STOP THE PRESSES!!!

Study Reveals Democrats Favored in News Stories!

We never would have guessed….

And in a follow up to the above.

Public Wants Patriotic but Unbiased Media, Study shows.

Americans want their journalists to show some patriotism, respect the public, increase accuracy and lessen bias, according to a poll from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press released yesterday.

Seventy percent of the respondents said news organizations should embrace “a decidedly ‘pro-American’ viewpoint,” the poll stated; among conservative Republicans, that figure stood at 85 percent. In comparison, 51 percent said the organizations “stand up for America.”

Ahem. Excuse me while I go turn on Fox News Channel.

Here is a pair of stories on the rumbling on Bush’s right.

I hope Karl Rove is listening.

Gephardt’s 16 Words

Great editorial by Bill Kristol, on 16 words from a speech by Dick Gephardt. These are words that will come back to haunt the Democrats.

“George Bush has left us less safe and less secure than we were four years ago.”

Amazing.

The World Turned Upside Down

I can’t believe I’m posting an editorial by Bill Maher, and agreeing with most of it.

Here’s a quote:

Maybe he’s a lousy governor, but he was the one elected by voters who bothered to show up at the polls. Their efforts shouldn’t be undone by disgruntled shoppers signing a petition on their way out of Target.

Anyone who thinks this recall is some great affirmation of democracy should review early American history. This is precisely the kind of direct involvement by the howling masses that the framers wanted to avoid.

By the way, Trivia Time Fans:

The heading for this post is from a song, played at a pivotal point in American History.

Any guesses?

Can a Practicing Catholic Be a Federal Judge?

Apparently not, at least according to the Senate Democrats

Guess this definitely counts out Evangelicals too.
