the Leftist Press ...

Thanks to deviantsaint for pointing this out in his journal ... it's a piece by John Leo, writing in today's USNews, in which he covers how "bloggers" (uh, I guess that's us) are throwing a cold hard light on the Leftist bias of "the major media". The central point of this is how the various Iraqi blogs were all over Paul Bremer's "departure speech", while the Washington Post and Los Angeles Times DENIED that Bremer had made any such speech, with the vile L.A. paper criticizing Bremer for not making a final speech to Iraq while they knew damn well he had (Newhouse News Service had reported on it five days previous to their article!) and they simply chose not to cover it. Here's a snippet:

"{many} think the most powerful big-time news outlets are becoming more and more partisan. The Times may be on its way to becoming Exhibit A for this belief."

It's a great piece ... it's at: http://www.usnews.com/usnews/issue/040719/opinion/19john.htm
