Quantifying the obvious

Media Channel presents finely culled data that quantifies the obvious: the major networks present W in negative terms, and Kerry in positive terms.

While not a surprise or shock (depending on your political bent), it is unfortunate. And it is not limited to broadcast journalism. How can the Seattle Post Intelligencer use this headline? An accused spy worked with Democratic legislators for ten years but it is more relevant to state that she is twice removed by blood from a Bush staffer? That's pathetic.
