We wonder how many people working for WSB radio gasped the first time they heard this promo: “Covering the 2008 presidential campaign- without the liberal media bias! Sean Hannity.”
At the risk of overthinking this, we gotta ask: Does this mean that WSB, a news / talk station with a fairly robust news staff
a– doesn’t consider itself a news media outlet, and that its twice-an-hour newscasts should be disregarded?
b– does consider itself a news media outlet, and is happily admitting its own liberal bias (in spite of the fact that it carries Hannity’s show)?
c– considers its news organization to be a Fox News-style “balance” to the rest of the so-called liberal media?
d– is so craven in its desire to pander to the liberal-media-conspiracy crowd that it is willing to throw the credibility of its own news organization under the bus for the sake of its promotion?
