There’s a lot of bias and sensationalism in the mainstream media. Those of us to the right of Mao realize it and deal with the left wing slant. I wanted to take a moment to point out another bias we often see, but rarely mention. I’m surprised to see it coming from Fox News.
The headline is:
Reality TV ‘Preacher’ Charged With Murdering Ex-Porn Star
Maybe Fox News got lazy and used the AP’s headline. I don’t know. But when you look at this sensationalistic headline, you probably think like I did, that some vagabond preacher with a dog God talks through followed holy orders barked by old Spot. The headline is designed to give a negative impression of Christians and Christianity. But wait…
What we get in paragraph two is:
Brian Lee Randone was charged last week with beating and suffocating Felicia Lee at their Monrovia home. (full story)
Their Monrovia home? So, now it is a completely different story. No longer is this a story about an evil Christian slaying a poor, defenseless porn star. It is about a man killing his girlfriend. Heck, I may be wrong, but I believe there are many passages in the Bible condemning “shacking up.” But that’s another post.
My point is simply to draw attention to anti-Christian bias in the media. In general, I like Fox News, but I won’t overlook this just because it’s Fox. I’d have written the same thing if I saw this on MSNBC. The only difference is, I expect these types of things from MSNBC and the other All-Barack-All-The-Time news channels.
