Sometimes liberal bias in the mass media is so blatant it needs to be called out. An AP story from last weekend followed up on an allegation first reported in the Washington Times along with a caveat meant to impugn the credibility of that news organization:
The Washington Times, a conservative newspaper, reported Friday that Obama told Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in June that an agreement between the United States and the leaders to allow U.S. troops to stay in the country after 2008 should not go into effect unless it had congressional approval.
Later in the same wire story, other news organizations are referenced without disclaimer:
The Obama campaign has repeatedly said that the Illinois Democrat repudiates the Weather Underground's activities. … Many news organizations -- including The New York Times and The Washington Post -- have found that the association between the two men was not close.
How is this fair and impartial reporting? Shouldn’t this have read: “…The New York Times and The Washington Post, two liberal newspapers…”
