What happened to journalism in 2008?

Where is the media outrage?

We hear that The LA Times has a video tape that won't make Obama look good with Jewish voters:

"But the Democratic presidential nominee hasn't held a full press conference -- submitting himself to more than a handful of questions from his whole press corps -- in more than a month, since Sept. 24, 2008, in Clearwater, Fla." (ABC)

This is the same Obama who promised to do "town hall" debates.

This is the same Obama who is getting a free ride from the media.

This is the same Obama campaign that is boycotting a Florida station that "dared" ask a question.

A few days ago, when asked by a new acquaintance what I did for a living, I replied that I was "a writer," because I couldn't bring myself to admit to a stranger that I'm a journalist."

The bias is self evident.
