Sadly, Hardly a Surprise

This remarkable admission and apology came today from the new director of a television station that broadcast the Tennessee U.S. Senate debate between Republican Bob Corker and Democrat Harold Ford:

Last night, we made a mistake. After we broadcast the Senate debate, we brought you 30 minutes of discussion and analysis.

This segment included our anchor, another journalist, and a supporter of Harold Ford, Jr., but no supporters of Bob Corker. That wasn't right.


You don't say. The only question is why that wasn't apparent at the time.

Carol that would have required thinking. An attribute long missing from the MSM.

Give 'em slack, it was an oversight.

The surprise is that they acknowledged it. Most News orgs would just ignore people calling them and e-mailing.

I bet it was carefully calculated and planned, the way the guy is back tracking. They just didn't realize how many people that watched didn't have the mental disorder of liberalism.

Do the Democrats have a conscience?

All's fair as long as "The Greater Good" is served... however they choose to define it, of course.
