Quote of the month

"I'd hardly call Fox [News] conservative" - Jeff Gannon during a National Press Club panel discussion on journalism and blogging

And he said that with a straight face.

Way to go little guy!
I know this probably sounds sarcastic, but it's not meant that way.

I have been through your blog a few times and I wonder... where you have buried your attacks on liberal journalism?

Hume's Ghost said...

My "attacks" are on what I deem to be poor journalism. And worse than any liberal or conservative bias that can be attributed to the media is the growing tendency towards corporate media. Don't expect to see the "liberal" NBC news doing a hard hitting piece about General Electric's negative impact on the environment anytime soon, for example.

Additionally, the problem with the quote here is not that Fox is conservative, its that Gannon would deny that Fox is conservative when they are openly a station that targets a conservative audience.
