CNN Hides Blagojevich's Party Affiliation in Embarrassing AP Story
After Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich had an embarrassing appearance on "The Daily Show," many had a good laugh. The Associated Press even reported on it:

Blagojevich says he didn't realize "The Daily Show" was a comedy spoof of the news when he sat down for an interview that ended up poking fun at the sometimes-puzzled Democratic governor.

CNN also picked up the wire story, but decided to change an interesting detail:

Blagojevich says he didn't realize "The Daily Show" was a comedy spoof of the news when he sat down for an interview that ended up poking fun at the sometimes- puzzled governor

How sad. Over something so trivial as this, CNN decided to hide Governor Blagojevich's party affiliation. And we're supposed to believe they're unbiased?

Yes it is sad that, with all of the deceit and corruption permeating the Republican party and the right-wing owned news media, you focus on something so trivial. How pathetic.

Now, if you want to see some outrageous, blatant, shameless media bias, ABOUT SUBJECTS WHICH ACTUALLY MATTER, you should watch another cable news channel.

Quote:
Link: Fox's Cameron, Hume criticized Reid for same word choice on Dubai Ports World issue as Hume previously used

Summary: Fox News' Brit Hume and Carl Cameron both took issue with Sen. Harry Reid's statement that in allowing state-owned Dubai Ports World (DPW) to manage terminal operations at six major U.S. ports, the Bush administration gave "another country control of our ports." Cameron retorted that DPW "is not taking control of any U.S. ports" and Hume later claimed that Reid's assertion was "factually challenged." However, numerous Fox News reporters and anchors -- including Hume himself -- have described DPW as "assuming control" of the ports.

REID: How in the world was the decision made to give another country control of our ports? It's not another company taking control of our ports. It's another country. This is a state-owned company.

HUME: ...they are not getting control of the ports.

HUME:Harry Reid made some news, even though some of what he said was factually challenged.

Hume and Fox News correspondent Major Garrett have repeatedly described DPW as assuming "control" of U.S. ports. For example, on the February 20 edition of the show, Garrett used such language to describe the deal:

GARRETT: Dubai Ports World may also gain control of two other U.S. ports...

HUME: Arab Americans are blaming the uproar over that Arab company assuming control over some U.S. ports...

HUME: The Bush administration was trying today to dig itself out of a political hole on the question of who should control some of the nation's ports.

Numerous other Fox News anchors and reporters have used similar language in recent days, including hosts John Gibson, Sean Hannity, Bill Hemmer, and Eric Burns, and anchors Uma Pemmaraju and Page Hopkins.

From the February 20 edition of Fox News Live:

PEMMARAJU: Well as we've been reporting, a firestorm of criticism rising over plans to give control of some major U.S. ports to a company from the United Arab Emirates.

HEMMER: ...this company out of United Arab Emirates to control U.S. ports...

HOPKINS: ...a deal to give an Arab firm control of six U.S ports.

From the February 21 edition of Fox News' Big Story with John Gibson:

GIBSON: President Bush vows to veto any effort to stop Dubai Ports World from taking control of six major seaports.

From the February 23 edition of Fox News' Hannity & Colmes:

HANNITY: ... the plan to allow a United Arab Emirates-owned company to control six U.S. ports would not compromise national security.

From the February 25 edition of Fox News Watch:

BURNS: The president wants a government-owned company from the United Arab Emirates to take over control of six major American ports.
