Counterspin - March 24, 2006

George Bush received high marks from many media commentators for his March 21st news conference performance. But journalists largely failed to scrutinize the accuracy of several of his statements. Phyllis Bennis of the Institute for Policy Studies will join us to have a look at the substance of the president's remarks.

Also on the show: The story about media all being dyed-in-the-wool liberals is full of holes, of course; but big outlets like the New York Times have traditionally taken the 'liberal' line, which is also the majority popular line, in favor of the right to abortion. Editorially, they still do. So what explains the paper's op-ed page? We'll hear that surprising story from Garance Franke-Ruta, senior editor at The American Prospect.
