Journalistic Bias At CNN?

GOP questions activities of Carville, Begala, on behalf of Kerry Campaign.

"It's not like I'm on a news show," Mr. Carville said, adding, "Why can't I host the most polemic talk show on television?"

Well, because JOURNALISTS and NEWS PERSONALITIES are supposed to remain formally neutral in political campaigns. You would have a fit if Joe Scarborough or Sean Hannity became advisers to the Bush campaign, made appearances for and represented them, and then claimed that it was irrelevant to their jobs. You would rightly be claiming that allowing them to keep their shows would be providing aid to the Bush camp -- as CNN does by keeping you and Begala on the air. That is our gripe here -- not that you are an active and partisan Democrat.
