The Best Responses to Politico’s Absurd Media Bias Article

Politico recently published a piece accusing the New York Times and Washington Post of being “blatantly” biased in favor of Barack Obama. The piece was odd/wrong/ridiculous on a number of levels, and the masses have begun to make their opinions known to Politico.

Below are excerpts from some of the best responses. Enjoy the righteous anger.

Devin Gordon, GQ:

Politico published this story the day after one of its targets, The Times, published an astonishing expose about President Obama’s personal oversight of a terrorist ‘kill list.’ In what universe is that not vetting? Part of Politico’s argument is that these two media outlets have spent far too much time on the silly stuff about the Romney family, chasing stories that have no bearing on candidate Mitt’s qualifications for office — but then, in the same breath, they ignore the Times when it focuses, exceptionally, relentlessly, on the truly important stuff like Obama’s record on national security.

Devin Gordon Set To Replace Tacy At Newsweek.com

gordon.pngLast week, we reported exclusively that recently appointed Newsweek.com editorial director Will Tacy had left the publication. Yesterday, Newsweek editor Jon Meacham announced Tacy’s replacement: senior editor Devin Gordon.

Gordon had helped reimagine the magazine’s “Scope” section for its relaunch a few weeks ago and led Newsweek‘s front of book coverage, and his important position will not remain empty for long. National affairs editor Bret Begun has already agreed to step into Gordon’s shoes, Meachum said. Begun has plenty of FOB experience, previously serving as deputy editor of the magazine’s “Periscope” section, according to his Newsweek.com bio.

baharo.pngIn other Newsweek news, the publication is desperately trying to publicize the disappearance of foreign correspondent Maziar Bahari in Tehran. According to the magazine, Bahari (right) was “detained without charge by Iranian authorities” on Sunday and hasn’t been heard from since. A Newsweek spokesperson said this morning that there is still no update on his whereabouts.

Bahari, a Canadian citizen, has been living and working in Iran for the past decade, Newsweek said, adding that the pub “strongly condemns this unwarranted detention, and calls upon the Iranian government to release him immediately.”

Our thoughts and prayers go to Bahari and his family, and best wishes to Gordon and Begun, taking on new challenges amid a dangerous time for journalists.
