>Media Bias: Union Violence Ignored
>There's an old saying in journalism, "If it bleeds, it leads." In
>other words, violence makes headlines. Unless, of course, it is
>left-wing violence against conservatives. In that case, the media
>collectively shrug and spike the story.
>That was the case in Michigan yesterday as union thugs went on a
>rampage outside the state capitol after the legislature passed a
>right-to-work law. We reported yesterday that a tent sponsored by a
>conservative organization was torn down while people were still
>inside. But unless you were watching Fox News, you probably saw
>nothing about the attack on Steven Crowder, a conservative comedian
>and Fox commentator.
>Crowder was pummeled by union thugs. The vitriol and the vicious
>attack were caught on tape. You can watch it
>Crowder wasn't the only one.
>Tarver, a hot dog vender, had his cart trashed and was called "Uncle
>Tom" and a "ni--er" because he was selling hot dogs to conservatives.
>Yet even with one liberal legislator warning,
>will be blood" as a result of the vote, there wasn't a single story
>about this left-wing union violence on CBS News last night.
>I raise this to once again demonstrate the incredible bias
>conservatives are confronting in the "main stream" media. When the
>Tea Party movement began in early 2009 around the idea of reducing
>federal spending, polls showed favorable public support for the
>movement. Then the media smear machine went to work.
>Almost immediately Tea Party supporters, largely middle-aged and
>senior citizens, were portrayed as semi-fascists who were trying to
>hijack the democratic process. Two years later, after a barrage of
>distorted lies by the media, the public had soured on the Tea Party.
>Consider this excerpt from an April
>report about the polling data:
>"While overall support is roughly balanced with overall opposition,
>'strong' opponents outnumber strong supporters by 2-1. But perhaps
>most damaging is the buzz: Fifty percent of Americans say the more
>they hear about the Tea Party, the less they like it; just 27
>percent say they like it more."
>When there was a massive anti-Obamacare rally in Washington, D.C.,
>the media went wild with claims that black members of Congress were
>subjected to racial slurs and that one was spit on by a Tea Party
>member. Despite thousands of people present with cell phone video
>cameras, there was never any proof the allegations were true. In
>taken of the event refuted the allegations, but the left-wing narrative stuck.
