Stupid Media Bias Tricks: The EMBRACING THE SUCK Edition

This was a strange week in the world of the media, we learned that a selfie could dominate the coverage of a great man's funeral, especially when it is accompanied by the traditional wife look of death and that the word Obamacare should be called the "O" word because it's very racist.  We also got another example of Al Sharpton being the only "Reverend" I know who doesn't believe in the 9th commandment about bearing false witness.

This week President Obama won an award for lie of the year and still repeated the IRS scandal lie about a few rogue people in the Cincinnati office. Chris Matthews told us that Mitch McConnell hates America and John Kerry lied about the Bush Administration.

Since last Friday, the Huffington Post declared that Pro-Abortion people have religious rights but Pro-Life people don't. CNN had a balanced debate on Climate Change that really pissed off Media Matters and the Democrats started running bogus 2014 ads early.

It was also a big week for Antisemitism and anti-Israel statements.

Below are the stupid media bias tricks hinted at above plus many more from the last seven days. Headlines are linked to the full article (and will open a new window). When it is a broadcast story the video/audio will also be found at the end of the link.
So Embrace the Suck..click on the links and read about the stupid bias tricks of the last week:
