    Read this and maybe you will understand, because this is how the progressive media promotes their bullcrap.

    How do you know that was buried? I remember very well when Kennedy was arrested and all the other stories that followed until he left the House. It was widely reported in the news, print and cable. Without an image capture I cannot prove it was on the front page and you cannot prove it wasn't.

    Another more recent case is Jesse Jackson Jr. The mystery surrounding whereabouts this summer. The revelation he was at the Mayo Clinic. The scandal of a federal investigation and his stepping down due to that. All very prominently reported.

    Idaho Republican senator charged with drunk driving - Chicago Tribune

    AGAIN^^ with "republican" in the headline.

    I can throw more out..

    BTW, both were front page news.
    Is there any doubt Patrick Kennedy is a Democrat? Or, as I just added, Jesse Jackson Jr?

    That's exactly what happened. Gotta love Libbo justice.

    My point is media bias...

    The simple fact "republican" was used in the headline was for no goddamn reason but to bash republicans.

    Had the story involved a democrat it would have read: "DuPage County chairman Ramey apologizes for DUI stop - Chicago Tribune" or "Idaho senator charged with drunk driving - Chicago Tribune."

    When democrats get charged with crimes and it makes the paper the headline DOES NOT mention their party affiliation - at least not in the MSM.

    The Libral Media conspiracy meme. The last bastion of conservatives losing another argument on the merits.

    The thread has nothing to do with media bias. It is about Tom delay and and election fraud. Go find a D involved in election fraud

    That's their idea of "fair."
    Psssst: Reagan ended the fairness doctrine. It no longer exists under FCC rules. Regrettably.

    BTW, I've talked to many republicans that denounced DeLay.

    I myself am not even defending him - I'm pointing out that it is epic BS that democrats can even sit here and pretend as if their crap doesn't stink....

    Not to mention why don't you go tell those goddamn progressives they're acting like children when they say: "no fair, you must pay your fair share in taxes."
    Wow! It's like stream of consciousness in Ann Coulter's rumpus room.

    Kennedy and Jackson are common sir names - so it doesn't matter, what also doesn't matter is their political affiliations (republican or democrat) if they get busted for something non-related to their job. However when the MSM writes: "republican blah blah charged with DUI" they are simply trying to tie the alleged crime to the republican party as a whole, when they (the MSM) says: "Patrick Kennedy" charged with DUI they're trying to place the charge on the individual not the political party.

    It's partisan nonsense via implication or more like attempted manipulation of the reader.
