Topic: Accuracy in Media
A Sept. 10 Accuracy in Media press release suggests that the news media is protecting New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin from criticism over his handling of the Hurricane Katrina aftermath because he is black.
"Why is there a media rush to blame Bush and let a black mayor and female governor off the hook in the blame game?" AIM editor Cliff Kincaid is quoted as saying.
A better question would be: Why is AIM so slavishly adhering to Republican talking points in trying to shield the Bush administration from blame for its role in the Katrina aftermath?
