"Unbiased media" now means equal time for liars.
The Whitehouse is in full damage control mode regarding the federal response to Hurricane Katrina. The spinners have been dispatched like a cloud of locusts to the various media to lay blame squarely on the local authorities for the botched response to the disaster. They have no use for actual "facts" but rather are spreading outright falsehoods. Evidently being "unbiased" means giving these louts airtime even though it is clearly proven that they are covering for the Whitehouse with lie after lie. The timeline in the above link gives the factual course of events as this unfolded. So why should the facts be labeled as "opinion" and somehow given equal footing with those just spreading proven falsehoods? Thats not unbiased... if anything it's biased for the Whitehouse Rovian spinmeisters by allowing them to spread the falsehoods.
Here is a -link- that shows the true state of politics in D.C. at these times. Democrat Nancy Pelosi is just dead on with her assesment of this President but all she can do is slam him at a press conference. In the meantime Congressional Republicans are meeting behind closed doors (Democratic leadership not invited) to plan for a commission to investigate the response to Katrina. So we have Democrats calling a spade for a spade but without any ability to affect the matter, and Republicans setting up commissions that will undoubtably wind up shifting all blame from the administration and to local Democratic officials. We no longer live in a Republic as far as I'm concerned. This isn't the America I grew up with.
