Media Matters Finds 'Conservative Misinformation' at NY Times, WaPo, CNN
The VRWC is apparently even vaster than we realized.
In a fund-raising email today David Brock, President of Media Matters, the organization that some might consider the left-wing counterpart to NewsBusters, claimed [emphasis added]:
"Media Matters has already exposed more than 6,000 instances of conservative misinformation in just two years -- and not just from right-wing news outlets such as Fox News Channel, but from sources like CNN, The Washington Post, and The New York Times."
Brock cites two instances in which Media Matters corrected errors at the Washington Post. But might the conservative rot run deeper? Could Paul Krugman be a deep RNC mole? Christiane Amanpour a conservative agent provocateur? E.J. Dionne perhaps a catspaw for Karl Rove?
Aside: If the NY Times, CNN and WaPo are hotbeds of "conservative misinformation," maybe I've been missing out on some mirror-image problems. Think I'll head over to Human Events, NRO and The American Conservative to look for any tell-tale signs of liberal bias.
