Michelle Malkin brings to our attention that WNBC.com in New York has posted an anti-SUV story this morning. Read the wording carefully. This is not the first time the major news media has attacked SUVs and it surly won’t be the last.

Police said 41-year-old Juan Jimenez was crossing Broadway near 230th Street at about 5:44 p.m. when a late model black Mitsubishi SUV hit him and pinned him under the vehicle with the wheelchair.

This type of journalism tries to demonize a whole class of vehicle out of bias against their size, fuel economy and status level. Those of us that are vehicle enthusiasts need to be aware that this bias exists in order to help protect our right to buy and drive what we want.

As Michelle notes,

The vehicle fled the scene? This ant-SUV bias is getting a little ridiculous, isn’t it?

It sure is, Michelle. It sure is!
