USeless Today

Babble on.

When Ann Coulter got canned by USA Today:
Coulter told Human Events: "Apparently, USA Today doesn't like my 'tone,' humor, sarcasm, etc. etc., which raises the intriguing question of why they hired me to write for them in the first place. Perhaps they thought they were getting Catherine Coulter." Coulter was hired in a sort of package deal, with leftist hatemonger and fantasy filmmaker Michael Moore offering bile from the Republican convention next month. "My guess is they will 'get' his humor," said Coulter.

Apparently she was right. From the bulging, overflowing, positively bursting at the seams "What Liberal Media Bias?" file: Ann Coulter gets spiked, Michael Moore gets published.

Babble off.

The preponderence of leftist sentiment among the mainstream media is getting harder and harder for its practictioners to continue to deny. Of course, what choice do they have but to maintain denial? To admit their bias completely undermines their credibility (and therefore their ability to influence). Secondly, an admission of bias is an admission of unprofessional, even unethical conduct, which is personally devastating.

No one should be surprised then, with the automatic " no bias over here " refrain. There's simply too much at stake for the perpetrators.

Hey, media bias? Gwon! Fortunately, even though the Old Lefties Network has the "Mainstream Media" all locked up, the advent of blogging and the internet in general is levelling the playing field, and it's happening at light speed. Instapundit and Powerline have lots to say about that. I think the MM is beginning to realize it too. I hope the internet will prove useful for conservatives (in the large sense) to fight the war of ideas in Canada too. So far, so good. Let's see if bloggers are allowed a place at the table the next time a major election or party convention comes aroudn in Canada.
