The ferment in Wisconsin is no workers' uprising against the rich and powerful. It is instead political muscle-flexing by a well-funded special interest group, which is limbering up for President Obama's re-election bid. Obama's campaign, operating as Organizing for America, is bussing protesters to the state capitol...

Government unions in Wisconsin perfectly match the definition of "special interests," a term Obama often invokes. Four of the top six Wisconsin contributors to the 2010 elections were labor unions, with the state's teachers union giving $119,342 and the Wisconsin chapter of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees spending $83,888. The teachers union gave 96 percent of its money to Democrats, while Wisconsin AFSCME gave Democrats every penny.

Talking about conservative versus liberal bias in the media, this article is an excellent example.

Organizing for America is to WI, as the U.S. is to China:

""The schemes of some hostile Western forces attempting to Western and split us are intensifying, and they are waving the banner of defending rights to meddle in domestic conflicts and maliciously create all kinds of incidents," Chen told the magazine, which is published by the official Xinhua news agency."

Funny though, that the Communist Party recognizes that the rural populace must not be left behind as China marches on to the #1 economy in the world, while so many of our right wing politicians are perfectly fine with stomping on our downtrodden while elevating the almighty corporatists' status to that or kings in our

I'm not sure what your point is. What was busted?

This is an opinion piece from a conservative. I don't think it really fits the meaning of "media bias".

Well, which is it? With a period or without?

Doesn't matter, does it?

For some reason, iVillage said that it didn't go through, so I did it again. I didn't realize that something that silly and stupid would be fodder for you to hassle me about.

Now, back to the topic on hand, do you have anything to say about Walker's statements to the person he thought was Koch?
