WIOD News Bias- setting the stage for the next Obama excuse

Unread postby anthonysouthard » Wed Nov 07, 2012 9:23 pm

(I am posting this the day after Obama's re-election)
According to my local radio news, stocks plunged over 300 ponts due to fears that the looming fiscal cliff will send the US economy back into recession if congress fails to do their job. This was the actual news report. This wasn't a talk personality's opinion, or a discussion among comentators. It was included with the weather, traffic, etc.. The "fiscal cliff" has been there for a long time now- so it really can't be isolated for blame on this one day. Besides... The drop was obviously due to Obama's re-election. If anything, it may reflect concern that the Obama win will make avoiding the "fiscal cliff" more difficult without harming the economy.
Anyway, the larger problem with their "news report" was the part where WIOD's local news people have already decided that it will be congress's fault if compromise can't be achieved. They have decided this before they even know what the Democratic position is going to be. The media just finished their campaign to re-elect Obama yesterday- and they are already building up his next excuse for why the country is going to go back into recession.
