that's not wholly true.

even I recognize the occasional bias of their stories.

at the very least...look at the images they choose:

rummy, cheney and bush always at their worst, kerry at his best.

When people talk about the liberal media, what they're actually referring to are the individual reporters, most of whom, like teachers, are fairly liberal on a whole. Where the liberal media mythology fails is when you go above them to the people and corporations that sign their paychecks and control what stories and ads make it to press/air. The whole fox news beef growth hormone "scandal" is a prime example of this. Two liberal reporters doing their job and digging up the dirt on some nasty business practices. When they went to file it however they were fired and the story was suppressed by fox news executives.

Conclusion: Liberal Media = bullshit! :smile:

Watch 'John Kerry: Born to Run' and then 'The Mission of George W. Bush', and then tell me CNN doesn't have a liberal bias.

Are you suggesting that to be unbiased, CNN should make only pro-Kerry and pro-Bush reports? OR that it should manufacture a balance?

I'm saying pro-Kerry and anti-Bush reports equal a bias. They don't need to manufacture a balance, they need to give equal time and equal treatment and be ojective.
The Kerry show featured mostly interviews of Kerry and Kerry supporters, the Bush program included mostly commentary from people that didn't like Bush and a few snippets from Laura and Colin Powell. The fact that CNN is telling only one side from their own perspective means they are biased.

Neither will ever suggest stopping it because it would be wrong. There aren't enough Jewish voters in this country to do shit. Except that they're the master race and control EVERYTHING.

zappaisgod is the kind of guy who celebrates with a good laugh when a scud missile is launched into a Palestinian neighborhood by the Zionists killing a dozen Palestinian children.

Listen, I hate to be the one to tell you this but the guys that killed 16 innocent people in Israel yesterday were anti-Zionists. Same with the fanatics who have killed 1,000 Israeli civilians in the last 4 years.

Deliberately killing innocent people=evil

Yes, and both sides have done copious amounts of that.
