PINKO! :wink:

Anywhoo, JPP I am mostly on your side on this discussion, but really the media is not primarily right. The majority of major news networks definitely lean to the left, granted it may not be as left as most on the left would like but it is left of center. And nowadays if you question the regime..err..government too much you get the label of an unpatriotic, unamerican commie. So it really isn't surprising that they are walking on some eggshells.

Fox News of course is a whole 'nother story.
I am with Jpp13 here. American media is not as left as it used be, not by a long shot.

Best,

Maybe I misunderstood but JPP13 was not saying that the news media is changing. He claimed that the news media is completely biased to the right, covering up all of Bush's scandles and exposing all of Clinton's.

I don't know about you but CNN covering up atrocities in Iraq

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/ar ... Apr14.html
http://www.accessatlanta.com/ajc/busine ... hreat.html

so that the can stay in Iraq is not responsible journalism. If they were working for Bush as JPP13 claims they would have been falling all over themselves to publish this info to help convince the world that Iraqs government needed replaced.
