My workouts provide a window into media bias. Yesterday, while doing cardio, I caught CNN”s Piers Morgan interviewing a variety of pundits on MItt Romney’s tax returns. Seems that CNN (save for a brief respite on Erin Burnett OutFront) focused not on the incumbent’s foreign policy failures, but on the minutiae of Mitt Romney’s imagined misdeeds.
Commenting on just one of those foreign policy failures, Walter Russell Mead rejoices that . . .
. . . thankfully we have a Democratic president, and in an election year the normally feisty American media—the same media that worked night and day to expose every flaw and contradiction in the Bush policies in the region (and they had plenty to expose)—is too busy reporting the flaws in the Romney campaign (again, there’s much to report) to pay attention to anything as insignificant as a comprehensively failed presidential strategy in a foreign war.
