    Media quickly drops stories critical of the Bush regime

    Media Matters comments on the fact that when it comes to lying, and deceiving, the US media is very poor at fully reporting on the stories that matter:

    On matters ranging from the Harken stock sale to his National Guard record to the Downing Street Memo and nearly everything in between, Bush has escaped the level of media scrutiny one would expect after seeing how the media treated President Clinton. Some of that, as Neal noted, is a result of conservatives' highly effective use of their "echo chamber" to push back on negative stories. But not all of it; there was no "echo chamber" drowning out coverage of Bush's Harken sale during the 2000 campaign. Such an "echo chamber" was unnecessary: the Post and other leading news outlets chose to ignore the story all by themselves.
