Media Bias

A simple comparison:

The resignation of Venice’s mayor made the New York Times the next day. It would be three more days (according to a Lexis-Nexis search) before the loss of the IRS emails made it into the pages of the Times, the paper of record that sets the agenda for all other national media.

Remember, the motto of the New York Times is "All the news that's fit to print." The first line of defense for a biased media is to simply refuse to talk about stories they don't like. If they ignore the story for long enough, sometimes it does go away -- or get pushed off the headlines in favor of another scandal.

They admit to ignoring it openly, because anyone old enough to still be reading a printed version of their paper is old enough to remember Watergate.
