The WashPost and Cindy's "Potential To Be Consequential"

August 22nd, 2005 3:53 PM

Random thoughts:

1. Another sign the Washington Post REALLY wants Cindy Sheehan to succeed. See this headline from Sunday: "Refusal to See Sheehan Is Second-Guessed: A Decision Characteristic of Bush Has the Potential to Be a Consequential Act." has the potential to be forgotten by almost everybody after a while.

2. The convention of the Asian-American Journalists Association transpired over the weekend in Minneapolis. There is one way to display instead of dispel the idea of a liberal media bias: ooh, ooh, a Saturday Q&A with "legendary comic" Al Franken!

3. I wouldn’t normally pull a food critic over and ticket him for media bias, but WashPost foodie Tom Sietsema has this annoying reference to "a framed photograph of the new restaurant's chef, Peter Chang, alongside a beaming Hu Jintao, the president of China." Do the Post and other media have to present dictators as if they were actually elected presidents of something?
