CNS Loath To Admit Its Boss Is Conservative
Topic: CNSNews.com

CNSNews.com is usually good about labeling the political leanings of the subjects it writes about -- except when the subject is the organization that owns it, the Media Research Center.

A Feb. 7 CNS article by Christopher Goins on the MRC's report "preserving Ronald Reagan's legacy and highlighting the liberal media’s resentment and distortion of it" did not describe the report as coming from a conservative viewpoint, though it used "liberal" as a descriptor six times, including three mentions of "liberal media."

Another Feb. 7 article by Pete Winn on the MRC's hyperbolic reaction to AOL's purchase of the Huffington Post did describe MRC chief Brent Bozell as "conservative," though it described the Huffington Post as "liberal" three separate times.

Needless to say, neither article provided any opposing viewpoint to the MRC's. Also there was no mention of whether Bozell's assailing of organizations that "target and obscenely smear" their political enemies and, thus, do not deserve to be called "news" will results in the word "news" being lopped from CNS' name.
