I don't watch main stream media news any more. I can't stand it. It's not just that the media is clearly biased. In fact, we've known this for a long long time. But at least before, the media tried to pretend not to be biased. Now they just don't care. They're biased and proud of it.
How do I know? Well, you could use a test like the Supreme Court's infamous pornography test... I'll know it when I see it. But that doesn't seem accurate enough for an engineer. Instead I use the "How would the media react if <insert someone from the other party here> had said this?" For instance, Bush says X and the media goes ballistic. How would the media react if Kerry said X?
Case in point. The New York Times has a very sweet article on John Kerry's visit to Head Start program for 4 and 5 year olds:
Now ask yourselves this. What if George Bush had made a similar comment about Democrats? Just One Minute has an interesting take on just that. I have just one question for John Kerry. Of all the things that you could have made disappear... zoop... Disease, Famine, War, Crime, Terrorism, Hate, Suffering... the worst thing in the world you could think of was Republicans? THAT is what is wrong with the Democratic party today.
