General Clark and the Media Whores

It's been bad before, but what is the DEAL?! Even taking into account a right-wing bias, don't these "journalists" have to at least PRETEND to be neutral? Why is a revered anchor like Brokaw suddenly a political pundit showing up on MTP slamming Clark? Why is Peter Jennings, a normally pretty neutral anchor - even left-leaning at times - showing up on Faux and pummelling Clark about G-Dub's AWOL status? What did Clark ever do to Jeff Greenfield, Too-much-Candy Crowley, Woodruff, Matthews, Klein, Hume...the list is endless and so are their attacks.

I mean, since when do journalists defend presidents? Especially presidents who were AWOL?! Why is that "off-limits"? It's very troubling.

Clark was dead and buried yesterday, a sure 4th or 5th place finisher. When that DIDN'T happen, did anyone retract anything? Say a nice thing about Clark's 3rd place finish in his first-ever election? Talk about Clark's chances next week? Nope. Kerry, Dean and Edwards. Clark's news today? Miscommunication with his chartered plane's pilots. "Let's hope his campaign goes better than his plane ride last night" snarks Woodruff.

Not to be a :tinfoilhat: but I've literally never seen a piling-on (esp. someone running 3rd or 4th) as I've seen this past week. These whores go out of their WAY to blast The General. Why do Kerry and Edwards go unscathed? Somebody help me get it, cause I don't.
