The media’s Democratic bias

A few random thoughts occurred to me while recapping various recent reports from local and national media.

Jose de la Isla's recent commentary was entitled "Our nation suffers from anxiety disorder." Welcome to the world of the liberal media. They have accomplished their goal.

Every cup is half-empty. The public is continuously bombarded with the message that every issue is a crisis, along with the insinuation each is unsolvable. When real and serious issues are reported, we do not get any solutions, just force-fed negativity and anxiety.

Honest, hard-working taxpayers are supposed to bail out and do bail out every irresponsible mess existing, and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama just told a 7-year-old girl that he wants to be president of the Untied States because the country isn't very good.

That is profound coming from a man who, along with his wife, ought to thank God and kiss the ground of these Untied States every day of their lives for what this land has offered and given them.

The country is overrun with illegal aliens that cost us dearly by diminishing our schools, bankrupting our public health/welfare systems and filling up our jails and prisons.

Yes, there are many good people amid the illegitimacy, but the sane among us simply ask that our borders be crossed legally and responsibly. For that simple request, we are often labeled as racist and non-caring.

Local Democrat Bruce McFarland tells us that every ill of California is the fault of Republicans voting against tax increases. Democrats rule the state every year and repeatedly spend us into massive and growing deficits.

Bloat and fraud are purposely ignored while higher taxes are mandated. Is it the fault of Republicans?


SCV's informed and astute Roger Gitlin reminds us that $85 billion of the state's $145 billion budget is spent (more accurately: "wasted") on K-12 education and public health/welfare system.

That money does not include colleges or those of us who pay our own health care (insurance, deductibles, co-pays). The California Legislature couldn't work within a 2009 budget of $300 billion because it is addicted to spending. Period. Lawmakers need a serious financial diet, and we taxpayers need it now.

Local Democrat Kevin Buck mocked the caliber of the Republican presidential candidates. Among them, Mitt Romney was chided for being wealthy and Rudy Guiliani for being a serial adulterer.

That reckless sneering was offered as Democrats count Bill Clinton, John Edwards and Ted Kennedy among their finest.

This is the sad compilation of our "news."
