Brought to You By GOP Talking Points

I don't ever want to hear how Faux News is "fair and balanced" and independent. As Media Matters points out about a recent edition of Fox News' Happening Now:

In purporting to "take a look back" at how the economic recovery plan "grew, and grew, and grew," Fox News' Jon Scott referenced seven dates, as on-screen graphics cited various news sources from those time periods -- all of which came directly from a Senate Republican Communications Center press release. A Fox News on-screen graphic even reproduced a typo contained in the Republican press release.
I'll nver buy into the conservative spiel that the mainstram media has a liberal slant, especially the way its hitting Obama (well maybe, it is more intelligent) -- if there were such a slant, it's unintentional. Unlike Faux News which makes no effort at all to disguise its bias.

Yah--and Stephanopoulos' daily chit-chat with Emanuel is just "old pals talking."

Not the same, daddio. I'd compare Pat Buchanon to Stephanopoulus perhaps, but not an entire network geared to misinformation.

You mean MSNBC or NBC in general? Nah. Can't be. Media Matters? Now there's an un-biased group.

Other Side said...

Media Matters has never claimed to be. Their mission is to expose conservative misinformation. They're very honest and upfront about it.

Big difference, Bill.
