A Clear Cut Case Of Media Bias

This from MSNBC:

Republicans abandoning Bush-NBC/WSJ poll: President’s, Congress’ ratings drop to lowest levels ever

Now, I don't doubt for a minute that this poll is accurate (well, as accurate as an NBC poll can get, considering that they oversample democrats), and that the story is true. But my point is that it's quite obvious how MSNBC, among other liberal MSM outlets, just LOVES to report this sort of bad news about the President and his polling numbers.

When was the last time they, or the rest of the liberal media, wrote a story with a title such as: "Democrats abandoning (insert name of Democrat leader here)"?

I did a google search and found this:

Results 1 - 10 of about 2,260 for "republicans abandoning"

Results 1 - 10 of about 1,390 for "republicans abandoning bush".

But for "Democrats abandoning"?

Results 1 - 10 of about 1,400 for "democrats abandoning". (which brings up alot of bloggers right at the top, and not many mainstream news sources)

But when it comes to doing a search of "Democrats abandoning (name of democrat leaders)", either pelosi, reid, clinton (both hillary and bill), etc? ZERO results.

Now, dont tell me that the media could not find any Democrats who are disappointed with their own leadership in one way or the other. I see them on the internet all the time.
