Some Democrats get it.

It was a nice change of pace to read Chris Nolan's critique of Nicholas Lemann's interview of Hugh Hewitt, which unfortunately is not online. Chris realizes that the notion of objective journalism is mostly about the MSM striving to ignore their own prejudices and how they affect what is covered and how it's covered, which is not something you see every day in people pulling the D lever.

I think if more Democrats saw things the way Chris did, we'd have a lot less reflexive FOX-bashing and a lot less sneering at talk-show hosts, who are at least honest about their political opinions. We might also have a lot less polarization going on.
