Don't Call Me O'Reilly

I don't know why this is worthy of a post since overwhelming evidence has already been presented over the years, but seriously, WTF?! Why do people constantly rain down on the FNC about being biased, but say very little about the NYTimes unabashed willingness to support the liberal wing of American politics when it should be presenting a fair and balanced view. Case in point, a little research done by MY favorite NY rag, the Post.

The GOP staffer quoted in this article is spot on with his observation, MoveOn.org could have had this printed for free in the editorial section. Sad, but true.

To be fair, I don't like the Times or Faux news...

But this situation I don't fault NYT, since they did what they were supposed to. They didn't censor a paying client.

Thats what the free market is supposed to foster afterall :)

Why, because their biggest claim isn't that they are "fair and balanced" which is Faux's claim. Just because you have Colmes on your network doesn't make you balanced. Not supporting NYT, but they took money for an ad and printed it, nothing wrong with that. People print crazy ass shit every day.

To be fair though, all proceeds from MoveOn.org and the NYT ads revenue go directly to Al Qaeda and Hillary Clinton.

I find that adding "To be fair though" to the start of a sentence makes me feel better about what I'm about to say, regardless of whether I think its right, or even funny.
