Rare occurrence

Last night, while watching the health care voting, I got sick of the usual pabulum from the usual suspects on CNN, and I tuned into MSNBC. There I saw something I almost never see for longer than a couple of hours: an actual liberal slant on the news, as opposed to the fevered imaginings of conservatives who object when reality runs against them.

Of course, with Ed Schultz hosting, the slant should have been obvious.

Ironically, Schultz did call on conservative voices - reporters! Mike Viqueira couldn't contain his Republican opinion, couldn't even dress it up in conditionals.

If you're keeping score at home: Republicans find bias in objective reporting if it fails to confirm their opinion, yet they love bias in reporting that does confirm their own bias.
