NewsBusters Likes 'Tough' Biden Interview, But Cried Foul At Couric's Palin Interview
Topic: NewsBusters

An Oct. 26 NewsBusters post by Noel Sheppard begins, "The leftwing blogosphere went into full panic mode Saturday as a result of a tough interview Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden had with a Florida anchorwoman two days ago," adding that the anchor "gave Biden quite a grilling Thursday."

But a month ago,his MRC and NewsBusters buddies were in a similar "panic mode" over Katie Couric's interview with Sarah Palin, specifically Couric's non-difficult question asking Palin what newspapers and magazines she read:

  • Tim Graham declared that it "was designed as a 'gotcha' question to underline Palin's lack of worldly sophistication."
  • Brent Baker insisted that Couric had "patronizingly challenge[d] & lecture[d]" in the interviews, and the newspaper question was a effort by Couric to paint Palin as "an ill-informed dolt."

Then again, any "tough" questioning of a conservative is seen by Sheppard, Graham and Baker as "liberal media bias."
