Liberal Media My Butt!

Here's another example of the right wing bias of our MSM drive by media.

If someone else had done what Fox News star Bill OReilly did the other day malign American troops who fought in the Battle of the Bulge and at Iwo Jima it's hard to imagine how ugly the Fox News reaction would be.
Think of how vicious the attacks from Fox News and right-wing commentators were on Sen. Dick Durbin for citing FBI criticism of detainee abuse at Guantanamo, or the smears against Dan Rather and other journalists who helped expose the scandal at Abu Ghraib, or the ugly campaign to boycott the Dixie Chicks for criticizing George W. Bush.
If one of those usual liberal suspects had said something one-tenth as offensive as O'Reillys remarks, Fox News surely would have offered up one of its loaded questions, like Is (fill in the blank) Anti-American or Just Blinded by Hatred of Our Troops?
But it's hard to imagine any comments as outrageous as O'Reillys loose talk about war crimes supposedly committed by U.S. Army forces fighting in Belgium and by U.S. Marines in the bloody battle at Iwo Jima.

How rarely do we hear criticism of the right in the media..even if they're wrong? Bush and the right have gotten a free pass since Sept. 11th. It is only now very slowly changing. It's about time.

Here's video of the factually challenged O Liely.
