NY Times vs. Washington Times 

When will the media learn that being "balanced" is not the same as being objective? Here's CNN on the media reaction to the corporate tax giveaway recently passed in the House:

The $34 billion corporate tax bill passed last week by the House of Representatives has been called "a masterpiece of bad legislation" by the editors of the allegedly liberal New York Times and "an arbitrary auction of taxpayer money" by the editors of the allegedly conservative Washington Times.

So the country's leading paper is "allegedly liberal," while the moonie-controlled Washington Times is merely "allegedly conservative." CNN can take "allegedly unbiased."
