The Reid/Foley MSM Bias Index
Less coverage of Reid would reveal a leftist bias, just as more coverage of Foley would. Reverse it, and we'd be seeing a conservative bias with more Reid coverage and less Foley coverage.
(As you can see at the outset, the index is flawed. Because Reid is still in office and holds a much higher position than Foley ever held, media coverage should tip towards Reid.)
Today's reading: 27 Left
Today -- as Reid's second scandal broke -- Nexis revealed 36 Reid stories and 975 Foley stories; hence an index of 27 left, or 27 times more Foley stories than Reid stories. (AP and other wire stories could have been picked up in multiple papers; this is not measured via Nexis.)
MSM are not even making this one a close call!
