They Used To Lie About Liberal Media Bias

Now, they brag;

[...] Cuomo and Washington Post reporter seemed to be proud of the media's ability to turn Americans against the war in Iraq. Kurtz, who has written a book on the subject, asserted, "I believe that these newscasts in 2005 and 2006 played the biggest single role in helping to turn public opinion against the war."

Cuomo agreed and complimented the journalist's analysis. He enthused, "It's easy to say, 'Oh, well. The war was unpopular. People were looking for the unpopularity of it. At some point, the networks gave that to them.' But you have a more penetrating look at it. You take a look at it in terms of the role of the nightly newscasts in shaping the ideas about the news..." According to Kurtz, the top three network anchors kept "framing the story in such a way" that the bad news finally had an impact.

"They Used To Lie About Liberal Media Bias"

If this is a trend then the Star and G&Mail and their corporate "pollsters" shouls have front page editorials tomorrow taking a bow how they saved Dolton McLiar's malfeasant ass from voter retribution.

Possibly off topic but relates to bias in the media. The headline says that the US will experience a 2.8 degree warmer winter this year than the average for the last 30 years. As an after thought they also say the winter will be 1.3 degrees colder than last year. Which is more important? The average for 30 years or the temperature for the comming winter?

From the comments at the link:

Gee do you think the MSM is giving honest coverage of troops in the field or the relative successes in Anbar province?

Thus we have the Marine equating watching the MSM with inducing 'brain damage'. The MSM sounds like toxic ideological soup to me.

"My daughter's Marine buddy (who is married to my daughter's best friend) just returned from his third Iraq tour last month (unlike his second tour, without extensive corrective surgery and rehab ... thank You, G-d!). I will not use the exact words (Marine speak ... eh hemmm ...) he uses when addressing the news coverage here at home about the war ... except that after one of his critiques and detailed corrections he follows it with, "Turn that s**t off ... You want to get brain damage?""

Lamestream media productions are successful at marketing their agenda because they can still bombard everyone from all angles, so it's not surprising they're arrogant.

Hopefully their arrogance will precipitate a complete collapse of the format when the public gets offended, the slow decline of lamestream media is tedious.

Bob, there is no left wing bias you rightwing warmongering weather nazi!

Gotta go, finger-painting class starts in a few minutes and I can’t be late.

You lucky dog,you must have a relative in admissions. I tried for that class,but could only get into basket-weaving and the seminar on great candian socialists,both which should be useful on the job market.

Back on topic,the associated press is running a story about a myanmar dissident that died during questioning,no mention of how or was it torture. I guess the question he failed to answer was" Are you still breathing?".

They brag but they still lie. It's likely that somebody from the MSM will claim in the next two months that the media aren't biased, or that any bias that exists is in favor of the left.

"What liberal bias you bible thumping fascists?!"

Guess it's hard to see past butt hole realities when you are permanently attached to the back end of the public system dog ...pumping like your subsidy-protected life relied on it...or if you're attached to the nether end of another man or a crack pipe or scag needle...either way your current search for truth leaves you dick-deep in excrement and far from reality.

Pooch/hooch pumping leftards don't realize they are being played like shnooks by corporate media masquerading as "progressiveist" media...a priceless irony.

"...or that any bias that exists is in favor of the left."
Is this irony, lack of reading comprehension or just can't connect two lucid thoughts?

The forkin point is that the retards ADMIT that they distort the reporting to push THEIR left wing views.

How is there any doubt that this is completely in line with what people like Kate and myself have been demonstrating for years!

I just got back from finger painting class. I got a crayon stuck up one of my nostrils but I won’t bore you with the details. I see you Bible thumping fascists have had an orgy of debauchery and hanging homosexuals this afternoon. Maybe you should take some lessons from the tolerant Muslims in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia.

Posted by: Abu CNN at October 11, 2007 9:13 PM

Eh, now it's all out in the open, and leftists still look really ugly.
It's a good day...

"Maybe you should take some lessons from the tolerant Muslims in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia."
