Mark Halperin Sucks Up To The Conservative Media

Mark Halperin, ABC Political Director, once again shows that he is not an unbiased source. As I’ve previously discussed, Halperin often uses The Note to spread right wing talking points while pretending they are a nonbiased interpretation of the day’s political news. Halperin has appreared on The O’Reilly Factor showing where he actually stands:

If I were a conservative, I understand why I would feel suspicious that I was not going to get a fair break at the end of an election. We’ve got to make sure we do better, so conservatives don’t have to be concerned about that. It’s just – it’s not fair.

As Think Progress points out, this came just after he wrote claiming that the media is being too liberal in its coverage of this year’s elections. Several souces, such as Media Matters, regularly refute the claims of liberal bias and that is far beyond the scope of a single blog post. (Media Matters also has more quotes from Halperin, including in an interview with Sean Hannity.) What is worth repeating is that when Mark Halperin speaks, do not take it as the word of an objective journalist.

    It’s been suggested that I should have ended the title of this post after the third word. I apologize for the extraneous verbiage in the title.

    I don’t know. I like seeing the words “Conservative Media” together like that in bold-faced, headline type. 😉
