You don’t need to be Catholic to be outraged by the following example of horrendous liberal media bias by omission.
We all watched the media remain shamefully silent as the TEA Parties (Taxed Enough Already) - some attended by thousands of Americans - spontaneously erupted all over America to protest the Obama Administration’s taxing and spending policies.
Well, the liberal media are at it again – refusing to report the news they don’t like.
Bill Donahue, President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, told our CNSNews.com “This has done more to divide Catholics than just about anything I’ve seen in recent time.”
He is just one of many, many Americans of all stripes outraged by this decision. But the liberal media would rather report on Obama’s NCAA Tournament bracket than the fact that in less than seventy-two hours more than 50,000 people have signed a petition urging the president of Notre Dame to rescind his invitation to speak.

+ + Katie Couric Positively Bubbly About the Flat Economy
Here we have a glaring example of bias by selection – the media report or don’t report whatever helps advance their liberal agenda.
One day does not a rally make. After weeks of downplaying the tumbling Dow, CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric jumped on news of yesterday’s one-day uptick, gleefully declaring “the stock market soars as the Treasury rolls out a new plan to rescue America’s banks.”
Compare that to her February 10th broadcast. Then, Couric deftly spun away from the Dow’s precipitous 382 drop - failing to mention it in her tease, choosing instead to giddily hype the Obama Administration’s efforts to fix the economy. “Tonight, attacking the economic crisis from every angle: The Treasury Secretary rolls out a new bailout plan, the Senate passes the stimulus package and the President gets a little help selling it.”

Stocks Soar and Plunge, But Couric Always Upbeat About Obama's Efforts
On Monday night, Katie Couric teased the CBS Evening News by trumpeting how “the stock market soars as the Treasury rolls out a new plan to rescue America's banks,” and then leading: “The Treasury put out the details today of a plan to rescue America's banks and Wall Street responded with two thumbs up and a triple-digit rally.” Six weeks ago, however, when the Dow plunged 382 points in reaction to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's vague plan for banks, Couric didn't mention the stock market in her tease as she instead giddily announced:COURIC: Tonight, attacking the economic crisis from every angle: The Treasury Secretary rolls out a new bailout plan, the Senate passes the stimulus package and the President gets a little help selling it.In setting up the lead story, on the Tuesday, February 10 newscast, Couric did get to Wall Street's negative reaction to Geithner's plan, but she played it as less important than the Obama administration's efforts to fix the economy:
MAN AT FT. MYERS EVENT WITH OBAMA: Oh, it's such a blessing to see you Mr. President! Thank you for taking time out of your day!
Good evening, everyone. From President Obama on down, the U.S. government took on this country's growing financial crisis today. The President hit the road again to sell his stimulus package as the Senate was approving a version that cost $19 billion more than what the House passed last week. And the Treasury announced a new financial rescue plan; this one would spend as much as $2 trillion to get lenders lending again. But it got a vote of no confidence on Wall Street, where the Dow plunged nearly 400 points.... [Go read the rest of this one here]
Pretty sad state of affairs when the media that can't seem to report the facts, becomes the story. Media bias? Not so much, riiiiiiiiight?
