    They are the only liberals in the so-called liberal media.

    •  is olberman liberal? (none)
      do you have a basis for that, or are you just going on the fact that he's willing to call BS on the reptilicans?

      now, i'm pretty sure stewart is really a liberal despite his protestations that he's apolitical, but i've watched him much more than keith.

      and i think there are a number of other liberal TV journos, but they overcompensate to the right in order to appear "balanced." also, it's not what they want to report, it's what their corporate bosses tell them to report and how to spin it.

      •  Olberman is anti-BS (none)
        For the last few months, his has been the only news show I've been able to watch.  He repeatedly has reported stories ignored by others and spends very little time on the murder-mystery-du-jour.  He is very smart and sees through the bullshit.  He also does his homework.

        It is quite possible that he is personally liberal, but I think the liberal-seeming bias in his newscast is simply what a real, genuinely balanced newscast looks like when it does more than simply repeat Republican talking points.
