Liberal Media Bias: Sins of Omissions

When the media reports with Bias, it doesn't report things incorrectly, but it instead uses sins of omission. For example the majority of the money of the Bush Tax Cuts benefitted the rich, and this was widely reported in the media. However the Bush Tax Cuts actually make the tax code more progressive because it lowers the tax rates for poor and middle class and results in the rich paying a higher percentage of taxes. That second fact was left out of a lot of media reporting.
