Highly Selective Journalism - A Case and Point

December 5th, 2006

Is there a substantial media bias? The answer is a ridiculously obvious YES and if you dont see it then youre most likely considered very highly educated or youre known to attend cultural awareness rallies in San Francisco.

The examples are many but the latest nauseating example in my mind is the un-reporting of the statements made by the Kurdish PM on the similarities between CNN and Al Jazeera.

Quote from Kurdish PM, CNN International and Al Jazeera are equally bad in their coverage of

Whatever your politics, its a stretch to conclude that this was not news worthy. What a bombshell to CNN and from a seemingly objective source.

To some the question is why would a media outlet risk potential vilification to slant the news? In my view this is organizational dynamics 101, companies and organizations are run from the top down where the ideas, goals, and objectives of the leadership are communicated and acted upon by the individual contributors. Is there any question that media executives on-balance are more liberal than conservative? Just do a little digging and youll see that its vastly unbalanced. It is simply their vehicle for a political movement under the guise of journalism.

    man, you guys don't know what the hell you are talking about. You think the media is liberal and we think it is too conservative; and we are right (no pun intended).

    bd, I'm surprised you had the sack to continue posting here.

    Based on your past posts I would guess you are the one known to attend cultural awareness rallies in San Francisco. It's intellectually dishonest to try and argue the reverse here. The liberal establishment is largely silent on the issue because they know it to be true. And we haven't even begun to talk about disproportionate liberal influence in our school systems.

    It's everywhere and it's just silly to deny it. Embrace it, don't try and argue it's not there. If I was a liberal I'd be glad about the advantage. I'd probably also drive a Prius, wear hemp underwear, and sport an inferiority complex.

    I am SO laughing right now. If I were a liberal, I would probably have long, ungroomed facial hair, have several "peace" and "Bush Lied and People Died" stickers all over my car, listening to the Beatles and Bob Dylan on my way up to a Cindy Sheehan protest rally.

    Common Sense Insurgent? What a lame name!! You right wingers are so gung ho for war and killing people. when are you ever gonna realize that most of america doesn't thignk this way.

  5. Common Sense Insurgent Says:

    bd, I know it's difficult and frustrating for you to articulate an intelligent response to any of the posts in this blog, but lashing out and attempting to demean someone because of their chosen blog name only highlights your impotence as a contributor and reveals your extensive lack of maturity. It's also very un-liberal for you to have such a closed mind and abusive tone.

    In response to your "misplaced" statement about "... right wingers are so gung ho for war ..." it's delusional to think that conservatives as a whole are somehow eager for war. You're really painting with a broad brush (another major "Liberal" infraction). I'd like to point out that some of the most famous left wingers, Pot, Stalin, Lenin, and Tse-Tung were the ones truly gung ho for war whether it was with a foreign power or against their own people. Their atrocities by far eclipse any capitalistic empire in history with more than 100 million people murdered under their regimes.

    Oh, and I think we'd all agree that "bd" is a much better name.

    I recently heard on NPR that of all the fines/admonishments (for various reasons, including mishandling/misreporting the truth) handed out by the FCC in the last year, less, than 20% were to "liberal" televison and radio. About 40% each were for "conservative" and "moderate" conglomerates.
    So it would seem as though there is actually a right wing bias.
    I apologize for not having the immediate source to this information. I do believe that NPR is one of the best sources in the United States for news, however.

    Interesting Vauxhall, I'll try to find the source. On the question of an unbiased news source you'll find many people including myself who see NPR as a left leaning news outlet.

    The First Republican Debate will be held on MSNBC, and hosted by Chris Mattews,,,,,,,,(Yea, He's not bias)....He trys to destroy the bush administration on a daily basis, and gives people like Joe Wilson, a free pass, no tough questions. He is a liberal phony posing as a journalist and cheerleading for the Liberals in the "Scooter" Libby trial. BOYCOTT MSNBC AND DEMAND THE REPUBLICANS CANCEL THE DEBATE!
    Even if they don't cancel,(which they won't, because they are not gutless turds like the democrats) We need to bring attention to the bias of people like Mattews, Gregory, Lourer and the rest of the phonies....!
    This is a great opportunity to show the bias of NBC/MSNBC.
