Late Night Weekend Video Treat: Liberal Media Bias Ballad
In the 45-minute production, which will re-run several times over the next week or so (HBO's schedule for it), Pelosi showed a snippet of Hank Williams Jr. singing these lyrics at a McCain-Palin rally in Ft. Wayne, Indiana:
The left wing liberal media have always been a real close-knit family.Amongst the signs Pelosi showed from the campaign trail: “Stop the Liberal Media Bias” and “CNN is Bad News.” Plus, this on the back of a T-shirt: “Mainstream Media: Public Enemy #1.”
But most of the American people don't believe them anyway, you see.
When the documentary first aired in mid-February, the Washington Post's Michael Leahy reported those House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's daughter selected to showcase sounded:
[L]ike yahoos, often goaded, always reduced to soundbites and caricatures. All the conventions of the smirking, winking, belittling political documentary are abided by in this film. An inordinate number of the yahoos wear T-shirts and weird caps. There is the obligatory NASCAR tailgating scene with the requisite Confederate flags and some white guys saying they'll never vote for any black man.
