Focus on Cheney shooting not liberal bias

Whining conservatives really need to get past this notion that all the media focus on veep Dick Cheney's accidental shooting of Harry Whittington is because journalists are liberal. The reason for the amount of coverage is simple:

  • People are interested in the story.
  • The vice president of the United States shooting somebody is quite simply a big deal regardless of the circumstances.

For more debunking of the liberal media myth, see the Daou Report.

If anything, the unfortunate impact of the shooting is that it has resulted in important stories Cheney's involvement in authorizing the outing of CIA officer Valerie Plame's identity getting undercovered.
