Where is this local "liberal media bias" that the minority local NeoCon lunatics (respectfully) are always kvetching about? Let's review, shall we ...
Local "news radio" station WAEB-AM runs right wing-friendly shows all day.
WFMZ-TV carries conservative religious programming and provides Neo-Conservative-only commentary by that really spooky and sarcastic know-it-all (and station owner) Dick Dean.
Then there's our stranglehold local monopoly "newspaper," The In-Mourning Call. It links to Neo-Conservative-only or apolitical blogs in its "Valley Blogosphere" lapdog club and the majority of its regular commenters at The Morning Call's online "Forum" sections are Obama-Hating and Pawlowski-Bashing misogynist-anti-semite-homophobic-latino-hating-bigots who are allowed to spew freely because hate sells-- it "attracts advertisers," according to Bill White.
The Allentown Commentator "blog" (really a "chat room" ick) is a far right-wing extremist gathering storm where we've read rile-'em-up racist comments aimed at our President and Allentown's Latino population.
One would think there'd be some variety and divergence of thought in a local blogosphere. Not around here. Take a look at the Lehigh Valley blogs currently ranked by BlogNet News as being among the Top 20 Most Influential Political Blogs in Pennsylvania.
Only the #1 Blog in The Lehigh Valley for 22 of the last 27 weeks (this blog, Lehigh Valley Somebody, #5 statewide) is openly and proudly liberal.
All the other Lehigh Valley also-ran blogs at BNN are either NeoConservative (#6, #7, #16, #20) or politically neutral ("mellow"), #17.
Thankfully, we liberals do have a GREAT community public radio station in WDIY-FM and an almost as good PBS TV station but that's about it.
In 2008, President Barack Obama won 57% of the vote in Lehigh County.
In 2005, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski won with a 59% popular vote mandate over Republican Bill Heydt (38%) and nosey South Whitehall Township buttinsky neighbor Mike Molovinsky (3%).
Allentown is a mostly deep dark blue city that has not voted for a Republican President since 1988 (and we regret that one).
Our local NeoCon Biased Media & Blogosphere is not serving the majority of our population who are moderate and liberal Democrats.
Thankfully, this blog is.
For a "liberal media bias" you won't find anywhere else in the Lehigh Valley, thanks for reading (#1) LVS regularly.
