wakkowarner, in his last comment, said I should quit reading right-wing blogs. The reason I do is that I can't depend on the mainstream media to tell me the truth about Barack Obama.

I'm far from the only one who's noticed this. Orson Scott Card, a Democrat, an SF author, and a newspaper columnist, lets his co-workers in the news business have it right between the eyes in a column he wrote for the Greensboro (NC) Rhinoceros Times, and reprinted in the Meridian magazine. It's well worth reading:

You're just the public relations machine of the Democratic Party, and it's time you were all fired and real journalists brought in, so that we can actually have a news paper in our city.
