A Little Whine Made From Sour Grapes

Some words from the Special Report Grapevine:

That interview with Vice President Cheney didn't go over well with our competitors at CNN. Political commentator Paul Begala, who is also a Democratic operative, called FOX News, "the house organ for the Republican Party" and compared Cheney sitting down with FOX to Khrushchev giving an interview to Pravda."

And someone named Jack Cafferty said, "It didn't exactly represent a profile in courage for the vice president to wander over there to the F-word network,” calling the interview, "a little bit like Bonnie interviewing Clyde." What's more, while CNN had video clips of the interview available, it chose not to run them, instead using unattributed fullscreen quotes that did not mention that the interview was from FOX News.

In all fairness to Begala and company, I suppose I too would be more than just a bit bitter towards a network that relegated me to irrelevance by checking the unfair spin of the media-left.
