Palin Book "Fact Check" Demonstrates Why Newspapers Are Dying

In their ongoing quest (along with the rest of the MSM) to destroy any conservative who dares to question libaralism, the Fish Wrapper makes a front page link of an AP story that supposedly "fact checks" Sarah Palin's new book "Going Rogue" (you know, the book that was so popular, it was #1 on Amazon.com before it was even available).

WASHINGTON -- Sarah Palin's new book reprises familiar claims from the 2008 presidential campaign that haven't become any truer over time.

Ignoring substantial parts of her record if not the facts, she depicts herself as a frugal traveler on the taxpayer's dime, a reformer without ties to powerful interests and a politician roguishly indifferent to high ambition.

Palin goes adrift, at times, on more contemporary issues, too. She criticizes President Barack Obama for pushing through a bailout package that actually was achieved by his Republican predecessor George W. Bush -- a package she seemed to support at the time.

Canada Considering Moving Away From Socialized Health Care - Fish Wrapper Will Ignore

It's interesting that as Obama and the Dems push towards government control in every area of America that they can justify (currently health care), other countries are moving away from it.  As an example Canada has had socialized medicine for years, and it is the type of single-payer system we would have under Obamunism.  However, as reported by the AP, Canada is considering moving back to private health care delivery.  Why?  Because the system as it is is imploding:

 
SASKATOON — The incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association says this country's health-care system is sick and doctors need to develop a plan to cure it.
"We know that there must be change," she said. "We're all running flat out, we're all just trying to stay ahead of the immediate day-to-day demands."

Fish Wrapper and AP Twist Facts To "Debunk" Giuliani's Cancer Statistics

On page A2 in the Saturday edition of the Fish Wrapper, they reprint an AP article that attempts to rebut cancer survivability statistics quoted by Rudy Giuliani in campaign ads.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Rudy Giuliani is defending the survival rates he quotes when talking about his prostate cancer, amid criticism he understates the figures and makes unfair comparisons.

In a radio ad running this week in New Hampshire, Giuliani says: "My chance of surviving prostate cancer, and thank God I was cured of it, in the United States: 82 percent. My chances of surviving prostate cancer in England: only 44 percent under socialized medicine."

Fish Wrapper Buries Negative Story On Biofuel

Sometimes the bias displayed by the Fish Wrapper is a little more subtle than other times, but it's still there. Today, for instance, they bury a negative story about the down side of biofuel in a side column on page A6.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — A U.N. expert on Friday called the growing practice of converting food crops into biofuel "a crime against humanity," saying it is creating food shortages and
price jumps that cause millions of poor people to go hungry.

Bias On Display In Favor Of Murdering Children

On Wednesday (4/18/07) the Supreme Court upheld the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 by a vote of 5-4. This law bans a very gruesome form of late term abortion where, as described to the judge in National Abortion Federation vs. Ashcroft

the physician grasps the fetus's lower extremity with fingers or forceps and pulls the fetus through the cervix and vagina until its head is lodged in the cervical opening. At this point, the fetus's arms and legs have been delivered outside the uterus while the fetus is still alive. With the fetus's head lodged in the cervix, the physician punctures the skull with scissors or crushes the head with forceps.... The physician then drains the fetus's skull by suction, or by using a finger, and the skull collapses.

How To Show Bias Against Opposing Views On Global Warming Hype

Most of the time, the Fish Wrapper's (and Associated Press') bias is pretty obvious, but sometimes it's a little more subtle. A perfect example of this subtle bias is an AP article about William Gray, one of our leading hurricane forecasters. Gray made some comments about Al Gore and his global warming hype:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A top hurricane forecaster called Al Gore "a gross alarmist" Friday for making an Oscar-winning documentary about global warming.

Dead Fish Wrapper Ignores Biden Remarks Because He's A Democrat

True to form, the Fish Wrapper, continues it's history of ignoring comments made by a liberal Democrat that would be front page news if they were made by a Republican.

The comments this time were made by Joe Biden, Democrat senator from Delaware. In an interview with the New Yorker magazine, he said

"You got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

This was the same man, who said last June:

Dead Fish Wrapper Plays Up Anti-War Protests, Hides Much Larger Pro-Life Rally

So here's a question for you; you're a newspaper, and there are two national events to be covered. First, an annual conservative march that has hundreds of thousands of people, and second, a liberal march that draws only in the tens of thousands of people. How do you cover them? Do you a) give the one with the much larger attendance more coverage, or do you b) give the smaller one much more space because it's a liberal event?

Knowing the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper, this one isn't hard to figure out; the answer is b.

On January 22nd, the annual March For Life took place on the mall in Washington, D.C. The protesters numbered in the hundreds of thousands. According to LifeNews:
