MSM Bias Example #5537177

Today a governor of Illinois was idicted for bribery? What party does this person hail from? I have no clue. Not until I get to about the 7th or 8th paragraph of the MSM story.

MSNBC takes 6 paragraphs

Associated Press takes 7 to mention his party.

And amazingly, the Washington Post doesn't mention his party at all.

Compare that to how the Washington Post treated the story of Mark Foley:

Washington Post Staff Writers
Saturday, September 30, 2006; Page A01

Six-term Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) resigned yesterday....

Only took 5 words in the opening paragraph to remind us what party he came from.

And yet MSM outlets like the WP, Ny Times, Chiacgo Tribune etc wonder why they are going bust.
