  Bias By Omission: The Top Media Mulligans Of 2005
A Mulligan is where you act like what just happened didn't really happen even though everyone really knows what really happened. The following, in the author's opinion, are the worst Mulligans the collective media took in 2005. They are areas of failure in the media that we are supposed to pretend don't exist. My favorites are:

1. UN

The UN is a failure. While the United States pays the biggest portion of the tab, the UN makes backroom deals with our enemies. In 2005 UN diplomats lounged around on what looks like a 1970s Merv Griffin set by day and double parked their cars by night. "Peacekeepers" of the UN raped those they were sent to help, including children, across the world. In the 10 years since Black Hawk Down, 9 million more Africans have been killed from conflict. The last time that many people died, we held people accountable. What, if not this, is the UN for?

Where are the editorials condemning the current state of the UN? The media was too busy in 2005 trying to scuttle the John Bolton nomination because he might be hard on the UN. Had the media spent the broadcast time and column inches on UN reform that they spent chasing moonbat scandals, they could have made a difference in lives.

7. Free Speech

Free speech got a lot of press in 2005. The freedom of terrorists to talk about terrorism with terrorist friends in terrorist countries. The free speech right to burn a US flag. The free speech right for kids to shoot a hooker for her money. The free speech of Muslims to raise money for islamic jihad.

The free speech that didn't get much media play is the brownshirt tactics used against conservatives speakers, mostly on college campuses. David Horowitz, Bill Kristol, Ann Coulter, all physically attacked with pies. Pat Buchanan hit with a bottle of salad dressing.

Taxpayer-funded institutions that once were open forums for ideas are quickly becoming indoctrination camps of conservative bigotry.

If reporters were physically attacked for the things they said, you would damn well read it in a newspaper.
