Deep Throat and Media Bias

Deep Throat, the code name for the source of Woodward and Bernstein's critical information about Watergate, has been revealed and confirmed. Deep Throat is Mark Felt, former deputy director of the FBI.

The mainstream media (MSM) treats Felt as a hero. But, the MSM treated Linda Tripp, who came forward with the information on Monica Lewinsky, as someone who betrayed a trust. The MSM also geve hero status to Susan McDougal, who refused to testify about Bill Clinton and Whitewater, for her courageous stand against independent prosecutor Ken Starr.

Like the MSM, I do not condone Nixon's misdeeds and am glad they were revealed. Unlike the MSM, I do not condone Clinton's misdeeds and am glad some of them were revealed. Unlike the MSM, I do not admire Susan McDougal's refusal to give testimony that would have hurt Clinton. The bias of the MSM becomes clearer every day.

I completely agree. The media even treated Pat Buchanan rudely (he was even misquoted as saying that Deepthroat was a "traitor"). It just depends on the perspective of the writer and his/her affiliation with organizations.
