 seconds.

Balance? I don’t think so.
