REALLY?! The MSM Pulled for Obama?!


In a "shocking" move the ombudsman for the Washington Post has penned an article conceeding that the paper had an "Obama Tilt in the Coverage" Yeah, no shit Sherlock.

"...But Obama deserved tougher scrutiny than he got, especially of his undergraduate years, his start in Chicago and his relationship with Antoin "Tony" Rezko, who was convicted this year of influence-peddling in Chicago. The Post did nothing on Obama's acknowledged drug use as a teenager.

One gaping hole in coverage involved Joe Biden, Obama's running mate. When Gov. Sarah Palin was nominated for vice president, reporters were booking the next flight to Alaska. Some readers thought The Post went over Palin with a fine-tooth comb and neglected Biden. They are right; it was a serious omission. However, I do not agree with those readers who thought The Post did only hatchet jobs on her. There were several good stories on her, the best on page 1 by Sally Jenkins on how Palin grew up in Alaska..."

And now all should be forgiven and *poof* they're credible again? You can't fancy yourself the fourth branch of government and then neglect each and every check and balance and retain credibilty...
