There is No Bias in the Media

Or so they would like us to believe. I wonder how many people are drinking their kool-aid?

But wait! A beacon of truth appears, since apparently the LA Times has given up all guise of impartiality in politics. What leads me to make that statement? Read the first sentence of this article. I tried to convince myself that it was tongue in cheek, but, alas, could not reach that conclusion. Perhaps you disagree, and can convince me otherwise.

Now, as I've stated before, I'm no fan of Sarah Palin. I think she is a flash in the pan, not ready for prime time. Although I certainly do not think she is the reason McCain failed to win the Presidency. She does, however, possess the star power to help revitalize a lost party. There is something to be said for being able to write a book that is a bestseller before it even appears on the shelf. And, since the left is so busy reviling her, perhaps she has the power to help keep their eye off the ball, making room for a serious candidate to take the forum for 2012.

We can only hope.

Heh. Methinks the LAT wasn't being quite literal there.

But: point taken on Palin as a whole... and I agree with ya. One of my blog-buds/daily reads and I have been going at each other on this subject hammer and tongs for over a year now. The guy has a frickin' swimming pool full of cherry-red Kool Aid and "Palin 2012" stuff in his sidebar. I don't QUITE get it.

You're probably right, Buck. I've just become so jaded toward the media that it's becoming difficult to differentiate the difference.

Usually newspaper commentary is less...snarky than that. Was it just an online column?
