$hocking: ABC Employees' Donations Went to Obama by a 33-to-1 Ratio, and Not a Single Journalist Gave to Palin/McCain

Elizabeth Hasselbach maybe, sorta, kinda could be considered a "journalist." If you squint. So, maybe one journalist gave to Palin/McCain.

The tally: 130 to Obama, 4 to Palin/McCain.

The MSM always insists that 1) it has no political bias at all and 2) to the extent they maybe, kinda, sorta have a political bias, they are pros and can keep it under control.

Why would they assert something so ridiculous? If a Muslim group accuses them of exhibiting anti-Muslim bias, they don't pooh-pooh that charge. They immediately have meetings with the group, put a panel on the subject on Nightline, elevate a Muslim journalist to some sort of bias-ombudsman position, etc.

They take such charges of bias seriously, in other words, so long as the charges come from groups associated with the left.

It's only when Republicans charge bias they dismiss the complaints and refuse to make any attempts at amelioration at all.

That demonstrates that their bias against conservatives is very strong, not weak and controllable as they insist. Women, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, etc. can all charge bias and expect a receptive, if not groveling, hearing.

Only one group gets the "that's absurd" treatment.

They are so biased they know it for damn-sure, and don't want to even give the charge oxygen. And they sure the hell don't want to impose rules on themselves -- a "political minority" watchdog in their organization, for example -- that might actually serve to restrain that bias.

Eh. I abhor them.
