Media Meltdown, part XXVII...

It's truly amazing to watch, as the Democrat Party slumps into minority status, how foaming-at-the-mouth crazy the Old Media are getting, and how their mask of "objectivity" is more and more being discarded. Here's another egregious example, from Drudge:

An internal memo written by ABCNEWS Political Director Mark Halperin admonishes ABC staff: During coverage of Democrat Kerry and Republican Bush not to "reflexively and artificially hold both sides 'equally' accountable."

The controversial internal memo obtained by DRUDGE, captures Halperin stating how "Kerry distorts, takes out of context, and mistakes all the time, but these are not central to his efforts to win."

But Halperin claims that Bush is hoping to "win the election by destroying Senator Kerry at least partly through distortions."

"The current Bush attacks on Kerry involve distortions and taking things out of context in a way that goes beyond what Kerry has done," Halperin writes...

... Halperin states the responsibilities of the ABCNEWS staff have "become quite grave."...

The funy thing is that Republicans don't need to distort the Senator's record and positions. They are utterly damning unembellished.
