NewsBusters is still shocked -- shocked! -- that a guy who hosts a show called "Totally Biased" is, uh, totally biased.
In an Oct. 15 post, Matt Vespa complains that W. Kamau Bell of FX’s "Totally Biased" appeared on CNN "to discuss politics and comedy in today’s discourse. However, this self-avowed 'lefty' pulled no punches in slamming Mitt Romney as a candidate whose robotic tendencies forced him 'to act like a human.'"
What, exactly, did Vespa expect from Bell? Or is only allowed to be totally biased only if you're a conservative?
Vespa, meanwhile, did manage to inadvertently solve in part a mystery we found a couple weeks ago. We had noticed that Ryan Robertson's post on "Totally Biased" -- which he also was shocked to discover was totally biased -- had disappeared from NewsBusters without explanation. Vespa links to Robertson's post, which turns out to be currently residing at the Media Research Center's video site, MRCtv.
It still doesn't explain why Robertson's post was retroactively judged to be not ready for prime time -- well, for NewsBusters. But it does live.
