Media Bias - The Joe Wilson Story

 Investors' Business Daily ran an editorial today asking where's the coverage of Joe Wilson now?

When ex-diplomat Joseph Wilson said President Bush lied, it set off a media stampede. When he turned out to be wrong, the hoofbeats fell silent.
The chart accompanying the story compares coverage of Wilson's initial charges that Bush lied to the coverage of their subsequent debunking by reports from the Senate Intelligence Committee and the British government. The result? The initial story generated 302 stories on the three major networks plus the NY and LA Times and the Washington Post. The revelation that Wilson, in fact, lied, generated 9 stories.

Liberal Media?  What liberal media?

Remember, whatever it takes.
