This guy is so full of it - THE primary pollagandists in major news is Fox News Channel which has been hammering on the fact that all the polls have Dubya ahead right now. They are working overtime hammering on the CBS story while not even reporting a lot of what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This mythology perpetuated by right-wing conservatives about the "liberal media" has got to stop. Maybe the majority of reporters are liberal, but the people who publish the papers and those who make the decisions about what goes into them are largely CONSERVATIVE. Here's are some links that show that the media is actually biased towards the right: http://www.fair.org/press-releases/power-sources-release.html
While the poster gave a bonafide site, from what I can see, your sites are anecdotal evidence to deny. Unfortunately, the quantative analysis debunks these.
Yeah. What she said.
Your post presents irrefutable evidence that you are resigned to the fact that GW will be re-elected in November. When a leftie like you starts to claim that the media is slanted to the RIGHT (BWAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA). The fact is that even the leftist media is obliged to report a few facts every now and then or risk exposing themselves for the liberal whores that they truly are. You should not impugn your media allies by calling them conservative simply because they can no longer distort the truth to suit your needs.
And Fox news is not "hammering on the fact that all the polls have Dubya ahead right now." Although it must surely seem that way to you since you have been immersed in pro-kerry polls by the major networks,PBS CNN since June. So I can imagine the fact that even the networks can no longer perpetuate the liberal myth must be a shock to you.
And you just couldn't resist getting in your favorite little whine "They are working overtime hammering on the CBS story". The CBS story NEEDS to be hammered. The fact that CBS in general and Rather in particular have been exposed for the cynical, lying, belly-crawling vermin that they are is NEWS. Perhaps Fox is out for blood and attempting to destroy CBS - I don't know. If they are - good. I hope that it serves as an object lesson to other media outlets. Now if someone would only catch the NYT with their pants down. . .
"This mythology perpetuated by right-wing conservatives about the "liberal media" has got to stop."
Good God, ACLU you're a riot. And here I was beginning to think you had no sense of humor. Obviously I was wrong and I humbly apologize.
