What Liberal Media?

I had to borrow the title of Eric Alterman's book for this post after reading this from The Raw Story:

Fox News had copies of emails written by Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) to a Louisiana boy, but chose not to run the story, according to a passage in an Associated Press report.
Okay, you'd expect Fox to cover Republican assess even if they were caught in the act of eating young boys they'd just diddled. But then there was this:

Meanwhile, Florida newspapers — who were leaked copies of the e-mail with the Louisiana boy last year — defended their decision not to run stories. Both The St. Petersburg Times and The Miami Herald were given copies of the e-mail, as were other news organizations, including Fox News.
Eric's fond of asking, so I'll ask: "what liberal media?"
