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.

Wow! What a collection. Good job.

BTW - I read somewhere that the "debt clock, we built it" photo was a Photoshop that the dumb MSM fell for.

Do they really believe that the Republicans would be too stupid to have not noticed that? Good grief...

Great job, Hack. It sure will be interesting to see the headlines from the DNC compared to these you've collected. I'm guessing they will be a bit cheerier to say the least.

It's all they have. Isn't that pathetic.

I think even stupid people have the capacity to reject 'all negative all the time'.

Fantastic post, Hack. I can't wait to see your follow-up post DNC. That should be an eye-opener for anyone who is still snoozing.

All the headlines are so true Hack, why so surprised?
