Tuesday, September 7, 2004 Weekly Worst PDF

     The so-called mainstream media never admit their liberal tilt, so the news analysts at the Media Research Center tirelessly document their bias. The "award" for last week goes to liberal journalists who touted Democratic "rock stars" in Boston but who led the resistance to the GOP's convention:

Don't Be Conned by Moderate Speakers. On Sunday's Nightly News, Tom Brokaw warned viewers not to believe that Republicans were sensible centrists just because moderates like John McCain were on the stage: "Streetwise New Yorkers may call that the political equivalent of a popular con game in this tough town three-card monte.

Tuesday afternoon on his MSNBC show, Brokaw in New York, Brokaw told Maine's moderate Senator Susan Collins that she had no place at the GOP convention: "You have no place in this convention. The platform does not seem to speak to a lot of women in this country. It's anti-abortion, it does not expand stem cell research. On other social issues in which women have some interest, for example, gay unions, [it] is formally opposed to that."
NBC's Tom Brokaw suggested the GOP platform contains nothing for women.

The next morning, ABC's George Stephanopoulos seconded Klein's disdain: "Zell Miller was on a tirade. I mean, he was red-faced," the former Clinton aide complained. Time's Joe Klein

Not Compassionate. CBS's John Roberts was disdainful as he previewed Bush's speech for Thursday's Evening News: "He hopes to rekindle his year 2000 mantra of compassionate conservatism, a goal his critics say would be a stunning feat given his record of the past three years."
