Comments: Politico Reporter Changes Venues, Works for Same Cause

Personally, I'd like to see the media return to being overtly partisan. Back when papers sold based on their party affiliation -- "The Tallahassee Democrat," Marion, IL's "Daily Republican" -- every reader knew *exactly* where the paper stood, and which side of the story they were getting. People were free to buy whichever paper suited their *personal* tastes, without anyone having to pretend to be objective and unbiased. (Hint: Nobody is.)

Of course, that would initially mean ten thousand Democrat newspapers to one or two Republican ones, but I bet you'd see people vote with their wallets quickly enough to balance that way the heck back out. ;)

Anyway, I'm sure it'll never happen, so we'll just leave it up to the Internet to be what news should've been...

Gosh Brian, what more does 90% of the MSM have to do to be more overtly partisan? Scroll "Kill all the conservatives and sell their children into slavery!!!" continuously across the bottom of the screen? ;-)
