If I continue to hear people complain about media favoritism toward Sen. Barack Obama, I may go insane. Look at the facts: Sen. John McCain's been around and Obama is new. If the media weren't giving as much attention as they have been to Obama, they would be accused of refusing to do real journalism to unravel his past and inspect his closet.

Second, I strongly dispute the idea that reports are always more positive for Obama. While many would point to all the times when McCain's comments have been blown out of proportion, remember it is the Democrats who parade around those comments, not the media. Generally speaking, articles about McCain and Obama are both positive and negative.

Let me be clear. I truly believe the general media often favor the more liberal candidate. If you are unable to see through the occasional instances of this, turn on Fox. But please stop whining.
