LABSN editor’s note: Here’s another view on the Oregon story and how media is treating it. Having worked for a newspaper for 45 years, I totally agree with the people at FAIR and media’s slanted coverage.

    What surprises me about this is this: we know this! We know the “media”, aka a business catering to the demands of a consumer, favors the pale and the pretty. How many weeks did pretty blond “girl” dominate the news when she didn’t return from Aruba? How often are Latinos of Mexico depicted as immigrants when the work in San Diego yet not Canadians who work in Michigan? We know there is a bias against skin color, yet nothing has changed. Native Americans have been ignored since the 70s even when there’s a legitimate and newsworthy item over land and zoning and federsl grants. How can we know this to be true yet still leave enough demand in the market for the media businesses to continue the bias while at the same time elect a President who is far from pale? Twice!

    When I figure it out I’ll be rich.
