Debate, and discuss, just dont Bore me.
Puh-lease!

There is some skepticism about there being a liberal bent in the Main Stream Media. Especially from those who think John Kerry is not liberal enough. But the story out of Massachusetts will make all but the most extreme leftist realize - there is fire under that smoke.

If you do not know the name of James Fagan, you will soon. He is a lawyer and a lawmaker in Boston. Probably a pretty good one. And he does not like Jessica's Law. Unlike Megan's law, this one deals with pedophiles and mandatory jail time. And Rep Fagan has gone on record as being against it.

Going so far as to state he would "rip apart" any child put on the stand as a witness against a charged child molester. Which is usually the mark of a good lawyer. And the reason most people do not have any respect for them (until they need them).

But read the story. And then show me what party he belongs to.

A fellow lawmaker, Rep Karyn Polito, who supports Jessica's law, spoke out against Rep Fagan's statement. Can you find out which party she belongs to? It is not hard as it is stated right after her name.

But the party of Fagan is never mentioned. And while his stand is principled with respect to his profession, it clearly is not going to be or is a popular one. Yet the media chose to hide his party affiliation.

Sure you can Google it. But how many reading the paper are going to run to the computer and do that? Some yes, most no.

And so the media hides the affiliation when it will taint their heroes.

And people argue that there is no bias. Want to buy a bridge in Brooklyn?

Sad what money does to people. I can understand a lawyers job to defend their clients, but to destroy the lives of the children who are already scared of testifying against a person who could find his way out of jail and try to harm them again, that is heartless, inhumane and down right dispicable. Well duh, he is a lawyer after all.

I dont think it is money. Good lawyers are amoral. Their job is to defend their client to the best of their ability. And sometimes that means they appear to be the lowest scum in the sea.

Indeed. The arguement on the left is that they are not biased enough, not that they are not biased. But I guess they do not see a bias because they are of like mind. Kind of hard to disagree with a sycophant.

1. I think I left an insightful response at Wise Life

2. The media is not one uniform thing. This, for instance, is part of the media. Every channel is part of the media. Media is, of course, a plural word. So there are certainly liberal biases and there are definitely conservative ones as well. The trouble is in pretending that there are no biases and that all good reporting is non-biased. I think this is foolish. It is in human nature, and human rights, to make a judgment. It is also our responsibility to not wholesale swallow anyone's judgment. As a writer and a Catholic and a liberal, my life has me live with and love people who cannot abide each other and cling to some party line either right or left. What we need is more subtlety and a better understanding of each other. What we need is true love in the old Christian sense of the word; that is: caritas. Charity.

Wonder if he'd rip a kid apart on a stand for $5.0 an hour? I don't think so somehow.

Yes. It is not so much the bais, as we all have them and they do color our lives and how we view things. It is the denial of a bias that is aggravating.

Perhaps not him. But some lawyers are in it for the game, and I bet they would. Not everyone can be amoral (not immoral, amoral). But the ones that can do make the best lawyers. After all, someone has to defend the real scum before the court.
