On the Way to Unity Road...

On his way to Denver on Unity Road, Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania threw a well-deserved verbal grenade at the media.

According to Politico, Rendell "was supposed to give 'closing remarks' during this afternoon’s Shorenstein Center-sponsored panel discussion with all three Sunday show moderators — NBC’s Tom Brokaw, ABC’s George Stephanopoulous and CBS’s Bob Schieffer — but instead, he opened up a can of worms about bias in 2008 election coverage."
"Ladies and gentleman, the coverage of Barack Obama was embarrassing," said Rendell, in the ballroom at Denver's Brown Palace Hotel. "It was embarrassing."
And that's not even the half of it. No need to worry, though. The system is just hunky dory. Grandpa Brokaw told a cheering crowd of scribes who like a pack of hyenas had turned on Rendell that Tweety and Olby were not the "only voices" at MSNBO.

A loud obnoxious Tweety "HA" to that one. From media coverage to DNC delegate theft, the entire process was rigged.

Geez, HL, I clicked on this because I thought maybe you were on the way to Unity Road. For the sake of your blood pressure, I hoped so. Obviously not.

Oh, well. You have one vote. Go ahead, vote for McCain. Plenty of other people have voted for Obama, and will do so again.

By the way, with all your howling, how is it that you think the American people are too dumb to see the truth? MSNBC isn't the only news source, not by a long shot. Thanks to the internet, people are better informed than ever before. They just didn't buy your argument. It's called democracy.
I'm impressed that Gov. Rendell utilized an opportunity to call out MSNBC/NBC on their ridiculous primary coverage. I suppose we're suppose to just "get over it" and forget the sorry spectacle of MSNBC being just as or more repulsive than FOX. Sorry, no. Media is too important to our democratic process (what's left of it) to give a pass. MSNBC was absolutely shameful, and yes, embarrassing.
