Time Out for a Comment

Here is a great blog posting by Dennis Fox:

http://blog.dennisfox.net/index.php/archives/2004/10/25/for-honest-media-bias/

He expresses what I am trying to demonstrate in my examples of bias. From the perspective of my blog, here is a quote from Dennis Fox:

News is always filtered. Someone always decides what stories to cover, which aspects of those stories are important and which can be omitted, whether to take something at face value or dig further. Even an apolitical journalist makes choices based on a sense of journalistic responsibility, the public good, or some other equally value-laden objective reflecting the lives of middle-class professional journalists. And such filtering is necessary. Unfiltered news would overwhelm us, as anyone trying to make their way through the blogosphere should understand. …

I think my examples of differences between CNN and Fox News stories show that there is always bias in the choices of stories and what to say about them (even "honest bias" as Dennis Fox talks about in his post).
