Pro-War Bias on MSNBC Web Site

Posted by libhom Saturday, September 15, 2007

Their article on today's massive anti-war protests in DC had the following headline:

War protesters, supporters converge in D.C.
Demonstrators calling for impeachment meet counterprotesters in rallies

Inside the article, MSNBC admitted that "there appeared to be tens of thousands of people in attendance" at the anti-war rally, while there were only "nearly 1,000 counterprotesters."

Yet, both got equal billing in the headline. Someone who sees the headline and does not read the entire article will get the impression that pro-war sentiments were expressed in a comparable fashion to anti-war sentiments. This is typical of how the corporate media overplays support for the war in Iraq.

Corporate interests and ideology trump accuracy most of the time these days.

  2. Who 'protests' for a policty that is being carried out? And who reports it as equal to actual protest? Ok enough rhetorical questions, just imperial corporate shilling and a very powerful right wing noise machine.
