Media ties to Obama administration

Yeah, we all know the major media outlets basically worship Obama, and if they don't they are biased towards him. Contrary to popular belief, gun crime and violence is actually DOWN in the U.S, but do you think a prObama media will report that? Never. These three media outlets should not be trusted to make honest reports. If one of these news sources is your main source for news, I want you to know they are definitely partial to Obama.

What's hilarious is that MSNBC isn't on the list despite obvious expectations. By thread logic that means MSNBC is impartial, ha.
Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

What are we supposed to discuss? That the media and the government are both run by wealthy powerful individuals?

Welcome to the 19th century. Man you'll have a blast in the 20th but the 21st will make your head spin. Also your name is hilarious in that you're tilting at windmills. Suspiciously so.

Please now present a diagram showing ties between Romney/Republicans and the media.

Please also provide evidence that the relationships mentioned lead to bias among the news stations.

Lolno.
Really you have only just discovered now that people in government have ties to people in the private sector? Good work man!
The problem is that this is the case for ALL Industries and all presidents, like ever. So sorry to disappoint you, there's really nothing to this.

Would you be implying that this fine gentlemen, having made only two posts, and named after a fictional character most well known for fighting imaginary monsters, is not entirely and completely sincere in his most earnest attempt to inform us of how "major media outlets basically worship Obama"

My word, I do believe that is trollnaming, and you should refrain from such vile and contemptuous conduct in the future. Good day to you sir.

I SAID GOOD DAY!

It is one thing for family members to just happen to work in the bureaucracy. It is one thing for lobbyists and interest groups to try and influence. It is a complete other for one to have a family member appointed to a high and accessible position, basically in return for support.

Probama sounds like an ingredient in yoghurt that's meant to solve some non-specific digestion problem.

No it really isn't, sorry.
Also, please prove the "in return for support" part of your delusion.
Are you equally concerned about the collusion and revolving door concerning government officials and, say the banking industry or the defense industry?
Yeah, I didn't think so.
