NPR blatantly biased towards bush
Advertisements [?]
I swear the RepubliCONs must be putting their spin machine into overdrive... this morning on NPR, every story about bush / Kerry was so heavily slanted it's hard to imagine even the daftest listeners wouldn't have noticed.

Every charge against bush was given by the reporter -- of course in the most deferential way -- and a bush campaign staffer was either directly quoted, or they played a tape of their rebuttal.

Every smear against Kerry was given directly from the lying stinking bushista's mouth, and not coincidentally, no Kerry staffer was quoted with any rebuttal to any of the smears against Kerry. It was just left hanging there.

and we hold these truths to be self evident:
#1 george w. bush is not president
#2 america is not a true democracy
#3 the media is not fooling me
