    Fox News reversed poll results regarding the teacher situation in Madison, WI. Later issued a "correction" and made a brief apology. If anyone thinks this was a harmless and innocent error, I'll sell you a bridge. Fox news...fair and balanced? Well....

    Gee, I guess you showed them! Imagine, incorrectly reporting something and then correcting it afterward.

    Disgraceful.

    I'm sure folks will flock to MSNBC with that news... if they can find it.

    Yeah, it's not quite Fox News' style, usually they don't correct afterwards.

    Well, what have we here? As if on cue...

    "NBC Mislabels Dem Mayor as 'R' After Providence Fires All Its School Teachers"

    So a bunch of Providence school teachers get the axe, and NBC labels the Democrat Mayor of Providence as a Republican.

    Ain't that cozy?


    Now THAT'S NBC's style.

    Actually, not really. The LSM's style is not to even label Democrat politicians with a "D" when this kind of stuff happens.

    It was tough to find a "D" after Spitzer's name after he turned out to be Client #9.

    some mahogany chairs would be good. better than fabric as the diners will eventually spill something. no sense in making them feel guilty or having to replace the chairs. yes, wooden chairs for the cafe.
