Media bias?

Remember when George W. Bush was in office, and the gas prices took a spike?

The major news organizations had reporters with television cameras camped in gas stations interviewing people filling their vehicles with fuel. They would tell stories about how they could hardly afford to pay their bills or even buy groceries, because of the high prices of fuel.

Then, they would cut back to the newsroom, and that reporter would tell us what was behind the situation. It usually went something like this: that greedy George Bush was conspiring with the “evil, big oil companies” for obscene profits.

Gas prices have more than doubled under Obama, and there has hardly been a peep out of the major networks (ABC, NBC, CBS). The news organizations need to get back to reporting the facts, and let we the people decide what it means instead of the news reporter interpreting it for us with their own political slant or bias.
