More Political Bias from the Associated Press (AP)

Below is a sidebar of the most notable people arrested in a recent roundup of NJ political officials. You may be surprised, or maybe not, but the lack of party affiliation attached to the democrats in the story, yet they remembered to put in the party affiliation on the lone republican in the list. I have blogged about this type of poor reporting before, but i figured it was time to bring it up again.

I wonder if the fairness doctrine that President Obama and Nancy Pelosi want to pass would require party affiliations be attached to EVERY politician in news stories, not just the republicans???

Is there anyone out there who doesn't think there is a political bias in the mainstreem media? I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to leave some coments below explaining your reasons for believing that.

Roundup nets several N.J. notables - USATODAY.com:


Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, 32: Lawyer and former Hoboken City Councilman since 2005, he was elected mayor of Hoboken in June.
Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, 64: Served more than two decades as mayor and a member of the town council, and is a former Secaucus Board of Education member. A Vietnam combat veteran, he is also the president of a family owned trucking company.
• Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini: One of three deputy mayors for New Jersey's second-largest city.
• State Assemblyman Daniel Van Pelt, 44: Elected to the Legislature in 2008, the Republican from Monmouth County is also the mayor of Ocean Township, a post he has held since 1998, and is the Lumberton Township administrator.
