Goodbye Bias?

New piece by David Carr at NYT probes his view that media coverage of past few days, super critical toward Obama, disproves right-wing claims of "liberal bias."  As usual, reporters go where the "good story" is.  Of course, in my view, this is also the definition of pack journalism, and reporters and pundits usually go overboard, and even did so, in this case.  Still, Tucker Carlson is unconvinced-- media still in the tank for the Dems, they just couldn't oppose the (of course) stupendous Romney debate performance.   "This election has made clear, as in Hollywood, nobody knows anything. But if the media is putting a thumb on the scale, its usually one that points toward anything more exciting than what they are already covering."
