What is News, and What Isn't

Just saw this at Instapundit. 

An excellent post from the Powerline blog about how the left wing media shapes the news, just by eliminating things that would embarras them and their party and by completely exaggerating their coverage and framing of "stories" of minute importance that are meant to make conservatives, Jews, Israelis and other non-lefties look bad.

"This is how the liberal media try to shape your opinions: they tell you stories that they think make liberals look good and conservatives look bad, and they conceal from you the news that doesn’t fit their agenda."
