Yeah, I know, it's barely worth noting the hypocrisy of the Media Research Center, "the leader in documenting, exposing and neutralizing liberal media bias." But this is absurd. Last night, ABC aired the two-hour-long "Peter Jennings Reporting: UFOs -- Seeing is Believing." Jennings' conclusion?
"I believe there are unidentified flying objects, I'm just not sure who's driving."
Scandalous. This is like saying, "There are objects in the sky we can't identify." Media Research, in an effort to slight Jennings, mischaracterized this with the headline "ABC's Peter Jennings Believes in UFOs." Then followed with the lede, "Peter Jennings had plenty of doubts about the existence of WMDs as a justification for war in Iraq, but he believes in UFOs."
God forbid a journalist should show skepticism about the claims of the Bush Administration. And it's not like Jennings' skepticism proved warranted....
The Media Research Center: We're guilty of the same behavior for which we so fondly criticize the "liberal media."
