I am sure that I am not the only Montana blogger to have asked this question, but when reading the daily tripe over at What’s Right in Montana, a new reader makes this comment:
Great work on this blog. Dems own the press in Montana, so it’s refreshing to have a place to see a different perspective.
Thanks for your work. I know I’ll be a regular reader, and I’m going to tell everyone I know too. I’m sick of people thinking Montana has turned liberal.
I realize that this point appears in every set of talking points that the right puts out, but can someone explain to me how the Montana media is “owned” by the Democrats? If that is the case, why can’t I pick up a Montana newspaper without any article about Burns without having to read Jason Klindt’s talking points repeated without an once of critical analysis (like…if it’s the truth)?
Unfortunately, the only accusations I have seen are simple ignorance. When Don originally found the new What’s Right blog, he noted that their version of bias only exists for those that don’t own a dictionary.
This is a real question for those on the right. PLEASE explain this one to me.
