Quick, Someone Tell The WaPo
The Earth Isn't Flat!
The op-ed page ran far more laudatory opinion pieces on Obama, 32, than on Sen. John McCain, 13. There were far more negative pieces about McCain, 58, than there were about Obama, 32, and Obama got the editorial board's endorsement.
The number of Obama stories since Nov. 11 was 946, compared with McCain's 786.
...from June 9, when Clinton dropped out of the race, until Nov. 2, 66 percent of the campaign stories were about Obama compared with 53 percent for McCain; some stories featured both.
...from June 4, Obama was in 311 Post photos and McCain in 282. Obama led in most categories. Obama led 133 to 121 in pictures more than three columns wide, 178 to 161 in smaller pictures, and 164 to 133 in color photos.
The WaPo...biased, favoring Liberals! Shocking! Mr. Hankey-Poo-in-your-pants-style shocking!
No wonder newspapers, especially liberally-slanted ones, have seen their subscriptions just plummet. It looks good on 'em. They brought it upon themselves.
