Bias On War

Irresponsible partisan bias is glaringly exposed now, but the mainstream media is pretending it doesn’t exist. That, of course, is because they are guilty of the same bias, particularly when it comes to war. Dan Gainor at NewsBusters delivers a simple expose that should be blatantly obvious to all.  Unfortunately, it isn’t and the media will just continue on their hypocritical path.

From Dan Gainor at NewsBusters

Where have all the war protesters gone…They’re mostly backing Obama’s attack on Libya or at least keeping quiet so they don’t aid those evil conservatives intent on criticizing the president…

It wasn’t so long ago that Code Pinkers were the darlings of journalism. You could find them across the media landscape. The Washington Post had lovingly huge features on them titled “Protesting for Peace With a Vivid Hue and Cry; Code Pink’s Tactics: Often Theatrical, Always Colorful.” “Bring the troops home,” that 2007 story ended. Four years later, we know no one on the left really wanted to send the troops home. They just wanted to send Bush home.

Where did that crowd go? There are no major anti-war rallies on the mall. The crazy lefties that flock to an ANSWER event are nowhere to be seen. There aren’t enough liberals singing “give peace a chance” to fill up your average coffee house.

The 2004 Abu Ghraib scandal gave journalists the chance to talk about the evils of war and blame them on George W. Bush. The Post did more than 1,700 Abu Ghraib stories and about 800 of those mention Bush…Rolling Stone wrote more than 8,000 words how “U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan murdered innocent civilians and mutilated their corpses.” One word wasn’t in that report: Obama. The commander-in-chief.
