New Media, Same Bias

One might hope that after the recent polls showing that a majority of Americans recognize that the media is biased and actively working to get Obama elected that we might see a change in their behavior.

It would seem these hope are in vain. From the Corner:
John notes that the Washington Post seems to be downplaying the McCain-Palin rally in its backyard. But the bigger crime may be how the Washington Post article on the rally was written. Let's just do a by numbers comparison:

Number of paragraphs in the Washington Post story: 14

Number of paragraphs about pro-Obama protesters: 8

Number of McCain-Palin supporters present: 23,000

Number of Obama protesters: about 30

You do the math.
What more is there to say, really?
