A Short Lesson in Media Bias (Or Something Like It)


Pentagon Confirms Koran Incidents: 'Mishandling' Cases Preceded Guidelines Established in 2003

That's the Wash Post's headline on the latest from the Koran/toilet story. That headline appeared on page 1 of today's paper, above the fold in the top righthand col.

'No Credible Evidence'on Koran Story: Gitmo inmate conceded he was merely repeating a prison rumor"

That's the Wash Times headline covering the same story. It appeared on page A9.

I wouldn't necessarily call this bias on either news org's part, but it's illustrative of very different filters.
