Evan Thomas of Newsweek has admitted outright that the media is biased towards John Kerry:
The media â€œwants Kerry to winâ€ and so â€œtheyâ€™re going to portray Kerry and Edwards as being young and dynamic and optimisticâ€ and â€œthereâ€™s going to be this glow aboutâ€ them, Evan Thomas, the Assistant Managing Editor of Newsweek, admitted on Inside Washington over the weekend. He should know. His magazine this week sports a smiling Kerry and Edwards on its cover with the yearning headline, â€œThe Sunshine Boys?â€ Inside, an article carrying Thomasâ€™ byline contrasted how â€œDick Cheney projects the bleakness of a Wyoming winter, while John Edwards always appears to be strolling in the Carolina sunshine.â€ The cover story touted how Kerry and Edwards â€œbecame a buddy-buddy act, hugging and whispering like Starsky and Hutch after consuming the evidence.â€
It’s enough to make one sick. This summer is going to see the media giving one sloppy wet kiss to their Democratic paramours after another. Forget about things like “objectivity” or “the truth” the media has their golden boys, and they do whatever it takes to make them look good.
