18 Jan 2004 Stop Presses: Left Thinks Bush Lies, While NBC Blows Off Objectivity
Here is an unintentionally funny story claiming liberal reporters try really, really hard to be objective, while conservative reporters don’t even bother.
If you don’t feel like reading the link ’cause it sounds like the story might be idiotic, I’ll save you the effort and confirm what most of you expect: The guy who thinks this is a leftie. He’s written a book about Bush called “Fraud: The Strategy Behind the Bush Lies and Why the Media Didn’t Tell You.” (Original theme, guy. Haven’t heard of anyone writing a book about Bush lying before.)
Meanwhile, catch this report from the Media Research Center about how the hyper-objective guys at NBC News covered Al Gore’s January 15 speech on the topics of global warming, how evil and corrupt George Bush and conservative think tanks are, and the need for all of us to be more kind to one another. NBC news fawned over it, and then quoted other people fawning over it. That’s it. Not even a pretense of objectivity.
