Confronting Liberal Media Bias

Gas and Oil (Balancing out the Liberal Media Bias with information not reported on, nor emphasized or just flat out biased that may have a negative effect toward values voters)

Morning Bell: More Than ANWR-"In April 2007 only 41% of Americans favored drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). Today, 57% of Americans favor drilling in coastal and wilderness areas currently off limits....Just last week liberals in Congress rejected a proposal to allow drilling for oil 50 miles of the U.S. coast. The U.S. Minerals Management Service estimates that 86 billion barrels of oil and 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas can be found along the U.S. outer continental shelf. And there is also plenty of energy currently banned from production onshore, too. The Department of Interior estimates onshore energy in the West and Alaska contains 31 billion carrels of oil and 231 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. That 31 billion barrels of oil represents U.S. imports from Saudi Arabia for 50 years...Furthermore, Shell Oil scientists have already conducted small-scale field tests that if replicated on a large scale would make developing the oil shale profitable at $20 a barrel. Are liberals in Congress anxious to see this oil help American consumers? No. Just last week they voted to extend their ban on oil shale development...The other liberal objection to increased domestic energy production is that the additional supplies will not affect prices for a decade. We will let Jay Leno respond: “Democrats said it would not do any good because it would not produce oil for 10 years. You know, same thing they said 10 years ago.”"

Military Successes Drive Anbar Casualties to Post-Invasion Low-"In 2005, Bellavia received the Conspicuous Service Cross, the highest award for military valor in New York state. He is also the author of "House to House," which chronicles the Battle of Fallujah in graphic detail.In downtown Fallujah, "a global jihadist all-star team" was assembled to take on the U.S. military, Bellavia recalled. "The majority of the fighting was inside and not outside, up close and personal," he said. "That's what I experienced. That's what my peers experienced. When we are talking about hand-to-hand combat, there is basically no opportunity to engage your weapon system. I was bitten, had my hair pulled and my eyes gouged. These are not wounds you expect in 21st century combat."

Is Obama smearing Rush?-"News item: Barack Obama campaign starts new Web site to fight smears from political opponents at http://www.fightthesmears.com/. The first smear mentioned: "LIE: Rush Limbaugh says a tape exists of Michelle Obama using the word 'whitey' from the pulpit of Trinity United." Well. No. This is what Limbaugh said: "The rumor is -- and we don't like dealing with rumors here -- but the rumor is that Michelle Obama from the pulpit of this church used the term 'whitey.' Some are saying be very careful with this because she might have said 'why'd he,' why did he, the contraction 'why'd he' instead of 'whitey.' " He added: "I can't find anybody who's seen it." So while Limbaugh was happy to wallow in the rumor, he was careful not to claim the tape exists."

Rush Blamed for "Whitey" Rumor-"BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: This Michelle (My Belle) Obama "whitey" rumor, the tape and so forth, the DVD that was out there, I heard about this for two weeks before I ever commented on this. I heard about it for two weeks. I didn't talk about it. I didn't repeat it. I didn't reference it, and then all of a sudden I see that some in the Drive-By Media think that Hannity has the tape and that he is holding the tape. Then some other people said the RNC had the tape and they're going to hold the tape 'til October, they were not going to release it prior to the Democrat nomination fight finishing 'cause they didn't want to get rid of Obama because they think he's the weakest candidate of the two, since Hillary was on her way out, let's leave her out. And then after two or three weeks of this, I did mention it as a rumor going around 'cause it had reached critical mass and there were people saying that they had seen it, but they wouldn't produce it...If they're going to have a website here called "fight the smears" or whatever. Well, I'm thinking I might put up my own website, "fight the Obama smears" website, the "fight the Drive-By Media smears" website."-Rush Limbaugh web site.
