Washington Press Corp Circling The Wagons Over Stewart?

On CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday program there was a panel discussion about comedian Jon Stewart's debate that took place a week earlier on the Fox Sunday program with host Chris Wallace. Stewart made the assertion that a portion of his interview had been edited by FOX to leave out relevant information that Fox executives hand out "talking points" to their news anchors to read on-air.

The odd thing I've noticed recently is whenever anyone is critical of the corporate news media, regardless of what network it is, they all "circle the bandwagon" to protect one another. The panel discussion on CNN yesterday was just one more example of this mentality by the media.

Watch the clip of this discussion and see if you come away with the same response I have.
