Define Bias

The cutest part of the "Rathergate" report is its insistence that they could find no evidence of political bias in the event.

I guess there are two relevant questions. First, what would it take to prove political bias and second, how hard did they look.

The left has jumped on the finding that there is was no political bias like Rosie O'Donnell on a young orphan carrying a bag of malomars. Click read more.

But trolling through left wing blogs looking for dirt, taking documents from a mentally instable man with an axe to grind against Bush, working to secure a book deal for said partisan hack, coordinating with the Kerry campaign to put them in touch with the hack, doing little to no work to discover the source of the document, failing to get the documents authenticated, and rushing the patently fake documents on the air all smack of something more than "the normal rush to get a story out".

Or is the report suggesting that this is status quo?

More to be found at Powerline, the blog that broke the original story.

They found no bias because they did their best not to find any. Viacom knew when they hired Dick there was bad blood between him and the Bushes.
