I’ve often seem comments in the comments section here at Wizbang from “some guy” named Jim. I never knew he was like – you know- famous! Turns out he is the Vice President of the National Association of Chiefs of Police. He left a link in the comments section to an interesting article he wrote.

Ninety-two percent of US police commanders say they believe the news media are not fair and impartial in their coverage.
POLICE OFFICERS ENDORSE BUSH; NEWS MEDIA REMAIN SILENT by Jim Kouri, CPP
The nation’s largest police union, the Fraternal Order of Police, announced in September that they enthusiastically endorse President George W. Bush for reelection. More than 300,000 police officers are members of the FOP. Yet, the news media intentionally or unintentionally ignored this important endorsement by our nation’s law enforcement community, which shows the trust American cops have in Bush’s ability to wage a war on terrorism and his resolve to protect the homeland.
When the international firefighters union endorsed John Kerry (largely because he believes buying more fire engines will protect us from terrorists), the news media could hardly hold back their excitement when making the announcement of that endorsement to the American people.
