Media Bias: a Tale of two Congressmen

Filed under: Media Bias — Tags: — Jesusland @ 13:03

Democratic congressman Bob Etheridge assaults college kid.

If you’re wondering why the dinosaur Media is going extinct, this might help explain why:

Senator George Allen (R) says “macaca” on camera? 131 articles, 13 on the front page.

Congressman Bob Etheridge (D) commits battery on camera? Three paragraphs on page C3.

Compare. Contrast.

Oh, I get it.  Sen. Allen was called out for his “racism.”  Uh huh.  More at Ace of Spades.

Their charade is coming apart at the seams and nobody trusts them anymore:

A new Rasmussen survey finds a solid majority of voters are sick and tired of agenda journalism:

Sixty-six percent (66%) of U.S. voters describe themselves as at least somewhat angry at the media, including 33% who are Very Angry.

And most of them believe that Big Media actively sought to get Obama elected:

But voters have consistently said in surveys that they believe the national media has a liberal bias and that most reporters try to help the candidates they want to win. Just before Election Day 2008, 51% said most reporters were trying to help Barack Obama win the presidency. Just seven percent (7%) thought they were trying to help John McCain, while 31% viewed their coverage as unbiased.

A large plurality believes that the mainstream media are carrying water for the Obama adminstration:

Now 48% of voters think most reporters when they write or talk about President Obama are trying to help the president pass his agenda. Only 18% think most reporters are trying to block the president from passing his agenda. Twenty-seven percent (27%) say they are simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner.
