The Truth About Media Bias

Blue Girl finds that liberal media bias is not what we keep hearing it is.

Oh, it exists, all right. It is very, very real. But it is the exact opposite of what the whining republicans and their enablers claim. The bias actually works in favor of Republicans.

That is the finding of two Indiana University professors who analyzed network coverage of the 1992-2004 presidential campaigns.

Blue Girl presents a very truthful summation. It disgusts me to see CNN's John King and John Roberts, for example, bend over backward to accomodate conservative Republicans and even parrot their talking points on occasion, and then have Fox "News" say that CNN is "LIBERAL." Lou Dobbs, for another, is no liberal, nor is Larry King. The truth of the matter is this: The ultra-right GOP and CPAC crowd of today have become so doctrinaire and closed-minded that they have adopted the posture of "if you're not 100% with us, you're 100% against us." By definition, then, that makes nearly all media sources other than Rupert Murdoch's "liberal." But it is a distortion of reality and a massive lie!
