Double Standard

Remember the Mark Foley sex scandal? He was the Republican Congressman who had inappropriate relationships with male pages. His party affiliation (Republican) was told to us in the very first paragraph in just about every article, for example here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. These were articles all in a row when I googled "congressman Foley sex scandal."

How does the democrat run media report it when a fellow liberal does the exact same thing? You don't find out his party affiliation (democrat) until the 16th paragraph.

You have that right! If it's a republican they jump right on it. If it's a democrat they downplay it all they can.

Come to think of it Hash, there is no equation there. The republicans do not support terrorists, therefore you cannot equate the two.

Oh, the Rethugs don't support terrorism?

How about Prescott Bush?

What about the Carlyle Group, Saudi Arabia, Israeli settlements, Serbia, Chile, the Mariana Islands, the Russian Federation, Nicaragua.

The only difference between the left and the right in regards to child molestation is that when a liberal does it, it's an aberration.

When a so-called conservative does it, it's just par for the course..
