Leftist Media Bias of the Day

Headline and first para from page A12 of the May 2nd New York Times:
Seeking Cudgel, Republicans Return to National Security Issue

Stymied in so many of their efforts to put President Obama and Democrats on the defensive, Republicans are returning to national security, an issue that has served the purpose well for them in the past.
The entire article treats the Republican position as posturing for partisan advantage. National Review's Jonah Goldberg quips:
Because you know, they can't possibly, like, mean it when they express concern for national security or disagreement with Obama.
Compare that with the same paper's columnist covering lefty issues with the exact opposite spin on page A11 that same day.

As I've said:
Treating similarly situated persons differently is the very definition of bias. Melody Music v. F.C.C., 345 F.2d 730, 732 (D.C. Cir. 1965).
Predictable, given that many journalists don't know a Republican.

Nothing like an almost certainly completely OT link posting to make someone look really, really stupid, is there?

Never trust links that wrap around multiple lines.
