Media Bias Covering the 2012 Republican Convention (PHOTOS)

The 2012 GOP Convention is over and I have spent the entire week monitoring the reporting of every media outlet I could find. I scoured the web for ridiculous bias and it wasn't hard to find. As expected, the coverage of the Republican Convention was revolting and overtly partisan, with media personalities from all networks and outlets shamelessly expressing, both directly and indirectly, their liberal contempt for Republicans and Romney-Ryan ticket.

A few standouts before we get in to the photo essay:
-Before the convention started, both Andrea Mitchell and Chuck Todd of NBC News exclaimed in separate incidents that "the shadow of Bush and Katrina" was hanging over the GOP Convention. 
-Chris Matthews of MSNBC completely went unhinged, first launching a race baiting tirade against Reince Priebus then claiming that the GOP speakers mentioning the word "Chicago" was coded racism.
-David Chalian of Yahoo News was fired after being caught on camera saying, "the Romneys are happy to party while black people drown". 
-MSNBC's coverage of the convention deliberately and conveniently shielded viewers from seeing any Republican minority on stage, axing coverage of speeches given by Mia Love, Artur Davis, Ted Cruz and others.
-ABC News covered less than two minutes of Condoleeza Rice's speech, conveniently choosing to broadcast a Hurricane Isaac update at that very time.
-Of all the networks I watched, PBS was by far the worst with the panel headed by Mark Shields and Gwen Ifill. They literally picked apart every single speech given like vultures and interrogated at length every Republican interviewed by the panel during the course of the week. Maybe they don't like the idea of being out a job when Republicans cut taxpayer funding for PBS! 

Now to the photos...(keep the barf down, if you can)

CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, LATimes, NYTimes, Politico, Reuters, Boston Globe, Washington Post, Yahoo! News and others.

The Obama loving media did their part this week and the above pictures are just a small taste. I will be gathering another collection of media stories next week of coverage for the Democratic Convention in Charlotte. They will all be published here.

2012 Republican National Convention Finale: Olympians, Eastwood, Rubio, and President Mitt Romney

I didn't expect much more than the usual politician double talk at the final night of the GOP Convention but boy was I wrong. Tonight featured a beefed up lineup of real people with real stories and made an excellent case for Mitt Romney.

The night kicked off with a host of "regular" people, friends and acquaintances of the Romneys. Several close friends, church members, and business partners shared personal stories of the love, dedication, and commitment to serving others that Romney has exhibited through the years. Their personal accounts were compelling. So compelling in fact, that the savage liberal vultures on the PBS panel I was watching, Mark Shields, David Brooks, and Gwen Ifill to name a few, had nothing but words of praise and admiration soon after. I was absolutely shocked.

Not long after, another powerful voice stepped up to bat for Romney. A self admitted "liberal Democrat", Jane Edmonds had served in Romney's cabinet while in Massachusetts. Her speech was direct, emotional, and quite entertaining!

Soon after, as emotion and enthusiasm began to rise in the arena, the crowd was introduced to a large group of past and present American Olympians, including gold medalists Kim Rhode, Derek Parra, and Michael Eruzione. All had the same thing to say...We want Mitt!

Following that was a stirring and well crafted video, which I freely admit...was nothing more than political propaganda...but it was extremely well crafted and produced political propaganda!

And oh my...Clint Eastwood decided to pop in for a little chat and that's exactly what it was. He didn't give a speech. He talked to the audience like one would talk to someone over dinner. "You see, you, me...we own this country!". "We are HIS boss." And just like everyone in the arena and America wanted to hear..."Go ahead...make my day." Enjoy.

Up next, the budding star Marco Rubio gave a stirring speech invoking the true virtues of American exceptionalism. Describing the burdens of expansive government under Obama and the liberals Rubio angrily cried, "Those are the kinds of things immigrants who come here are running away from!"

And finally, the man the whole night revolved around and the speech everyone had waited for. The next president of our country, Mitt Romney gave a great speech to cap off the night. His most effective line of the night? He looked straight into the camera after saying that Obama had promised to "heal the planet" and firmly said, "My to help you and your family."

It is now official. Romney has fired up the base like he needed to. Mitt Romney had over ten Olympians, personal friends, and Clint Eastwood speak for him tonight. Obama will have Jimmy Carter, Eva Longoria, and Sandra Fluke speaking for him next week. Translation? The election is over.

The Republican National Convention 2012: PURE RACISM and SEXISM

Is that why 19 women and 17 minorities were given prime time speaking slots at the convention? Of course, they aren't REAL women and minorities.... *eye roll* 

Just a few of the GOP's stars featured at the RNC 2012...

Mia Love, candidate for Congress from Utah

Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana

Susana Martinez, Governor of New Mexico

Tim Scott, Representative from South Carolina

Luis Fortuño, Governor of Puerto Rico

Artur Davis, former Representative from Alabama

Nikki Haley, Governor of South Carolina

Ted Cruz, candidate for US Senate from Texas

Marco Rubio, Senator from Florida

Quico Canseco, Representative from Texas

Condi Rice, former US Secretary of State

Didn't someone say a long time ago, judge someone not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character? The Democrats do the exact opposite. And MSNBC's decision to shield viewers from every single minority speech at the RNC is exactly what they accuse Republicans of daily...Racism.

In closing I have just one question...why do Democrats hate white people?
