"What Liberal Media?" -- Eric Alterman

Although the headline for the story below stresses the sale of anti-Bush bracelets by sore loser / entrepreneur Berns Rothchild, readers of the whole story will observe that it's not just anti-Bush bracelets being sold, but pro-Bush as well. Apparently a neutral (and accurate) headline like "Political Bracelets On Sale" did not show enough anti-Bush sentiment. Author of the story, the fair and unbiased Elizabeth LeSure, devotes the first 375 words of the story discussing the anti-Bush bracelets along with quotes. Just to be "fair," LeSure then spends an entire 68 words to the pro-Bush bracelets being sold. How is that for balanced? Anti-Bush Bracelets Say, 'Count Me Blue' By ELIZABETH LeSURE
