Media Fail

Posted in Media Bias,U.S. by Ryan on the April 16th, 2012

I’m a casual news junkie, and yet I am repeatedly confronted with statements from “media personalities” that don’t seem to be very good at their job.

John Avlon writes about Rep. Allen West’s “communists in congress” comment. ┬áHe laments the lack of civility and how this is horrible to associate members of the Democratic Party with Communism, which is responsible for the death of millions of people.

I personally have no idea why West said what he did, but Avlon’s dismay at the lack of condemnation causes him to draw the following comparison.

And just for a moment imagine if a liberal member of Congress made an equal and opposite accusation, saying that all the members of the tea party caucus were Nazis. It would be rightly greeted with wall-to-wall outrage.


I assume John Avlon simply collects a check from CNN for word count.
