Libelous AIM Blogger Checks In Again
Topic: Accuracy in Media

Accuracy in Media just can't get enough of a blogger who exposed it to legal jeopardy, it seems.

Even though Allie Duzett used an AIM blog to libelously smear Obama administration offical Kevin Jennings as a "pedophile," forcing AIM to delete the post and issue a retraction and quasi-apology, AIM keeps allowing her to blog there. And so we have her second blog post in the past month, this one lecturing on "Media Bias in Layout."

A side note: The picture accompanying Duzett's post is of three DC-area newspapers, the Washington Post (loathed by the likes of AIM for its purported liberal bias), the Express (a commuter-targeted paper published by the Postthat cares more about entertainment news than political bias), and the Washington Examiner (a right-leaning tabloid daily owned by right-wing billionaire Philip Anschutz). We suspect that Duzett is much more concerned about the bias in the Post-related products, even though the Examiner arguably is the more biased paper (and there's no mention at all of the similarly right-wing-biased Washington Times).
