Someone who had connections to conservative commentators needs to forward these two Free Republic threads to them. If we hadn't have been paying attention, this liberal bias would have remained. But we caught them. It needs to be noted when the Left tries to ridicule the charge of a Liberal media bias.

I saw it live on TV and didn't hear one boo.

Rather, I heard applause when Bush asked for prayers for Clinton.

My favorite one was last Q when the economy grew by 2.8% and the headline was "Confirmed: US Economy Contracting". They had to change that one two. But not after a few million people read it.
