Media bias

Karzai lauds U.S. war on terror - a top story on but unreported on the front page of the Washington Post (online edition,, and It just doesn't fit in with the meta-narratives of the day. The President of Afghanistan praising the U.S. and the current administration? I guess it's not newsworthy if it won't help Kerry get elected.

UPDATE: I checked the print editions of the Washington Post and USA Today. Neither carry the Karzai story on the front page.

Sen. John Kerry "has taken big lead," according "to an L.A. Times poll."

But the Times poll that showed Kerry "beating Bush by 7 points" has created a controversy over whether the poll's sample accurately reflects the population as whole, ROLL CALL reports on Tuesday.

"Not counting independents, the Times' results were calculated on a sample made up of 38 percent Democrats and 25 percent Republicans -- a huge and unheard-of margin," ROLL CALL claims.
