NewsBusters Deletes Post Complaining That 'Totally Biased' Is Totally Biased
Topic: NewsBusters

A Sept. 24 NewsBusters post by Ryan Robertson details his shocking discovery that a show on FX called "Totally Biased" is, well, totally biased. Robertson huffed that the show is hosted by "little known comedian W. Kamau Bell," complained that the show's name is a "fitting choice" given itsd "scathing political commentary of the right," and concluded by lamenting that "Despite mediocre ratings and mixed reviews, Totally Biased will reportedly come back from hiatus on Oct. 11 with another 7 episodes -- just as election season is truly heating up." Yeah, we wouldn't want a show featuring political commentary not to run during election season, would we?

Strangely, though, Robertson's post has been deleted from the NewsBusters website. (The Google cache of the post is here for now.) No explanation has been publicly offered by NewsBusters regarding its deletion.

Why was it deleted? It can't be that NewsBusters has suddenly developed standards -- this is, after all, the website that has the error-prone, cliche-ridden Noel Sheppard as an editor.

Or did the NewsBusters powers that be conclude that "Totally Biased" is totally biased was just too obvious an observation, even for the research-challenged MRC? The world may never know.
