We knew this Eastern Media Elite pulled the strings of power. We knew the pols really kissed up to them in private (like Romney in your video) and only whined about the EME when times got tough on the campaign trail.

But we didn't know about how things actually worked behind the scenes. Thanks for showing us.

Absolutely hilarious! Please keep it up! It's this kind of silly little mockery of the "elitist" charge against you that serves to confirm the charge as true. It shows that you just don't get it. Tells us more about yourself than it does about those "redneck" conservatives.

Oh, and thank you Deep Blue for exposing your prejudice and ignorance of your opponents. You must make the media you support very proud. It just confirms our suspicions of you.

With respect to the so-called liberal media 'bias'- if having a respect for the truth, for education, for peace, for prosperity and for progress makes the media liberal then so be it.

As for the rednecks who call in to talk radio, you people would have been better off if you'd been good kids, had listened to your parents, done your homework and become productive members of (literate) society.

Switching back and forth from NPR to Rush Limbaugh is an unbelievable contrast. The NPR people are thoughtful and intelligent; the Limbaugh people are ignorant and, though professing to be evangelicals, full of hate.

I understand how people can get frustrated when they get confused. That's why we have to re-engineer our educational system. If we don't, Republican lies will continue to rule the day- and the Chinese will eat our lunch.

So, Republican knuckleheads, progress is coming and you - or your kids - better get on that train. Years ago Singapore's PM promised to make Australia "Asia's poor white trash." Nowadays, they have bigger fish to fry.

Republicans are incredible hypocrites. McCain married into a corrupt, organized crime family and used those connections to pursue his Presidential ambitions, along the way supposedly fighting corruption as a maverick.

Please.

And the Bush people are worse. Prescott was part of the Eastern Establishment that didn't want FDR to distribute opportunity.

H.W. was sent to Texas as part of the Eastern Establishments takeover of the South. And Jeb grabbed Florida.

They are all fake.

It has been obvious to many outside the New York/Washington cocktail circuit that he mainstream media has a liberal bias. This bias has been documented by researchers over the years.

This year it has been more apparent than ever before. The mainstream media has embraced Obama completely and has shown their favortism in every possible fashion.

They first turned on Hillary Clinton and helped drive her out of the race and now have turned their ire on Sarah Palin.

It is unfortunate but true. If one does not belong to their preconceived ideas then one is open to unfair attacks.

P.S. MSNBC is by far the worst. Keith Olberman, Chris Matthews, David Gregory and Andrea Mitchell are all competing to be Obama's press secretary if he is elected.

Sarah Palin's National Enquirer scandal is one story the Eastern Media Elite should stay away from. Investigate, but don't report the rumors until you've got facts. Let the media plebs carry the ball until then.
