Liberal media gives Moran a pass


The Media Research Center notes the differing media reaction on the whole Jim Moran flap. If you remember, when Trent Lott showed support for Strom Thurmond, he was ostracized by Democrats and Republicans alike, and the media lapped it up. Lott was forced to give up his position as Senate leader.

Recently Jim Moran blamed the war in Iraq on the J-E-W-S, and the silence was almost deafening. CNBC even noted the differing media reaction. The networks pretty much gave Moran a pass, and ABC has yet to even report on it. When Moran gave up his 'regional whip' position (he was 26th in line for Democrat leadership) CBS even played up his 'punishment' by reporting that he was "was forced out today as the Democratic Party whip," which is actually a senior congressional position.

Same way with Byrd. He was on a news program, said some extremely racial remarks, and yet, the media turns their faces, and the democratic party doesn't even whimper at the whole thing. And the Republicans stay out of it -- WHY?? I just don't understand. But what can you do?

The double-standards still suprise you? Just look at the shit Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton get away with.
