Author David Kuo says that his book, which claims the Bush White House has regularly "dissed" evangelical Christians, was contracted to be published in 2007...not 2006.
His publisher rushed the book -- which calls on Christians to remove themselves from the political process -- into print before the election.
The publisher? Simon and Schuster, owned by the same parent company that owns CBS, which airs 60 Minutes. You do the math.
NewsBusters also mentions that although 60 Minutes portrayed Kuo as a conservative, he has previously worked for both Edward and Joseph Kennedy.
Yes, there is media bias, and it is clear to this writer that Simon and Schuster and 60 Minutes have been hoping to use Kuo's book as a tool to dishearten Republicans prior to the election. That would be such a new concept for those companies...not.
I have not linked to the book as I personally don't wish to provide it with any more publicity than it's already received, but obviously you can check it out at Amazon or elsewhere if you're interested.
