I guess as soon as Drudge & Breitbart fire their irresponsible hacks. Oh wait - they're conservative so it's OK. Got it...Kettle meet pot... Source: http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/07/dark-knight-rises-theater-shooting-idiocy-begins

Brian2344, Ok you must be Brian Ross, you are an idiot, an irresponsible idiot!

You wish liberals had some people like Breitbart and Drudge, libs are all hacks, every last one!

OUCK FBAMA and that ingrate of a wife he has!

Apple, meet orange.

First, the article you link only mentions a tweet from Drudge (nothing about Breitbart.com) and the ABC report. A tweet isn't exactly the same degree as an on-air primetime newscast (although more people probably follow Drudge tweets than ABC News). In any case, feel free to post your own article here about how the Drudge Report needs to fire Drudge.

Perhaps you didn't read the article. From said article, capitalization is mine:

"Here's Matt Drudge tweeting a thinly sourced Joel Pollak report at BREITBART.COM."

Here is the actual post from Breitbart.com - yep no partisan sensationalism there!

Here is Drudge's "handiwork":

Have a fruit! As there's ALL this clamoring about ABC (and I do agree that it was wrong & irresponsible) then the same amount of noise should be directed at Drudge & Breitbart. Howeve since they're on the "right", it's OK. Different rules depending upon which way you lean, you know?

My point is that it is a matter of degree. You have a tweet from Drudge vs. a "major" media broadcast. Also, Drudge's comment may have been in response to Ross' absolutely reprehensible and irresponsible "reporting". Check your timelines.

I try not to spend too much time complaining about media bias, mostly because it doesn’t do any good.

But I have had a couple of posts about the topic, usually when there’s a hopelessly outrageous example on an issue I care about.
