Obviously the U.S. media wants Obama to be president.
"News" channels like CNN are doing whatever they can to give Obama a free pass for his close association with racist, anti-America pastor Jeremiah Wright. No one is actually unbiased or purely objective, but journalists are supposed to at least feign like they are.
I'd love to play poker with Anderson Cooper, he has no problem showing his hand. Good grief. Can he be journalistically serious when he says Obama's pastor's comments have "nothing to do with the issues the country is facing" or analyzing Obama's judgment in associating with Wright is "Completely off track".
Racism, Race relations, class-strife, and anti-American sentiment are definitely issues this country is dealing with.
