The MSM's "Special Friends" Treatment

Here's an explosive little item about the MSM and their 'special friends,' which tends to anecdotally confirm what everybody already knows:

In spite of his strong affiliation with the Democratic Party, Chris refused to print any negative stories about Craig, the very Republican Senator, and took advantage of many opportunities to portray him in a positive light. When I took over editorial duties, he asked me to essentially continue this policy. While I did not feel it was appropriate to promote Senator Craig, we reached an agreement that I would not run negative stories about Craig, unless the stories had already been widely circulated by other news outlets.

The newspaper is the Idaho World; "Chris" was a very special friend of ex-Sen. Larry Craig, and their special relationship had begun in college.
