What a Difference Eight Years Makes

Byron York reports about eight years ago the Washington Post Headline reads:
Vote On Ashcroft Is Delayed A Week; Democrats Cite Need for More Review

Now, what is the headline? You guessed it:
Republicans Obstruct Holder's Path to Justice Department

Don't try to tell me the WAPO is "objective", it is not. Now, that is no pejorative, the WAPO has every right to report on events the way it feels. In fact, I think it would be a lot better for the national debate for news bodies come out and admit what side they shill for.
