Media bias forum features Franken, David Brock, BBC, Wonkette...

The noxious "liberal" site Raw Story has to be pulling our leg. In "House Dems to hold forum on media bias Tuesday with Franken, Brock, others" they inform us that John Conyers (D-Outer Space) is conducting a forum on the 24th to discuss media bias.

Co-sponsors include: "Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL), Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (R-TX), Rep Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) and Rep. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)."

Invitees include: "Air America Radio host Al Franken, Media Matters chief David Brock, AmericaBLOG's John Aravosis, a Washington bureau BBC reporter, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting's Steve Rendell and Mark Lloyd, from the progressive thinktank Center for American Progress. Wonkette's Ana Marie Cox has also been invited."

Tell me this is an elaborate hoax.

UPDATE: VRWC members rejoice! "Randi Rhodes at Congress Media Bias panel".

UPDATE 2: Latest report here.
