My previous post regarding the California Supreme Court’s decision to hear cases regarding the legality of Prop 8 contains the text of a Sacramento Bee article. Something seemed a bit off balance about the article to me, so I did a little math and found:
Total words in article
Words that relay facts, without opinion or editorial (the “important” words)
Words that present the opinion or reaction of the anti-gay marriage community.
Words that present the opinion of reaction of the pro-gay marriage community.
Um, what the hell? Gay marriage opponents got more press space than the facts, and roughly 5 times the space of Prop 8 opponents? This is journalism?
