During the primary season, I tended to criticize more Republicans. That made sense, because the bruising primary fight on the Republican side absorbed the majority of political air. Despite insisting that my selections weren’t based on ideological bias but just calling ’em as I saw ’em, a few people accused me of bias anyway. So be it.
For the second consecutive month, the equation has flipped. Democrats have again taken the majority of the spots on the list for May. As I said, I call ’em as I see ’em. You’re free to disagree with my picks, and I hope you’ll offer your thoughts in the comments section below.
Without any further ado, here are my (very subjective) picks for the five worst media disasters of May 2012!
