In his weekly appearance on the One America News Network's "The Daily Ledger," MRC VP of Business and Culture Dan Gainor discussed three of the top media bias stories from this week: the media's refusal to report on attacks on Jewish synagogues in France, the media's refusal to mention that only 2.3 percent of the population identifies as LGBT, and the dramatic rise in the use of the term "extreme weather" by ABC, CBS and NBC news broadcasts following the release of Al Gore's 2006 film "An Inconvenient Truth."
"The Daily Ledger" host Graham Ledger noted that the media "ignores things that it doesn't like, but, of course, the media covers ad nauseum what it loves."
