A conservative media analyst says the mainstream media will once again be demonstrating its bias if it quickly ends its coverage of Harry Reid's controversial race remarks like the White House wants.
The new book 'Game Change' recounts how Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) in 2008 described then presidential candidate Barack Obama as a "light-skinned" black American with "no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one."
Reid issued a statement Saturday, saying: "I deeply regret using such a poor choice of words. I sincerely apologize for offending any and all Americans, especially African-Americans, for my improper comments."
Tim Graham, director of media analysis at the Media Research Center, says when it comes to race, if a Republican had said the same thing Reid did, there would have been a different tone to the press coverage than what people are currently hearing.
