I won't reply to your post as a whole because it was repetitive, however I've watched all the news channels I usually watch, ABC, MSNBC, NBC, FOX,
CBS and they all covered Biden's lies. Go to any of their websites and search for info on the VP debate.
As a registered Independent I find it amusing when people try to claim I'm using "far left" tactics. Personally I think all of the candidates
involved have twisted the truth or flat out lied, and that opinion of mine is validated by many sources, which is why making a thread only addressing
one candidates lies seems useless and counter productive to me unless there is some political bias showing or someone is trying, as always, to make a
point about the media.
Well I've seen the media covering this issue, and I haven't seen a bias that goes more toward one person than the other. Of course SNL parodies
Palin, she is an easy target, and News Papers have her on the cover because McCain picking her was a "hot button" issue, and still is.
The same amount of media attention has been put on many of the other candidates, Obama has faced many parodies and coverage that was not equal to the
lack of scrutiny McCain sometimes got.
If Palin weren't a woman who has said some pretty idiot things, and who was picked after a one hour converstaion with McCain, and who has had a lot
of controversy recently surrounding her including being summoned to court and a slew of family issues she wouldn't be so discussed in the media.
That's just the way the cookie crumbles.
