Mr. SMITH of Texas. Mr. Speaker, former CBS producer Greg Kandra recently highlighted the continued existence of the national liberal media's bias.
As a result of the national media's use of selectively edited clips to push its liberal agenda, he stated that he has ``grown weary trying to defend'' the national media. Kandra declared that he cannot and will not defend his former colleagues against claims of liberal bias.
He writes that the national media has ``successfully eroded any confidence'' the public has in the news. And that the national media has ``done a [great] job of diminishing what was once a great profession and undermining one of the underpinnings of democracy, a free press.''
According to a recent Gallup poll, Americans' confidence in the national media is at an all time low. Americans' lack of confidence in the national media will continue until the national media provides the American people with fair and objective coverage of the news.
