For those of you who are Obama supporters and see this title listed and start to react by thinking "Wow, wait, this is an unfair statement", hold on to your opinion for a minute while I say:

1) Goldberg does not accuse the media for McCain's loss; there are many reasons for the republican fiasco including the fact that their candidate did not accurately get his message across.

2) Golderg is not making a statement that Obama was a terrible candidate,

What Goldberg is saying is the liberal media did give Obama a pass and because of their unfair bias did not probe some very important issues in an in-depth journalistic manner.

Goldberg states that the media had more interest in reporting on Sarah Palin's wardrobe than they did in Barrack Obama's association and alliance with Reverend Wright, Acoron and Bill Ayers.

Even mainstream TV shows jumped on the Obama as God bandwagon and whereas Obama was treated tenderly by the TV show The View, McCain was asked by Whoppie Goldberg if he was going to make her a slave.

Goldberg strongly points to the hyprocracy of the liberal media who targeted Palin's lack of an ivy league education while all along touting that the liberal theology is in helping the underdog.

The VERY strong point that Goldberg makes is this:

The media, including MSNBC, did not present a balanced way of looking at the candidates.

The media no longer reports, they simply editorialize, manipulate and are unfairly biased.

The bottom line: Beware of the messenger.
