It's What You Don't Say

Neil Cavuto says, in regards to bias in the media, "The issue isn't what the media reports, it's what the media does not report."

You can read the whole thing here, but here's a snippet to wet your whistle:

... I mean, why is it the folks who argued that sex should never be an issue when it involved a Democrat, are now creating such a stink when it involves a Republican? Perhaps because they're hypocritical, phony, smarmy worms with an agenda as transparent as their own puffed up egos?

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Neil??

This isn't the first time, either. Does the name Bob Packwood ring a bell?

When Packwood, a pro-abortion-rights GOP senator, was vital to the defense of abortion, the press deemed nothing too good for him. When the Democrats recaptured the Senate in 1990, suddenly he was the worst threat to American womanhood since Gilles de Rais. (All right, so Bluebeard never made it to America, but you get the idea.)

But...what's this? All the accusations of sexual misconduct against Packwood were made well before 1990? And no one took an interest in them back then? Surely you jest! Our Fourth Estate would never consider the sacred honor of women to be less important than mere political advantage...would it?

I think I need more coffee. And maybe a tranquilizer to wash it down.
