Tim Graham's "Bias" Is Just Silly

Here is Media Research Center's Tim Graham:

AP writer Douglass Daniel was enjoying the moderate Republican (and Obama Republican) response to conservatives on the Sunday talk shows.

How does Graham know the AP writer enjoyed anything? The writer never says anything of the sort in the story, and Graham links to no supporting materials. This is part of the reason people in journalism have a hard time taking MRC seriously vs Media Matters, FAIR, and others. MRC is emotion-based, all about imputing feelings and notions to reporters in order to further their mythology about liberal bias. MRC very rarely - if ever - refutes actual facts.

ALSO: Congrats to MRC on their new website. Imitation is surely the sincerest form of flattery.
