Media on board for Bush or Kerry?

This should be an easy question to answer, but that would preclude the surreal world inhabited by liberals, particularly Iowa City ones. This is the piece I wrote for the DI responding to the question above, plus the counterargument from another staff writer. I think we ended up looking good on this one ("we" being the intellectual giants here at this cutting-edge blog). Brendan didn't use any stats, excepting the one about Rathergate and that didn't really serve a purpose in his editorial anyways. He might be better served asking what exactly Rather's initial story suggested, not what the subsequent coverage of it did.

It's also unbelievable that we're having a discussion about Bush's flip-flops. You'd think any good liberal would just change the subject when that topic is brought up, since any rational mind would conclude Kerry's not in any position to throw stones. Or the Swift Boat Vets topic: how long before the media even covered that story? And has there been any mention of Christmas in Cambodia since then? If the media wasn't so busy digging around for George Bush's National Guard records (because the previous three feeding frenzies didn't sate their appetite), perhaps they'd quit carrying water for Kerry and do their goddamn job.

If you check out the piece, let me know what you think.

Other dude's piece was nothing but misdirection: he wrote an attack piece on Bush and tried to pass it off as a critique of the media. His thesis seems to be that because the mainstream media has not pursued every Bush rumor with quite the same gusto as Democratic Underground and Michael Moore -- which is debatable -- then they must be biased for the President. Once again, throwing poop against the wall, praying for something to stick.
