Jonah Goldberg on Media on National Review Online

"Even the vocabulary of media coverage is biased. Whenever government passes new legislation, we are told that America has taken a major step “forward.” When it repeals legislation, we moved “backward.” And when Washington doesn’t churn out the latest “reform,” it fails to make “progress.” Indeed, the word “reform” is itself loaded, because it means both to change shape and to improve. But the press doesn’t bother with these distinctions, so every “reform” is portrayed as an improvement."
