You know media bias has reached epic proportions when journalists are criticizing their own colleagues for a lack of professionalism in covering Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama and Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin. – John King @ CNN


The sheer bias in the print and television coverage of this election campaign is not just bewildering, but appalling. And over the last few months I’ve found myself slowly moving from shaking my head at the obvious one-sided reporting, to actually shouting at the screen of my television and my laptop computer. – Michael Malone @ ABC

Newman A Closet Nuke Supporter

Paul Newman, who died last week, took a carefully guarded secret to his grave — something that would have disgraced him in Hollywood.

Did he have a secret mistress? (No, that wouldn’t bother anybody.)  Did he have a clandestine fleet of SUVs?  (Now that’s more like it.)  Was he addicted to McDonald’s hamburgers?
