Borklog: One entry

20 October 2003

Redtoade took me to task for the Bill McCellan link below, sending a link to Poynter Online's interview with Harry Stein, Slouching Toward Bias, or about the liberal bias in the media. I think the bias from the left is bias of omission, and the bias from the right is bias of distortion - it's a lot of fun listening to the Limbaugh program with the list of common logical fallacies. The American media is pretty much just reduced to what will sell papers or what will sell commercials or what will drive pledges during public radio membership drives, and as such I haven't paid them much attention in the last several years.
