the website itself seems rather biased too.
It is a conservative website. Did you disagree with some of their listings re top 10 distortions?
well it seems like a good compilation of the liberal spin during the
election. But by omitting the Republican spin on some of the topics
I am not sure that it represents a good top 10 media distortion list.
I would rate the draft fear stories higher due to the immediate
clarification by the Bush team that there is no such plan
and it was pretty much a democratic setup to begin with.
The Swift Boat story was working more against Kerry then being
a critical story against Republicans.
Edwards liberal image seemed not distorted. At least I saw him as
the commie lawyer that he is. Talking about the class divide in the
The economy is a half glass full half empty story and I am not
sure that either side was over represented in the media.
Number 3 and 1 the Bush dodge accusations were old news in a new
political spin with a blatant "hey Dan use this forgery by the Kerry
campaign advisor twist that definitly was one of the top distortions.
The Iraq goes nuclear story by Cheney should be included imo.
Well there was so much mudslinging by both sides in the election
cycle it would have been a better and more balanced story if
they would have picked on both sides. Their are no innocents in
Well, pick one from the other side you think ranks above some of those 10.
Personally, I can't think of anything.
Me either. Any reporting that contains even the pretense of objectivity is, by comparison, so far right of the mainstream media as to appear biased toward Republicans. Thank God for Fox and the blogosphere.
This is nothing but right-wing propaganda. There is no liberal bias in the media, in fact there is a conservative bias. The right-wing propaganda machine is very, very powerful. They bought and paid for the swift boat smear campaign which the media played to the hilt, constantly and consistently got the media to misrepresent Kerry's record on everything from military spending, to taxes, to health care, to gay marriage. Bush was given a free pass by the media. CBS tried to scoop other networks and didn't do their homework, it was not part of a political agenda - that's right wing fiction. Even if reporters were for Kerry, editors and publishers were solidly for Bush and it is they, not the reporters, who decide what gets published where and when.
LOL - damn good shot Evil! ! !
ACLU is the board apologist for everything liberal.
Sure - there's no liberal bias in the media - and there's no volcano in the Hawiian islands either - it's just an earth pimple.
