    If the name Richard Armitage is here, I've missed it:

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/ap_on_re_us/cia_leak_trial

    Surprisingly the article fails to mention:

    Sandy Berger
    , or Webb Hubble , as examples of 'president's men that had 'issues.' I'm sure that was just an 'oversite.'

    No oversight, Kathianne. As we are well aware, only Republicans receive that kind of scornful publicity in the MSM. When Dems do it, the MSM comes up with some pretty good verbage to excuse the crime and mock those who express concern.

    Oh no. Yahoo did not mention Berger in the same article! You blow the whole thing out of proportion. Just do a search for Sandy Berger on Yahoo News. You will find some pieces. Besides Yahoo is not the only news source for Americans. If you want to find articles to confirm your bias, whatever your bias may be, it is not difficult to do.

    Anyway, check out:

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ibd/20070112/bs_ibd_ibd/2007111issues01

    Of course you have news from World Net Daily:

    http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=53697

    Here is something from the Washington Times.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/national/20070110-120727-4365r.htm

    Bottom line: You can practically always find what you are looking for and complain that the news that you want broadcasted is not shouted all of the time from every news source.

    Matts, I'm shocked and dismayed that you missed the context.

    “Libby joins a long list of presidents' men to face charges in the federal courthouse in the nation's capital — Bob Haldeman and John Ehrlichman in Watergate, Adm. John Poindexter and Marine Col. Oliver North in Iran Contra.”

    Okay. If Democrats who are to face, or recently faced, charges in the federal courthouse in the nation’s capital, then they should be included in the article. If the article went on and on with a long list of alleged Republican wrongdoers without mentioning a Democrat wrongdoer, I would be more miffed about bias. Without it, I don’t see that much bias here. The article is predominantly about the Bush team and the Libby trial.

    Anyway, if you don’t like the Yahoo “bias” limit yourself to National Review”.

    But you aren't miffed at all, so you couldn't be 'more miffed'?
    Another problem with the MSM, not just AP: Sandy Berger. Opening and concluding paragraphs:
