The Washington Post today abandons objective journalism

Today, from reporter Dan Balz:

"I wrote yesterday about the risks to both McCain and Obama -- and the country -- as they fire at one another in increasingly sharp terms. The danger is that the winner will come to office with a sizable portion of the population poisoned by the effects of the campaign.
But what's also clear is that McCain's tactics are over the line, with no restraint in sight, and threaten to provoke reactions among partisans on both sides that will continue to escalate."

Sigh. "Over the line"? Really? So the Obama campaign and its surrogates rip McCain's words out of context, distort his positions, attack Sarah Palin and her family, but it's McCain who has gone "over the line"? Poor Mr. Balz--he disagrees with the attack on Bill Ayers. And what indeed would the Dan Balzes of the world say if John McCain was friends with and associated with someone who in his past blew up abortion clinics and remained today unrepentant about it?

I guess once in a while it's good that members of the liberal establishment news media remind us exactly how biased they are.
