It Official Brian Williams of NBC News thinks that the American Public is Dumber than toast. He was interviewed on CNBC this after noon and was asked if he thought there was a coverage bias toward Senator Barack Obama. His answer, it wasn’t bias, the media was just trying to educate the American Public. EDUCATE?!?!. Just what the hell are they trying to educate the American Public about? How to be a crappy journalist? HOW STUPID DOES BRIAN WILLIAMS BELIEVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE? Does he really think we will buy that “Educate” nonsense?

Williams went on to say “Bias in the Eyes of the beholder”. Hey Mr. Williams, you read any of the polls lately, the American People think the Mainstream Media is in the tank for Obama. Guess what the beholders see bias. Wake up and see the ratings drop. America thinks you and your “colleagues” are doing a LOUSY JOB!

Nightly News’ Anchor: Pro-Obama Bias is ‘In the Eye of the Beholder’ By Jeff Poor

Is there a pro-Obama bias in the media? Only if you at it from a certain point-of-view according to “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams. Despite allegations of just the opposite, the wall-to-wall coverage of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama’s trip to the Middle East then to Europe wasn’t a sign of bias – it was just the media attempting to “educate” according to Williams.

Williams appeared on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on July 28 to promote the broadcast of his interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to be aired on the July 28 “NBC Nightly News.” “Closing Bell” host Maria Bartiromo asked Williams if the media were treating Democratic presidential hopeful as a “darling.” Williams dismissed the allegation. “I think it is in the eye of the beholder,” Williams said. “As I always say, there was that great New York clothier Sy Syms. We all grew up listening to those radio ads in the New York area and what did he used to say? ‘An educated consumer is our best customer.’ The journalism needs to be judged on what we covered of that trip, how we covered it, what we said. It was a big story last week. The crowd I covered in Berlin was a big story, as was the visit to Paris and London and the Middle East before it.”

Williams told Bartiromo the coverage of each would even out – even though the coverage was very light when presumptive Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain made his Middle Eastern trip with Sens. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn. and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., back in March. “So, I think it will all even out,” Williams said. “We’ll certainly approach the entire campaign with fairness. And obviously, we try to keep our coverage of Sen. McCain the same way.”
