So-called "liberal" media praised for following Party line

USNews.com: Washington Whispers (2/14/05):

While Fox News Channel remains the favorite network of Republican lawmakers, NBC's new anchor, Brian Williams, is the one turning GOP heads. Message guru and former MSNBC contributor Frank Luntz says in a confidential memo to Hill leaders that Williams has emerged as the "go-to network anchor" because of his brains and "lack of detectable ideological bias."

Luntz credits NBC Executive Producer Steve Capus for "a flawless transition to a new generation of news anchor." Still, Fox and CNN lead the nets when it comes to GOP loyalty.

Good thing we have a press loyal to the Party. Nothing gets in the way of the wondeful world of spreading democracy like the press performing its watchdog functions.


I think he meant that the GOP is loyal to Fox and CNN, not the other way around. Plus, "loyal" appears outside of the quoted material, so it's not clear what the memo said specifically on the topic of allegiance.
