In yesterday’s quick post on this I wrote:
Why is it that virtually all of the total crock stories are anti-Bush/War? Shouldn’t these honest mistakes fall more or less evenly across the board? Does the media more-readily swallow the stories that support their position? Or are there more liars on the Left?
I’d like to clarify my position a bit, as this grabbed the attention of a few folks.
The question “Or are there more liars on the Left?” was offered as a logical alternative to the idea that these total crock stories weren’t “honest mistakes” by the media. Since I DON’T believe that there are more liars on the Left, I’m sticking with idea that, by and large, the media seems (to me) more likely to run anti-Bush/war stories that later turn out to be false than they are to run pro-Bush/war stories that later turn out to be false.
Maybe I’m wrong, though it sure doesn’t seem like it off the top of my head.
So I’m NOT saying that the Left has more liars. There is obviously no shortage of liars in any camp. I’m saying that since the Left doesn’t have more liars, it’s odd that these total crock stories generally seem to always fall the same direction.
