“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Sarah Palin: The Backlash Against the Bias!

Rasmussen Reports:

"Eighty percent (80%) of Republicans say reporters are trying to hurt the GOP vice presidential nominee, and 28% of Democrats agree. Only six percent (6%) of Republicans – and even fewer Democrats (4%)– think the reporting is intended to help her."

So what those who have an opinion on media bias are telling to Rasmussen, is that Republicans believe 13 to 1, and Democrats 7 to 1, that the news media is trying to hurt Sarah Palin rather than help her.

MSNBC reports on the backlash from the Sarah Palin US Weekly Cover with the politically-motivated title, "Babies, Lies and Scandal." There are reports that anywhere from 5,000-10,000 subscribers canceled their subscription based on this bias.

Isn't US WEEKLY one of those pure gossip rags? I think one (or two or three or four) covered John Edwards' affair.
