I was reflecting on the national media coverage of the presidential campaign and it's obvious support for Barack Obama. I happen to be among those who believe the national media (and some local as well) strongly leans to the left. I recommend Bernie Goldberg's book, Bias
which reflects my view of the media elite in this country. My only hope for accurate coverage of the Obama presidency is that the media eventually give up the notion that Obama is their president and begin to cover him the way they did W. OK, that's not likely to happen, but the coverage may turn less friendly as Obama makes decisions in which the left-leaning talking heads take exception. I miss the days when at least their was a veneer of journalism and some standards applied to the coverage of campaigns and presidents. I'm afraid those feelings are just nostalgia at this point.
