George H.W. Calls a Spade a Spade

Republican leaders need to step up to the plate and out the partisans masquerading as journalists as the President's father has:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush's father accused the news media of "personal animosity" toward his son and said he found the criticism so unrelenting he sometimes talked back to his television set.

"It's one thing to have an adversarial ... relationship -- hard-hitting journalism -- it's another when the journalists' rhetoric goes beyond skepticism and goes over the line into overt, unrelenting hostility and personal animosity," former President George Bush said.
It's not just George W. Bush who is a target, of course; the mainstream media has pretty much cast aside the mask of objectivity in reporting from the Middle East and Israel as well, and the Washington Post ran a virtual campaign to get Jim Webb elected in Virginia. The New York Times, among its multiple acts of treason exposing classified government programs, ran a diagram showing terrorist insurgents exactly where to shoot American troops for the best chance to make a kill.

The time for treating the mainstream media "journalists" with diplomacy has passed. Non-DNC candidates should be challenging the Press at every opportunity.
