The So-Called Liberal Media

Here is an example of what goes for neutral commentary in the so-called liberal media (SCLM). It is from the CNN Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, on October 17:

BLITZER: Thank you very much.

We've got a new CNN-USA Today-Gallup poll just out right now, first time we're releasing these numbers, taken over the past few days. Among likely voters, take a look at this, 52 percent for President Bush, 44 percent for Senator Kerry, Ralph Nader at 1 percent. Registered voters, 49 percent for President Bush, 46 percent for Senator Kerry, 1 percent for Ralph Nader.

It looks good, at least those numbers. Other polls show slightly different numbers. By all accounts, though, I think you'll agree, Secretary Evans, it's going to be very close.
(Bolds mine.)

So do you think that Blitzer shows some liberal bias here, hmh?
