Examples could be multiplied endlessly, but one that struck me today was this over-the-top news story, or whatever CBS News may call it, by Robert Hendin. Reading the article, you might assume that Hendin is a far-left blogger, but no: CBS describes him as “senior producer for ‘Face the Nation’ and a CBS News senior political producer...... So if you have ever wondered whether Face the Nation and other CBS News programs are shot through with liberal bias, check this out:

An ardent Obama supporter said yesterday, “why doesn’t he just fight” and that about says it all. The latest kerfuffle over the timing of what is supposed to be a major speech on jobs broke down into a sandbox spat.

The idea that Obama isn’t “fighting” is the current meme on the Left. In fact, he has been furiously jamming a left-wing agenda down the throats of the American people for the last 2 1/2 years, and is now starting to back off only because he hopes to have some chance of being re-elected by an increasingly hostile electorate.

The White House seemed happy to be rebuffed by the House Republicans who after hitting the lowest approval rating ever recorded, should have done anything in their power to get back in the good graces of the public.

What a mystery! Those diabolical Republicans aren’t watching the polls, and instead are trying to do what their constituents sent them to Washington to accomplish! Actually, to be fair, Republicans are looking at the polls, and they figure the Senate is almost certainly theirs, they will pick up seats in the House, and in all likelihood, if something unexpected doesn’t happen in the next 12 months, the next president will be a Republican. Hendin has been reading those same polls, which is why he is writing this sort of hysterical, partisan prose.
