Sarah Palin gave the keynote speech last weekend at the Tea Party Convention. You may have noticed this if you watched any television news, local or cable.
On Sunday morning, the local newspaper in Madison, The Wisconsin State Journal, called by some whose tongues are firmly in cheek, the other WSJ, carried four, one-sentence paragraphs on page six of the front section, an AP piece at that, giving the who, what, when and where. Nothing more.
On the same day, the Internet media sources, CNN to Fox to MSNBC gave pages to the story, with viewpoints, reactions, as well as disparaging sidebars from some outlets. This is the way it is these days.
In Madison, the rule of media seems to include "the shun" to any with an opposing viewpoint. Put them where few will see or read them, and certainly make every effort to pretend they do not exist or have the viewpoint, and hope they'll go away.
Political correctness or media bias?
Take your pick, but have a viewpoint when you do.
