Kagan vs Palin on Book Banning

IUSB Vision recaps a piece from Big Journalism that addresses the blatant media bias in ignoring the fact that Supreme Court nominee Elana Kagan has argued that he government has the power to ban books, while never retracting the false claim that Sarah Palin tried to ban books from the Wasilla library.

Now, take a look at these two collections of headlines. Notice that all the Palin headlines connect Palin directly to the charges of book-banning by discussing her “book banning efforts” even though there were no books banned and no lists made for possible bans. Then look at the Kagan headlines. You’ll notice they all link a Republican to a claim that Kagan wanted to ban books (with one saying that the charge of book-banning is just “talking points”). The way the Kagan headlines are written it makes it seem as if the charge of Kagan’s book-banning is just politics as usual, Republican charges made, just average, everyday Republican attacks. Yet the Palin headlines as much as say that Palin was banning books. With their headlines the Old Media convicted Palin in 2008 — yet today Kagan is nearly absolved of the charge.
