Liberal Media; Biden asked to Explain How Obama is Not Marxist

Update 8/26 7:03 P.M.:
From CBS Horse Race: The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the Obama campaign has told station WFTV-Channel 9 not to expect any more interviews until after the election.

According to a blog on the paper's Web site, this stems from a satellite interview the Orlando station's Barbara West conducted with Joe Biden on Thursday.

West asked the Democratic vice presidential nominee to defend whether the ticket's policies were "Marxist" and whether Biden's comments about Obama being "tested" early in his presidency were saying "America's days as the world's leading power are over."

So maybe this interview is not representative of every media outlet. Anyway, it's ridiculous. (Massive H/T to Wonkette for being a great repository of great links)

Highlight of the interview:

Anchor: You may recognize this famous quote "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" that's from Karl Marx. How is Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?

Joe Biden: Are you joking? Is this a joke?

Anchor: No.

Joe Biden: Is that a real question?
