The Monitor's sort-of-annual listing of recommended websites and blogs is a little different this time. Previous listings were an amalgam of readers' favorites and the Monitor's own choices; this one is purely the Monitor's concoction.

In an extraordinary interview published last Friday in Haaretz, Uri Avnery, the grand old man of the Israeli Left, spoke of his deep affection for Yasir Arafat, his great sadness at Arafat's passing, and his belief that Arafat would be recognized as one of history's great men.

Sun rises in East, Times endorses Democrat: Most Americans weren't born the last time The New York Times gave its endorsement to a Republican presidential candidate. The year was 1956, the candidate was the incumbent president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and a weekday copy of the Times cost a nickel.

7 p.m.: Brit Hume and company over at Fox News look as though they've just been informed of the death of a loved one. Could the exit polls have been even worse than had been rumored all afternoon on the Internet? No one's saying anything, of course, but the atmosphere is positively funereal.

In "The Media and the Military," an article in the November issue of The Atlantic - arguably the best serious magazine in America today - Robert Kaplan writes of the great social and cultural divide that exists between the nation's elite journalists and its soldiers.

Did Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon vow to burn Palestinian children and rape Arabic girls? Did former Israeli leader Menachem Begin refer to Palestinians as "two-legged beasts," and did another Israeli leader declare that all Arabs must be killed unless they are willing to live as slaves?

Barring any of the nightmare scenarios posited by those who worried about the results being literally too close to call, the presidential election will have been decided by the time this column appears in print. But the Monitor was still busy early this week sorting through the daunting number of letters and e-mails that began coming in almost immediately after The Jewish Press endorsed George W. Bush two weeks ago.

The most shocking thing about the scandal now swirling around Dan Rather and CBS News is that - after decades of embarrassing incidents, both on air and off, and a mountain of statements betraying a pronounced political bias (his colleague Andy Rooney has called him "transparently liberal") - Rather was still in a position to so damage his network's reputation.

The 2004 presidential campaign may well represent the tipping point in terms of public awareness that, despite the ritualistic protests to the contrary by some of the more blatant offenders, an insidious liberal bias does indeed infect nearly every aspect of the news coverage provided by mainstream media.

Pat Buchanan was on "Meet the Press" this past Sunday, but more noteworthy than Buchanan's predictable anti-Israel fulminations was the tacit agreement with Buchanan voiced by Sen. Bob Graham, the Florida Democrat who sought his party's presidential nomination early in the 2004 campaign cycle.

The Monitor frequently has made men tion of the website Timeswatch.org, which methodically lays out, weekday after weekday, the lies, distortions, bias and convenient "mistakes" that seem to grace every issue of The New York Times, the one-time paper of record that now features as much opinion-laced journalism as one might find in any given edition of nakedly partisan publications such as The New Republic or The Weekly Standard.

A tale of two books and how the media control what you know and whether you know. A tale of two books one harshly critical of President Bush the other highly unflattering to Sen. Hillary Clinton. A tale of two books the first of which rode a wave of media hype to bestsellerdom the second of which was all but ignored.

The e-mail arrived a couple weeks ago from a Bush-hater barely able to contain his glee. According to this fellow's opening line, the president had once again shown himself to be a boob beyond compare, as evidenced by the following "news item" my correspondent helpfully attached:

Recently, the veteran journalist Barbara Matusow wrote a rather shallow and uncomprehending piece for American Journalism Review, portraying critics of the mainstream media's Middle East coverage as nothing more than propagandists and chronic scolds, and claiming to detect little if any conscious bias among reporters stationed in the region.

The transformation of The New York Times is more or less complete. The newspaper long known for a liberal sensibility that sometimes bled from the editorials into the news stories has, over the past decade or so, essentially become the media auxiliary of the Democratic Party.

June 18 marked the fifteenth anniversary of the passing of I.F. Stone, who upon his death was eulogized by mainstream journalists for his supposed independence and iconoclasm and who still remains an iconic figure to many in the media. This despite (or perhaps because of) his long record as a vocal enthusiast of Soviet-style socialism and merciless basher of Israel long before the sport assumed widespread popularity.

Maybe you still believe that claims of a biased liberal media are nothing but the deranged muttering of paranoid conservatives. And it could very well be that you refuse even to entertain the possibility that the mainstream media's coverage of this year's presidential campaign is driven to a large extent by a single-minded determination to send George W. Bush home to Texas and see to it that John F. Kerry is elected the 44th president of the United States.

New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler is one of 13 Congressional Democrats now on record as believing that the United Nations - cesspool of corruption and hypocrisy, comfort station for thugs and dictators of every ideological stripe, breeding ground for anti-U.S. and anti-Israel sentiment - is better qualified than American officials to oversee the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

The death of the legendary actor Marlon Brando brings to mind an incident that tarred his reputation for years afterward and that serves to illustrate how certain Jewish organizations and their self-serving "spokesmen" risk trivializing the entire issue of anti-Semitism.

What was that about the media not having a liberal bias? For a few months back in 2003, left-wing pundits and authors, reacting to a spate of books documenting the unmistakable leftwardtilt of the country's prestige media outlets, began putting forth the argument that their side was the one getting the short end of the stick.
