Who speaks for the Middle?
Objective journalism my ass.
It occurred to me that I didn't know of a "moderate" news channel or media talking head. I guess "moderate" doesn't draw ratings, because being left or right means being divisive, and conflict = interesting. Moderates aren't fun because it's harder for the other side to pin down and tear down.
This whole Foley thing really shows the leanings of the news networks. CNN predicts that the Republicans will lose control of Congress, while Fox predicts that they won't and that it's all a Democrat conspiracy.
Frankly, I think Hastert needs to resign and there should be a criminal investigation. Anyone found to have been sitting on these allegations, whether it was Republicans protecting their own interests or Democrats holding it for pre-election ammo, needs to be charged to whatever extent the law allows and kicked out of Congress.
Of course, if the conspiracy theorists are right, them Osama will be found and/or killed in the next two weeks.
