This is some funny stuff...

...right here:

To those of us who believe in that old-fashioned notion that the news media ought to be a fair arbiter of the facts, it's troubling enough to note that News Corp., the parent of Fox, has just donated $1 million each to the Republican Governors Association and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a major underwriter of GOP campaigns.
Fair arbiter of the facts? So how does he explain people like Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann? I know they're on lesser-watched channels, but the point still stands. They're so incredibly biased that they might as well BE politicians. My money says the only reason those two don't run for some sort of political office (as Democrats, of course) is that they're much better-compensated where they are. I'm sure they'd tell you the same thing Rush Limbaugh told one of his TV show viewers when said viewer asked if Rush would run for president: "I can't afford the pay cut." Smith retains a bit of credibility for including Eliot Spitzer here, but that's not saying much because he's still way off base.
