Bias and/or perspective

Jeff Jarvis over at Buzzmachine.com has a wise and thoughtful response to this piece by Vaughn Ververs over at the CBS News blog Public Eye. Ververs seems to be confusing partisanship with bias, prejudice with sympathy, and I think that's a product of his location inside the NYDCLA news media zone, where most people can't get two sentences out of their mouths without imparting some spin to it while simultaneously insisting that they're being "objective", which everyone here in Flyover County knows damn well is bullshit. What we can't seem to agree on is whether they're spinning it on behalf of the Commie Pinko Defeatist Running Dogs or the Fascist Digital Brownshirt Minions of Darth Rove.

At least Ververs (and hopefully his bosses) are admitting there's a bias at work, although they're still fumbling towards figuring out how to come out of their ideological closet and be honest about themselves and who they support.
