I meant to post this yesterday but I lost track of time. Yesterday morning I had the Today Show on in my bedroom while brushing my teeth in the bathroom, and all of the sudden I hear an epic attack on Matt Lauer. This guy is railing against Matt, saying things such as, "You people loved up Obama in here all through the campaign!" and "You can not sit here and lie to me and say that you honestly believe Sarah Palin is an idiot- I know you don't believe that, but you upped the perception of that, don't lie to me!" Stunned (tooth brush still in mouth), I walked into the bedroom to watch this. I hadn't ever seen a journalist come out against Liberal news media quite this strongly before, and quite frankly: it thrilled
me. You guys might have seen this before, but this guy, John Ziegler, is making a documentary about "How Obama Got Elected and How Sarah Palin was Targeted." Personally, I think what happened to Mrs. Palin was a political witch hunt, so I'm very excited to see this type of journalism.
The Right’s ‘Michael Moore’—but With Facts
By Andrew Buttaro, Assistant Editor for Townhall.com
John Ziegler is a man who always has a mission. As a radio host in Kentucky several years back, his dogged pursuit of a gubernatorial scandal resulted in the Democratic governor’s removal from office. While working the drive-time beat in Los Angeles during the 2004 election, he brought John Kerry’s Iraq gaffe (if you don’t do your homework, the senator warned students, “you get stuck in Iraq”) to national attention. Now he’s at it again, producing a documentary that he promises will “show just how deep in the tank the media was for Barack Obama” during the recent presidential contest.
The film, “Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected,” isn’t due for release until late February, but it has already attracted a good deal of attention. Through interviews and poll data, Ziegler makes the case that the slanted coverage tilted the playing field toward the Illinois Democrat.

I think that more people from the right side should come out like this. I am a believer in the fact that the media virtually elected Barack Obama, so this type of thing is exactly what we need to see: people calling the Liberal news media out on their lies, deciet, and malpractice.
Sorry if this is a repost. Mods can feel free to delete it, but I think it's definitely something we all should know about.
