Why I Don't Like To Watch The Evening News

If I ever have a heart attack, the chances are it will occur between 6:30 and 7 p.m. on a weeknight. It is during that 30-minute time period that my blood pressure is consistently elevated to dangerous levels. We no longer have evening news - we only get evening commentaries from the liberal left. No longer is there even an attempt made at objectivity. The blatant campaigning that the majority of news outlets have done for Obama has, I fear, forever damaged the Fourth Estate.

Newspapers across the country are seeing subscription rates continue to decline. To be fair, this is in part due to the increased availability of "know-it-now" news via the Internet. However, newspapers have always had as their strength local coverage, but even that is not holding sway over readers any longer. My local paper is incredibly one-sided on their editorial page and in their coverage of issues. I canceled my subscription because I refused to help their advertising rates by increasing their subscription base. I would rather pay more for a single copy of the paper when I buy it than support their editorial board in any way. I am not alone in this.

Thankfully, there may be a few honest reporters left. Here's one at ABC News who recognizes the blatant bias .

Just One of the Reasons I'm Not Voting For Obama

In Sleeping Beauty, the Prince climbs the jagged mountain, slays the dragon and rescues the Princess. That's a wonderful picture of the Gospel - Jesus the Prince slays the Serpent (Satan) in order to save His Princess/Bride - The Church. Chivalry is a product of a Christian worldview. Men protect women. That's why most conservative Christians were adamantly against women being included in the Selective Service process. The actual argumentation is, obviously, much more developed than I'm presenting here.

Obama doesn't share this perspective. He believes the restriction on women serving in combat should be revisited and he believes women should be included in the Selective Service Process. Read it here.
