In November of 1994, Peter Jennings summed up the recent election of many Republicans by saying, “Imagine a nation full of controlled two-year-old rage. The voters had their temper tantrum last week.”
Even better, Dan Rather told Bill Clinton that if they(the news media), “could be one-hundreth as great a you and Hilary Rodham Clinton have been in the White House, we’d take it away and walk away winners.”
In 1996, 89% of the national news media voted for Bill Clinton and 7% for Dole(check the Roeper Forum survey results). Let me make myself clear. I do not care if any news reporter is liberal or conservative. What bothers me is that they get away with pretending they are not partial either way. Rather even is on record saying that he, “respectfuly doesn’t know what you’re talking about,” when asked about the liberal bias.
Is this fair? Does anyone care? How do they get away with it?
