This is the Weblog of Mike from FreeRepublic.com, the head of the Christian Supporters of Israel list there. Just another rower down in the hold of the juggernaut which is the American Evangelical Christian support of Israel.

A Liberal Bias In The Mainstream Media?

Well, who'da thought?! The logical conclusion from the CBS "MemoGate" fiasco and Dan Blather's complicity is that perhaps coverage of Israel is just a bit biased? But then, we at Free Republic are not so naive.

The e-newsletter I get from Gary D. Halbert, Investors Insight is instructive. He writes:

"In short, they (elitist manstream media) assume we are stupid.

They even use ridiculous arguments to try and convince us that they do not have a liberal bias. The one I like the most is that the press MUST be conservative because the major media outlets are all owned by large corporations. Yeah, right. As I have written before, if the major corporations that control the media are so conservative, why can’t I let my kids watch network TV at night? In addition to the filthy language, they continually push the envelope on nudity and sexual situations and innuendo. Sorry folks, that’s not conservative!

Yet the reality is that most Americans have become so lazy that they assume the information we are force-fed by the mainstream media is accurate. They do not take the time or effort to check it out. They just assume it is true. But then a story like the CBS fiasco comes along, and it blows up in the media’s face. Now, even the man on the street knows the media is biased.

I have often recommended that you frequent one of my favorite websites – the Media research Center at http://www.mediaresearch.org/. On a daily basis, MRC monitors the major networks and documents the many instances of liberal bias. Just one visit to the MRC website will show you how pervasive liberal bias is in the mainstream press, and especially in the various network news programs."

Keep hammering on the radical leftists, people. We can still tell the TRUTH better than they can tell their lies!
