Morning Joe co-host, Mika Brzezinski, says of all the reporters, directors, and anchors she knew in her 10 years at CBS, only one was not a liberal. But, of course, they aren’t “actively pushing a perspective,” like Fox News. Sure.
Mark Finkelstein at the Newsbusters article makes a couple of great points:
Full marks to Mika for her frankness. But surely she was joking in claiming, and Joe in agreeing, that CBS and NBC aren’t “pushing a perspective” and that they “try their best to be objective.” Does Dan Rather’s use of blatantly forged documents in an attempt to defeat George Bush in 2004 ring a bell, for example? How about the way NBC turned its entire network over to a “Green Week” promotion of an Algoresque global-warming perspective?
Media bias, nah……
