MSM Stay Away From Reid In Droves

Nice to see WaPo editorialize on Harry Reid's real estate scandal. Ditto the Philadelphia Enquirer and the Atlanta Constitution.

Not nice to see is that when I did a Nexis search of today's news coverage for "Harry Reid," I got a big fat total of nine stories, three of which didn't deal with the scandal.

When I put in "Mark Foley," today's coverage topped out at 1,000 hits, when Nexis stops and demands a more limiting search. And ancient old Jack Abramoff, the definition of yesterday's news, yielded 625 hits today.

But, please, it's not media bias. It's just that Foley's story involves sex and Abramoff had that dashing black hat. Check.
