I just had a little free time so I decided to go to the library and pick up the New York Times. I really didnt care much about the news stories, I just wanted to get to the infamous Op-Ed page. Now, before I continue I must say that for anyone out there who doesnt watch Foxnews because you think it is biased and slants to the right, consider this: In todays edition of the NYT, there is not one positive column about President Bush, his administration, or his policies. There is a column that says Bush is never held accountable for anything that goes wrong on his watch and that 'punishment is meted out to the foot soldiers and middle management.' The next column bashes the Bush Administration and the Office of Homeland Security for doing far too little to protect our ports by allowing a company from the United Arab Emirates to run some of the operations. The third column complains about the No Child Left Behind Act, and says that the Government is under funding it which is causing it to fail, when actually funding for education is higher under President Bush than any other President. The fourth article is about a Pakistani man who is mad that the US isnt helping the Pakistani people nearly enough with economic aid and only giving them military help. Anyone else finding a theme here? Next there was an article writting Bashing Bush's stance on human cloning and stem cell reseach. He is upset that Bush asked Congress to pass legislation outlawing human cloning "in all its forms." And the final editorial in todays New York Times actually asks Vice President Dick Cheney to step down as VP in a lovely little column titled, "Mr. Vice President, its Time to Go."
Ok, all those columns appeared in just one day of print, and some people still believe that this newspaper and its subsidiaries arent bias, yet they always roll their eyes when anyone else mentions Foxnews. Even after this proof, most liberals will still make excuses saying things like "well its not our fault Bush makes so many mistakes," going on to say that they are just telling the truth. Well thats just nice, but at least throw in some other points of view so that your bias isnt so friggin obvious. I hope this makes some of you realize why the Presidents job is so difficult, would you like to sit in the White House making important decision while the people who are reporting the news hate your guts? What makes it worth it for me is that we always get the last laugh...everytime there's an election baby.
