The Pro-Limbaugh Echo Chamber
Topic: Newsmax
This is rich: NewsMax -- whose first and, for much of the 24 hours following its announcement, only coverage of the Rush Limbaugh doctor-shopping plea consisted of reprinting the press release from Limbaugh's lawyer -- is complaining about media bias in coverage of the plea deal.

This is even richer: NewsMax's evidence of this, as told in an April 30 article, is a rehash of Tim Graham's NewsBusters post -- which, as we've noted, is peddling its own pro-Limbaugh spin.

NewsMax has also added an Associated Press article on the plea to its site. It stands out by virtue of telling both sides of the story -- something no original NewsMax article on the case has yet to achieve.

P.S.: Memory lane: How did NewsMax, the MRC and the rest of the ConWeb cover the intial news of Limbaugh's legal problems? Its usual blend of slanted coverage, sycophancy and outright lies.
