Retired WaPo Reporter: 'MSM...overwhelmingly to the Left'

This isn't exactly news to anyone with more than a handful of brain cells to rub together, but it's nice to hear one of the culprits admit it. From Howard Kurtz's column in the Washington Post (give them a little credit for publishing this):
The "mainstream media presents itself as unbiased, when in fact there are built into it many biases, and they are overwhelmingly to the left."

The man who made that comment is not some rabid right-wing critic but Thomas Edsall, a Washington Post political reporter for a quarter-century who recently accepted an early retirement offer.

In an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Edsall said he is pro-choice on abortion and does not think he has ever voted for a Republican presidential candidate. He said he believes that reporters vote Democratic by somewhere between 15 to 1 and 25 to 1.
