On Tuesday, NBC’s “Today” show had opened with Matt Lauer asking: “Can the right wing withstand yet another scandal involving one of its own?” (Try imagining Matt Lauer, or any other network journalist out there, asking if “the left wing” could withstand yet another scandal after the breaking news of any one of the endless scandals revolving around Bill and Hillary Clinton.) Ann Curry chimed in wondering “how does this specter of hypocrisy affect the Party?”
The “Today” show came knocking, looking for GOP interviewees for Thursday morning. Most Republicans locked and bolted their doors. Tom DeLay agreed – and came out fighting…..
…..A few more confrontations like this, and the double-standard will end.
It is harder today then ever to find a news source that is NOT leaning to the right or left. Where are the true news stories? Why can’t they just give us the news and let us decide?
I get tired of hearing the same half truths over and over knowing full well that sooner or later, the cool-aid drinkers are going to start taking it as the truth.
I do not listen to NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC or PBS because they lean. I don’t care which way they are leaning, they should not be LEANING at all when it comes to the straight news.
