absolutely SUCKS

i listened to part of NPR's coverage of tomorrow's election in Wisconsin on my way home from work. as i so often do, i slammed in the CD in disgust before it was over. i listened longer than usual because i wanted to know if they would report on walker's legal problems. this is what i heard:

- walker is ahead in the polls (by how much, or how little you bastards?! they didn't say)
- if walker wins it's BIG BIG trouble for democrats and unions
- if walker wins it's trouble for the obama campaign
- if walker wins romney will be all over WI
- because of their fears about all of the above, top democrats in the state tried to head off the recall; they didn't want it to happen.

and that was it for me. i'm starting to think that NPR's adherence to false equivalencies has mutated into outright advocacy for republicans. it is really starting to make me sick.
