Sam Levin's coverage of Mitt Romney's recent rally in Jefferson County included a post featuring ten rally-goers weighing in on Romney's chances of victory in November. The conversation spurred by the latter wound up raising the question of the media's supposed liberal bias -- an assertion one reader doesn't buy.

In what world in the news liberally biased? Is the top-rated cable news network not Fox? Is KOA not the biggest talk radio station in the region? Is there not a Drudge Report for every Huffington Post?

It just goes to show that if you tell a stupid person a lie enough times, he'll eventually repeat it as gospel.
