Boo’s become news.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on August 17th, 2007

Carl Rove’s recent announcement that he was leaving his job at the White House drew cheers in the newsroom of the Seattle Times newspaper. The cheers became news when a memo written by executive editor Dave Boardman, admonishing the staff to refrain from such open partisanship, surfaced in a national story.

Now there are boo’s in the news. Joe Scarborough, on MSNBC, referenced the Seattle story and recalled his first day in the MSNBC newsroom when frequent loud boo’s broke out during the 2003 Presidential State of the Union speech. Bush was boo’d in the newsroom. Here’s how Joe tells it.

Unless, you’re reading an editorial opinion, you might expect to get even-handed coverage of news events. It’s not news that there’s bias in the press. Do you think it colors news reporting? Could it have an effect on the news we get, our opinions of politicans, the outcome of elections?
