The Mainstream Media sometimes, well several times a day, really lets loose its left-wing bias against McCain/Palin. A couple of nights ago it was NBC’s turn, again. Can you believe they sent a team to Hanoi, Vietnam to find out if what McCain has said about his prisoner or war experience was true or not? Of course NBC painted the Vietnamese as likable, sympathetic figures that helped McCain instead of torturing and almost killing him. The first person interviewed was Mr. Lavan Lawa who helped pull McCain out of the shallow lake where he landed. No mention of McCain getting a bayonet in the groin or having his arm broken by the mob that “helped” pull him out. Next in the batting box was nurse Nguyen Thi Thanh who McCain has credited for saving his life. Her portrait was probably the only part of the segment close to the truth explaining she gave him medicines and set his broken bones. Last but not least was Mr. Tran Trong Duyet the ex prison director of the infamous Hanoi Hilton prison. Can you guess what he said? That McCain has it all wrong. Duyet explained that there was no torture, that prison officials were inept and friendly and that at night he and McCain would discuss the war while McCain taught him English. In my opinion this was an unbelievable hit piece by NBC that you can see here.
Not to be outdone the supposedly non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates gave us a doozy yesterday. It turns out that Gwen Ifill, the moderator of tonights Vice Presidential Debate, is writing a book that will be named ” The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama” to be released on inauguration day. According to Dick Morris, who was on The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News yesterday, Gwen Ifill is set to make at least $ 300,000.00 if Obama wins or only sell 4 copies is he loses. She has a vested interest, a financial stake they call it, in Obama winning but of course she says she is impartial. Do you buy that? I don’t. Also keep in mind that Ifill was one of the lib biased journalists questioning whether Sarah Palin having 5 kids made her eligible to be Vice President of the USA. Of course Gwen Ifill is an African-American and if anyone dare question her, that person is a racist and a bigot. Sounds familiar? Ifill is already playing the race card while defending herself from detractors. Who also plays the race card? None other than Barack Obama himself.
