PGHA: Media Bias

Well, CBS finally finished their investigation of the Rathergate Memos. Somehow, they came to the conclusion that there was no intentional media bias on the part of CBS in airing the forged documents. It turns out they were only guilty of trying to be the first ones to report a story (that had been reported 4 or 5 times already) and used material that they had not spent enough time checking out.

The conclusion that the rest of the world (meaning all of us bloggers) is that; if Memogate doesn’t indicate media bias, what would?

How about if Rather had ended each segment of 60 minutes with “Vote for Kerry” each night? Or would that just be interpreted as just an attempt to get more people involved in the democratic process?

Maybe if the papers ran a headline saying “BUSH IS EVIL” it would be showing media bias? Probably not. They would be able to get out of an investigation by saying that the headline was a misinterpretation of a story on poisonous plant life. And even if, after carefully reading the articles, the critics say that it is a news article about the President, the media leaders will probably fall back and fire some assistant editor, claiming it was all some underlings fault.

The only way that I can see anybody in the Legacy Media admitting to the liberal bias is if Kerry had won the Presidency, and the Democrats had swept all of the races in both the House and Senate, they would be breaking their arms patting themselves on the back. And you know that they wouldn’t waste a second reminding the new President that they put him in the office and that he owed them.

So as far as I can tell, the only time the Legacy Media would admit to a bias, would be too late for the rest of us to do anything about it.

Well, I’ve rambled enough for the day.

(That is all)

The Rathergate panel was set up to write a coverup. Dick has been fighting the Bushes for years. The report is a coverup; as it was supposed to be.
