Oops, AP? Bellingham Herald? Your bias is showing again

Filed under: Media Issue — Tags: , , , — wally @ 6:06 am

deposed Is it media bias from Associated Press or from the Bellingham Herald who just recently endorsed Gov. Gregoire over Dino Rossi?   I’ll go with both.

Dino Rossi must give a deposition before election day, he is not being deposed from his position as a candidate for governor; if that is even possible.

Who, but a lawyer would even understand that this headline meant Dino Rossi was being asked to give a deposition?  And who but a severely biased media source, skilled with words and biased against Dino Rossi would even think to use this version of deposed?

Oh! Oh! pick me! pick me!  I know the answer.  Media that so much wants to write a grabby headline, that they don’t mind unscrupulously trashing Dino Rossi’s name in public to get that grabby headline.

So which answer is correct, biased or unscrupulous?

I know someone at the Herald reads this blog, so pass this along to your boss.  I bet there are a lot of people who would like to see a retraction printed tomorrow on the same page in the same font.  Not after the election, not in little print on some back page.  Big print tomorrow.  And how about an investigation to find the political leanings of the headline author?  possible

And just to show you what is possible; check the headline on the right that is attached to the very same AP article.  Informative and immanently less biased than what we see here in Bellingham.

This author will be voting for a capable man of integrity and great character; Dino Rossi.
