Sure. You're impartial. It's not like you said anything mean or offensive, right?
"...oddly, other networks seem to be encouraging..."
No bias. Yeah. None at all.

Gov. Chris Gregoire has approved a tax break for the state's troubled newspaper industry.
The new law gives newspaper printers and publishers a 40 percent cut in the state's main business tax. The discounted rate mirrors breaks given in years past to the Boeing Co. and the timber industry.
Meanwhile, taxes on everything else are going up.
Never claim that Democrats don't protect and reward thei loyal servants.

From expanding the White House's faith-based office to opening his rallies with prayer, Barack Obama has embraced faith in a more visible way than any other president in recent memory.It's like they're not even trying anymore. Now, the article does talk about some controversial issues like abortion policy, but sheesh.

IF you wanted to pick the moment when the American news business went on suicide watch, it was almost exactly three years ago. That’s when Stephen Colbert, appearing at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, delivered a monologue accusing his hosts of being stenographers who had, in essence, let the Bush White House get away with murder (or at least the war in Iraq). To prove the point, the partying journalists in the Washington Hilton ballroom could be seen (courtesy of C-Span) fawning over government potentates — in some cases the very “sources” who had fed all those fictional sightings of Saddam Hussein’s W.M.D....yeah, the big newspapers are dying because their reporters are just too damn conservative. Much too willing to give the Rethugs a pass. Uh-huh.
There is no liberal bias in the MSM. And, piggybacking on one of my earlier posts today, these aren't the droids you're looking for.

The Politico notes that the new ranking GOP member of the Senate Judiciary Committee is noted Conservative White SouthernerTM Jeff Sessions of Alabama. As a Conservative White SouthernerTM , Sen. Sessions is bound to oppose any Obama nominee due to his fear of what an icky brown person may try to do to the Supreme Court.
Of course, this Conservative White SouthernerTM must be stopped.
Did I mention that Sen. Sessions is a Conservative White SouthernerTM ? Because he is as much a Conservative White SouthernerTM as Dick Cheney's daughter is a lesbian.

The union and management suspended discussions early Monday morning. They have not set a time or location for the next round of talks, a source familiar with the matter, but unauthorized to discuss it, told Reuters.
The Times Co had set midnight Sunday as the deadline to extract $20 million in cost cuts from its unions to avoid closing the Globe, which it said could lose up to $85 million this year.
The Times stepped up pressure on the unions, saying it planned to file notice with the U.S. government that warns it could shut the paper down in 60 days. Negotiations on cost cuts could continue even after that filing.
The 137-year-old Globe is a mainstay of New England news consumers. It is the 17th-largest paper in the United States by daily paid circulation, and 13th-largest on Sundays. If it closed, Boston would be the first big U.S. city to be without a daily newspaper of comparable size.
