Dan Rather Laments “Double Standard” in Media

Yeah, it threw me off the first time I heard it too. But there he is, on MSNBC, telling Joe "Not The Plumber" Scarborough: "Well, I think the point is well taken, Joe, that certainly if Sarah Palin had said this it would be above the fold in most newspapers today." Dan is right about one other thing (and his being right about much doesn't happen often); this is one YouTube clip that will rack up some serious hits on the internet.

Whether it gets much attention in the mainstream is something else altogether. But let's look on the bright side; at least CNN is asking Clinton's former Secretary of State Madeline Albright about it. Ed Morrissey of Hot Air writes: "Even Albright would have to admit that a known quantity in the White House would provide less of a temptation to start provoking the US to test our responses..."

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
