Media bias denial once again by, who else, NY Times

It just never ceases to amaze, media bias denial continues to exist from the most biased....ABC,NBC,CBS, MSNBC,NPR,PBS,and most of the large "news"papers" like the NYTimes. Yet the left continues to assert that it's the rightwingers that actually have the upper hand in the bias media category. Relatively speaking, the right's voice in the media is literally microscopic compared to that of the left, but that doesn't stop the liberals from whining and gnashing their teeth over the existence of any information source that has the audacity to question their alleged 'wisdom'.

Today's leftist rant on the subject simply makes the bias point obvious to anyone with any semblance of intellect. On the subject of blogs and their impact in the political sphere:

Conservative Blogs are More Effective
By MICHAEL CROWLEY NY Times

Liberals use the Web to air ideas and vent grievances with one another, often ripping into Democratic leaders. (Hillary Clinton, for instance, is routinely vilified on liberal Web sites for supporting the Iraq war.) Conservatives, by contrast, skillfully use the Web to provide maximum benefit for their issues and candidates. They are generally less interested in examining every side of every issue and more focused on eliciting strong emotional responses from their supporters.
Apparently Mr. Crowley hasn't taken the time to actually read leftist blogs, like DailyKos for example, that are rife with hostility, distortions and unconditional leftist bile against anything remotely near Republican philosophy. Yet Mr. Crowley, as most liberal media do, rolls out the familiar refrain:
But what really makes conservatives effective is their pre-existing media infrastructure, composed of local and national talk-radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, the Fox News Channel and sensationalist say-anything outlets like the Drudge Report - all of which are quick to pass on the latest tidbit from the blogosphere. "One blogger on the Republican side can have a real impact on a race because he can just plug right into the right-wing infrastructure that the Republicans have built," Stoller says.
Apparently the socialists not only hate Rush and Fox News, they appear to be absolutely petrified of the "overwhelming power" they appear to have over the populace. It's simply impossible to understand how they can have all the most powerful media outlets on the left's side, yet they cower at the thought of opposing views being aired by relatively small sources. A complete lack of ideas and insecurity seem to be the appropriate answer to the question; what media bias?

Thanks for making the point Mr. Crowley
