Analysis of media issues, politics and current events.
Not so much as “I told you so” but more as a point to illustrate what I said in my previous post on Sean Hannity’s special “Behind the Bias: This History of the Liberal Media.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper seems to take exception with one portrayal shown in Hannity’s special and exposes it as selective editing.
Media website, Mediaite reports and shows that Cooper refutes an clip from Hannity’s program that seem to show Cooper talking about and confirming a Bush administration smear campaign underway in the Valerie Plame affair.
By showing the full clip on his how, Cooper shows that he was only quoting someone else’s accusations. And as I mentioned in my post, this seems to be an example of the show’s selective editing that to took clip out of context.
And even the Mediaite author seems to agree with the over all assessment of Hannity’s special (though conveyed through sarcasm,
“God, it’s almost as if the documentary exposing liberal bias was put together with some kind of a…ah, what’s the word I’m looking for? You know, it’s like “prejudice” but not really. I think it starts with a “B.” Damn! What is it?”
