It's been over a month since a Los Angeles Times story covering the 150th fundraiser President Obama had attended (this one at $25,000 a head), this one held in Los Angeles on a gay theme. The end of the story carried the startling acknowledgement by one attendee, CBS News head Les Moonves, that he and his wife were there because he thinks the President has done a wonderful job in supporting gay marriage. As to the appropriateness of a broadcast network news chief giving public support to a candidate, the LA Times reported, Moonves said that "ultimately journalism has changed ... partisanship is very much a part of journalism now."
Well, now that's settled. Perhaps conservatives will remember that the next time CBS calls to request an interview.
Of course, there is a conservative slant to several Fox TV commentators and certainly a "progressive" slant to MSNBC. At a movie theater in Seattle the other evening an ad appeared before the film with Rachel Maddow of MSNBC standing in front of a field of windmills like a cheerier Don Quixote. This is the future, she declared, and the future is with MSNBC. "Forward" said the big print across the screen. Of course, Forward is also the slogan of the 2012 Obama Campaign.
All in all, maybe it is progress to know where folks are coming from.
