Inspired by Minion’s brilliant Does your candidate stink? (complete with nose-holding graph), I was inspired to try to turn Google to my own nefarious research purpose.
Since the cracks in the wall of media silence on Kerry’s Cambodia winter wonderland are starting to spread (see my other two posts from this morning), I thought I’d see whether the erstwhile “Paper of Record”, the NY Times, had discovered there was a story here yet.
The total count of mentions of “Christmas” and “Cambodia”? Zero. Well, what about “Swift Vets for Truth”? Surely they’re “in the news”? Total count: Zero.
By way of comparison, let’s check out “Bush National Guard Service” at the Gray Lady. Total count: 491.
Nope, nothing to see here. Move along, that’s right. We’ll let you know when there’s something to report. Pay no attention to the men behind the curtain (of media blackout). Bias? What bias?
