"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Media Blog on National Review Online - State of the Media 2006

Media Blog on National Review Online:

I thought these were interesting quotes as pointed by Stephen Spruiell at NRO

"The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press found that 75% of Americans believed that news organizations were more concerned with attracting the biggest audience, while only 19% thought they cared more about informing the public."


"Nearly three quarters of Americans (72%) in the summer of 2005 saw the press as favoring one side, up from 66% two years earlier. And 60% saw the press as politically biased, up from 53% in 2003."

Ouch, but it sure reflects the job they're doing.
