What Liberal Media?

Imagine if Brit Hume said this:

Al Qaeda really hurt us, but not as much as Ted Turner has hurt us, particularly in the case of CNN. CNN is worse than Al Qaeda — worse for our society. It’s as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was.

The left would be screaming bloody murder. Of course, Hume didn’t say that about CNN. Keith Olberman said it about Fox News.

Olberman is my standard fallback for people who claim Fox News is biased and all other news isn’t. Olberman is screaming blue-state liberal and a pompous idiotic one at that.

Update: Now that I think about it, I have to admit that’s precisely the sort of thing Boortz, Limbaugh and Hannity have been saying. But those are opinion shows, not news.
