When the wingnuts speak of media bias, they're usually talking about "liberal" media bias.
But take a look at this. It's Maeve Reston's article at the P-G describing how the Senate has approved new rules about lobbying. All this in response to the Jack Abramoff and Duke Cunningham scandals.
And not once is the word "Republican" used in the piece. The closest Reston gets is to put the "R" when mentioning the Republican members of Congress.
But let's remember, friends, that the Abramoff scandal was a Republican scandal. And that the Duke Cunningham scandal was a Republican scandal.
If you didn't know the details, you could reasonably guess from Reston's piece that Abramoff was an equal opportunity briber (which he wasn't) or that the lobbying corruption is shared in equal parts by both parties (which it isn't).
In this piece it looks like the Senate has come together in a bipartisan way to clean up a bipartisan mess.
Uh-uh. Not true. It was a partisan mess all along. A Republican partisan mess.
Here's a thought experiment. Imagine it happening to Democrats. Doncha think the whole frickin news media would be pointing it out?
Of course they would.
It looks like there's a conscious attempt to AVOID mentioning the word "Republican" and the word "scandal" in the same sentence - heck, in the same news article.
