MFM: Picking Sides In Illinois Senate Race

Surprisingly, they are siding with the Democrat. I know, right?

It seems Mark Kirk (a rather moderate Republican) has spent a lot of time pointing out that his opponent, Obama supported Democrat Alexi Giannoulias, is tied to a failed and corrupt bank.

Well, this is just too much for the CBS affiliate in Chaicago. They have announced they simply won't cover the race if that's all Kirk is going to talk about.

"Channel 2's made a decision that we’re really not going to cover the Senate race if it consistently, only in your terms is about Broadway Bank," the reporter, whom a colleague identified as veteran political producer Ed Marshall says in the clip, said to be from a Monday press conference. "The bank's been taken over by the government. Alexi’s been pilloried. Tell me – what is your campaign going forward?"

Follow the link as the News Director tries to walk this back claiming they are pushing both candidates.

Yeah, that doesn't explain the "Alexi's been pilloried" comment. Awww, the poor corrupt Chicago Democrat is getting beat up for being corrupt. Don't worry, the MFM is here to protect him!

As infuriating as this is, it's nice to see that the MFM simply isn't even trying to hide their allegiance any more.

The sooner these dinosaurs collapse, the better.

Speaking of which, anyone want to buy Newsweek?I bet it's pretty cheap.
