Wow. This "journalist" is amazingly, obviously LIBERAL. No balanced reporting here! No responsible reporting here either. No, wait, Silly me! Mainstream media is CONSERVATIVE, right?

Jeez, do these morons ever watch thier own mainstream ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN...media?! Every single anchor is a radical RAT and totally slants every story to fit with their own agenda! How can they possibly think we will believe the hype about conservative bias? Oh, I know...IT'S A JEDI MIND TRICK....(now waving hand in front of America's face) THE MEDIA IS CONSERVATIVE, THE MEDIA IS CONSERVATIVE...

Who are these consortium people?

Damned if I know, but I'd bet my house they're working hand and glove with the DNC.

If not for the media's fabrication of quotes and distortion of Gore's personal history...

If anything the media distorted Gore's personal history to make him look more favorable. I didn't see any major media reveal that Gore flunked out of both Seminary and Law School. Oh, sorry, did I say flunk out. Technically, he withdrew... because he was flunking.

...conservative outlets, such as the Washington Times and Fox News, and mainstream ones, including the New York Times and the Washington Post...

Telling.

But Gore’s decision did not sit well with some Democrats who remain outraged over Bush’s hardball strategies in Florida, including the disenfranchisement of thousands of African-American voters.

How's that for taking unsubstantiated conjecture and reporting it as fact. Aren't they still looking for some African-American ("anyone, anyone at all") in Florida who will testify that they were prevented from voting? On the other hand, we have ample evidence that the Gore camp challenged almost every single absentee ballot of U.S. servicemen. How despicable.

I love some of the quotes from the liberal media this article puts together. If that's how your allies feel about you, not running for the White House is probably the first wise thing Al Gore's ever done.

Who are these consortium people? Typical Democrat/Green left-whiners. Notice how they put forth the demands of how to counter what they call "conservative bias" but they want somebody else to fund it.

Why don't they get off their own ass and do it? Maybe it's a money loser? Hmmm?

"I find this hilarious. Since when is the WashPost a conservative, non-mainstream outlet?"

And since when is the columnist in question, Michael Kelly, a conservative?

Kelly is a liberal. But he's one of those rare liberals who has somehow retained a conscience -- and the ability to discern right from wrong.

Little reported factoid...when all you guys were doing a great job demonstrating outside the Naval Observatory with the "Sore Loserman" signs and "Get out of Chaney's House" chants...Gore called up the head of the AFL and begged to have them bus some counter demonstraters over there....but they wouldn't do it...

What tripe. Albert Gore Junior was brought down in the polls supposedly because he had his gaffes challenged in the media (and on the internet) yet there is no mention of the savage treatment that George W. Bush got from the media when he gave the same speech several times and flubbed it once. Algore was challenged on the substance of his lies, exagerations, and brag.

And Algore's friend in the Senate, Dan Quayle, didn't get handled with kid gloves in the spotlight either.
