Maybe They Should Have Thought on That a Bit More

      The New York Times "reviews" Ari Fleischer's new book about his time as White House press spokesman.  It's a slam, of course.  But there is one interesting passage:
[Fleischer] suggests that there is "an ideological bias in the media" that reflects the opinions of the Democrats "far more than the Republicans." It's an argument that sidesteps the fact that cable news channels usually feature conservative and liberal guests in perfectly matched pairs à la "Crossfire." It's also an argument that shrugs off the very loud voices of conservatives on Fox News and talk radio - voices that no less a conservative than William Kristol has noted have provided "much more balance" in a media environment once criticized by those on the right as being too liberal.

      The only way Fox and talk radio can balance anything is if there is something on the other side of the scale.  So, they are admitting that the non-Fox media is 'unbalanced?'

      Oh, wait, I was assuming some intellectual integrity from the Times, not to mention just plain intellect.  "Never Mind!"

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
