Gasoline Prices - the Hypocritical Media Again 

It's very interesting, but not unpredictable. Gasoline prices have risen about 25% in the last month or so (from $1.99 to $2.49 in our area). Where's the screaming media? Nowhere to be found. Why could this be? Oh, the DFL is in control at the MN State Capitol and the Democrats are in control in Washington, DC. Can you imagine the outcry if the Republicans had control of either of these bodies of government?

Related point: The Bush economic program has resulted in a booming stock market (the earlier recession was a holdover from the last of the Clinton days), highest percentage of home ownership ever, a steady increase in the number of jobs nationwide, and nothing has been mentioned in the mainstream media.

Let the market have one bad day, and it's the fault of the "Bush Economy".

Unbiased media? No way.
