The media

On Minnesota Politics Discuss there is yet another argument over whether the media has a liberal bias. Anybody who pays attention to these things knows that the media doesn't have a liberal bias, it has a pathetic bias. Case in point: Johnny Carson died today, and channel 9 news, the local Fox affiliate, advertised that they would be talking to a boyhood friend of Carson, who now lives in Minnesota. Wow! Will the other networks respond in kind, maybe by interviewing somebody who once saw Carson on a plane?

I hate that parochial local news "Minnesota Angle" shit.

"Tsunami kills 150,000 in Asia! Tonight at ten, we talk to a man from Minnetonka who once had a cousin who went to Phuket!"

"President Clinton impeached! Tonight we'll talk to a Minnesota man whose daughter once went to camp with Chelsea!"

"Election outrage grips Ukraine! When we return, we'll talk to a Maplewood woman who once had koltchkes at Victor Ushenko's wife's uncle's bakery in Chicago!"
