“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

AP is shocked, shocked to find bias in the media

The AP plunges headfirst into self-parody with this gem......

LONDON — Britain's general election is less than two weeks away, but it's not just the politicians and spin doctors out to sway the voters — the country's newspaper journalists have also jumped into the fray.

Unlike the United States, where many print reporters aspire to a measure of objectivity and media bias is seen as corrupting, many of Britain's most-read papers take sides — and aren't afraid to flaunt it.

I don't know how it would be possible for any media to be more biased and slanted than our main-stream media here in the US. Our feckless networks and fish-wrappers long ago abandoned even the pretense of objectivity and embraced "advocacy journalism" in which the reporters and reporterettes formed a template based on personal political bias and correctness, made every story fit their narrative, then reported it as truth.

You know our media has chosen sides when the National Enquirer is nominated for a Pulitzer for outing Silky Pony's affair with Rielle Hunter....a story the media refused to cover because they collectively, wanted him to be politically successful.
