This video from the USA says, according to “LiberalViewer” who posted it:
Last week, when the American Civil Liberties Union (of which I am a proud member) got the Obama Administration to release four memos from the Bush Administration’s Justice Department that described and purported to legally justify various torture techniques, the contrasting coverage on Fox News and MSNBC news commentary shows (e.g. “The O’Reilly Factor” and “The Rachel Maddow Show”) provided a good example of the different level of bias at Fox News compared to the level of bias found at other networks.
You can find the four torture memos from the Bush Administration’s Justice Department on the ACLU’s website at http://www.aclu.org/safefree/general/olc_memos.html
You can find the full April 17, 2009, segment of MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” from which I took 2 short clips for my video at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22425001/vp/30271978
You can find the full April 17, 2009, segment of Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” from which I took a short clip for my video at http://www.foxnews.com/search-results/m/22115673/talking-points-4-17.htm
And, finally, as always, you can find DOZENS and DOZENS more examples of Fox News bias on my Fox News bias playlist on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=A3BD2524FE99BD4D

The Obama administration’s decision Wednesday to renege on its promise to comply with a court order and release photographs of US personnel torturing detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan represents another capitulation by his administration to mounting pressure from the right and the military-intelligence apparatus.
On June 18, 2009, the American Psychological Association [APA] Board issued an Open Letter on the subject of psychologists’ involvement in abusive national security interrogations: here.
Protecting Psychologists Who Harm: The APA’s Latest Wrong Turn. Roy Eidelson, Truthout: “Shortly after learning about the American Psychological Association’s (APA) late February announcement of its new Member-Initiated Task Force to Reconcile Policies Related to Psychologists’ Involvement in National Security Settings, I found my thoughts turning to the School of the Americas, Blackwater and perhaps even more surprisingly, the Patagonian toothfish. Those may seem like a strange threesome, but they share one important thing in common. All have undergone a thorough repackaging and renaming in a marketing effort aimed at obscuring – but not altering – some ugly truth”: here.
