I just stumbled across this little tidbit (I'll post in full for the benefit of the lazy ): By Mary Kate Cary, Thomas Jefferson Street blog [From US News & World Report] (Of significance is the note on her page that she is a "former White House speechwriter for President George H.W. Bush") One comment and several criticisms: Comment: She has a point, to a certain extent. I do not want to see news networks become so focused on attacking their media/political opponents that they become partisan propaganda machines. MSNBC and Fox are both in serious danger of going down that road. Criticisms: To start with, Comparing Obama to Mcain is no longer as relevant as it was during the election. A better measure of bias would be to compare reactions to Obama with reactions to Congressional (GOP) minority leaders who are spearheading conservative political moves. McCain is really not in that category as much as other people like John Boehner. Secondly, my criticisms of Fox news fall most heavily on their rabble-rousing prime time shows involving Bill O' Reilly, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. The above article does not factor these guys in. She's really not giving the whole picture.
