In what appears to be a blatant case of media bias, NBC’s online store has become a major distributor of pro-Obama T-shirts, DVDS and refrigerator magnets.

If you're a fan of all things Obama, NBC Universal's online store has no fewer than 29 options for your buying pleasure -- from a shirt with the president's picture proclaiming "YES WE DID"...to both of his books...to a special inauguration DVD...to a refrigerator magnet of the first couple, Fox News reports.

There’s even a Barack Obama Action Figure -- yours for $15, plus tax. All of this is available online or at NBC Universal's retail store in New York.

Some analysts tell Fox it’s merely good business, that NBC is simply offering what people want to buy. They point out that the adult version of the “YES WE DID” shirt ($25) was so popular, it sold out on the Web site.

But others note that there is no merchandise available that shows support for the other side of the political aisle. And they question whether the political bent of the items on sale are healthy for a corporation that operates an impartial news outlet.

Some of NBC’s item descriptions would seem to support that notion: "Bring reform to your refrigerator. Or at least keep company with the President while you're at work, with the Barack Obama Magnet," one item description reads.
