I read the headline and thought now there's some breaking news that the rest of the world has missed. On Fridays MS NBC program Hardball of which Mr.Mattews is the host casually dropped that he indeed thinks the media may lean a wee bit left. Coming from the guy who tingles when Obama speaks, its hardly a startling revelation. My next thought was this has to be as fine an example of understatement as any I have ever seen. The media does not merely lean left in this country. They lean so far left and have done so for so long that their left legs are shorter than their right legs. They have been so genetically altered by environment and breeding that they can for the most part no longer walk across level ground without walking in a circle. A circle to the left of course.
Last week on the NBC program the Jimmy Fallon show they introduced Republican candidate for the presidency Michelle Bachmann with the song " Lyin' Ass Bitch " . Later, the shows drummer Ahmir " Questlove " Thompson apparently the gentleman responsible for the songs selection said " The performance was a tongue-in-cheek and spur of the moment decision. The show was not aware of it and I feel bad if her feelings were hurt. That was not my intention, ". The problem with that defense is that he tweeted before the show this tweet.... " late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title. " ... A little left Mr.Matthews ....really
P.S. Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson is a ardent Obama supporter and has contributed to his campaign
