Media Bias 101

Today's example is from the AP's Jennifer Loven in a story regarding the prime-time press conference Pres. Bush has called tonight. Here is paragraph 4 of the story:

A prime-time audience for what amounts to a speech at the top of the session allows Bush to seek to move the focus of public attention away from the alleged ethical improprieties of a key White House ally in Congress, House Majority Tom DeLay, R-Texas, and the troubled nomination of Bush's choice to be the next U.N. ambassador, John Bolton. Both controversies have dominated talk in the nation's capital in recent weeks.

You see? Public attention is on DeLay's ethics and the DEMOCRATS' specious objections to John Bolton, not on issues like energy policy, social security or the UN's corruption. Talk about the news media's liberal echo chamber.
