Note: After you watch the above video make sure you check this out:
Cenk & Ben On How Lou Dobbs & Limbaugh Turned School Bus Fight Racial.

Summary: This video is from TYT's new YouTube channel, TYT Interviews. Cenk talks to Boston Globe writer and author of Idiot America Charles Pierce about the failure of the MSM in confusing neutrality with objectivity. They also get into why the MSM does this, and they explain why sports reporters do a much better job than political reporters.

6. "One of my dirty little secrets, Jake...
...is that I actually went to journalism school." :rofl:

I just stumbled on this book today. Be sure to read the section on Terri Schiavo.
