Democrat/liberal machine at work 101
posted by Joel at 5:14 PM
For those who suspect a liberal bias or Democrat bias in the media
"How I Was Smeared" by Harry Stein is a textbook example of the machine at work. It is a long article but well worth the read.
Basically it shows how a small liberal rag of a newspaper can publish something of questionable truth and have the story picked up by successively more "credible" news organizations until the story is laundered and becomes "fact". Then the story is utilized by the proper elected officials in Washington to accomplish thier agenda, in this case, squash the possible future nomination of Bob Mcteer to the Fed Chairmanship.
The fourth estate, abusing its duty to the harm of us all.
