    NBC, CBS, and ABC Highlight Sanford's GOP Label; Downplayed Label For Disgraced Dem
    snip,
    I suppose in the MSM's eyes, cheating on your wife isn't as bad if you pay a hooker for it and you are a democrat.
    Quite telling.

    The way I see it, the media likes to make a much larger deal out these things than they need to. Especially when it involves conservatives. Imagine a hypothetical situation. Barney Frank is having a relationship with a another man who is running a prostitution ring out of Barneys Washington residence, would the media make a huge story out of it? Oh wait that already happened, oops.

    I think whats worse is delibritely mis-labeling people's party to save your own skin. Fox has gotten really good at that over the years....

    Just in case you folks didn't know it, Fox is part of the MSM.

    Right, and there is an entire 16 page thread about this topic...the fair/unfair/bias/non-bias spin of the MSM.

    What happens and how it is reported tend to be two different things when it comes to our supposed journalists these days.

    In school, I took a coupole classes in Journalism. One of the ethics classes pointed out that many times an article about a crime would indentify the alleged criminal as "Elmer jones, black, ..." and then go on to realte the facts of the story.

    To the reporters and editors who published this kind of stuff, there was no problem here. That Elmer Jones was a black man seemed like an integral part of the story when in truth it was only an integral part of their own prejudice.

    Does anyone else see a parallel?
