The Myth Of Media Bias? CBS News Caught Selling Obama Merchandise On CBS Online Store
August 19th, 2011
Well....we all knews that CBS stands for Communist Broadcasting Service, but I think this puts to rest any questions "some" may have had with regard to where the CBS ideology lies...~BLS
There‘s some curious merchandise for sale in CBS News’ online store.*
Alongside a travel mug, tote bag and T-shirt that all bear the CBS News logo, the store also includes the following:
- “Dreams From My Father,” by Barack Obama
- “Dreams From My Father,” by Barack Obama (hardcover)
- “Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama‘s Plan to Renew America’s Promise”
- “The American Journey of Barack Obama,” by Life Magazine
- “Obama: The Historic Campaign in Photographs”
- “The Official Inauguration Celebration DVD”
In fact, out of the 13 items for sale, seven are Obama-related, in addition to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s memoir, “True Compass.” The only CBS-related item is a DVD copy of “60 Minutes Presents — Obama: All Access – The Road to the White House.”
There is so much merchandise that a side bar on the site even has a separate “Barack Obama” tab for quick browsing:
Here’s a closer look at all of the Obama merchandise:
All of this raises a simple question: Why is CBS selling it?
A note at the bottom of the site says the merchandise has “national importance:”
CBS News t-shirts and CBS News hoodies will show you’re a true newshound. And don’t forget all the latest DVDs and books with historical significance. Choose from 60 Minutes Barack Obama DVDs, Barack Obama books and other timely tales with national importance.
Again, in addition to the five Obama books, the only other “timely tale” is Kennedy’s memoir.
