I can't tell you how many times I've listened to a politician and heard nothing but blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
Oregon Republican candidate for Senate Mark Callahan was thrown out of a meeting with reporters from local alternative newspaper Willamette Week after chastising a reporter for writing “blah blah blah” in his notepad as another candidate explained her policy positions.
A group of GOP Senate hopefuls each seeking the Oregon paper’s endorsement sat down with a group of Willamette Week reporters. One candidate, Joe Rae Perkins, called into the meeting to explain her political platform. But not all the journalists were interested — and Callahan happened to notice.
“You want to talk about disrespect, I see what you’re writing down there,” he angrily accused reporter Nigel Jaquiss. “You just wrote down ‘blah blah blah blah blah’ for everything that Joe Rae said. Joe Rae is a respectable woman. Why are you not respecting her by writing ‘blah blah blah blah blah’ on your notepad?”
The moderator suggested that Callahan “move on” and answer the next question “respectfully.”
“You have to give respect in order to get respect,” he shot back. “Right now on that side of the table, you’re not giving very much respect to the five of us and our time here.”
Clearly peeved, the moderator nevertheless plowed on. “Mark, here’s my question,” he said. “Climate change: Do you believe it’s a myth or a reality?”
“It’s a myth,” he replied.
“Where are you on the Easter Bunny?” Jaquiss sneered — clearly unembarrassed by Callahan’s earlier accusation.

Imagine the outcry if this had happened on Fox News to someone like Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi.
But this... likely heard by a select few.
No, there's no bias amongst today's journalists.
