One-Source Wonders
Topic: The ConWeb
Is the mainstream media picking up bad things from the ConWeb?

WorldNetDaily and NewsMax, with reporters such as Jon Dougherty, have been specialists in running articles that feature only a single source advancing a particular (usually conservative) point of view. But as Atrios notes, both the Washington Post and Roll Call agreed to publish articles about Republican policies or decisions that didn't contain reaction to those decisions as a condition of publication established by Republicans.

When the ConWeb runs one-sided articles (usually copied from press releases issued by conservatives), rarely do they follow up the article to report the other side. Heck, it took a week to allow Paul Begala to deny CNS' claim that Begala said that Republicans were trying to kill him.
