Liberal bias indeed

    Mock female basketball players = fired.

    Homeless man wants to get freaky with Condi = 30-day suspension.

    Advocate killing former President & current Senator = Crickets

    Liberal media? Show me the outrage then compare with aforementioned non-Paris Hilton/Anna Nicole/TomKat distractions.

    Free speech should be universal. None of the above warrants firings, let the market dictate that but STOP with the liberal media myth.

    If ya care, here's the latest - W is better than Saddam ... at killing Iraqis:

    US President George W. Bush's spokesman yesterday defended the killing of nearly a million civilians in Iraq on the basis that Saddam Hussein did the same.

    "Many have died, and hundreds of thousands died under the previous regime," Tony Snow told reporters at a White House press briefing on the issue hundreds of thousands of civilians being killed by the occupation. "This is a place that has too long been wracked by violence."

    A recent report compiled by 30 NGOs found that nearly a million Iraqis have died due to the effects of the occupation and a dozen cities have been destroyed by US attacks.

    An estimate at 1.5 million people perished under Saddam Hussein's 25-year dictatorship, with half a million of them being killed during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s.

    "Unfortunately, if we fought evil guys who simply would say, you caught us, we're evil, we give up, we'll be good -- that would be great, that would be wonderful," Snow replied when asked whether it is right for the United States to compare itself with a dictatorial regime.

    But Snow said that he was not sure whether or not US forces were killing Iraqis who were opposing American presence in their country, saying "that requires the kind of canvas of those who have died that I'm not capable of doing."



    Proceed to bury heads ... Liberals do. We can't they get an echo chamber if they control the media?

    Guy,

    Good link. Wonder why those that gave (and their employers) don't contribute to THE CAUSE by ignoring Swift Boaters and insessantly following non-stories? I guess impeaching Bill Clinton satisfied the Liberal bias appetite.

    There were plenty more Democrats on that list, but A) most of them are in lower-level positions and B) most of their employers have since restricted or banned campaign contributions.
    What those who cry "liberal media!" don't tell you is that the people who own most of the media and make the big decisions (what gets covered, who gets hired or fired, etc.) are not liberal at all.
    Think that copy editor at the Manchester Union-Leader who backed Dems is still employed?
