I almost fell out of my chair this morning when I read this anti-GOP article from none other than the typically pro-Republican newspaper The Washington Post:
The authors take direct aim at the Tea Party movement, obstructionism, the filibuster, Newt Gingrich and Grover Norquist.
The article is not only odd compared to the typical angle the Post takes, but is so very biased in their statements that that the authors feel the need justify this fact at the end:
We understand the values of mainstream journalists, including the effort to report both sides of a story. But a balanced treatment of an unbalanced phenomenon distorts reality. If the political dynamics of Washington are unlikely to change anytime soon, at least we should change the way that reality is portrayed to the public.
So what do you think? Do the authors have it right? Debating the “facts” presented in the the details of the story would be much appreciated :)
