My Gosh, that hero of moderate, intellectual, honest exchange of truth Rush 
Limbaugh coulnd't have said it better.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see how a broad brush like this is 
as, or more, biased than any news media outlet, or individual journalist.

I'm not saying we're prefect, folks. Far from it. We have our problems, not 
the least of which is bean counters who force us to be beholden to 
advertisers and government, etc. But the honest efforts of many journalists 
is insulted by such accusations that are as biased, and unfair as anything 
out there this side of the Drudge report. Outrageous.

You'd think the Illuminati was running "the media." We sure wish we had 
that kind of power. And there ain't any way we have anywhere near the 
organization to be biased in one way or the other. Over 80 percent of 
newspapers are owned by conservative republicans. You think we follow a 
liberal agenda? Right. And I have a 90mm Noctiux to sell, cheap.

Sorry, Jim, but that got to me.
