Excuse Me, But Your Bias Is Showing

We are seeing the undeniable liberal bias of the mainstream news media in the coverage of the Republican National Convention. The alphabet soup of news organizations (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN) are taking every opportunity to talk about and show convention protestors in the Big Apple. We've seen signs, banners, coffins and even bare bottoms. Apparently there's no protest too small or insignificant that it can't get some airplay.

Remember that during the Democratic Convention in Boston, the protestors were kept far away from the Fleet Center. They were given almost no coverage. Why? Because it was the Democratic Convention, and everything had to be kept on target. In New York, however, it's the Republicans. So, anything that reflects badly on the President or that makes the Republicans look bad is fair game.
