(Related update): Benghazi, IRS, & NSA vs. Bridgegate: Media Bias at its best (er, worst!)

Related update:  The Washington Examiner has an on-target piece today pointing out that relative to the Chicago-style politics of Obama and his sycophants, Christie's bridge-closing antics are almost amateurish:
Consider the government shutdown last fall when the president authorized the needless closing of federal parks and museums in an attempt to smear Republicans. Obama’s team got so carried away that they even tried to close state-run parks in Wisconsin that weren’t dependent on federal funds. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker had to defy federal orders to keep them open.

Original post (1/13/14):  This example is so pronounced, so obvious, that only leftists could ignore it:
And yet, according to Scott Whitlock of the Media Research Center, “In less than 24 hours, the three networks have devoted 17 times more coverage to a traffic scandal involving Chris Christie than they’ve allowed in the last six months to Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service controversy.”
Why? Oh, come on, you know why. Christie belongs to one political party. Obama belongs to the other. You know which ones they belong to. And you know which ones the people at the three networks belong to, too: In surveys going back decades, anywhere from 80% to 90% of Washington’s journalists say they vote Democratic.
And here's a related, wryly funny article from the American Spectator exploring the liberal hypocrisy and willful ignorance underlying most liberal media bias.  Author Clarice Fledman skewers both a liberal college professor neighbor (sorry, I repeat myself) and the NYTimes in the process.  Definitely a fun read.
