Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

The disparity of coverage

I remarked the other day on the seeming biases of the Cable News Talking Heads, and while many from the 90's accused CNN of being the Clinton News Network (and some still do!) Nothing paints the obvious biases better than this video from Slate, put out after Michelle Obama's Monday nights speech. It's between MSNBC & Fox News

Beyond political bias though, notice the tonal quality of each network's remarks - gracious vs. indignant (as an aside, Bill Kristol reminds me of a pimple that needs to be popped)
What's truly suprising though is Chris Wallace's reaction, himself not a talking head but a journalist, I suppose it goes to show the influence that one's environs has on one's mode of thinking and orating.
