Media Bias? What a Shocker

CNN hit for planted questions I am sure that thousands of others will cover the story of CNN using Democrats to skew the recent Republican debates. And do it better than I could. Still, I have to offer one observation.

At this late date, is anyone shocked to find that the news media is by-and-large biased in favor of Democrats and against Republicans? (Does anyone remember Rathergate?)

Giving the news media the power over the debates is like asking the fox to guard the hen house. They should probably give control of the individual debates back to organizations like the League of Women Voters, if any of them are not biased.

And when politicians can get away with not answering a simple yes/no question at a debate (Hillary), do we really expect that these will get us anywhere? The term "media circus" comes to mind.
