ABC News Explores New Lows
Power Line has a story that sums up why so many bloggers and blog readers have come to hold the Main Stream Media in such contempt.
Jan. 19, 2005 — For a possible Inauguration Day story on ABC News, we are trying to find out if there any military funerals for Iraq war casualties scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 20. If you know of a funeral and whether the family might be willing to talk to ABC News, please fill out the form below:
This is wrong on so many levels that it's hard to know where to begin. Basically ABC feels that a military funeral for an Iraqi war casualty is news on Inaguration Day. Is the funeral on Wednesday or Friday? Tough shit, that's not news. Killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan or Aceh? Again, TS tough guy. Die in an accident in South Carolina or Germany or Japan? No coverage for you, loser.
But don't forget the media are not biased. Not the least. Silly you for thinking that.
