Media Bias

Not, perhaps, the most surprising post today - but, then again, if you had wanted to be surprised you would have rented Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and found it stars little Debbie Gibson! Is my childhood music not sacred, Hollywood? Little Debbie Gibson in a movie about gigantic sea monsters?

Where was I? Oh, yeah - Media Bias.

Not bias towards badly-produced movies about gigantic cartilaginous fish and huge cepholapods , but rather bias towards the agenda of the Left. Yeah, I know - stop me if you've heard this before.

Oh, drat - everyone stopped me. Ah well, I shall carry on anyway.

Check out this article which makes my points in a manner less sarcastic (and with less sea-monsters) than I would, but which is a little more thoroughly researched than I can be bothered with. Seriously, good article.

Okay, not new news at all. But it illustrates the same point I have made before (on this blog and others) - the media has a strong left-wing bias. The death of George Tiller was murder, plain and simple. It is completely and totally wrong.

But so is the murder of American soldiers on American soil by a man who may have been (according to some reports) a Muslim convert and terrorist sympathizer. George Tiller may have been innocent in the eyes of the law (even though he was not in the eyes of God) but so were the people hurt in the other attack.

And the coverage of these two events should be similar - they should generate the same number of column inches.

Guess what? They don't. I think Debbie Gibson and her excessively large calamari gets more coverage (yes, I know calamari is made of squid and squids are not octopuses - it is called dramatic license).

So, that is just one of the many examples of media bias. There are, of course, a number of solutions to this - one is to hide in a cave like some kind of hermit and be exposed to none of it. This is not recommended.

The other solution is to subscribe to RealCatholicTV.com and get the other side of the story there!

RealCatholicTV.com - a better use of video than giant octopuses and far superior to living in a cave.
