My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Story Within a Story 

The lead is interesting enough:

The president of the European Union on Wednesday ripped the Obama administration's economic policies, calling its deficit spending and bank bailouts "a road to hell."

That's a little--no, it's a LOT--like having Jake Cutler criticize you for a public relations screw-up based on your own arrogance and overestimation of your standing in a community.

Oh, did I let my opinion trickle through there?

But that's not the real story here. Look closely at the story, in particular the top part of it.

Yep. Page A12.


Can you, in a million years, imagine a circumstance where a foreign leader described a Bush administration policy as "a road to Hell," and it wouldn't be front page above the fold?!? It would lead every nightly news broadcast, and experts would be brought in to defend the EU Prez's position.

But with Obama as the target of the slam, it gets page A12, and nary a mention on the evening news.

Bias? what bias?
