Interesting Theory On Media Bias

Drudge links to Kurtz, who chats with Janeane Garofalo, who "says she knows why Fox, CNN, MSNBC and "Good Morning America" have booked her to argue against war with Iraq.

"They have actors on so they can marginalize the movement," the stand-up comic says. "It's much easier to toss it off as some bizarre, unintelligent special-interest group. If you're an actor who is pro-war, you're a hero. If you're an actor who's against the war, you're suspect. You must have a weird angle or you just hate George Bush."

OK, that shoots down this theory, which was that at least some top Democrats lack guts and conviction.

Back up link: scroll to I'm for it, with reservations" Or is it, "I'm against it, for now?" Whatever. ". The timestamp above is Friday, January 24, 2003, 6:26 PM.

Oh, my, Kurtz also notes the wreath story.
