How Stating the False Hides the True

At first glance this essay makes a lot of sense but think about it. Is the media not biased? The author makes the assumption himself by referencing Fox News. Still, great comments after it and worth a read! (Thanks Justin for another great link!)

Hey Donncha — cheers! 😉

The thing is that in the US, the media tries a lot harder to be “balanced” — but in entirely the wrong way (by giving argument points from both sides, the same weight, regardless of their objective truth).

Gimme BBC or Channel 4’s bias any day, at least those guys wear their hearts on their sleeves 😉
