Michelle Malkin in this article displays the contrast in reporting by the New York Times on the GOP efforts to enlist Christian voters as compared to its softball coverage and cheerleading of President Clinton’s speech at the Riverside Church. The following from the Time’s coverage is unbelievable (well maybe not for the NYT).
"Former President Bill Clinton offered a hard-hitting attack against the Republican Party yesterday, telling worshipers gathered at Riverside Church that President Bush and the Republicans are distorting John Kerry’s war record in Vietnam. ‘Sometimes I think our friends on the other side have become the people of the Nine Commandments,’ Mr. Clinton said. ‘It is wrong to bear false witness.’ "
The Presidential Perjurer himself attacking others for false witness? I wonder if he wagged his finger at the congregation. Even funnier is that he talks about missing commandments for someone that has no problem with "Thou shall not kill" when it comes to the unborn and has not exactly been the model for faithful marriage. Regardless though I pray for him and wish him well as he faces quadruple bypass heart surgery today.
And speaking of media bias. Lane Core Jr. makes a brilliant observation on the trends in Time magazine covers. He illustrates his point effectively with the covers themselves and this can truly be categorized as coloring the news.
