Default Former Braves Pitcher John Rocker Will Vote for Romney 'By Default'

In the "Media" section on purpose...

...because if you DARE use guilt-by-association with Obama, you're committing a felony, but it's A-OK to associate Mitt Romney with a former baseball pitcher whose only claim to fame is a rant...

Reported on by ABC News and distributed through Yahoo...

Former Braves Pitcher John Rocker Will Vote for Romney 'By Default'

Quote:
Former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker, who was suspended from baseball in 1999 for racist and homophobic comments, has pledged his support for Mitt Romney. Or rather, for anyone who is not Barack Obama.

"Like hopefully a majority of Americans out there, I'll be voting against President Obama this year," Rocker told WND. "I won't necessarily be voting for the Republican candidate as much as I will be voting against Obama."
When Communist Party USA and the Democratic Socialists of America endorse Obama, it's not news, but when it's a racist baseball pitcher from the 90s for Romney, you can hear the keyboards at ABC clicking away...

If you're comparing ABC News to Fox or Beck or Rush, then the issue is with you, not me...

That IS the point...

The people who show negatives against Obama and positives for Romney are partisans who are partisans and say they are partisans...

The people who show negatives against Romney and Positives for Obama are THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, who CLAIM they are neutral and objective...

"Anti-Obama stuff/Pro-Romney stuff" is regulated to the bloggers and pundits while the MAINSTREAM JOURNALISTS dive headfirst into "Anti-Romney stuff/Pro-Obama stuff"...

Sorry, FOX is MSM......


Yep, they're number one all the time in several categories. They might not have the largest viewership but, they aren't morris code vs. HD by any means........


~ I get your point btw. All forms of news are biased one way or the other. There is no unbiased news broadcasts in America. They don't exist.....

I thank thee for promoting these fine outlets. However, more thoughtful people, who wish to give these matters serious consideration, will recognize that cnredd's comments pertained to the mainstream media, so favored by the less cognitive classes.

Fox is main stream. About half the country listens to it.
But I could care less what baseball player votes for what candidate.

Well ... look, let's be fair here ... one of Fox's main slogans is "fair and balanced" and you gotta admit they aren't exactly Obama-friendly on that station. With all due respect, both sides are plenty guilty of this stuff. I mean I tend to be conservative too on the issues, but I think your assessment is a little skewed here ... that's just me.

The key here in all this, is "mainstream" does not constitute objective. Even if CNN or Foxnews (or any other) IS mainstream.

Actually it is about all FOX does. They claim to be fair and balanced. Just watch the Daily Show and they will show you FOX news partisanship.

That is outstanding logic. Watch a partisan show they can show you their partisan views against another network because their political idealologies differ from their own.

I think life has officially given up on any hope of you shedding your extreme bias and using your brain.

Just go back and watch Bill Maher. He'll educate you. And by educate, I mean tell you you what you want to hear and give extreme partisan views that match your own.
