If you thought Christmas Week would be a slow week for media bias you were wrong. Stupidity doesn’t take a holiday.  This week we learned that an African-American drummer can be an anti-Asian bigot, that Democratic Party screw-ups were caused by GOP racism, and terrorist supporting truthers make lousy character witnesses.

We learned that next year’s movies will have a religious theme, but I doubt it will include the claim that Jesus was a Palestinian. And speaking of religion, Think Progress celebrated Christmas by scaring people with lies.  A corrupt politician called the Tea Party heartless and the WWE finally answered the question about the color of Santa Claus’ skin.
See it was a busy week for Media Stupidity and I still haven’t mentioned the fact that Carlos Danger is back.

Below are the stupid media bias tricks hinted at above plus many more
from the last seven days. Headlines are linked to the full article (and
will open a new window). When it is a broadcast story the video/audio
will also be found at the end of the link.

So say click on the links below and read about the stupid bias tricks of the last week:
