Conservatives don't believe in equal time

"Liberal" media? What "liberal" media? Scarborough Country caved to a right-wing media critic who objected to an opposing viewpoint being put on the show. The wingnut talking head? Media Research Center's Brent Bozell. The opposing view? Larry Johnson, former counterterrorism expert for the CIA and State Dept. and frequent contributor for several networks, including Fox News. Here's what Larry had to say on Booman Tribune about the whole incident:
I was contacted by an MSNBC booker late today (Monday, 28 November) who asked if I would appear tonight on the Joe Scarborough Show to discuss whether or not the media are hypocrites when it comes to covering the leak to the Washington Post about the CIA secret prisons. The booker told me that Brent Bozell, head of the Media Research Center, was accusing the media of focusing too much on the leak of Valerie Plame and not enough on the leak about the prisons. [...]

Apparently, Mr. Bozell is a coward. He told MSNBC he would not appear if I was on the show, even if they scheduled me before or after him. He couldn't handle a man-to-man debate. Typical conservative coward. I think the term is "Girly Man". Tough talker when he is alone but unable to handle an informed debate. What is really sad is the MSNBC is caving into Bozell, rather than insisting that its audience hear both sides of an issue.

I'm sure Michelle Malkin will find some sort of "liberal" bias conspiracy at work.
