Cal Thomas on Media Bias

I love this excerpt from a Cal Thomas column explaining how liberal media bias usually happens:

“For a conservative guest, the questioning by a liberal usually goes something like this: ‘What do you say to people who think you are a jerk?’ Translated this means, ‘I think you’re a jerk, but I’ll couch it in a way that makes me look professional.’ To a liberal guest, the liberal host asks: ‘When did you first realize you were right about everything and the opposition was wrong?’ I exaggerate only slightly to make a point. What passes for modern ‘journalism’ is something quite different from what I remember growing up.”

    lol… Nice article.

    Did he exaggerate at all? I am pretty sure I have heard both of those conversations this week!
