MSM Run Up to the Elections

According to some reports, CNN's sandbag of Lynne Cheney is part of a new strategy to "counterprogram" Fox News.

Wonder if we'll hear all the same people who denounce Fox's alleged "bias" do the same, now that CNN is running a series "Where the Right Went Wrong" in the week before election day, using research culled by left-wing partisans? Imagine the outcry if Fox did the same from the right.

Don't hold your breath waiting for any outrage. The journalistic establishment considers bias a bad thing only when they construe it as helping conservatives. No doubt the New York Times' newest in kind contribution to the Democrats will be left decently unmentioned.

But in a day when news like this makes headlines, it's hard to imagine why the MSM keeps on doing the same old thing, isn't it?
