Washington Post Admits Bias

In a post last week, TAC excoriated the press for its bias toward Barack Obama during the presidential campaign.

Several commenters took me to task.

Today, however The Washington Post admitted its bias. Their ombudsman, Deborah Howell, had this to say...
"...readers have been consistently critical of ... what they saw as a tilt toward Democrat Barack Obama. My surveys, which ended on Election Day, show that they are right..."
Just one little thing, Deborah, where the fuck were you for the past two years?

TAC voted for Obama and is happy he won. That doesn't make me any less disgusted with the dangerous game the press played.

One of the subtle ways the press gets us to think their way is with photo editing. Think of all the unflattering photos you've seen of John and Cindy McCain. Can you recall one unflattering photo of Barack or Michelle Obama?

I can't.
