Media Bias Analyzed

(Tip o' the hat to Blackfive.)

IRAQ Now is calling out mainstream media in regards to General Mattis' oft-repeated quote, "I don't have to apologize for the conduct of my men." Jason first presents us with a link to the verbatim transcript of General Mattis' press conference, and then shows several examples of mainstream media's distortion of the facts.

Violating Journalism's Code of Ethics means that the reporter has ceased being a detached, objective scribe of human events, and has become in its place, a mere writer of fiction.

I prefer to get my fiction in the bookstore by people who are good at it.

Also of interest is this from The Truth Laid Bear: the DNC is issuing press passes to bloggers. The process appears to be somewhat involved -- it'd be interesting if any of Civi-Call's readers are planning to go for it. From an quick update posted by TTLB, it seems that the RNC will be looking into doing the same.

I wonder if the DNC will actually issue credentials to any conservative bloggers?

If you know the answer, please sound off!
