Conservative Radio Talk Show Hosts and Conservative Bloggers Rejoice!
The long campaign against the inequity of the evil “MSM” (Main Stream Media) and their bias against all things conservative will finally be challenged in the public light for all to bear witness to its dark underbelly.
(Examiner.com) - New White House Press Secretary Tony Snow continued to go after the media Thursday by accusing the Associated Press and Washington Post of unfair coverage of President Bush. WASHINGTON
Since starting his job Monday, Snow has challenged five major news outlets in a clear signal that he will be more aggressive than his mild-mannered predecessor, Scott McClellan.
This week he has hit back at The New York Times and USA Today. On Thursday, he criticized the AP for a story headlined: “Army Guard, Reserve fall short of April recruiting goals.”
The White House countered: “The Army National Guard, Air Force Reserve, and Marine Corps Reserve all have exceeded or achieved their year-to-date recruitment goals.”
But beware ye jubilant traditionalist, because this confrontation will work both ways:
“The White House is clearly manipulating what I broadcast to fit their agenda,” wrote reporter Jim Axelrod on a CBS blog. “And they are wrong to do that.”
Axelrod suggested he was the victim of “selective editing on the part of the White House to make their own political points.”
“Very simply, the White House is cutting and pasting to make a point, something they accuse their critics of doing constantly,” he said.
When it’s done in the media, we call it “unfair bias”, and when it’s done by government officials, we call it propaganda… You say tomato, I say bull crap!
Give me some truth already, Good Grief!
