The LA Times wants you to know that Mitt Romney is too rich and you should vote for the other guy.
That was the underlying theme of the progressive newspaper's hit piece, "Ann Romney and dressage: A pricey private world", in which it devoted 1,300 words to Ann Romney's expensive hobby.
The Times dug up an old lawsuit that Romney is no longer a party to, which involved a dispute regarding horse she had owned. In 2010 she was deposed in a "stuffy Simi Valley office building" and discussed how she kept her horse at a Moorpark Ranch, and how riding it helps her cope with MS.
The only reason the Times allocated resources to write this lengthy story and send a photographer to Moorpark to snap photos of the ranch, is to paint the Mitt Romney as a rich, out-of-touch, elite snob who cares little for working people. He's nothing like you, so you should vote for Obama.
As John Nolte points out, the Times devoted 1,300 more words to Ann Romney's horse than it has to the bribery accusation Jeremiah Wright made against President Obama's campaign, and it still refuses to publish a video tape it has of the president praising a man with close ties to terrorism.
Liberal media bias doesn't have to be blatant lies about Republicans. It can be subtle jabs made in concert with overt Democratic attacks on perceived Republican weak points while simultaneously ignoring anything that's bad for their party.
