A while back, “journalist” Eric Alterman wrote a book entitled “What Liberal Media?” The book was an attempt to dispel the “myth” that the mainstream media leans left by a wide margin. Alterman was the member of Journolist who referred to Republicans as “f—ing NASCAR retards.”

On the other side, the left had a tizzy when it was learned Fox News/Rupert Murdoch had given $1 million to the Republican Governor’s Association. This prompted the head of the Democratic Governor’s Association to call for Fox News to air a disclaimer every time they did a report on a gubernatorial election.

Hey, I’d agree, provided that ABC, NBC and CBS do the same whenever they air any political story:

Senior executives, on-air personalities, producers, reporters, editors, writers and other self-identifying employees of ABC, CBS and NBC contributed more than $1 million to Democratic candidates and campaign committees in 2008, according to an analysis by The Examiner of data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.

The Democratic total of $1,020,816 was given by 1,160 employees of the three major broadcast television networks, with an average contribution of $880.

By contrast, only 193 of the employees contributed to Republican candidates and campaign committees, for a total of $142,863. The average Republican contribution was $744.

Eighty-eight percent of employees (who identified their employer) of the three networks who donated to candidates gave to Democrats.

Just something to keep in mind the next time a Dem drones on endlessly about Fox News bias. And I don’t know why they’d worry about it, because according David Axelrod, Fox News is not a legitimate news organization (you have to donate to Dems at least 70% of the time to be considered “legitimate” and unbiased).

    As noted yesterday in your "Who Should Be Driving the Car" post at MM.com, the left really should be fans of NASCAR racing; they LOVE to turn the wheel hard left and step on the gas !!! They have us at least 6:1 in major tv/cable news channels; we`re still kicking their arses in the ratings wars !!

    I`m surprised at you Doug, have you been in a cave ? Don`t you know that : down is now up-dark is now light -wrong is right-bad is good-out is in-and judging by your lib v. con. trash comparison this morning at MM.com, the enviro-conscious libs just have it all over us "evil-right-wingers" !!!! / sarc
