Dogs That Don’t Bark

There’s a buzz going around a Pew study reporting that the Republicans are getting better press than the President, and how that the shows that the MSM is unbiased.

Uh Huh.

Karl has some comments posted in the Green Room. He concludes:

Pew won’t reflect Big Media’s systemic downplaying of our exploding national debt and pretending that Obama has a serious plan to deal with it. The list goes on and on. When the watchdogs don’t bark, Pew won’t hear — but that’s not evidence of media objectivity.

As Sherlock Holmes noted:

Before deciding that question I had grasped the significance of the silence of the dog, for one true inference invariably suggests others. The Simpson incident had shown me that a dog was kept in the stables, and yet, though some one had been in and had fetched out a horse, he had not barked enough to arouse the two lads in the loft. Obviously the midnight visitor was some one whom the dog knew well.

A good dog does not bark at his master.
