CBS head: "Partisanship is very much a part of journalism now"
CBS head Les Moonves dropped the following into the mix at an Obama fundraiser last night: "Ultimately journalism has changed … partisanship is very much a part of journalism now."
No kidding. Like it hasn't been for at least the last 50 years or so?
Remember Bernard Goldberg?
Remember the last half-century of TV journalism in general, and of CBS News in particular?
There was once a time when at least the liberal media had the decent shame to deny their bias. Now, it seems, they simply let it all hang out, and dare the world to think the less of their professionalism.
Such as it is.
I really, really hope the RNC demands equal time for each and every episode of the Letterman show this Fall....
ADDENDUM: CBS officially denies that Moonves's statement applies to CBS.
And that's the way it isn't.
