I don’t like getting caught up in what is and what isn’t “bias”. For one, I don’t like the partisan sniping. And two, I think that journalists think they are being honest. So whatch’a gonna do?
So, I don’t usually put much merit in the idea that Fox is biased right [no shit] or that MSNBC is biased Left [ again, no shit ]. But what I DO find interesting is where news is buried.
Check this out:
So, there is some news that I think has significant bearing on the current “news of the day”. So, I went to see if the most neutral news outlet I can think of carried it. This is what I see above the fold.
THIS is what I talk about when I, personally, mention media bias. All we are talkin’ about is the debt. And is there any news to report on the US making, or losing, money on it’s investments?

The U.S. and Canadian governments exited their investments in Chrysler Group LLC Thursday, allowing Italy’s Fiat SpA to become the automaker’s majority stakeholder.
Fiat now owns 53.5 percent of Chrysler on a fully diluted basis, the Auburn Hills, Michigan-based company said in a regulatory filing Thursday. Fiat is on track to hold 58.5 percent of Chrysler by the end of the year.
So, here is the story. The US government exited their investments. Not until paragraph FIFTEEN does the article mention this:
But the United States is likely to lose $1.3 billion that it had lent to the old Chrysler, Treasury said in a statement on Thursday.
Nothing on Reuters.com and not one word of the loss until the very last sentence in the article. This is a Leftist’s world and we’re just trying to get out.
