    ABCNews.com columnist Michael Malone today takes a look at the "sheer bias in the print and television coverage of this election campaign," which he finds "not just bewildering, but appalling."

    Malone writes that "Republicans are justifiably foaming at the mouth over the sheer one-sidedness of the press coverage of the two candidates and their running mates. But in the last few days, even Democrats, who have been gloating over the pass -- no, make that shameless support -- they've gotten from the press, are starting to get uncomfortable as they realize that no one wins in the long run when we don't have a free and fair press."

    Paperboy's reporting on liberal bias in the media.

    In other news, a caveman formed the wheel today. When asked about his invention and how it would help men all over the world, the caveman replied "Ugh, nugh, ugh, nugh!!!"

    The "Liberal" media is a term the Conservative media has been complaining about for ages.

    Was the liberal media in charge of print, in the runup to the Iraq war?

    Don't shoot the messenger. This is what ABC news said, not me.

    There are a number of other news stories out today and yet you choose this one to post about. Why is that?

    All I know is abc has less credibility with me since they got a story wrong and they were asked who gave them their information and abc wouldn't give up the sources or even retract their story until after the white house admitted it was bs.

    Its supposed to work the other way around.

    So either show me abc is owned by a liberal like fox is owned by a rupert murdoc, or give some proof.

    I just know abc isn't a liberal station. Maybe independent, maybe conservative, but certainly not liberal. Unless liberal means factual?

    This is nothing new. The liberal bias in the media is well-documented. Fortunately for the Left, Obama and the Democratically-controlled Congress will most likely pass the Fairness Doctrine to eliminate anyone on the Right to exercise their 1st Amendment rights.

    Yes, I'm sure those great icons of conservatism, George Stephanopoulos and Charlie Gibson, would agree. :cuckoo:

    Was the liberal bias evident in the spring of 2003?
