US Media: Katrina and more

1. What they said then, what they say now, and a few obvious comments: from Instapundit (and more references there, as usual).

2. Another study (UCLA) says US media is left-leaning. That's not new; but I wonder if there is not a deeper link between items 1 and 2. Maybe not. But some of the "what they said then but not now" things I mentioned above are closely related to favorite political issues: that the hurricane damaged blacks more than whites (not so), that more poor folks died than rich folks (ostensibly not so, which surprises me), etc.
