Busted...the "Myth" of Media Bias

Found this article over at Weasel Zippers talking about what's been obvious all along.

Gun debate triggered media bias
If you thought President Obama was outraged after the Senate killed the plan to expand background checks on guns, you should have seen some members of the press.
Even by the standards of today’s partisan media environment, the response has been noteworthy. Television hosts, editorial boards, and even some reporters have aggressively criticized and shamed the 46 Senators who opposed the plan, while some have even taken to actively soliciting the public to contact them directly.
The decision by some members of the media to come down so firmly on one side of a policy debate has only served to reinforce conservatives’ longstanding suspicions that the mainstream media has a deep-seated liberal bias.
“I guess the liberal media get annoyed when Senators listen to their constituents and think for themselves, rather than doing the media’s bidding,” Bill Kristol, the editor-in-chief of the Weekly Standard, told POLITICO.~snip~
Read the whole thing and then tell me how anyone can trust anything that these pompous assholes write, Between hoping for Boston marathon bomber to be white to searching for any whiff of "tea party" involvement when any tragedy strikes it's boldly apparent that the media will stoop to any level to advance their liberal commie agenda.
It's unbelievable that anyone can take what they say seriously.
