Media losses

Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that the media seems to be trying to steer the primaries toward Obama? Let me know how you see it, because I'm noticing some questionable trends.
I guess it's no big deal, because I honestly don't care if Obama or Clinton ultimately becomes president - as long as it's a democrat.
But the media just seems to be ruining it.
Even Yahoo news, which normally seems pretty unbiased about what they post, keeps linking to all these stories about people supporting Obama. Kennedy (check). Some Kansas Governor (check). Not one article about support for Clinton at all, aside from when she "cried."
Which is another point that is pissing me off. These writers are taking minuscule moments throughout these primaries and are making mountains out of them. Clinton and Obama aren't debating they're "flinging insults at one another!!" Or, Clinton didn't become emotional, she "erupts!!" and "cries!!"
Perfect example, is this this piece of shit article.
We've had to put up with eight years of a bullshit government. Along the way, we have dealt with some of the most shoddy journalism in history. And the moment we're on the verge of some real change, these same fucking journalists still haven't learned a goddam thing. They are determined to make the democratic front runners look like idiots stumbling their way to Washington. Just report on the news. Stop trying to create it. No wonder more people watch Jon Stewart.
If you want to sway some ideas, do it in a fucking column.
If this keeps up, we're going to be welcoming in President McCain soon enough.
Looking further into the news coverage, you can find many other articles telling the whole story. Like, for example, how Kennedy's said if Hillary wins the primaries he will support her. In other words, he doesn't care. He just wants a democrat. Plus, there has been no mention of how the folks running California are supporting Clinton, not Obama.
Eh, I need more coffee.
