Your liberal media at work

From the story on Kay Bailey Hutchison’s official announcement that she’s running for reelection to the Senate:

No prominent candidates have announced plans to challenge Hutchison.

How nice of the reporter to decide for us who is a “real” candidate and who isn’t. And how nice of the Chronicle, who outsourced this task to the Associated Press, to leave that bit of editorializing in place despite the fact that Hutchison’s announced opponent, who’s been on the campaign trail for a year now, lives right here in Houston. Hey, everyone’s gonna vote for that polite moderate KBH anyway, so what does it matter, right?

    WHy on earth did the Chronicle and Express-News run a wire story on this? At least the Chron editors had enough sense to delete the reference )included in the Express-News) to KBH as “unbeatable”

    Fair and Balanced?

    Right, er Right-wing, I mean.

    I wait patiently for Kevin and Anne to weigh in with their usual Chronicle-bias-induced apoplectic indignation.

    Verrrrry patiently.
