Media Double Standards

Wisconsin Unions vs. The Tea Party: A Classic Double Standard – WSJ.com

More double standards from a press that is so blind to their blindness that it’s almost funny – except it’s not.

Choice quote:

When it comes to the Tea Party, network correspondents seem to enjoy playing “civility cop,” emphasizing a few radical and inflammatory signs in ways that imply that the entire cause is extreme. Radical and inflammatory signs were easily found at the Wisconsin protests, but the networks uttered not one peep of disapproval — overwhelming evidence of a double standard that should embarrass any network journalist who still purports to be fair and balanced.
