Busting Liberal Media Bias - Launch of NewsBusters

Years ago, we had to wait for Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather to come on the air before we could get the latest liberal media bias--only they called it news. Most news was one-sided and journalists seemed to have a code of protecting their own, making it worse. In 1987, the Media Research Center (MRC) was launched "to bring balance and responsibility to the news media." They must be doing a good job because all the liberals that I know hate it. Now, the MRC has kicked it up a notch by introducing a new site, NewsBusters, which shines immediate light on media bias--meaning that you don't have to wait all day to discover the latest on how the press is misleading the public.

This week, the Media Research Center launched a new Web site,, a blog site designed to provide immediate exposure of liberal media bias, insightful analysis, constructive criticism, and timely corrections to news media reporting. Joining the MRC in this project are Matt and Greg Sheffield, the brothers who ran the highly successful Web site that became a must-visit clearinghouse of information about the disgraced ex-CBS anchor’s skewed reporting.

With an army of bloggers — including both MRC’s team of news analysts and a wide array of independent contributors — there is already a wealth of material at, including careful transcripts of news broadcasts and provocative commentary.

This is an example from today. You have to read it to enjoy the bias and hypocrisy.

The site is new, but it shows a lot of promise and will be a good reference site whenever you feel the urge the trust the liberal media.

Ah, yes, Media Research Center, founded by L. Brent Bozell III, Executive Director of the Conservative Victory Committee! Sure, the biased calling bias.

Sorry, this one doesn't pass the no fly zone, or the smell test. Stick to

Jim, I found the MRC to use objective support such as numbers of reports, times that certain words of bias were used, contradictions in reporting similar actions of Dems & Repubs, etc. I can put my mind around numbers a lot easier than subjective anlayses or feelings. In a sense (though not totally), numbers don't lie.

I don't know enough about, but I have seen it and I'll take a look. ...I'm back. I see that it's founded and funded by the Annenbergs and run by a university, so I'm a little suspicious. But, I'll use it in conjunction with my other tools so that you can be sure to trust my conclusions.

I sometimes wonder if Woody uses dry wit as a defense against Georgia humidity... :)
