More numbers? You think so? That site has hundreds of similar examples. I simply listed the most contemporary examples.
Here's another example of media bias in the opposite direction. Again drawing broad conclusions from it, in isolation, will probably give a skewed analysis.
Actually viewing the material and noting what the appearances are for would probably give a good analysis.
"During daytime programming (9 a.m.-5 p.m. ET) on CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC last week from May 4 to May 8, nine Republican members of Congress made guest appearances in segments during which the Supreme Court was either discussed or mentioned. By contrast, only two Democratic members of Congress -- and no members of the Obama administration -- appeared as guests in such segments over that time period."
This is because Democratic criticism comes from Republicans and Republican criticism comes from the media.
Take a look at this scandal involving Sanford. How many Democrats did the media need to call and bring on to discuss the implications. They don't need any because the media are willing to do it on behalf of the media.
The Republicans need to show up to call the Democrats socialists.
The media will call the Republicans extremists, link them with murders, all manner of claims and no Democratic official need come on because the claims will come right out of the mouths of the Democratic media themselves.
I thought I'd add in this to highlight that Republicans are involved in gay activities at a high rate, unlike their Democrat counterparts. There are also significantly more Republicans involved.- http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archi...4/1976721.aspx
These are facts, not media bias.
Two points, one that list is no where near comprehensive and second, I'm much more worried about people stealing from my family and ending the economy as opposed to who they touch sexual organ with.
