Living in a Glass House

ABC headlines this story as follows: "Snow's New Post Shows White House Love for Fox," (referring, of course, to Snow's former employer, the Fox News Channel).

It's somewhat interesting that this story comes from ABC, of all places. Because The White House may love Fox, but ABC loves Clinton -- ABC is the home of former Clinton Communications Director George Stephanopoulos.

And while administrations aren't charged with being supposedly "objective" or "politically neutral," news organizations are. So it seems to me that ABC's love for Clinton is more noteworthy than The Bush White House's for Fox. And yet I don't recall seeing any stories covering that romance.

When I hear opinions like this, I remember my grandpa's method of keeping his horse on track with what he called "blinders." (For readers raised in cities, that's those little pads on the bridle that shield the horse's peripheral/side vision.) The difference here is that leftists seem to have only one blinder, and it shields the left eye. Everything they see that isn't right under their noses, to them, comes from the right.

I'm told the carpeting is especially hot for Julie Banderas.

Who CARES? Maybe the next Dem who wins the post will really have a hard on for NBC, and they'll change the channels. Until then, buck up little sprouts...
