Man, those percentages are unbelievable!

it's not that amazing, when you compare like to like. Heritage is only flagged about 20% more often than the nakedly political liberal groups. It doesn't even really matter, these numbers are nearly meaningless. REAL bias is a very subjective thing, like the newspapers turning press releases from liberal groups into news stories without second thought, but second-guessing conservative groups. REAL bias is not calling people terrorists, even when they terrorize civilian populations by threatening them with acts of violence. REAL bias is found by SmarterTimes.com every day--I'm just trying to counter the argument made by Nunberg.

And actually, Nunberg's argument is more compelling than I've made it out to be. The last search he did on his database only included news articles (the others were not so precise). I haven't ran searches on individuals though, only groups.

I don't really care about this as an issue, except the lefties are claiming it's relevant...
