Andrew Breitbart understood that our real battle — our real enemy — wan’t just Liberals. But rather the Democrat Media Complex (which, yes, is comprised almost entirely of Leftists) that spins and carries water for the political Left.
And he implored members of Conservatives in the new media to call them out — by name and organization — every time we see examples of their bias. Which if often illustrated by not so much as what they cover, but what they don’t. Stories damaging to the political left that are ignored all together, or reported in such a way as to make the Left look the least culpable and — if possible — find a way to pin it on Conservatives.
Even is solidly red Texas, we can’t escape the spin and bias of far left journalists and media organizations. Like Morgan Smith at the Texas Tribune.
All you have to do is read her Leftist spin on yesterday’s Capitol Education Rally at the state Capitol. Nearly 800 pages, almost entirely devoted to parroting the anti-school choice, pro-spend-more-money, pro-teachers union education lobby’s talking points. Ms. Smith does a good job of pointing out all of the various organizations and groups who showed up in Downtown yesterday. She even found the “handful of school choice advocates” from Texas Public Policy Foundation who were present on Saturday.
So…what Liberal bias am I referring to then?
Well, there’s one group who was better represented on Saturday than any other single group. As Michael Quinn Sullivan tweeted:
International Socialists out in force at today’s anti-student rally in Austin. Any guesses how many TV/newspaper reports will mention?

Yep. Lots and lots of socialists in the crowd. Just as their are in our education system (led by our nation’s socialist Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan).
Nope, not a mention from the Democrat Media Complex. To include the far-left Texas Tribune.
Any guesses as to why Ms. Smith would fail to mention all the socialist groups in attendance on Saturday?
UPDATE — Will Franklin has pictures and charts.
