A lesson in bias

For those who didn't click the link the John Cross' deconstruction of the media on Drumwaster's Rants, here's a quick overview:

Oh.....one last comparison over the last week:

Cindy Sheehan: 4680 pages

Tammy Pruett: 5 pages.

Casey Sheehan (you know, who this is REALLY all about): 1020 pages

“Cindy Sheehan’s Mother” (remember HER?): 4 pages

UM..I’m sorry....who’s this about, again? What balanced media? No slant to speak of here.

Move along. Nothing to see…


For a little more ammunition, jkelly at Irish Pennants has yet another little tidbit of information, aka "Fun with Google!"

I did a Google search a few minutes ago. The "storied" LtCol. Kurilla has been mentioned 5,420 times. The most decorated Marine in this conflict, Capt. Brian Chontosh, drew 10,700 hits. There were 14,500 for Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester, the first woman to win the Silver Star since World War II. Sgt. Paul Smith, the only Medal of Honor winner in the conflict has drawn 1,010,000 hits. But all their mentions together pale into insignificance compared to the 4,970,000 hits for Cindy Sheehan. I think this tells us all we need to know about the priorities of the "mainstream" media.


For those who like to count these things, there were 1,040,620 total hits on soldiers rightly decorated for their bravery and actions. That's a little more than ONE FUCKING FIFTH of the hits on an anti-war loony moonbat who's only claim to fame is having a son who stood for everything this bint is badmouthing die in Iraq.

At this point the media is not only rooting for an American failure, they are actively pushing for that failure with everything they've got.
