Instapundit: [T]he candid admission in July by Evan Thomas, assistant managing editor of Newsweek, that the press "wants Kerry to win." Though this seemed significant at the time, it was only later - with things like CBS's bogus-document scandal, and the attempted late hit about the alleged missing explosives - that it became clear just how right Mr. Thomas was.The admission that the press was biased by someone on the inside was indeed a big admission by the media. This had been written about at length, by outsiders and ex-insiders, but such a candid admission should have gotten more attention.
PowerlineBlog: The most important event of the campaign was the exposure of documents cited by "60 Minutes" in its report on President Bush's Air National Guard service as fraudulent.The 60-minutes story and the resulting Rathergate story was proof - good enough for most Americans - that the press is biased. A major news organization was caught in the midst of a fraud that was designed to influence a Presidential election. This should have produced more outrage.
For my feelings about members of the press see Quote of the Day. For my part, I agree with Powerline: "Never again will the mainstream news media be able to dictate the flow of information to the American people." (Hat tip to InkWell)
