GOP Debate Nails Media Bias (Video)

GOP presidential candidates turned the tables on the media during January 7th evening debate in New Hampshire on ABC .  Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich responded to a highly emotional and liberally slanted question about homosexual marriage. His comments were arguably the most important point of the evening:

I just want to raise the point about the news media bias. You don’t hear the opposite question asked. Should the Catholic Church be forced to close its adoption services in Massachusetts because it won’t accept gay couples? Which is exactly what the state has done. Should the Catholic Church be driven out of providing charitable services in the District of Columbia because it won’t give in to secular bigotry? Should the Catholic Church find itself discriminated against by the Obama administration on key delivering of service because of the bias and bigotry of the administration? The bigotry question goes both ways, and there’s a lot more anti-Christian bigotry today than there is concerning the other side and none of it gets covered by the news media.

Debate moderators Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos quickly changed the subject so they wouldn’t have to deal with the very real issue of liberal media bias.  Gingrich received a loud round of applause for his comments, and obviously benefited from turning the tables and exposing the media’s liberal bent.

The Left’s Heart of Darkness

A great post from Bruce Walker at Here’s an excerpt:

Conservatives sometimes get too distracted by dollars and deficits and debt. These matter, of course — they matter a great deal in political life. But the deconstruction of the American economy is a consequence, not a cause, of our fundamental problem, which is moral.

The road back requires first of all that politicians who are asked to cure social problems be allowed to tell the truth about why these problems exist. The values given us from above are beyond the reach of leftist pygmies, and the laws prescribed for us by God have definite and absolute consequences which ripple throughout our lives and the lives we touch.

Most of us secretly know that the hedonistic and atheistic system foisted upon our culture by leftist bosses is a suicide pill. Let us hope — better, let us pray — that those men and women who carry the banner of conservatism into political combat have the courage to speak that too often unspoken truth.
