Looking at the high gas prices at the pumps the other day, I had the usual and obvious thought, “When Bush was president the press blamed it all on him, and now that Obama’s president you hear the sound of MSM crickets chirping.”
Then it occurred to me that one simple way into a discussion with a liberal about how incredibly biased the media is would be to point that fact out. I’m not so sure even most liberals could deny it. They might pooh-pooh its significance, but they might have trouble saying it hasn’t happened, or explaining it as anything other than bias.
And then you could point out that if the media would do that, how could you trust them to tell the truth about other things? What else are they distorting or omitting through bias?
It might be worth a try, anyway.
With leftists, don’t even try.
