Not conservative enough for MSM?


The Los AngelesTimes publishes an op—ed on the dearth of women columnists, claiming that women are more liberal than men, and that the media, cowed by conservative criticism, won't publish them. Yep, that is it...the media only likes conservatives to give opinions. Puh—leeze!

This columnist tries to justify her stance about the conservative bias in the media by sampling the disproportionate number of conservative commentators during a single event, the Bush inauguration. The statisticians would have a field day with the use of a single data point to make a case, much less a ceremonial event in which knowledgeable commentators would be those politically close to the President.
No wonder this particular columnist does not get much attention. It has nothing to do with her gender or political orientation.
