NewsBusters, Steve Malzberg Discuss Media Bias Against Palin

ST. PAUL, Minn.-- NewsBusters Editor Matthew Sheffield and Associate Editor Noel Sheppard appeared on the Steve Malzberg Show live from Radio Row at the Republican Convention at 4:30 p.m. EDT today. The topic: Gov. Sarah Palin's speech to the Republican convention and the intensely biased coverage of her nomination.

Introducing Sheffield and Sheppard, Malzberg praised NewsBusters as "one of the greatest Web sites of all time" and said he frequently refers liberal friends to the site for documented evidence of liberal media bias.

A few highlights follow below the fold (video embedded right):

NOEL SHEPPARD: I think the most shocking thing here was you've got female reporters who have children that are saying, "Well, why isn't she home taking care of her kids?"

STEVE MALZBERG: And she's not home taking care of her kids!

SHEPPARD: It's unbelievable.

MATTHEW SHEFFIELD: They're away from their children during a weekday night, talking about Sarah Palin not being with her children.
