If you want pretty non-biased reported then go the "The Economist".
They have an online edition that is pretty thorough.  I don't think any
U.S. based rags are unbiased.  On the bright side if you read both sides
and consider what each is removing from the table then you can
frequently guess the truth. :)

Glad the storm did not come your way.

O'Reilly sparks journalistic intensity, but I wouldn't mind seeing his
ass run out of town. I really, really value honesty and integrity in
journalism over panache. I move from Time to Newsweek to US News & World
Report searching for journalism without an axe to grind. Boring? Maybe.
But there's something to be said for non-biased reporting.

Why should we care? WHY should we care? B.D., we HAVE TO care. 

After all, M.B. Howard was the prototypical new age journalist. Not just

another tattered, pants-pissing newspaper reporter warming a barstool in
Denver Press Club, but a cutting edge (that'd be the edge of a
single-edge razor 
blade, of course) coke dust Hoover who sparked journalistic intensity
jangled nerves and $1,000-a-day habit, rather than a foggy, old-school
rage fueled 
by a three-boilermaker lunch.

And to think we ran his sorry ass out of town. How shortsighted could we
been?  : )

And we care about the former editor of the Rocky Mountain News, why? ;-)

Let me guess. Would that be Michael Balf Howard, former Rocky Mountain
News (Denver) editor-in-chief and cocaine addict who slithered out of
town in shame? 

No, I didn't think so.
