Need more proof that the media is overwhelmingly biased to the Left?
Here's a quote from Joe Scarborough on Newsbusters:
JOE SCARBOROUGH: There was a story out of Seattle, and the reason I love it is that it's transparency in the news. You have an editor who was actually outing his own people. The Seattle Times newsroom broke into applause when Karl Rove resigned. And of course that's bad. What I like about it is that the editor actually wrote about it and went in and told the people in the newsroom that was unacceptable.
And I've got to say, my first night here at MSNBC was the President's State of the Union address in 2003, and I was shocked because there were actually people in the newsroom that were booing the president actually from the beginning to the end. And I actually talked to [NBC/MSNBC executive] Phil Griffin about it, and he said "how was it last night?" Because he was the one that called me out of the Ace Hardware store, got my vest on. He said "how was it last night?" I said "well, it's OK, I understand it's a little bit different up here than it is down in northwest Florida, but you had people in the newsroom actively booing the President of the United States. Phil turned red very quickly. That didn't happen again.
Everyone is biased; anyone who doesn't have a philosophy or political opinion is woefully ignorant or has already taken liberal "tolerance" to it's logical extreme--however, there are few people who fit either of those categories, at least to the degree that they'd have no political bias.
The problem comes in when journalists allow that bias to so color and shape what they report, what they DON'T report, and how they report, then it crosses the line.
And when they try to pretend they're objective and unbiased, when even the average American can see that they are, then the story of the emperor's new clothes comes to mind.
