Media Bias, Case No. 42,719

Here's yet another example of extreme media bias, this from NBC Los Angeles on the California Supreme Court's ruling upholding Prop 8 (which stated, "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.").

At the end of the article, they say "And now for everyone's official statements," which is followed by 14 quotes by elected officials, activists and organizations. Only three are in favor of Prop 8 and the court's ruling, while an astonishing eleven are in opposition to both. This is from an initiative that was passed with 52% of the vote.

Shameful. Not even an attempt from the "equality" proponents to give some more equal coverage.

That's what we can expect if we get the "fairness doctrine".

The notion that both sides of an issue warrant equal or balanced coverage is in error.

Slavery is wrong, and including commentaries by contemporary pro-slave or pro-lynching pundits in no way makes an article about slavery or lynching more accurate or honest.

Discrimination based on sexual preference will be seen as hateful and inhumane in the next five to twenty years.

Let's err on the side of human kindness, please.
