What's really wrong with American media

Cap Times columnist Dave Zweifel correctly points out the true bias of the mainstream media, prioritizing sensationlism over more important stories.

"To prove a point, an Internet blog called Think Progress looked closely at the network newscasts the evening of Aug. 17th. That happened to be the day that U.S. District Court Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled that the Bush administration had blatantly violated the U.S. Constitution with its secret NSA domestic communications surveillance program.

It also happened to be the same day the announcement was made that Thailand had in its custody a man who claims to have murdered JonBenet Ramsey.

Newspeople gather at the Los Angeles airport in August to interview passengers from the flight with John Mark Karr, the suspect in the killing of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey.

According to the blog, here's the score:

• NBC - 7 minutes, 39 seconds on the JonBenet story, 27 seconds on the judge's decision.

• CBS - 3 minutes, 23 seconds on the JonBenet story, 25 seconds on the decision.

• ABC - 4 minutes, 3 seconds on JonBenet, 2 minutes on the decision."
