Does the MSM avoid stories that paint the Bush administration in a positive light...

... even if it about critical national security threats and would not reflect well on the MSM? .....mmmmmm... yeah, they would. (via SayAnything)

(NewsMax) - “U.S. terror attacks foiled,” read the headline in England’s Sunday Times. In France, a headline from Agence France Presse proclaimed, “Three Algerians arrested in Italy over plot targeting U.S.”

“My impression is that the major media want to use the NSA story to try and impeach the president,” says Cliff Kincaid, editor of the Accuracy in Media Report published by the grassroots Accuracy in Media organization.

One obvious question media critics are now raising: Did the American media intentionally ignore an important story because it didn’t fit into their agenda of attacking President George Bush for using wiretapping to spy on potential terrorists in the U.S.?

Original story here. And oh yeah... it was discovered via wiretaps. Props to SayAnything for "blowing the whistle." Although if that puts you in the same category as the NYT, we may have to come up with a new term to replace whistleblower. How about "moonbat-puncher?" "Liberal rag flag thrower?" "Old media spiker?"

Any thoughts?
