Explaining U.S. media

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Let's not forget the certified and proven airplane flown by a certified and proven crew that blew up in the air over Rockaway NY. The reason the government gives? Because the pilot used the rudder. Right, and this happened a couple of months before Richard Reid tried to blow up a plane in mid-air.

For those not in the US that don't know, there is a huge proven liberal dominance in our news media (like 85%+ voted liberal in our last election). The unspoken law in liberal circles is this: blacks, hispanics, native americans, gays and now arabs/muslims are above reproach. I don't say this to be mean or inflammatory, it is just a fact. If anyone in one of those groups does something wrong, it is not given much (if any) coverage, and then the press tries to assign responsibility to some external cause. If a white, asian, jew or christian does something wrong, there are headlines and immediate condemnation. California, where the murders took place, leads the nation in such bias.

The good news is that since so many are sick of this, America has a new tv news outlet that is quickly beating the networks and Ted Turner's anti-Israel machine. They're winning against all the others by just giving the news straight. Finally!
