More Media Bias Silly federal

More Media Bias
Silly federal regulations could force little Albuquerque to spend 150 million dollars it can ill afford on water treatment improvements it doesn’t need.

Does the LA Times headline this sad mess with “Albuquerque In Deep Water” or even “City Fights Feds”? Nope.

Try: “Albuquerque Battles to Leave Arsenic in the Water.”

I’ll leave fighting the EPA’s junk science to bloggers better suited to the subject, but I think the bias in the headline is obvious. Even worse, reporter Elizabeth Shogren describes the town as a “desert metropolis.” Not really apt for a city with under 750,000 people in the entire metro area.

Elizabeth, the Goliath in this case is the EPA, not the “metropolis” of Albuquerque.
