Media-types agree: They will support Obama during presidential debates

Of course they will. The strategy at the debates will be to structure the questions to put President Obama in a better position to attack Romney concerning his business experience. They are so comfortable with this .. they are admitting it on air.

From Ed Morrissey at Hot Air.

Consider this balance for MSNBC.  After the Morning Joe panel openly scoffed at the Barack Obama campaign’s attack ad on Bain Capital yesterday, Hardball came to Obama’s rescue in the evening.

From the transcript, with video below. Chris Matthews asks Mark Halperin how Obama can stand up to Mitt Romney’s knowledge of what actually happened (the truth) during his time at Bain Capital. Halperin answered…

I don’t think he needs to, I think in a debate he can bumper-sticker it and make it clear.  And again, the press — this is one of these instances where the press is very sympathetic to the Obama narrative on Bain, and not all that sympathetic to Governor Romney.  He needs to make an argument so compelling that it finds an audience in the press, if he can do it, and an audience with the public.  I think in a debate, again, we know what the President will say, and I think he’ll be pretty effective.

So in other words, the media will keep the flow moving so Romney never gets the chance to simply tell the truth. I think the subject will be difficult for Romney since many voters are not familiar with how the world of big and small business actually works. He needs to find the right approach while defining what Bain Capital did, why they did it, and why it was a good thing.

Of course, the media and liberals didn’t attack Obama when the Delphi retirees were totally screwed during the auto bailout fiasco, nor mention the thousands who lost their jobs when the government made the corporate business decision to close 1,100 General Motors dealerships. That of course, was a sound business decision since Obama made it…

Total hypocrites.

    Well knock me over with a feather!? As I have stated before, conservative radio and news (and now blogs) were created in response to the overwhelming (or is it overbearing) liberal bias in the media, i.e. they provide, no, return balance to the news.? They just seem radical when compared to the lefty media wing of the statists.
    The libs can’t just take their ball and go home anymore…

    On a side note did see how stupid Chris Matthews was on Jeopardy? He came in last even though they gave him credit a question he got wrong. Can’t fix stupid.

    Did anyone notice the Halo around the One’s head in the graphic for the story (on RVO)??
    Kind of tells a story and gives a message all on its own. Wow!
    Whoever thought to color in an angelic glow around His head deserves an “attaboy” from the spinmeisters. Chilling.

    If Romney continues to espouse conservative ideals-next should be a national right to carry permit,then a “Flat Tax,”he will wipe the floor with Obama. The media has lost all of it’s credibility with all who know how to read.

    This is transparancy – telling you right up front what they intend to do.?
    It just wasn’t the definition most people would use.?

    If reverend Wright is getting $150,000 to keep his mouth shut,? how much are these guys getting to spit out this garbage??
    There is nothing liberal about a one sided story.??Wake up liberals, the progressives have taken over your party.? They just want?you to stay asleep?until?after this November’s vote.?

    The media gland handed Romney through the primaries just to ensure that he’s the? only alternative to ?bama.? This guarantees either ?bama or a mushy democrat retread.? But now that Romney is the republican candidate,? the media will try to cut his man-berries off by November.? Romney is being portrayed as a felon for the hair cutting story…
