Montana Politics The Media

Media Bias: An Insightful Analysis from A New Conservative Montana Blog

So, the media’s biased, right? Left-wing propaganda all the time. The only thing that saves us is the independent voice of thinkers like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, and the media critics at Montana’s newest conservative blog, What’s Right in Montana.

The word in question? Disavow. You know, the word that means ” To disclaim knowledge of, responsibility for, or association with”

Trotsky on a Tricycle! How dare a newspaper get away with this kind of propaganda!

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
