Media Bias?

Here's a fascinating poll of Washington State registered voters, asking a variety of questions. Keeping in my that this state very much favours Democrats, the responses to Questions #7 & #8 should be particularly telling to anyone who is still in denial about the MSM being in the tank for Obama:

#7 - So far, has there been too much? Too little? Or just the right amount of media scrutiny of Sarah Palin?

46% Too Much
25% Too Little
24% Just About Right
5% Not Sure

#8 - Is the media rooting for Barack Obama? Rooting for John McCain? Or trying its best to be fair to both?

52% Barack Obama
8% John McCain
35% Being Fair To Both
5% Not Sure

Update: A newly released Rasmussen poll says that "51% of U.S. voters think reporters are trying to hurt Sarah Palin with their news coverage, and 24% say those stories make them more likely to vote for Republican presidential candidate John McCain in November."
