You're so right!! The NY Times was once know as "The Newspaper of Record". In high school we did projects for history and they were actually a reference source.
In one of our 2 local newspapers (the one of 2 I haven't cancelled yet), there was good news about Oblamer and no bad news. At the same time there was no good news about Romney and just bad news.
All papers and visual media had fun with big bird (like the General's affair) rather than deal with anything substantial that could in any way harm the Annointed One. I just wish folks who voted for him could be the only ones negatively impacted. Unfortunately, we'll be flushed down the crapper with the liberal turds.
