Media Bias ------ Part 673892

Saturdays primary race results were published this morning, (Sunday) with the "who's surprised" bias our mainstream media presents with their left wing liberal agenda. They, (the MSM) no longer even attempt to show a semblance of balance while the Democratic Party heads for a long drawn out battle to choose their nominee. While Hillary Clinton was swept in this weekends primarys, according to our MSM it is John McCain that "deserved" the ugly side of their stories:

Obama Sweeps Clinton in Louisiana, Nebraska, Washington

By Eric Pianin Staff Writer

Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) swept to solid victories over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y) in Louisiana, Nebraska and Washington state yesterday, an impressive showing that left the two Democrats in a virtual tie for national delegates but with Obama gaining momentum.

On the Republican side, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee delivered two humiliating defeats to Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) in the Kansas Republican presidential caucuses and the Louisiana primary, but barely lost to McCain in Washington state, according to an Associated Press projection.

Obama Gets Convincing Wins in 3 States

Published: February 10, 2008

Senator Barack Obama won decisive victories over Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton in Washington, Louisiana and Nebraska on Saturday, giving him an impressive sweep going into a month when the Democratic nominating contests are expected to favor him.

The successes come just as Mr. Obama is building a strong advantage over Mrs. Clinton in raising money, providing important fuel for the nominating contests ahead. Still, the results were expected to do little to settle the muddle in the delegate race that resulted after the wave of contests last Tuesday in which the two candidates split up states from coast to coast.

In Republican contests on Saturday, Mike Huckabee won in Kansas, an embarrassing setback for Senator John McCain as he tries to rally the party around him as the nominee. The candidates were battling in Louisiana and Washington, where the results were too close to call. The Associated Press called the Louisiana race for Mr. Huckabee and the Washington race for Mr. McCain.


The Democratic race moved into a new, post-Super Tuesday phase as McCain flunked his first ballot test since becoming the Republican nominee-in-waiting. He lost the Kansas caucuses to Mike Huckabee, gaining less than 24 percent of the vote.


WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Many voters in Saturday's Republican contests showed they're not yet ready to support Sen. John McCain as their party's nominee while Sen. Barack Obama cut into Sen. Hillary Clinton's lead in the race for Democratic delegates.


The Democrat sweeps Louisiana, Nebraska and Washington by wide margins. Huckabee takes Kansas and Louisiana.

Sen. Barack Obama narrowed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's lead in the fight for Democratic presidential delegates Saturday, sweeping three states, while Sen. John McCain hit a detour on his march to the Republican nomination.Obama won Louisiana, Nebraska and Washington by wide margins as former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee won Kansas and Louisiana, and McCain won a tight race in Washington.

Clinton and Obama remain locked in a showdown that might not be settled until the August convention in Denver, and each sought to make the case on the trail Saturday that each is better situated to defeat McCain.

The results show that despite McCain's commanding lead for the Republican nomination, social conservatives are still willing to back someone else. And they reflect the continuing divide within the party.,0,7024993.story

So, while Hillary gets swept in all three states, it's John McCain that is humiliated, embarrassing, and flunked while his party is continuing to be divided.

Can some one (any of these news outlets) please explain to me why Hillary Clinton was not embarrassed and humiliated while she flunked every test this weekend? And whose party will be more divided when the Democrats gather in Denver this spring?

(Note to media outlets: You all flunked this weekend......again)

Update: Even while Ed Morrissey at Captain's Quarters is a confirmed conservative, at least his post remains balanced enough to keep his bias in check. Something our dear media friends have no intention of doing.
