Another note about the media…

Has anyone ever noticed where the bias may lie within a particular news report/article merely by the method in which the reporter describes the government?

If the reporter has a positive bias towards the government they will laud the organization. Conversely, if the reporter has a negative bias towards the government, they will vilify the individual.

For example:
The Liberal government declared today that…
The Harris government announced its policy concerning…

See the difference? It is easier to vilify a person because one can put a face on a target whereas media reporting concerning an unpopular policy by a favoured government is easily distributed across an organization when made faceless.
