More on media bias

"In a story about national media coverage of the government response to the Katrina hurricane disaster, the Los Angeles Times said that news coverage had 'turned confrontational' as 'many reporters shed their stance of neutrality and joined numerous commentators in criticizing local, state and federal officials for their seemingly slow reaction to the calamity.' In fact, this story was itself biased. Most of the coverage was confrontational toward the federal government. That is, the Bush administration. And that confrontational attitude was more evidence of a bias against Republicans and conservatives."
