Name That Party!!! « Media Distortions »

Here's an example.

My question is:
What do Democratic/liberal news readers think of this sort of thing?
There is certainly the limitation of anecdotal evidence when we conservatives feel like this happens all the time. The peril of perspective, if you will, that as a conservative, I am more sensitive to the leftward lean on this issue, and thus might not notice when a conservative-leaning publication does the same thing to shield GOP politicians.

So I asked my liberal-leaning co-workers.

They got angry and pretty much refused to answer, despite my repeated insistence that I was asking an honest question in search of an honest answer, and wanting to hear viewpoints different than my own.

One person rather irritatedly said that the number of above-the-fold articles about Clinton shenanigans back in the 90s make my question a non-starter.

I didn't reply, because it was going to start a fight. But that really doesn't seem to be the same thing, to me.

Can any (either) of you, my readers, fill me in on what you think?
1) Do you think there is an effort to bury the affiliation of Democratic Party politicians while highlighting that of Republicans?
2) If so, do you think it is intentional or unintentional?
3) If not, how do you explain/justify the lack of mention of affiliation in the above-linked (and similar) articles?
3) Do you think there is an equal and opposite tendency in conservative-leaning publications?
4) If you aren't a Democratic party voter, what do you think Democratic party voters think about this? Do they not notice, not care, approve, etc?

I am so confused.

I think it might be subconscious, and as the Main Stream Media is by far more liberal than not.

It might also be a defense mechanism. Ignorance is bliss you know.

It probably happens in rigth wing news devices, but I've not noitced it. I've noticed more of a diversionary tactic by comparing Right Wing Crimes to Left Wing ones when Right Wing Crimes happen, but that is limited to the debate shows, not the news ones.

It is an infallible receipt for tuning this boy. I became each night rather a lot more and rather a lot more intrigued in the work, there remained in the case and the bit much range for unique and fanciful treatment.

In the event you'll view that wisely, sir, he begged, you may spot it is the truth. He had solved just about all along that Hammerton should have got to remove this boy before he would escape with that secret.

Internet is a source of information and knowledge. But there are so many sites in net which are nothing but gibberish. But when I visit your site – I felt that – in net there are lots of sites (like this) from where I can get lot of information too. And if I say truly – your site is fantastic. I’ve bookmarked your site in my browser; I hope in future days I’ll get more valuable information from your site.
