This is not a political blog. My personal politics run toward the fiscally conservative and the socially liberal. As a result, I’m generally too disgusted with both sides to offer an endorsement to either. This time, though, I’m truly irritated. There’s this myth in the USA that the media is exceptionally liberal and attacks conservatives while giving liberals a pass. Recent events prove that this notion is nonsense. Mark Foley, a prominent republican, was caught sending very sexually explicit emails to minors. He’s resigned. But “Liberal media” coverage of thsi has been minimal. In fact, you might say there’s been a cone of silence. The fact that the religious right could tolerate this behavior in one of their own should be non-stop news. The lack of reporting should forever dispel the notion of a “Liberal Media” in these United States.
