Time and Space have no Meaning

At least night when it comes to measuring Liberal Media Bias. Larry Elder's latest article takes aim at the idea that the media had a negative opinion of Hillary Clinton during the latest Primary Season. Although many people (including yours truly) think the Media was harder on Clinton than on Obama, that's just not true.

And to prove it he pulls some examples out of his file from 1993, 2001, 1993, 2001, 1993, 2001, and then, worst of all, 2001.

Yep back in 1993 the Media probably did give Hillary Clinton more coverage than Barack Obama. And in 2001, if memory serves, Hillary Clinton was running for the Senate? Once again she got way more coverage than Barack Obama.

Frankly Elder loses his train of thought in this article; choosing to drop the theory that the Media was just as soft on Hillary as they were on Barack, to move on to the theory that the New York Times published Editorials that were critical of President Bush and Rudy Giuliani. Amazing.

Edited to add. I am rereading the article; I think my sarcasm above was unwarrented (although still funny). Elder apparently wanted to prove that the Media is easier on Liberals than Republicans; he just started his standard article on this issue with a bit on Clinton and Obama which threw me off.
