Clear Example of Bias

Let’s take Politico; I normally don’t see it terribly slanted.

Then, we get a story like this:

Ex-Jailbird Ney Gets Radio Show.”

Read it over.

I suppose Ney’s only at fault because, unlike a Kennedy or an Ayers, he didn’t kill anyone when he went to jail — or, well, I guess… didn’t? I find it fascinating we can get a list of folks who have made careers post embarrassment and it painted as some terrible thing, or a uniquely conservative thing.

Thrush, of the Politico bloggers, is systematically the most biased. But I thought this was a bit exceptional and worthy of comment.

So, I comment.
