I have no idea how old Yahoo is, nor do I care. This post started rather innocently as I often peek at the Yahoo headlines sometime during the day. Sometimes I even get an inspiration from one of the headlines as with Life Unlock on January 24th. I started paying attention to the headlines and found a trend with their home page…disturbing to me, but not surprising. I think this is a GREAT illustration of the liberal bias that the mainstream media and even many new media outlets adhere to.
Before I continue with sixteen “candles” of Yahoo bias here is a basic rundown of their position:
Sean Hannity dubbed it Palin Derangement Syndrome (“PDS”) as he described the vehement hatred that many liberals feel for McCain’s former running mate in the last presidential election. The vitriol that lefties spew anytime Sarah Palin’s name comes up is mind-numbing and is actually getting laughable. I have some old acquaintances that have found me on facebook and while I don’t do politics on that social medium, others do and some of the stuff they write is h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s! The sad part is that many don’t know enough to even know what they are talking about. They don’t seem to be able to discern between Tina Fey’s character and the real Sarah Palin.
There is a lot of furor over the latest release of stolen classified documents by Wikileaks and their subsequent publication by many media outlets including the New York Times. No surprise that the NYT would publish classified documents that embarrass the United States as they have done in the past. The surprise is perhaps that the documents diminish their lord and president, Barack Hussein Obama.
Departing Democrat Representative Eric Massa gave us a behind the scenes look at how the Obama White House runs its business…the Chicago way. Massa’s stories about his encounters with Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel provide detail on what ends this administration will do to achieve its goals. There were plenty of stories about Emanuels’s language, behavior and outbursts, but they were usually tinged with doubt because of the sources. Massa is a Democrat.

This is my second True American Hero who is not an American. I had planned on another individual for this posting today, but Daniel Hannan’s inspirational words to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown resonated today. I had to travel three hours to attend a meeting today (and three hours back) so I was fortunate to hear his words numerous times.
